Adjournment sine die! (Session pau for now!)

Mark your calendars:  Session gets underway again next year on the third Wednesday in January -- January 20th, 2016.

Mark your calendars: Session gets underway again next year on the third Wednesday in January — January 20th, 2016.

The 2015 Regular Session ended Thursday, May 7th. A total of 252 bills passed the Legislature this session! All but one (SB143, a proposed Constitutional Amendment that will appear on the 2016 ballot) have gone off to the Governor for possible enactment.

Find the growing list of 2015 Acts on the “Reports and Lists” page of the the Legislature’s website. Just scroll down to the “Governor’s Action” section, where you’ll find links for what’s pending on his desk and what’s been enacted.

As for the deadlines — PAR’s April Newsletter spells it all out, but in a nutshell:

  • The Governor has until June 29th to inform the Legislature of any bills being considered for a veto; and
  • He must veto or sign all the bills enrolled to him by July 14th, or they become law without his signature.

Take a look at the newsletter for more information about the enactment of bills, and don’t hesitate to contact PAR if you have any questions!
