ADJOURNMENT: The session is over. Adjournment came late Friday night (July 1). This short session was one of the shortest (68 days) in recent memory; since 2000 the average session has lasted 77 days. The final days were marked by serious in-fighting between House and Senate Republicans that became public. A budget has been adopted, a minor change was made to the law based on HB2, but some of the most significant actions of this session were the things it left undone.
