Most legislative committees shut down Friday to make time for extended floor sessions as the second major deadline approaches.
April 20 is the deadline for most bills to pass out of the house of origin.
Bills that aren’t acted on will be declared dead unless they have an exemption.
Exemptions are normally granted for bills that have a budget impact although leadership can exempt other measures.
The Assembly concluded it’s business just before 1 p.m. Friday and adjourned until Monday.
The Senate, however, had already gone through one agenda and was half way through the second with agenda 3 already posted.
There were only two committee meetings in the morning and none in the afternoon.
In addition, the only committees scheduled to meet Monday and Tuesday are the money committees.
Monday a joint session of the Senate Finance and Assembly Ways and Means committees will review the Governor’s Office of Economic Development and related budgets.
Tuesday, one subcommittee will review the proposed budgets of the Department of Business and Industry while another goes over the budgets of the Division of Public and Behavioral Health.
