HUNDREDS OF PIECES OF LEGISLATION FILED AT THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY, AND THERE’S MORE TO COME

Maybe it’s not scientific, but Shad Plank counts more than 900 House bills and more than 400 Senate bills already posted on the General Assembly’s Legislative Information System. That’s up from the 430-odd House and 330-odd Senate bills filed by this point last year (when bill filing started in the summer, rather than after Election Day, as is the case for the 2020 session). In 2018, which like this year will be a long 60-day session with bill filing starting only after Election Day, there were about 630 House Bills and 360 Senate bills filed by this point.
