The Senate released its January through July session calendar for 2020 Thursday, with 10 sessions days and another 10 if-needed dates spread from January through June.

The first session date is scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 22, though an if-needed date is set for Wednesday, Jan. 15. The final session on the calendar is set for Wednesday, June 3, but with if-needed sessions set for Wednesday, June 10 and Wednesday, June 24.

Breaks are scheduled for late February through the March primary, and for two weeks in April.

The Senate stuck with the recent practice of setting sessions calendars for half the year, whereas House Speaker Larry Householder (R-Glenford) recently published a schedule for all of 2020. (See The Hannah Report, 11/22/19.)
