"Section 2-1-180. The regular annual session of the General Assembly shall adjourn sine die each year not later than 5:00 p.m. on the first second Thursday in June May. In any year that the House of Representatives fails to give third reading to the annual General Appropriations Bill by March thirty-first fifteenth, the date of sine die adjournment is extended by one statewide day for each statewide day after March thirty-first fifteenth that the House of Representatives fails to give the bill third reading. The session may also be extended by concurrent resolution adopted by a two-thirds vote of both the Senate and House of Representatives. During the time between 5:00 p.m. on the first second Thursday in June May and the extended sine die adjournment date, as set forth herein, no legislation or other business may be considered except the General Appropriations Bill and any matters approved for consideration by a concurrent resolution adopted by two-thirds vote in both houses."
