Senate Bill 6002, 2014 Supplemental Operating Budget. Final passage in the House on March 13, 2014 by a vote of 85-13.

After the bill was amended in the House and the Senate refused to concur in the amendments, a conference committee of House and Senate members reached a compromise. As passed, the bill adds about $155 million in spending to the $33.6 billion two-year budget approved last year, including $58 million more for school supplies and technology; $22 million more for mental health programs, and $25 million more for the opportunity scholarship fund.

House Bill 2789, Restricting technology enhanced surveillance systems by public agencies. Passed the Senate on March 7, 2014 by a vote of 46-1.

This bill imposes restrictions on state and local agency procurement and usage of extraordinary sensing devices, defined as sensing devices attached to unmanned aircraft systems.
