Capitol Update is a weekly review of state government. Topics this week include:
- The only bill teed up so far for consideration on the floor of either chamber is a House bill that would require parental consent before a minor could have an abortion.
- A ban on fracking was approved by its first Senate committee with two more committees to go. The House ban on fracking has been assigned to three committees.
- The Governor and lawmakers from both parties support legislation that would allow college athletes to earn money from endorsement deals.
