It’s crossover! This is an important time in the legislative calendar. It’s the deadline when bills need to pass out of their policy committees to stay on track for passage (in its simplest form). Bills will be “crossing over” to the other chamber soon, which means we have a lot of House and Senate floor votes coming up!

This week on the Climate Dispatch, we have VNRC’s Johanna Miller and VCV’s Lauren Hierl catching us up on where our priority bills stand, and which are on track to meet the crossover deadline.
