This week, the legislature completed days 26 through 29 of the 40 day session. Thursday was crossover day, or Day 28 of the session. Crossover day is the last day for legislation to pass the chamber in which it was introduced and transfer to the other chamber for consideration. Senate bills must pass the Senate and House bills must pass the House. Any bill that does not receive a vote in its initial chamber by Day 28 cannot move on in the legislative process until the next legislative session.
