Moving toward adjournment
from Dodie Wellshear, KAFP Government Relations Consultant
It's hard to believe that in less than two weeks, the Legislature will adjourn its regular session. April 3 marks the scheduled date, although legislators will likely wrap up on April 2 to avoid working on Good Friday.
House committees have largely wrapped up their work, although the Senate Assessment and Taxation Committee – a committee exempted from most legislative deadlines – will hold a hearing on the governor's alcohol and tobacco tax proposal on Tuesday afternoon.
Both chambers are planning to run their respective "mega budgets" this week with the hope that conference committees can begin hammering out bill differences as soon as Wednesday.
