Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Legislative continuance. Places limitations on the right granted to attorney members, officers, and employees of the General Assembly to claim a continuance in court proceedings. The bill provides that the court need not grant a continuance during the period beginning one day before and after the meeting date of any reconvened or veto session, or of any commission, council, committee, or subcommittee that the officer, member, or employee is scheduled to attend, unless the request is in writing and filed with the court at least three days ahead. The party requesting the continuance must strive, when practicable, to notify all other parties to the proceeding of the request. This bill is identical to HB 733 (Sears).
