Day 58 of the 60-day Legislative Session came to an end at approximately 11pm this evening, starting the veto recess that will last until the General Assembly reconvenes on April 13 & 14 to consider any gubernatorial vetoes--of which there may be several--and wrap up unfinished business.

House Bill 1 - The state's executive branch budget
House Bill 7 - Public Assistance Reform
House Bill 274 - Transportation Improvement Districts
House Bill 315 - Broadband Infrastructure
House Bill 499 - Employee Childcare Assistance Partnership
House Bill 607 - Pari-mutuel wagering
House Bill 745 - Product Development Initiative
The General Assembly will return on April 13 at 11am ET (Senate) and 12pm ET (House) for the 59th day of session.
