General Assembly Action Deadlines Approaching

According to the General Assembly’s legislative calendar, the deadlines for favorable action on legislation are approaching.

March 20 (70th Day) — Committee Reporting Courtesy Date

Each Chamber’s committees to report their own bills by this date
26 76th Day — Opposite Chamber Bill Crossover Date

Each Chamber to send to other Chamber those bills it intends to pass favorably

Opposite Chamber bills received after this date subject to referral to Rules Committees (Senate Rule 32(c), House Courtesy Date)

Anticipate lengthy floor sessions in both chambers on the week or so ahead, as both the Senate and House face this practical (though soft) deadline for positive action.
