The 2019 legislative session ends on June 3rd at midnight, so hearings will be scheduled on an as-needed basis.  The two committees with the most work will be Assembly Ways and Means and Senate Finance.  These two committees decide how much money will be allocated to each budget as well as to bills that have fiscal notes. 

Floor sessions could be long this week as remaining bills receive their final votes.
