Capitol Update is daily review of state government during the Legislative Session. Today’s topics include:

  • Lawmakers kicked off the 2022 legislative session with a State of the State address by the Governor touting his 99.7 billion dollar proposal – and plans to use all that money.
  • Some advocacy groups say a pair of redistricting maps approved by Senators don’t go far enough to protect minority voting rights.
  • Both the House and Senate agree on a sweet bill to make strawberry shortcake the official state dessert.
