1st Day Overview

The legislative sessions can be watched either on line, or on NET 2.  A lot of ceremony took place today, as the Chief Justice was ushered in twice–first to swear in the new/newly re-elected legislators, and then, after elections had been held, to swear in the Permanent officers of the legislature and the Speaker.  Sen. Mike Flood was re-elected as Speaker.

Committee Chairs were elected–didn’t catch all of them, so will post a link when the lists are posted later. Then a few other formalities were completed before adjourning for the day.

After tomorrow, committee assignments should be formalized, and then the nuts and bolts of the Legislature will begin in earnest.
