  • On Monday, March 29, HB1348 passed the full House on an 89-0 vote.  
  • On March 30, SB1205 passed the Senate Commerce & Labor Committee and was sent to the Senate Calendar Committee.   
SB1617/HB1398, sponsored by Senator Reeves and Representative Helton, contains the language of SB1205/HB1348, along with additional provisions related to PBMs.
