Legislature Extends Joint Recess Due to COVID-19

Late last Friday, Senate President pro Tempore Toni Atkins and Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon announced the Legislature has extended its joint recess to May 4, 2020, amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Recall, the Legislature recessed last month in an unprecedented move to mitigate the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis; the Legislature was previously scheduled to return to Sacramento on April 13.
