CRC panel moves Session dates proposal through


The Legislative Committee of the Constitutional Revision Commission approved a proposal Wednesday to fix Legislative Session dates going forward.

Sessions would start in January in even-numbered years. They would start in March in odd-numbered years.

Rep. Jeannette Nunez, House Speaker Pro Tempore, noted that the proposal would give “consistency” going forward and would accord with current practice.

“This is the cleanest way to do it,” Nunez said.

The proposal cleared the committee quickly, and full CRC approval is likely to follow.

Amendments must be approved by 60 percent of voters on the 2018 ballot.
