Nearly 200 bills have already been pre-filed today by state representatives. Bills filed by state senators have not been made public yet, but are expected to be tomorrow.
Among the proposals filed include:
-A measure that would require both parents or legal guardian to be notified prior to a minor having an abortion. Rep. Rocky Miller filed the legislation. He offered a similar measure last year, but it did not pass.
-A bill from Rep. Brandon Ellington would raise the minimum wage to $10.25 an hour. He sponsored such a bill last year which didn’t make it out of committee.
-A so-called right to work measure has been filed by Rep. Eric Burlison, which he has carried for the last few years.
-A proposal by Rep. Keith English would ban texting while driving. He offered the bill this year, but it didn’t make it out of committee.
-Legislation by Rep. Joe Adams would change the laws for use of force by a police officer.
