The chances of getting out early? Pretty much gone for state lawmakers.
State Republicans were hoping for an early dismissal from this year's session.
But a slew of recently-introduced bills is making that highly unlikely.
Republicans and Democrats in both houses have introduced 49 bills since April 12th and the senate president says lawmakers will stay as long as it takes to get their work done.
Adjournment of the session is scheduled for May 11th.
