Along for the Ride
Lawmakers enjoyed a four-day weekend in their districts to observe President’s Day on February 21st . The tempo of session was relatively slow this week for this point in the session: two days in chamber and one day of committee meetings. It’s analogous to riding to the top of a roller coaster; the session has been steady and disciplined during the ascent. But all that stops next week: the roller coaster has reached the apex and we can clearly see the high-speed loops, rolls, and turns that await us. For the next five weeks, the legislature has only one weekday off. The pace will be grueling as the General Assembly races downhill towards Crossover Day on March 15 and sine die on April 4.
