Session Adjourns Early
Amidst Health Worries
The 2020 General Assembly came to a halt after only 71 days, as legislators responded to public concerns about group meetings and the spread of the coronavirus. The legislature focused on “priority legislation” in its waning days, and adjourned sine die on Wednesday, March 18. Conduit Street this week has coverage of major legislation – stay tuned next week for a thorough wrap-up of all the county issues, and their final disposition in this most unusual session.
