Your tip sheet: A firefighter protection bill on the horizon

Days remaining in the 2017 Legislative session: 33

The House and Senate will start at 10. The House has its very first bill to vote on:   HB 43 , the amended budget for the rest of this fiscal year. At 1 p.m. the Fleming subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee  (Civil) will take up HB 82 , which would require public notice when companies or other “data collectors” release personal information accidentally (or are hacked). We also expect a few bill filings, including a new version of the firefighters protection bill that the governor vetoed earlier this year.
