STATE HOUSE – The Senate Judiciary Committee will be meeting today, Tuesday, January 21 at the RISE of the Senate (approximately 4:30 p.m.) in Room 313 of the State House to hear and/or consider two pieces of legislation that relate to 3D printed firearms and the state’s medical marijuana program.

The first bill (2020-S 2004), sponsored by Sen. Cynthia A.
