GOP Legislators Hoping to Pass High Profile Bills

-GOP legislators are striving to pass a list of high-profile bills this week that would improve care for the mentally ill, overhaul election laws and ban "revenge porn" and social media snooping by bosses and school administrators.

Their calendar could have been more contentious, but Republican leaders chose to remove two abortion bills from the week's to-do list after one Democratic senator vowed "all-out hell" if the measures came to the Senate floor.

Although there are nearly six months left until the session closes next spring, it feels like legislators are aiming to end early.

The week will serve up a spread of proposals for all political tastes: from sweet bipartisanship to bitter controversy on bills to change how the state runs elections. Assembly Speaker Robin Vos said the fall push sought to avoid an even greater pileup when the two-year legislative session effectively ends on May 1.
