Legislative Session Suspended Until May 15

April 30, 2020

The Legislative Council met via teleconference Wednesday and voted unanimously to continue the suspension of the 2020 legislative session. The council, made up of leaders from both parties in the House and Senate, decided to continue the suspension for another two weeks. Before the Legislature first suspended the session on March 17, they approved the budget through the month of August, which gives them time to take into account the effects of the virus on the state’s economy when they come back into session and craft the budget for FY21.
