A busy end to the week

This week ended in a big flurry of final action on bills. Ratification is the stage where final votes have been taken and the presiding officers sign the bills. Legislative action July 11 and 12 resulted in 11 bills being ratified today (July 12), while final votes were taken July 12 on 22 bills that will be ratified Monday night.  Local bills become law on ratification, public bills then move on to the Governor’s office.  Our legislative website has a page to keep up with bills being ratified. The list of bills ratified July 12 or to be ratified July 16 appear below the fold.
