Arkansas General Assembly Extends Adjournment Sine Die Date
The regular session of the 93rd Arkansas General Assembly has been extended until May 3, 2021.
House Concurrent Resolution 1008 provides the purpose of the extension is to consider vetoes correcting errors or oversights, complete work on proposed constitutional amendments, and decide if there is need for additional extension.
The resolution further provides if the General Assembly takes an extended recess or recesses for reasons related to COVID-19, the designated adjournment sine die date will be subject to change.
Lobbyists who are registered to lobby the General Assembly are required to file a monthly report 10 days after the end of the month for any month the General Assembly is in session. The anticipated adjournment sine die date of May 3 creates a lobbyist activity report due June 10.
Additionally, whenever the name of a public servant appears in a lobbyist’s activity report, the lobbyist must notify the public servant seven working days prior to the filing date of the activity report. Such notification must be delivered by June 1.
