Deadline Approaching for Digital Printing Bill
First passage of a constitutional amendment that would allow legislation to be read electronically, instead of printed, was accomplished last year by the state Legislature. The amendment still needs to be approved by the end of the legislative session, which is June 20, and approved in a public referendum this fall or in 2014.
With a month to go in session, the proposal is sitting in Senate’s Judiciary Committee with no signs of movement and hasn’t been introduced in the Assembly. If it isn’t passed this year, the state Legislature would have to start the two-year process over again next year.
