The legislature adjourned Thursday evening, March 19, and are not scheduled to return until April 27. Normally, this would have been the end of committee action on bills. But hardly anything has moved out of committee the last half of the regular session. As a result, they have adjusted the deadlines. We now have the week of April 27 to finish committee work and to get all the bills out of the second chamber before starting the conference committee process. We will have to wait to see what leadership will allow to move forward and the time frames for getting our bills out of committee.

Of course that schedule depends on the status of the COVID-29 situation as April 27 approaches. If they can't meet on April 27, they can return anytime until May 21 which is the latest day for them to reconvene.

If critical updates are warranted between my weekly reports they will be posted on this webpage.
