Legislative Process

Overview

Legislative Process

2022 is the second year of the 2021-2022 legislative session. Since it is the second year of the 2-year session, lawmakers will have a second opportunity to pass and improve legislation that was not able to move through the legislative process last year. All bills must be introduced by February 18, 2022, in order to begin their journey through the two houses. Lawmakers then have until August 31st to submit their proposals to the governor for his signature, or they will fail. The Legislature will officially reconvene on January 3, 2022, for the final year of the 2-year session. For more information about the legislative process please see the links below.
