Session Reaches Final Week But More to Come
The legislature’s 2015 regular session has reached its final week. However, due to continuing negotiations over the budget, the legislature is heading toward either an extension of the session or a separate special session. Either way, the legislature will spend additional time in Tallahassee. However, the decision whether to extend the session or convene in a special session affects bills on issues that have been heard throughout this year’s session. If the legislative session is extended, all of these issues remain in play. However, if the regular session ends and the legislature convenes in a special session, only the topics identified in the call of the special session can be addressed.
