2019 Session Information

The 2019 Legislative Regular Session will convene on Monday, April 8, 2019, and final adjournment must take place no later than 6:00 p.m. on Thursday June 6, 2019. 

The session is shorter this year due to the fact that it is a fiscal session. Legislators are limited to bills that affect fiscal matters such as taxes. However, there is an exception to this limitation during a fiscal session. Legislators may file not more than five bills which cover all general matters. In addition, a member may introduce not more than five additional bills after session begins.

All acts passed will become law on August 1, 2019 unless the text of the bill provides otherwise.

As always, the Alliance will keep its members up to date on all legislation impacting the EMS community.
