Yes, I basically predicted this weekend that this would be the last week of the regular legislative session, but that has turned out to be a little optimistic.
The adjusted prediction is based on a few factors –
1. The Rs screwed up the budget that they railroaded through last week, so they have to fix it this week.
2. A conversation this past weekend with a member, who predicted 2 – 3 more weeks. The end of next week will be two legislative weeks after that conversation.
3. Some Senate committees are scheduled to meet Monday afternoon to consider a number of executive nominations. It would be difficult to do that if the legislature has adjourned. 🙂
As the committee meeting will end late in the afternoon, it will probably be too late in the day for the full Senate to approve the appointments on Monday. Therefore, my new and improved sine die prediction is:
Wednesday, April 13 at 2 p.m.
Note: tomorrow, Wednesday, April 6 at 9 a.m., House Rules will meet in HHR3 to consider/rubberstamp a long agenda.
