After it became apparent that the Legislature wasn’t going to be able to finish everything and gavel out in time for the 90-day session, the House asked the governor to adjourn the Legislature. Although the Constitution has always allowed the governor to do this if the two bodies cannot agree upon adjournment, it’s the first time it’s ever happened.
When the governor adjourned the Legislature, he also called us back into special session to address specific issues. In this newsletter, I’ll run down the issues included in the call for special session and their status. Things are moving fast right now, so by the time you read this something will probably have changed.
