The 2023 General Assembly adjourned Sine Die at 12:04 pm in the Senate and 12:33pm in the House on May 4.
While a large amount of the energy this session was focused on Governor Reynolds’ policy priorities and national hot-button issues, in the end after a few weeks of tense negotiations the Republican Trifecta was able to negotiate a deal on the budget and final policy priorities to reach final adjournment. Throughout session we provided weekly written updates and kept you updated in real time in these final weeks on the happenings on bills of interest as the must do agenda items were further refined and limited. Unfortunately, not everything we hoped to get across the finish line made it, mostly due to negotiations between the two chambers and good old politics. Remember, this is the first session in the biennium so all bills introduced this session can still be reconsidered again next session. We will work with you during the interim to ensure those holdover bills are ready for the 2024 session! If you have any questions or need additional information about these items, please contact us directly.
Now that session has ended, Governor Reynolds has 30 days to review and sign the bills sent to her into law, meaning she has until Saturday, June 3. As always, we will provide you with a comprehensive End of Session Review in the coming weeks as we work through all of the amendments and bills that passed in the final days of session.
It has been our honor to represent your organization this legislative session and we hope you found our team and services to be effective, impactful, and professional. We look forward to connecting soon as we will quickly start planning for the 2024 Legislative Session. In the meantime, please let us know if you have any questions or need anything from our team.
