Capitol Update is a weekly review of state government. Topics this week include:
- More than 100 new laws took effect July 1st – including the nearly 91 billion dollar budget – the largest in state history.
- Soon after the Legislature’s version of Amendment 4 was signed into law, organizations filed suit against the bill that determines which felons would be eligible to vote.
- Lawmakers pledged to make big changes to the health care system – several bills they passed becoming law that they say will lower costs and improve access.
