To: *Legislative All Assembly
Subject: Security tomorrow

The West and South wings are being secured for tomorrow's Session. Also the hallway from 4th West to 4th North will remain secure. Only Legislators, staff, and credentialed media will have access to these areas. Legislators or staff can escort constituents they have meetings with to their offices (up to 8 at a time.) Officers will be available to assist with escorting member to and from caucus or elsewhere if needed.

The Assembly galleries will be open to the public. We will be asking people to empty their pockets and will have metal screening set up to enter. People will be admitted 10 at a time. Since this is an added step we plan to open the galleries an hour before Session rather thank 15 minutes. Visitors will be expected to observe the rules of the galleries. The rules are posted outside the galleries (the following is not allowed: eating, drinking, smoking, loud talking, photography, phone use, laptop use, video camera use, newspapers, wearing of hats, signs, posters, placards, leaning over railings, sitting in aisles or on the floor, standing in aisles, outbursts-clapping, cheering, etc. and bags or briefcases are not permitted.)

Thank you and feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
