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.
