Extraordinary Session of the 92nd General Assembly Convenes
March 26, 2020 1:00pm
Location: Arkansas State Capitol & Jack Stephens Center @UALR
On 03/25/20, Governor Asa Hutchinson issued the official call to legislators for an Extraordinary Session of the 92nd General Assembly to convene at 1 p.m. on Thursday, March 26, 2020. The official proclamation can be found here: https://t.e2ma.net/click/pt3jph/lio90hg/lq60s3d .
“I have called this special session of the General Assembly to ask legislators to cover the projected loss in state revenue,” Governor Hutchinson said. “I made this decision after days of intense study and discussion with legislators and with leadership at the Department of Finance and Administration.”
“Many Arkansans have lost their job or had their pay cut as COVID-19 has swept through Arkansas,” the Governor said. “Extending the deadline for individuals to file and pay state income taxes will cost the state millions of dollars, but it is a cost the state must shoulder in order to do the right thing for taxpayers. I will ask all agencies to cut expenses where possible without cutting essential services. We will further tighten the state’s spending in order to lighten the load for Arkansans.”
