Will budget bill make tomorrow's legislative session?
The Legislature is scheduled to go into session tomorrow, but it's not clear if the fiscal year 2020 Budget Bill will be on the agenda.
According to a spokesman for Speaker Tina Barnes, the agenda will be adopted on the floor. He cites a section of the standing rules that states "In the absence of a Session Agenda adopted by the Committee on Rules, I Liheslaturan Guåhan, by eight votes, may adopt a session Agenda."
What may be discussed tomorrow is a time-sensitive Bill by Senator Therese Terlaje which waives the 12 child capacity for group child care homes. This comes ahead of a new 7,000 square foot federally-funded facility slated to be completed soon. It will be used by child protective services for emergency shelter or temporary foster care.
