Good morning everyone:
We start this week wishing condolences to the family of state Sen. Bud Estes, who passed away early Saturday morning after a long illness. His passing brought an outpouring of sadness Saturday after losing someone who has been in the Legislature since 2013 and presided over one of the most influential committees in the Senate.
Let's move on to the significant stories that we published and the news you may have missed but need to know.
