Session in the final countdown

With two weeks to go before regular session adjournment, the Legislature is on track to finish on time, but unless legislative leaders and the governor can agree on how to resolve the $6.4 billion budget deficit, we could be headed into overtime. Thursday is the fifth and final committee deadline, when conference committees are to have their bills to the floor. The Higher Education Conference Committee meets this morning at 9:00 and will continue discussing the policy provisions in the two bills. Schedules will be fluid over the next two weeks.

At the Capitol:
Legislative schedules are available for the House and Senate.
