And Then There Was...One

On Sunday we sent out an email laying out how we thought the final two days of the legislative session would likely play out with the main issues being overriding vetoes and the transportation budget. The General Assembly took no action on either of those topics today. 

The legislature did move several issues along. They gave final passage to several bills, including: HB 369 (reducing contractual statute of limitations) and SB 200 (juvenile justice reform). They also appointed conference committees for others like HB 125 (lab reports). Besides posturing over the transportation budgets, the legislature, and in particular the House, found itself dealing with the outcome of the Legislative Ethics Commission decision in the John Arnold case from last week. 

The General Assembly will return at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, April 15 for the final day of the 2014 Session.
