2012 Supplemental Session: Week 9

This week represents the ninth week of the 2012 supplemental session and the final week.

March 8 marks the end of the supplemental session and sine die.  The focus for both the House and Senate is primarily on floor action in an effort to move bills to the Governor’s desk prior to the end of the session.

This week would normally be focused on passing a supplemental budget and any policy bills necessary to implement the budget. However given the events of Friday evening it is unclear if the Legislature will be able to find agreement on the budget prior to the March 8 deadline.

As both chambers continue to meet to discuss a potential budget agreement, committees – both policy and fiscal committees – are holding some hearings to focus on interim planning which are posted on the Legislature’s website.
