December 28, 2017

Get ready for the second session of the 87th General Assembly beginning Monday, January 8. Click here for a timeline of the 100-day session, including important legislative milestones like funnel dates that help winnow down the amount of “live” legislation as session progresses.

Gov. Reynolds will give her first State of the State address on Tuesday, January 9 and will present her budget and other priorities to the Legislature at that time.

April 17th is the scheduled final day of session, when legislator per diems are slated to end. However, as you have read in past newsletters, it is common for session to extend past the scheduled date of adjournment.
