Friends and Neighbors,
We are quickly approaching the end of the 60-day session at the Legislature. This is a ‘short’ legislative session where we provide funding for unexpected expenses, fine-tune the biennial budgets agreed upon last year, and address time-sensitive policy issues. Bills are passing in both chambers, supplemental operating and capital budgets are being negotiated, and the midnight oil is burning. It is a fast-paced and exciting time at the capitol!
