State Senate Pares Down Bills 

They’re trying to pare the number down before the next session starts in January.

The blueberry bill made it past the first hurdle, but many more are being set aside.

Including one that would ban the sale of energy drinks to minors, and another that would remove the pine cone and tassel as the state flower.

Other bills that didn’t make it this time around include one that would make graffiti art a crime, and another making it illegal to sell light bulbs that aren’t energy efficient.
