Lawmakers are midway through this year's session and there's still a lot of work to do.  Lawmakers want to make State Government more efficient, while raising taxes are unlikely. Sx bills have been signed by the Governor after being approved by the House and Senate. Yet, almost 3000 bills have been proposed since earlier this year. 

Conger Reviews the Past Few Months…
Now that he has a few months of legislative work under his belt, 1110 KBND asked Representative Jason Conger is being a Congressman is all he thought it would be. Although Conger says he didn't realize the breadth of bills that the house needs to consider each session, “I knew it was going to be hectic. I knew it was going to be very fast paced and a lot of work. I didn't realize quite how many bills would be introduced." Conger says which bills get heard first is a very political process: “The bill is introduced, and then it gets assigned by the Speakers' Office. And we have, because it’s a 30-30 split in the Legislature; there's two Speakers; 2 Co-Speakers. So that whole process, of the assignment, what committee, obviously there' a lot of forum shopping going on. You know, if you want a bill to pass you might put it in one committee, if you want it to die, you might put it in another." In all, Conger says he is very honored to be our Congressman.
