Brace yourself for the final stretch

Hold on to your seats… and your wallets! The legislative session is rounding the curve into the final stretch.

We have exactly one week to go in the 2020 regular legislative session. Tomorrow is the final cut-off deadline for the Senate to approve bills that originated in the House of Representatives. Exceptions are made for bills necessary to implement the budget; those votes will be coming next week.

This week has had us working all day and late into the evening, passing bills out of the chamber. The quick pace is a key indicator that the end of the session is near. But there is still much work left to be done as Senate and House budget leaders reconcile differences in their proposals to produce a single set of supplemental budgets for approval by both chambers and the governor.

I’ll keep you updated, but in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
