House Votes to Shorten Session to 103 Days

Today, the House voted to shorten the session to 103 days. While this pretty much assures us of closing up shop in early to mid-April, we do not yet know if our session will end in 103 days or 104 days. The Senate has passed its version of the Joint Rules (which governs things like the length of the session) and the House has passed its own version.

Now, the two versions will be resolved in Conference, with three members from the House and three members from the Senate.

After the Conference Committee reconciles the two, one version will go to both the House and the Senate for final passage.
