Reconvened Session took place earlier this week, where the General Assembly comes back to vote on the Governor’s Amendments to any legislation that passed during the 2020 general assembly session. You received our report last week on all amendments that the Governor made to legislation that impacts the retail industry. One of the main issues was that of Minimum Wage. Legislation passed in the 2020 Session to increase the Minimum Wage starting January 1, 2021, however, the Governor amended that legislation to delay the enactment until May 1, 2021. The General Assembly narrowly approved the Governor’s amendment during Reconvened Session, therefore the increase will now go into effect as of May 1, 2021.
