General Assembly conducts special session
The governor called a special session on Monday, March 16 so that the House and Senate could approve the appropriations funding and ratify the declaration of a statewide public health emergency. This declaration gives the Governor broad powers that include freeing up resources, mandating quarantine and vaccination and asking healthcare facilities to provide services to fight the virus. The State of Emergency will last until April 13, unless renewed by the Governor.
