April is a very busy month in the Capitol with a full agenda of legislative policy committees and the Governor’s May Budget Revise set to be released in just a few weeks. 
 
In addition, April 27 is the last day for policy committee to hear and report to fiscal committees on fiscal bills introduced in their house of origin.
