Capitol Update is a weekly review of state government. Topics this week include:
- Coronavirus cases in the state reached new record highs, while the Governor explains why he wants to keep the state open.
- Lawmakers sent next year’s budget to the Governor – who promises television drama worthy cuts to account for fiscal impacts from the coronavirus pandemic.
- Two major decisions from the nation’s highest court came down – one which could breathe new life into anti-discrimination legislation supported by dozens of state lawmakers.
