The General Assembly will convene its 2014 legislative session on Tuesday, one day later than originally planned.

Leaders announced that the House and Senate will meet at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, despite ongoing travel warnings across a state largely blanketed with snow.

Senate committees originally scheduled for earlier that day are postponed and will take place after the Senate adjourns Tuesday or in the coming days. The schedule will be posted at http://iga.in.gov/.

Lawmakers who are not able to make it to Indianapolis will be excused from the session, said House Republican spokeswoman Tory Flynn.

The session is scheduled to last through mid-March. In that time, lawmakers are expected to consider business tax cuts, a state-funded preschool and state school curriculum standards.
