SB 434 Passes First Committee

On May 1, SB 434 passed the Senate Governance and Finance Committee on a partly line vote. It now heads to the Appropriations Committee.

There was a large audience for the hearing, but Chairwoman Senator Wolk significantly limited the amount of testimony. Senator Wolk had previously added herself as a primary author of the bill along with Senator Hill, something she explained she rarely does, and spent a significant amount of the hearing time promoting the drastic changes the bill would make to the Enterprise Zone program.

While the hearing was not captured on video, the following includes the audio for the 33 minutes of the hearing in which SB 434 was discussed:
