Legislative Pace Increases

from Dodie Wellshear, KAFP Government Relations Consultant

The pace of the 2016 session increased dramatically this past week, as legislators work toward an early first adjournment on March 26. The Legislature is planning to adjourn the regular session early and bank some extra days for the Veto Session, which begins in late April. Many will remember that the Legislature went weeks past their statutory 90-day session last year and aren’t wanting a repeat of that, especially in an election year.

Legislative committees are working quickly through bill hearings and finalizing action on bills this week, so they may finish debating and conferencing on legislation the following week. more
