This week, I'm back in District, taking stock of the numerous controversial bills that were ram-rodded through the Senate at all hours of the day and night. During the last-minute legislative push that was Lame Duck session, several contentious bills, including a major criminal justice reform bill that some are calling a “backdoor defund police” plan, were pushed through the Camber. Senators also voted on major rewrites to existing laws, including the school code, labor laws, and an update to the recreational cannabis system.
As Senate Republicans, our goal is to encourage job growth by
developing an efficient, transparent, ethical state government
with less regulation and lower taxes. We must leave a legacy of
responsible government that will last for generations.
