Check out the calendar of meetings for today and tomorrow. The Assembly Judiciary Committee scheduled 15 – yes 15 – bills to be heard this morning. Senate Health and Human Services has 11 bills on the agenda for this afternoon.
Odds are that committees will meet very late into the night tomorrow as crunch time arrives. Any bill that does not make it through committee before midnight tomorrow dies without a hearing. There are exceptions granted to certain budget bills. However, as per legislative leadership’s new strategy, those bills will go directly to the floor to be heard by a Committee of the Whole anyway.
