After several weeks of inaction in the House, SB 13 may be on the move again. After passing the Senate, the bill that prohibits payroll deduction of association dues for many public employees, including teachers, sat in limbo in the House, not referred to a committee (a necessary step before a bill can receive a committee hearing). But Monday, the bill was referred to the House State Affairs Committee, potentially setting the stage for a quickly-called committee hearing sometime this week.

Senate bills must make it through the committee process and be set on a House calendar by Sunday, May 21, if they are to survive.
