2019 Legislative Session

Welcome to the final legislative update of the session. We reached Sine Die Wednesday night with the legislature adjourning for the year. It was a great privilege for our team to have represented you this session. This session was a long session, with legislators working to reconcile competing priorities in the budget and additional bills spanning a wide range of topics. After a late night finish, we saw the major gaming bill and budget pass both chambers to reach the Governor’s desk.
