Our View of the Legislature: Voting

The General Assembly is now in its final week. The legislature is scheduled to end its session a week from today, March 1, 2021.  Committees must conclude their work early this week in order for any remaining bills to make their way through the rest of the process.  Significant bills expanding voting protections for people with disabilities are nearing final days of work.
