Have there been changes to how State business and legislative sessions are conducted as a result of COVID-19? Will the State fiscal year be extended?
The current fiscal year deadline will be extended to September 30. The Senate, General Assembly, and Governor's Office will work together to enact a supplemental appropriations bill to carry government operations from July 1 until September 30, and then work to enact a final fiscal package to cover from September 30 to June 30, 2021.
Previously, A-3852/S-2296 allowed conduct of State business and legislative sessions at locations other than Trenton during periods of emergency or other exigency and allows conduct of legislative business using electronic means.
