Work continues at the state Capitol, albeit at a far slower pace than earlier in the session.

There are still a number of bills awaiting votes — including three related to COVID-19 and the pandemic, with one seeking to ban schools from implementing COVID-19 vaccination requirements.

This comes as lawmakers face a June 30 deadline to pass a new state budget.
