Rep. Paul Evans discusses the upcoming special session and the 2021 legislative session, live on Facebook from 9 – 10 a.m.
The issues that will be considered during the Special Session are:
- Consideration to temporarily change the law to allow bars and restaurants to sell mixed drinks and cocktails to – go, including allowing third-party services to deliver the sealed containers to those who are legally allowed to purchase alcohol. There will be a limit of (2) two drinks and requires substantive food purchases per alcohol limit. It also seeks to cap the third party (Postmates, UberEats) fees for 10% for deliveries and 5% for pickups.
- Limited-Liability protections for civil damages related to COVID-19 infection if the school is operating according to COVID-19 emergency rules.
- Extending the statewide eviction moratorium through June 30th, 2020, as well as creating a landlord-based compensation fund with an initial allocation of $150 million general fund appropriation, with potential for future federal and additional state allocations.
- In addition to these three policies for consideration, the legislature will allocate $600 million to the Emergency Board to support ongoing COVID and wildfire relief efforts.
