Hello, 2013! I extend my heartfelt New Year greetings and wishes for a prosperous and peaceful year. I hope everyone had a good holiday. A new year also marks a new season in your state capital.
On Tuesday, Jan. 8, the Senate convened for the 2013 General Assembly Session, a session that will last 30 days. The first week is traditionally an “organizational” week, in which the respective caucuses choose their leaders and committee assignments are disbursed to members.
