- Lawmakers gathered at the Capitol for Organization Session, officially choosing a new House Speaker, Senate President and minority leaders for each chamber.
- At the Board of Education meeting, Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran said distance learning options would remain after the winter break, but didn’t say if funding would remain the same.
