Senate Journal: January 27th, 2015
We’re glad you came back… and we hope you keep coming back, because it’s always a good time!
Today on the Hill, we held floor time, press conferences, and honored former Speaker Becky Lockhart, who passed away a few weeks ago. It was a cool experience for us to see and meet with her strong family on the Senate Floor.
