The Senate and House will hold floor sessions starting at 9 a.m. and 10 a.m., respectively. Both chambers will break for caucus and are likely to hold additional sessions in the afternoon or evening.

Today is the House’s turn to focus on education bills, after the Senate passed a host of school-related measures earlier this week.

The House Capital Budget Committee planned to hold an 8 a.m. work session on the potential budget impacts of climate change.

With March 13 the deadline for most legislation to pass out of either the House or Senate, some lawmakers could be working the weekend. The House has scheduled possible floor sessions at 10 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
