Both chambers have suspended the Regular Legislative Session until March 31st. They will reconvene on March 31st at 11:00 am. There were a number of House & Senate Committee meetings scheduled to meet this week, which were cancelled due to the suspension. There was a great deal of pressure from the healthcare community to suspend the Session until April 15th in order to curtail the spread of the virus. It is possible that the Session’s suspension may be extended beyond March 31st.
