Lawmakers adjourn for 4-day weekend

February 16, 2023

Lawmakers adjourned on Thursday for a four-day weekend. With one-third of the 2023 Legislative Session in the books, much work remains. Having completed two weeks of two-a-day committee hearings, the Legislature scheduled initial floor debate on bills that had advanced from committee on Monday, February 13. Unfortunately, the legislative body ground to a screeching halt over confirmation reports (gubernatorial appointments) that typically take a few minutes each to process, by spending three full mornings of debate (approximately eight hours) on the confirmation reports.
