In the 2022 Legislative General Assembly Session, most bills passed along party lines. However, whenever each “opposing side” could work together, there were several bills that were passed unanimously from both chambers. When the governor refused to sign those bills, in spite of members of the General Assembly overriding the veto (there were enough votes), partisan politics prevailed. Moreover, after the Session concluded, there were several bills that were left in conference. Many citizens and organizations waited “with bated breath” for more information regarding the FY23 Budget. Many wondered if we would have a budget before July 1, 2022 but, thankfully, a budget was passed.
