2022 Legislative Session

The second half of the 2021-2022 legislative session starts this Tuesday, January 11.  Virtual committee meetings will be held on Tuesdays and and Wednesdays this month. The House and Senate will meet in person at Legislative Hall on Thursdays during January.


(Please see recap of the press release from the Speaker and Pro Tempore: House Speaker Pete Schwartzkopf and Senate President Pro Tempore David Sokola announced Friday that House and Senate committees will meet virtually via Zoom in January, continuing the committee procedures undertaken last year. Members of the public will be able to attend all virtual committee meetings and deliver comments on pending legislation. Links to register for each meeting will be posted on the General Assembly’s website. Scheduling information, agendas and other pertinent details also will be posted on the Committee Meetings pages for each chamber.

“While I miss the normal activity of Legislative Hall, ensuring the health and safety of legislators, staff and the public is a top priority,” said Speaker Schwartzkopf. )

Both the House and Senate will meet in person at Legislative Hall on Thursdays to consider legislative agendas during January. On session days, a limited number of seats in the gallery of each chamber will be available to members of the public on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors to Legislative Hall will open one hour before voting is scheduled to begin on those days. Members of the public and legislators will be required to wear a mask while in Legislative Hall. Members of the public needing special accommodations should contact Scott Goss at 744-4180.

Legislative proceedings will continue to be broadcast online via the General Assembly website, as it was last year.
