A Second Bill to Eliminate Sunshine Committee ... Kind Of

In addition to SB 5119, the bill addressing solely the Sunshine Committee, a second bill, HB 1497, would eliminate all 470 state boards and commissions. Specifically, section 201(78) of HB 1497 would eliminate the Sunshine Committee.

Tip of the hat to Ramsey Ramerman of the "Axis Law Group" (Foster Pepper) for alerting og-blog to this one.
