2019 Senate Scene - Week 12


This week was the last week of legislative activity before First Adjournment. Late Friday afternoon, the Senate gaveled out for adjournment and will reconvene on May 1 for Veto Session. The Senate voted on numerous conference committee reports including a school finance bill sent to the Governor for her signature and then on to the Attorney General before the deadline for the court ruling. A conference committee is a small, bipartisan, and bicameral committee that works to smooth out the differences between the House and Senate’s version of a similar bill. Once the conference committee reaches a compromise, the negotiated bill is sent to both the House and Senate for a final vote before advancing to the governor’s desk. When the Senate gavels in on May 1 at 10:00 a.m., we will begin Veto Session and wrap up any legislative loose ends for the year.
