The Senate passed two bills and introduced two others during a brief afternoon floor session on Tuesday.
The body amended the House amendments and passed Senate Bill 2002. This legislation, which would allow certain tax information to be shared with designated DOH employee to ensure contractors on winning state highway bids are in good standing on their taxes, will now head back to the House of Delegates for consideration.
The Senate also suspended the constitutional rules to quickly pass Senate Bill 2005, which deals with finding and declaring claims against the state.
The Senate is in recess until 3 p.m.
