A day after citizens demonstrated in front of the state Supreme Court chambers, a Senate committee passed three reform bills - Impartial Justice, Judicial Right to Know and Truth in Campaigning.

This morning’s approval by the Senate Committee on Campaign Finance Reform, Rural Issues and Information Technology clears the way for the bills to be debated and voted on by the full Senate.
