With just four weeks left in the 2021 session, Week 12 will see floor action pick up and a critical deadline arrive Friday with fiscal committee cutoff.

During morning sessions of floor action this week, it’s expected that the 2021-23 Transportation, Operating and Capital Budgets will all be debated and passed off the Senate floor. Following floor action, the Transportation and Ways & Means Committees will meet in the afternoon to work ahead of Friday’s cutoff.
