Count: 37 bills have become law
Gov. Mary Fallin has signed 37 bills into law in regular session, not including special session measures that would raise revenue and send more money to public education.
Most of the bills, however, are typical legislative fare. On Thursday, one of the 18 bills she signed that day set minimum inspection guidelines for hot water heaters.
So far, Fallin hasn’t vetoed any of the bills sent to her desk by lawmakers, but the pace of legislation receiving final passage in the House or Senate is about to get faster.
The last committee deadlines have expired, so lawmakers are now trying to get their remaining bills on the floor. The Legislature still has work to do on the Fiscal Year 2019 budget that begins July 1.
