Cities Encouraged to Send Sign and Veto LettersThe 2013-14 biennial legislative session wrapped up after 3:00 a.m. Saturday morning. End of session activities and fights were mild when compared to prior years.

In fact, the session dragged into Saturday morning only because two bills were not eligible to be heard until that day.
