The Legislature is on Passover/Easter break until Tuesday, April 7. Committees can resume meeting that morning and the House is scheduled to be in session at noon. Look for posts to Session Daily and our Facebook, Twitter and YouTube accounts to resume at that time. House offices will remain open except on Friday, April 3.
The House is expected to return to a full agenda that week when committee hearings resume. The governor is scheduled to give his State of the State address on Thursday, April 9 at 7 p.m. in the House chamber. Additionally, he is expected to release plans for funding capital projects that week.
Two of the three deadlines have passed for committees to finish up their work and many policy committee chairs have announced they plan no further meetings this session. However, that leaves plenty of time for the finance committee to craft their omnibus bills with an April 24 deadline for completion of that work.
Members must constitutionally finish their work by May 18.
