2017 House Bill 4431: Expand legislative subpoena power
Introduced by Rep. Joseph Graves (R) on March 29, 2017
To give legislative committees the power to subpoena and investigate records of local governments, authorities, school districts and community colleges, rather than just state departments, boards, institutions, and agencies. One member of the party in the minority would have to agree. The bill would also limit committee subpoena power to the agencies or entities whose audits are directed to a particular committee. The full legislature would retain the more expansive subpoena powers though.   Official Text and Analysis.
