On Friday the Legislature finally recessed for a short period of time before a planned return August 25. The Legislature passed an interim, three-month budget as well as additional COVID-19 relief legislation before recessing. However, it also passed a number of non-COVID-19 as well as some politically-charged bills. Other bills remain pending further and possible final action when the Legislature returns later this year. More details about the recently passed and still pending bills will be provided in the coming days, but if you are interested in more information about any particular bill or issue, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org in the meantime.
