The special session quest is continuing!

Despite what you might have heard, the quest for a special legislative session is continuing.

Here’s the basis for this attempt (words in bold type indicate this blog’s emphasis):

(B)  Extraordinary Session.  The legislature may be convened at other times by the governor and shall be convened by the presiding officers of both houses upon written petition of a majority of the elected members of each house.  The form of the petition shall be provided by law.  At least seven calendar days prior to convening the legislature in extraordinary session, the governor or the presiding officers, as the case may be, shall issue a proclamation stating the objects of the extraordinary session, the date on which it shall convene, and the number of days for which it is convened.  The power to legislate shall be limited, under penalty of nullity, to the objects specifically enumerated in the proclamation.  The session shall be limited to the number of days stated therein, which shall not exceed thirty calendar days.

The attempt to reach one-third of each house of the legislature by Friday October 27 resulted in the following legislative signers:
