February 18th – 2013 Regular Legislative Session Day 36

We’re hearing four bills in the Appropriations Committee today. House Bill 1027 adopts a new child support economic table that does not differentiate amounts based on the children’s ages; requires an adjustment of the standard calculation based on "children not before the court”; amends the postsecondary educational support statute to, among other things, require the court to consider any grants or scholarships awarded to the child; and clarifies the self-support reserve limitation on the amount of child support ordered.

House Bill 1120 adds chaplains that volunteer with fire departments and volunteer law enforcement chaplains to those eligible for participation in the Volunteer Fire Fighters’ and Relief Officers’ Relief and Pension System.

House Bill 1211 requires the Secretary of State to print and distribute a voters’ pamphlet for the primary in even-numbered years and for the general election each year.

House Bill 1829 eliminates numerous accounts and transfers amounts remaining in those accounts to the State General Fund or another account; changes the Enterprise Services Account from a partially non-appropriated account to a fully non-appropriated account; and modifies other provisions relating to several accounts.
