SENATE SESSION – THURSDAY, NOV. 2, 2017

The Senate unanimously passed a bill (S 2191) that would direct colleges to develop sexual assault policies, postponed consideration of a bill (S 472) intended to prepare the state for climate change, and finally shipped the governor a bill (H 4008) intended to close the books on fiscal 2017, which ended June 30.
