Summer break around the corner for state lawmakers

Posted by wlpo on May 25, 2015

Schools aren’t the only places of business closing for summer vacation this week. Lawmakers in Springfield will head home after the spring session ends Sunday.

It remains to be seen if any action will happen on big issues like the budget, pensions or raising the minimum wage. If you enjoy e-cigarettes, there’s a bill being talked about that would ban indoor smoking of e-cigarettes in same places that traditional cigarettes are already banned.

Some of the more unusual proposed bills include naming an official state polka song and making it illegal for radio stations to use sirens or car crash sound effects in commercials.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
