Bills Passed in the House: April 13

April 18, 2022
We were at the Capitol today debating and voting on a variety of bills. Among the bills we passed are the following:
Our state's nonprofits have helped to guide many of our communities through the past couple years – providing critically needed support even as their own staffing levels and resources were strained. As those same nonprofits work to ensure they can meet the still increasing needs of our communities, the House just took steps to ensure that nonprofit charitable property tax exemptions are protected.

Senior Citizens remain a vulnerable population, with many regularly relying on meal delivery services. The House just passed HB 5231 to collect important information to ensure we are providing nutritional resources to those who need it. Read more HERE.
Pressurized gas cylinders can pose a serious safety hazard when not disposed of properly. With the House Passage of HB 5142, the companies that produce these cylinders will work with transfer stations and big box stores to ensure these cylinders are safely returned and recycled. Read more HERE.
