Legislative Leaders Postpone Legislative Business Until March 30

Today, Democratic and Republican legislative leaders announced that legislative business including committee meetings and public hearings will be postponed until March 30. The Legislative Office Building, State Capitol, and the Old State House will be closed during that time.

Legislative leaders will meet again next week to determine if further action needs to be taken.

In a joint statement, Speaker of the House Joe Aresimowicz, Senate President Martin M. Looney, House Majority Leader Matt Ritter, Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff, House Minority Leader Themis Klarides, and Senate Minority Leader Len Fasano said:

“In order to continue to take all necessary steps to protect the health and safety of the public, the General Assembly will postpone all committee meetings, public hearings, and other legislative business until March 30. Over the next two weeks we will continue to discuss amongst each other and determine if any additional action needs to be taken.”
