  • Primary elections are next month and it appears that there will be some good leadership coming into the Legislature and will also have a new Senate President.

  • Federal money is coming into the state for assistance with the pandemic and the Governor came out with some allotments a couple of weeks ago.

  • The Governor and the Chief Justice have been working well together so this could help the courts out in the next legislative session when it comes to budgets and other issues.

  • The question was raised about the possibility of furloughs and if there has been any further indication of if or when it will happen. Colin advised that there has obviously been a delay in tax filings but that by the end of July there should be a better idea on the status of finances and budgets. Cash flow will not being coming into the state like normal and a lot of taxes have been deferred to April of 2020. There is a possibility for furloughs but it will greatly depend on what happens the remainder of the year.
