2014 Session Calendar


HERE you will find the recently released 2014 Regular Session legislative calendar. A few items of note:

- Due to this being the 60 day "long" session and the session not starting until January 7, 2014, there is not as much wiggle room for the Leadership to juggle days late in the session or take extra days off for bad weather. The last day of the 2014 session on this calendar is April 15, 2014, which is the last day the General Assembly can meet per the constitution. 

- The last day for new bills is March 3 in the House and March 5 in the Senate.

- Concurrence Days, used primarily for the purpose of concurring in the other Chamber's amendments to bills though other business can be conducted, are scheduled for March 28 & 31. 

- The General Assembly has set the veto recess for April 1-11, before returning for the final two legislative days on April 14 & 15.
