FRANKFORT — The state House will try to finish its work March 16 but will not change the official legislative calendar that has this year’s session ending March 22.
Senate President David Williams proposed earlier this week to cut six days from the ongoing legislative session to potentially save the state $384,000.
“As long as can get the work done, we don’t have a problem with that,” House Speaker Greg Stumbo said Wednesday after a closed-door session with House Democrats.
Asked if legislative leaders will change the official calendar that has the session ending March 22, Stumbo, D-Prestonsburg, said, “We don’t have to do that.
“You can adjourn anytime you want to. Both chambers can adjourn tomorrow if they want to.”
The legislative session costs about $64,000 a day.
