***THIS WEEK***

The Legislature intends to adjourn this week. The Budget Conference Committee agreed yesterday on the Fiscal Year 2020 Budget appropriations and policy. They will review the final version today and it will then go to both the House and the Senate for approval. Once that is done the Legislature will adjourn for the year.

The Senate came back on Tuesday to work on clearing their calendar and the full House returns today Wednesday as they move towards adjournment.

Committees of Conference on all other bills are working out any differences in their legislation, but will need to finish today or tomorrow so that the final bills can be approved in the House and Senate before the session ends.

The Revenue bill (H.521), the Minimum Wage bill, (S.23) and the Paid Family and Medical Leave (H.107) bills are yet to be finalized. (Both the House and the Senate have made significant changes to each other’s’ legislation)

A final legislative report on the budget and policy legislation passed this session will be posted at a later date.
