10:20--Sen. Wilder has yielded the chair to Lt. Governor Ramsey in the Senate.

10:25--The Senate is in recess as is the House.

10:35--The House is back in session.

11:00--Minority Leader Mumpower reminded the House that it is "now tomorrow in East Tennessee" to which the Speaker replied "thank you for helping get us there." Mumpower has moved the sine die adjournment. The Senate is back in session.

11:20--Senate moved to concur with House sine die resolution. The Senate is appointing its committee to tell the House that the Senate has completed its business.
