The Senate will take up the high-capacity wells bill when it hits the floor this morning, as well as SB 49, which would alter the eligibility criteria for broadband expansion grants and add $15 million to the program.

Senators also are to vote on the confirmation of Jay Risch as DFI secretary.

Meanwhile, the Assembly this afternoon will take up nine special session bills looking to curb opioid abuse, all of which received unanimous approval from the Joint Finance Committee.

The Assembly will also take up a bill on multiple jurisdiction health departments and another that would designate cheese as the state’s dairy product.
