  • Lawmakers kick off 2011 session

    At the start of January, there are two things that can always be counted on: It will take at least two weeks to write the new year correctly on such things as checks, and the General Assembly will return to the Capitol to begin a new legislative session.

In the House, the remainder of the week was spent establishing membership of the legislative committees and their chairmen for the next two years.
