Special Session? 'That is a foregone conclusion'
At the conclusion of some very interesting comments, Sen. Thomas K. Norment, R-Williamsburg, the floor leader, told members to start thinking about when they'd like to come back to Richmond.
"My other forecast is that we will be going into a special session. I would expect the call for the special session will be jointly issued by the legislative branch," Norment said. "If it is not, then I am certain his excellency [Gov. Tim Kaine] will do it. That is a foregone conclusion, that we will have a special session."
Norment said the House had expressed a preference for a special session after the reconvened session on April 19, but that hasn't been confirmed by members of the House of Delegates yet.
The Senate will reconvene Saturday at 11 a.m.
