The 2022 midterm elections have concluded and the 2023 legislative session is right around the corner. While the session officially begins on March 7, there will be a series of seven interim committee weeks leading up the official start.
During these interim weeks, committees will discuss, debate and pass legislation. It is every bit as important to stay tuned into the Legislature during these committee weeks as it is during the regular session.
