From the Editor
Just a few hours before the close of the 2008 session, it looked like there would be a great deal of copy for this post legislative session edition of the Journal. But there’s no need to go into great detail about the omnibus housing bill because it will not become law this year. In the last few hours of the last day of session, SB 482, which included all the items from HB 699 and more, highlighted below, died when the House tacked on amendments that had either insufficient time, interest, or both to be taken up by the Senate. In short, no housing bill this year.
