John Porter, Duncan’s chief of staff, said they were glad Ralston agreed to return on June 15, which he has said will give lawmakers time to be tested for COVID after Tuesday’s primary.
“We appreciate (Ralston’s) work and open dialogue through this difficult time, but we all agree June 15th is the appropriate return date and we look forward to getting back to work,” Porter said.
The General Assembly suspended session in mid-March in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.
But what the session will look like when lawmakers return is still unclear. Leaders in each chamber have been devising ways to resume session while also keeping people safe, though neither has issued official plans.
