As a Senator, here are many who have asked about the status of legislation that ay be priorities to participants of this taskforce. There is no date for a reconvening of the legislature, and when we do return, it could be for the state budget only. So if you have apiority that is not in the budget, let me and most importantly, others, that there is important other work that needs to be done
