Lawmakers covered the clock and worked late into the night on Feb. 25 to deal with bills still in their house of origin – House of Representatives bills had to move out of the House, while Senate bills had to move from the Senate. Any not dealt with died. Covering the clock is a traditional method of ignoring the midnight deadline on Crossover Day. The clock was covered in the House but representatives adjourned with two minutes to spare.
