Steven James, Clerk of the Massachusetts House reminds us that he wrote an article about the informal session process, "Government by Consensus: Restrictions on Formal Business in the Massachusetts Legislature Inspire Innovative Ways to Govern" for the Fall 2007 issue of Journal of the American Society of Legislative Clerks and Secretaries: http://www.ncsl.org/Portals/1/documents/aslcs/Jrn_Fall_2007.pdf.

Steve's article contains an interesting discussion of the British parliamentary term, "prorogation." To my knowledge, Massachusetts is the only state that uses this term left over from colonial times.
