Here are the bills on the House  floors for Jan 26, which begins at 2:00 PM central. Since the House is starting to get a lot more bills hitting the floor I am doing the House & Senate in separate posts going forward.  I apologize for being late with this post, I had my first time dealing with bed bugs as a landlord today….

The only bill on the House side I am curious to watch the debate for is actually HCR 1001. I want to see if the floor debates the need for this…
