Guest: Lauren Hierl

On this week’s episode of the Democracy Dispatch Podcast, Lauren Hierl joins for our annual halftime report on the eve of the legislative crossover (when House bills need to be moved to the Senate, and vice versa). This year, the crossover deadline is Friday, March 15th.

Our halftime report is an expanded version of our weekly Session Shakedown segment, where we recap the last week in the State House and give a preview of what is in store. But this time, we’ll be giving an overview and updates on all of our priority policies for the session – what the bills look like, what committees have taken them up, action that’s happened, and the anticipated forecast for the rest of the session.

We update you on the latest surrounding Act 250, climate resilience and flood mitigation, the Renewable Energy Standard, cleaner transportation solutions, banning neonicotinoid pesticides, PFAS, the updated bottle bill, and ranked choice voting.
