Massachusetts Legislature Extends Session
The Massachusetts General Court passed Senate Bill 2873 declaring a state of emergency within the Legislature and extending the legislative session past the traditional last day of July 31.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the General Court extended the session to respond to and mitigate the spread of the coronavirus, to protect the health, security, safety, and economic well-being and convenience of the people of the Commonwealth.
The bill suspends Joint Rule 12A and allows the second annual session of the 191st General Court to continue until the end of the calendar year.
