LEGISLATURE ALERT: The Assembly Organization Committee has placed the state budget into an “Extraordinary Session” scheduled to begin 11 a.m. Tuesday June 14th.
Extraordinary Sessions are very rare and seldom used for the Budget. In an Extraordinary Session action can not be postponed, points of order are decided within one hour, the daily calendar is effective immediately upon posting and does not have to be distributed, motion to advance legislation and message it to the other house only required a majority vote of those present, the session can be expanded to include any other legislation, including new legislation (financial martial law?) and “No notice of hearing before a committee shall be required other than posting on the legislative bulletin board, and no bulletin of committee hearing shall be published.”
In other words the Republicans can do anything they want to and do it very quickly with the only notice being a piece of paper on the bulletin board outside the chamber. Next they will decide that for the good of the public they will close the sessions.
this is how they get the union busting language pushed though
