This is a calendar showing legislative Session, the period of time in which a County Assembly is convened for purpose of legislature usually being one of two or more smaller divisions of the entire time between two elections. In each County Assembly the procedures for opening, ending, and in between sessions differs slightly. A session may last for the full term of the legislature or the term may consist of a number of sessions. These may be of fixed duration, such as a year, or may be used as a parliamentary procedural device. A session of the legislature is brought to an end by an official act of prorogation. In either event, the effect of prorogation is generally the clearing of all outstanding matters before the legislature.
