Happy Crossover Day! You’ll probably be seeing a number of posts today about various bills that are sprinting to the legislative deadline before being considered legislatively DOA. Browsing through a few of the bills on the Senate rules calendar, here are a few that piqued my interest:
- SB 292 – Requirement of Drug Testing When Receiving Public Assistance (There’s a similar one to this in the House)
- SB 460 – Allowance for religious institutions to be exempt from having to provide contraceptive coverage in a health benefit policy
- SB 469 – Prohibition of mass picketing at private residences
- SB 468 – “The Bicycle Bill” that would make bicyclists not impede flowing traffic on two lane highways. (Queen’s “Bicycle Race” just popped into my head…I hope it did yours….you’re welcome)
That’s all for now, but I’ll go back through the rules calendar and take a gander at a few more bills and post them here in an update. Feel free to discuss Crossover Day in the comments below.

The House has just resolved itself into a Committee of the Whole House in order to discuss the FY 2013 budget HB 742.
