State Laws You Need To Be Watching
Consider this: By the time most statehouses wrapped proceedings at the end of July, state lawmakers had approved nearly 29,122 of the approximately 171,608 bills introduced during the 2015-16 biennial session.
In the same period Congress had introduced 10,916 bills and resolutions and passed only 199 of them.
State legislatures are now almost 17 times more productive than Congress, and this year may be the busiest on record for the nation’s 2,000 state senators and 5,400 state representatives.
Yes, you’ve been hearing it for years, but when it comes to the states, the sheer speed and volume of bills and regulations that get introduced and passed is mind-blowing.
If you’re in government relations for an association, corporation or nonprofit, you need to be staying on top of this stuff.
