Committee hearings are on Thursday and Friday see bill listings below for each chamber
All bills not listed here have not been tracked, laid over or have passed or failed the 1st chamber

The first bills to be acted on are the bills that are amended (those with the A after the calendar #) on the 6th order and then finaled immediately on the 11th order

I looked at HB are right,there are a lot of amendments.The original bill said guides could not day lease.Now it says they can for $200.The only leased land restriction is that they have to pay $50 for the first 5,000 acres and $100 for every 5000 after that.Not much of a restriction.Also the number of outfitters in the original bill said 200.That now says...are issued in the 5th annual issue of licenses under this act...What the heck does that mean???
