Last week the General Assembly adjourned on Tuesday afternoon to take a “spring break” so that members could spend time with their family over the Easter Holiday so the bills summarized below are those filed on Monday and Tuesday last week. The General Assembly returned on Wednesday, April 19th to a flurry of activity – over 100 bills were scheduled to be heard in over 20 committee meetings in one day! This hectic schedule will continue as the push is on to move bills before the cross-over deadline. The Deadline requires all bills that do not impact the budget or create new taxes must be approved by either the House or Senate by April 27th. If bills do not meet the deadline they can no longer be considered for the session. Although there are ways around this rule, like every rule at the General Assembly, bills that do not move before cross-over rarely get new life. Read the full report here.
