The legislature has adjourned. Here is the resolution. They will reconvene on July 10, July 29, September 9, October 9, and November 19, and December 11. The resolution notes what can be taken up in each session. Note the broader scope of work approved for November 19, including the budget.

From Gary Robertson’s AP article::

“The Senate initially sent the House a standalone spending measure for those private-school programs, but House members wanted the private-school money accompanied by public school spending increases within a budget bill, House Speaker Tim Moore said. Now it looks like tens of thousands of families will miss out, at least in the short term.

‘It would be a real shame and a missed opportunity if we don’t get those Opportunity Scholarship dollars out,’ Moore told reporters earlier Thursday. ‘At the same time, we need to make sure we’re doing all that we can for our public schools.’

“Moore said later Thursday he was hopeful that the money could still be approved in time for the school year.”
