Davis: Thursday adjournment ‘a real possibility’

Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis just announced to the Senate, "Our current target for adjournment sine die is Thursday, and we're going to work as hard in that direction as we possibly can." He said, "What we can do on our side is make sure we have our legislation cleared each day. If we do that, it makes Thursday adjournment a real possibility. There are some other moving parts that could have an impact on that, but we're working hard in that direction." The Senate cleared all the legislation on its calendar yesterday; it plans to do the same today, Davis said, and each subsequent day, which requires suspending rules to take up bills that haven't yet reached the 3rd Reading Calendar.

Given Davis' track record on such predictions, it seems likely the Legislature will adjourn Friday.
