Both Chambers are working hard and making progress.  It is anticipated that both Chambers may work into the evening to complete their work to avoid an overtime session.  The legislative leaders have determined that if they are unable to get their schedule of work completed, both Chambers will remain in the Capital City to continue working.  To recess and return to their districts would require further testing and preparation for session.

Will continue to keep you updated on progress.  Be well.
