Here’s What We’re Following (House)

posted in: Other News 0

Each year, thousands of bills are introduced in the House and the Senate.  It’s typical for the same bill to be introduced in both houses, in which case they get two different bill numbers, one for each.  Bills then proceed through the House and Senate, and may be amended, sometimes quite substantially.

We are following  194 House bills out of  1397
We are following  151 Senate bills out of  1423
  345   2820

It sometimes takes us a while to catch up to the Legislature, so please be patient!

More information on each bill can be found on the State Legislature’s Website or in our Legislative Tax Bill Service (login required).  We will prepare detailed information in the Legislative Tax Bill Service when a bill is scheduled for hearing in a House or Senate committee.
