The state constitution limits Ihe legislature to organizational matters at the session and Schultz said he had heard no talk of Gov. Claude Kirk calling a special session while lawmakers were In the capital. "It would be doing the people of this state a disservice If we didn't go through orderly procedures," he said, particularly on anything concerning appropriations. Legislative committee assignments are to be passed out at the organizational session and committees are scheduled to have regular sessions between then and the beginning of the regular legislative session in April.
