Special Legislative Session

Governor Bevin called a special legislative session July 19 – 24 in which House Bill 1 (HB 1) was approved by the Senate 27-11. Because the bill had an Emergency clause, it took effect immediately upon the Governor’s signature. Unless another Special Session is called between now and the end of the year, the General Assembly will not convene again until the start of the 2020 Regular Session on Tuesday, January 7, 2020.
