The bill extends the duration of a state of disaster emergency

declared by the governor from 30 to 60 days, but prohibits the governor
from renewing a state of disaster emergency declared beyond 60 days.
Instead, the bill authorizes the general assembly, upon the written request
of the governor and by adopting a joint resolution, to extend the state of
disaster emergency for up to 60 additional days. The general assembly
may continue, at the written request of the governor and by adopting a
joint resolution for each extension, to extend a state of disaster emergency
for periods of up to 60 days for as long as it deems it necessary to do so.
If the general assembly is not scheduled to convene in a regular session
when a state of disaster emergency will end as required by the bill, the
governor or a two-thirds majority of the members of each house of the
general assembly, in accordance with applicable state constitutional
provisions, may call the general assembly into an extraordinary session
to consider extending the state of disaster emergency.
