New Legislature Will Sit Today
Premier Scott Moe announced the first session of the new Legislative Assembly will take place Monday, November 30th, beginning with the election of the Speaker in the morning followed by the Lieutenant Governor delivering the Throne Speech in the afternoon.
“Our government has received a new mandate from the people of Saskatchewan and I know all MLAs on both sides of the House are looking forward to getting into the Assembly and debating the important issues facing our province,” Moe said. “Of course, our immediate focus will be on managing through the ongoing pandemic – keeping Saskatchewan people safe while keeping our economy open and working toward a strong recovery.”
In keeping with the current COVID-19 regulations, more space between the members will be implemented and plexiglass shields will be installed on desks, in addition, members will wear masks in the Assembly. The number of members who will be present in the Assembly at one time is currently under consideration.
The fall sitting is expected to last two weeks. This will allow for debate and passage of the Throne Speech and introduction of several pieces of legislation, including bills required to fulfill the government’s campaign commitments.
Moe has commented that “we are grateful that the people of this great province gave our government a strong renewed mandate to keeping building a strong economy, strong communities, strong families and a strong Saskatchewan, and that’s exactly what we intend to do.
