All Eyes on Appropriations Suspense File

The Assembly and Senate Appropriations Committees are in high gear placing most measures on the Suspense File. The “Suspense File” is comprised of bills that have a significant fiscal impact on the state budget, and if a measure is held on this file after the Appropriations Committees meet on May 16, the bill is effectively dead for the year. Measures that are released from this file will be eligible for consideration by the full Senate or Assembly.
