Dear Friends and Neighbors,

This Wednesday the General Assembly officially began the 2021 regular legislative session that will run until June 9th. The “long session” is used to establish a state budget and introduce bills of a general nature.

Most of this year’s session will be conducted remotely, as you may have already heard. This means that committee hearings, floor votes, and even office hours will be mostly conducted through Zoom, with lawmakers observing social distancing. While the Capitol Complex will remain closed to the public, there are many new opportunities to participate in the process and make sure your voice is heard.
