Legislators have suspended the 2020 Legislative Session due to COVID-19 concerns.  Legislators have gone home until April 1 unless the Lt. Governor and Speaker of the House agree that legislators should reconvene on a different date.  Before leaving Jackson, legislators passed HB 1647 which authorizes local governments and school districts to grant employees administrative leave with pay during emergency closures related to COVID-19.  Click here to review our latest bill tracking spreadsheet which reflects the latest action on bills under consideration.
