HB 1157, SA # 2, requires the General Assembly to vote by joint resolution to uphold or overturn an advisory opinion issued by the Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability (COGFA) regarding the closure of state institutions. While providing no deadline for action by the General Assembly, the bill prohibits the Governor from taking any action to implement a recommendation to close a state institution unless and until the General Assembly upholds the closure recommendation.
