Legislature now in 24-hour rule mode

After the House vote on the Senate budget today, and when the Senate appoints its members to the conference committee on Monday, the “24-hour rule” will be in effect.

Hearings on remaining bills relating to crime, the Permanent Fund dividend, and constitutional amendments, can be scheduled with just 24 hours notice, as the House and Senate rush to complete their business.

While this makes if harder to follow the legislative process, you can always track your legislation of interest by using the Bill Tracking Management Facility and set notifications that can be sent to your email when bills are moving.

The House floor session will gavel in at 11 am Monday and the Senate will gavel in at 2 pm. The budget conference committee is expected to begin its negotiations on Tuesday.
