Any legislative session comes at a huge hidden cost to state agencies, not just the Legislature. I recently retired from a large state agency after 37 years. When the Legislature was in session, all energy and staff are focused on responding to Legislative questions, endless special interest bills most of which do not pass, dozens of hearings, meetings with interest groups, etc. Anything controversial got set aside until the session was over. Any discussion on adding an annual session needs to come with a detailed financial statement from ALL state agencies.
