On Monday, March 1, the 2021 Special Session of the General Assembly (GA) formally adjourned “sine die,” a Latin term meaning it has adjourned “without a day” to reconvene.
The bills that concern people with brain injury are now nearly complete. Please know that, after a bill is approved by both houses of the legislature, it goes to the Governor for review. The Governor can sign the bill, can veto the bill or can amend the bill. If the bill is sent to the Governor with seven days or more left in the session, he must act on it within seven days.
The legislature now has less than two weeks left in the session. However, they have already taken action on several bills before the legislature that will impact the rights of people with traumatic brain injury.
The 2021 session of the General Assembly is just two weeks old, but already the legislature is acting on some bills affecting persons with brain injuries.
