Boo!

It looks unlikely that a measure aimed at changing the date of next year’s legislative session to earlier in the year will pass.

A bill (SB 1356), filed in the Senate by Senator Anitere Flores remains in the Judiciary Committee, which has no more scheduled meetings. Tuesday is the last day Senate committees can hold regular meetings this year. No companion measure to Flores’ bill was ever filed in the House, either.

The bill called for starting the session in mid-January in even numbered years and ending it in mid-March.
