Last night, Tuesday, March 29th, the State Senate took up the first two budget bills, which dealt with economic development, transportation and the consolidation of State agencies, such as Corrections and Parole. As the ranking member of the Crime Victims, Crime and Corrections committee, Senator Rivera pledged to stay vigilant to ensure that these two agencies' stated objectives and functions remain separate and independent of each even after their merger.
