When House Speaker David Ralston sat down with reporters last week to discuss the new legislative session, he addressed the question that’s been on the mind of every capitol denizen.
“People want to know, is it true we’re going to be in and out in a hurry?” Ralston said. “From a House perspective, that is certainly true.”
It’s true from a Senate perspective as well. The General Assembly session that kicked off Monday should adjourn sometime around the middle of March, making it one of the quickest sessions in decades.
