  • General Assembly to address issues in 2015 session

    A few weeks from now, the General Assembly will return to the Capitol as it does each January to begin a new legislative session.
    Since this will take place in an odd-numbered year, it will only last for 30 working days, and the first four of those will be dedicated to electing House and Senate leaders and establishing most of the chambers’ committees for the next two years. Bills and resolutions will be considered in February and March, but the state’s budget will not be one of them, since that is completed in even-numbered years.
