Statement from Lieutenant Governor Delbert Hosemann Regarding Adjournment of the 2020 Legislative Session
“The House has passed, and the Senate is waiting on its delivery to the Senate, a resolution to suspend the Legislative Session until April 1, subject to the call of the Speaker of the House and the Lieutenant Governor. The resolution, as it stands now, will not add additional expense.
Our immediate goal is to follow the President and the State Health Officer’s recommendations in regard to COVID-19, and make sure everyone who is working and visiting our State Capitol stays healthy and safe.
I want to speak clearly as to the future. We will continue to plant and harvest the food which feeds us and the world. We will build the cars which transport us. We will build ships which defend us. Our schools will continue to educate our children. We will again join our friends, families, and our neighbors at our sporting events, restaurants, and churches.
In short, our lives will return to normal.
These challenges are temporary, but our resolve is permanent.”
