Senate passes hourly fee for public records searches

Delegate Charlotte Lane, R-Kanawha, disagreed, saying in her view, the federal government may learn something from the states that have legalized medical marijuana.

The Texas House of Representatives took a significant step Monday when a bill decriminalizing marijuana possession throughout the state passed out of the Texas House Criminal Jurisprudence Committee. The committee did take out a controversial advertising provision that was in the House bill concerning internet speeds.

That version of the legislation passed through the House, but ran into a roadblock in the Senate, due to a rule barring any legislation with similar language to a bill that was defeated from being heard in that chamber during the same session.

The bill sponsor, state Sen. Gov. Asa Hutchinson has signed into law a dozen bills aimed at regulating the state's voter-approved medical marijuana law.

The bill as now written will likely generate strong pushback from universities' supporters, who are already alarmed by dramatic cuts to their schools in the proposed Senate budget.

Qualifying patients would pay an annual $50 fee, which was lowered from the $200 fee included in the Senate's version. Though it passed 65-25 in the House, HB 1329 was defeated Friday in the Senate by a vote of 37-7.

By a 28-6 vote, senators approved to the amended version of Senate Bill 386.

The games will make up the third from last weekend of the Premier League season, and are likely to still have plenty up for grabs. There are probably five teams fighting for that top four. "But I think City will hurt Arsenal on more occasions".

"I think there's probably too many bills unfinished", he said.

Heather Fazio, Texas political director with the Marijuana Policy Project, said the bill shouldn't be seen as radical but rather a "moderate shift in how Texas manages low-level marijuana offenses" - one that's in line with the majority in Texas who, according to polls, already support the measure.

After heated debate Monday night, delegates narrowly rejected an amendment to let patients with prescriptions grow their own plants.

But the bills have a few things in common as well, such as the requirement that growers also process and dispense the marijuana, rather than having separate growers and retail shops, and the tracking system that was added to Bradley's bill in the committee hearing.

"Today what we are trying to do is bring to the office of the governor not more power, but more coordination, for the growth of jobs in this state", Republican Sen. Shott described the new bill as a "much more aggressive" measure.

The Senate bill keeps funding for voluntary prekindergarten flat, rather than the $175 million increase that Dayton wants.

Rep. Robin Weisz (R-Hurdsfield) said the bill is not flawless - but. "... I've done this in my course of employment, hired people and tried to give them a second chance".
