Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis has announced that the Senate hopes to deal with all the bills on its 3rd Reading Calendar today, as well as suspend rules and take up additional ones, but it's not an attempt to finish the legislative session by tomorrow or Saturday. “It's our intention to adjourn tomorrow at noon,” Davis told the Senate. “It is our current hope that a sine die motion will be made the first to middle part of next week. I'll just let you know that that's what we are planning to do.”
Two senators, Sens. Jim Hammond and Dean Mortimer, have excused absences for the day, so measures they're sponsoring won't be taken up.
