The Senate convened at 9am and quickly passed SB 5 – the economic development bill with an appropriation of $410M. After their caucus, they passed SB 1 – related to Education which among other things ends the statewide mask mandate for childcare centers and schools, SB 2 – the healthcare bill related to COVID-19 and SB 3 – the $69M appropriation bill related to COVID-19.
