Rep. Loge: Legislature talks infrastructure

Print Article

This past week saw the House having a full agenda of bills every day. Most days we had over twenty bills to take action on during the House floor session. Those bills were either Senate bills or House bills with Senate amendments. Friday was day seventy-three, so time is running out for new bills to be able to come out of committee and cross both floors. My committees have only one session scheduled for each, scheduled for Tuesday. Unless a bill goes back to a committee for discussion or amendments, committee meetings will wind down this coming week. Other activites this past week are the heavy negotiations on infrastructure, bonding, appropriations, gas tax, and the overlooked aquatic and invasive species funding. These negotiations may make the final tweek of bills in committees before they make it out on the respective floor sessions. Day ninety is scheduled for the last day but many are in hopes the work will be done sooner. That prediction is wishful thinkers and time will tell the story.

On Palm Sunday, the House Chambers was the site of a very nice tribute to Senators and Legislators that passed away since the last legislative session. This ceremony is done every session with current legislators reading a memorial tribute to those that have passed on. Jennifer Fielder read a tribute for one of our former Senators, Fred Carl. I felt honored to be part of the ceremony by singing in the 12 person Capitol Choir and playing my trombone during the prelude. The chamber was filled with over two hundred people attending this humbling event.

We are in session only four days this week. We will be done on thursday and taking four days off for Easter break. We will be back in session on the eighteenth of April. Please feel free to contact me at home next weekend and have a Happy Easter.

— Representative Denley Loge, HD 14.
