SB 5667 is the same as HB 1643 with the exception of two dates: HB 1643 requires the workgroup to report its findings and recommendations no later than Dec. 1, 2015 and SB 5667 requires such findings/recommendations by Dec. 1, 2016. Further, SB 5667 has an expiration date of June 30, 2017, while HB 1643 includes an expiration date of June 30th, 2016.
SB 5667 was referred to and heard in the Senate Ways and Means Committee, but was not scheduled for executive action and therefore is dead. The bill was amended onto another bill, SB 5915, that was passed by the Senate. See SB 5915.
