To commemorate the 55th anniversary of statehood, the Legislature will honor and acknowledge former state House and Senate members who have served throughout the years since 1959.  In the House, over 50 former representatives are expected to attend.

As in 2010 and 2012 (second years of the biennium), the Legislature will hold a modest opening to the legislative session with a business as usual approach.  Floor proceedings will not include musical entertainment, and family members, friends and guests will not be seated on the chamber floors.  Following the session, legislators will have the discretion to host guests in their individual offices.

The public is welcomed to attend the opening floor sessions, however seating is limited. Chamber galleries will open at 9:45 a.m. on a first-come, first-served basis.
