Week in Review: May 6-10

It was another long week with hours of debate on supplemental budget bills that have now, mostly, been passed off the House Floor, meaning conference committee season has fully arrived.

Tax conferees plan to meet Saturday morning, otherwise no official meetings are scheduled this weekend. That doesn’t mean plenty won’t be going on behind the scenes.

A reminder that while the 2024 regular legislative session will constitutionally end Monday, May 20, official business must conclude by the stroke of midnight on Sunday evening. It’s possible members may hold a Monday floor session for ceremonial purposes such as retirement speeches. 

The weather looks beautiful over the next few days, so enjoy it if you are able because the final sprint to the end of session begins Monday and next weekend will likely not be as calm.
