Governor Hobbs Vetos Food Tax
Governor Katie Hobbs vetoed SB 1063 - a bill that would prohibit municipal governments from charging a sales tax on food - on Tuesday. In her veto letter, Hobbs said, "its clear this bill doesn't actually eliminate costs for our residents. It simply moves those costs around."

Committees Conclude Work
This week was the final week for committees to hear bills in opposite chamber of origin. The exception to the rule is the Appropriations Committees that will meet next week. If a bill does not receive a hearing, it is dead for the remainder of the legislative session.
