The measure, which passed the Senate last year, would have the Legislature meeting for 90 days during the first year of a two-year session and 120 days the next.
Stevens says it is clear to him, after the reaction in the House, that the House isn't interested in the plan. Some House members voiced frustration last year that the Senate was willing to work past the 90-day limit set out in law under a voter initiative. The state constitution allows lawmakers to stay for 121 days.
Stevens says he has not asked for any hearings.
He says he expects this to be one of the bills that dies.
