The 2023 legislative session is closing in on its final days. The session must end by Monday, May 22, but many policy and budget items remain in limbo for the state House and Senate to pass. The Environment, Natural Resources, Climate and Energy Conference Committee adopted the environment budget on Friday, May 12. Policy items remained incomplete on Tuesday, but the conference committee planned to reconvene no later than Wednesday morning to consider and possibly adopt the policy matters. Items left out of the budget were increases to fishing licenses and AIS surcharges.
