On Monday, March 16, the House and Senate met and announced that the Tennessee General Assembly plans to pass a budget this week and then recess until June 1, at which time they plan to consider remaining legislation. A few bills will be considered this week by both chambers—bills deemed ‘essential’ by Leadership, pertaining to statutory obligations and/or funding of the government. This continues to be a fluid situation. We hope everyone stays healthy and we will continue to update you as we receive information.
**As noted above, the legislators will focus primarily on the budget this week, while many items on the calendar will wait until they return.
