Legislative Prospective

We still don’t know. Special House and Senate committees heard hours of testimony and reviewed evidence in hearings last week on contested legislative races from the Nov. 3 elections, one in each chamber. The Senate committee is expected to make a recommendation Monday to the full chamber whether to seat Democrat Bob Dearing or Republican Melanie Sojourner, or call a new election for District 37. The House committee is expected to do likewise as early as Tuesday on the District 79 contest between Democrat Bo Eaton and Republican Mark Tullos.
