Bell Sounds from the 20th - February 4, 2011

With Crossover only a few days away, the pace at the General Assembly has reached a sprint as we work to complete action on all House Bills. Crossover, which falls on Tuesday, February 8 this year, is the last day that the House of Delegates can act on a House Bill. On Wednesday, all bills that have passed the House will be sent to the Senate for their consideration, and we will begin to consider all Senate Bills that have passed the Senate. If a bill hasn't passed the House by Tuesday, then that particular bill will not pass the General Assembly this year.
