It’s nearing that time of year again when we will be working into the evening. I have finalized the schedule for “late nights.” Please reserve the following dates for the Legislature to work during the evening hours:

Tuesday, March 13;
Tuesday, March 20
Wednesday, March 21;
Thursday, March 22;
Monday, March 26;
Tuesday, March 27;
Wednesday, March 28;
Tuesday, April 3;
Wednesday, April 4;
Thursday, April 5;
Monday, April 9; and
Tuesday, April 10.

The adjournment time for a scheduled “late night” will be around 9:00 p.m. or later (potentially as late as 11:59 p.m.). The specific adjournment time each evening will be dependent upon the Body’s progress on that day’s agenda.

For each scheduled late night, I will be recessing the Body for approximately 30 to 40 minutes around 5:30 p.m. to allow members to eat dinner without the interruption of a Call of the House.

I may cancel a “reserved late night,” and in that case, I will provide members of the Legislature with as much notice as possible of such a cancellation. Please note, however, that a canceled “late night” may still mean an adjournment time as late as 7:00 p.m. with no evening meal break.
