This is a reprint of a memo that is being circulated around the Capitol right now:
“After thoughtful consideration of Senate member preferences, and in consultation with the House leadership on their likely schedule, the Lieutenant Governor has asked me to distribute the following schedule update:
Thursday, July 11, 9am Session (Finance and Criminal Justice bills)
Thursday, July 11, 9:15am or on adjournment/recess of Senate, HHS Committee (HB2)
Friday, July 12, 2pm Session (HB2 to be considered on second/third reading as soon as eligible for consideration)
Saturday, July 13, TBA Session (as needed to complete consideration of HB2)
The House has announced they will consider a transportation proposal on Monday, July 15. The Senate will likely recess after completion of HB2 until Monday in anticipation of further actions being necessary to complete work on the Second Called Session. Please keep schedules flexible for next week as it is difficult to have a more precise timeline until more information is available.
Please feel free to contact me or the Lieutenant Governor’s Office with any questions about the floor schedule.”
This information is reliable. Let’s just say I found it written on a piece of paper wrapped around three cigars.
