The state legislature begins their second “Funnel Week” tomorrow.  This week is the second of two weeks during the legislative session that establishes a cut off date of when bills have to come out of committees.  All Senate bills must be out of House Committees and all House bills must be out of Senate Committees by the end of the week in order to still be eligible for debate.

This funnel trims down more legislation eligible for consideration by both Chambers.  Like the first funnel, this deadline does not apply to all legislation.

Any Ways and Means bills and Appropriations bills where tax and spending bills are required to be approved are exempt from this requirement.  KCII will receive updates from Representative Jarad Klein and Senator Sandy Greiner later this week on the progress of Funnel Week.
