Adult Education Legislative & Budget Update
With the Legislature reconvening for its final push to the end of the 2023 legislative session, things are heating up in the Legislature with the fate of almost two thousand bills yet to be decided. Notably, the Legislature reconvened from their summer recess on August 14th and will work feverishly for the next month leading up to the end of session on September 14th to take action on the remaining bills pending in both houses. At this stage, many bills are on hold in the powerful Appropriations Committees in both houses, pending review of their fiscal impacts and any potential to mitigate those costs to advance them to the Governor’s desk for consideration. The Appropriations Committees are expected to take up their Suspense Files, where the bills are on hold for fiscal review, at the end of this month. Those bills that are voted off the Suspense File and to the Senate and Assembly Floors will then have to receive approval from the full body in both houses in order to advance to the Governor’s desk for his consideration and action by October 14th.
