NASHVILLE (AP) – House Republicans are hoping to wrap up this year's legislative session as early as next week.

House Clerk Joe McCord tells members of the lower chamber that the "most optimistic" timetable could see the state's annual spending plan come up for a vote on Thursday. He also asked lawmakers to bring extra clothes in case they need to work through the weekend.

House Democratic Caucus Chairman Mike Turner of Nashville said he considers that timetable "unrealistic," given a series of major bills still awaiting consideration.

Turner added that Democrats have a major party event in Jackson scheduled for next Saturday, so they won't want to go into session that day.
