2019 Legislative Session | Week 8
We are officially in the home stretch of the 2019 Legislative Session. Budget Conference meetings were conducted this week in which the House and Senate compromised to reach agreements on many budgetary line items. All issues not agreed upon by the conference committees have now been "bumped" to the Appropriations Chairs of each committee. Chairs Bradley and Cummings will work to resolve these issues and will then send any unresolved issues to President Galvano and Speaker Oliva. Galvano and Oliva will work to produce a single budget by early next week in order to end session as scheduled on May 3rd.

There are many bills still to be heard in both Chambers and floor sessions have been lasting late into the night this week with meetings ending shortly before midnight. Next week is shaping up to be a busy week as members work to pass the remaining pieces of proposed legislation.
