Will They Play During the Recess?

June 17, 2024

When the General Assembly left town on May 13th and we all celebrated that we had a budget; the nuance that we did not report was that they were in “recess” and did not adjourn.  There are any number of reasons for the members to choose that option – the most common one is that they retain certain powers while “in Session” that they give up if they adjourn.

So – they are coming back to town!  The Senate will convene on the 18th of June and the House will convene on the 28th.  The state reason is to allow them to repair damage done to an education benefit for veterans and their families.  However, the Senate has a couple of other things on their agenda; while they do not specifically relate to our services or concerns, we will keep a close eye on the discussion and outcomes!
