House ends session after 10 hours on floor

Just before midnight Wednesday, the House adjourned. Republican leaders saved a number of controversial measures for the end with a measure to reject Sharia law as the grand finale of the night. The lawmakers spent about 10 hours on the floor. Most bills were approved, such as an ALEC-drawn measure to exempt food companies from liability lawsuits, nga bill asserting religious freedom and another to require health insurers to cover autism. Two bills were shot down: a bill to create a new kind of corporations and a bill to grant local law enforcement officers whistleblower protections. (See a more detailed roundup in the morning.

The House returns at 11:30 a.m. to consider the final measures in crossover week and thankfully, it won't be too long of a day, leaders said. But it does start early with appropriatiosn and finance committee meetings.
