Legislative Process

Overview

Legislative Process

2021 is the first year of the 2021-2022 legislative session. Since it is the first year of the 2-year session, lawmakers will have a fresh opportunity to introduce legislation that was not passed last session. All bills must be introduced by February 19, 2021 in order to begin their journey through the two houses. Lawmakers then have until September 10 to submit their proposals to the governor for his signature, or they will be pushed to 2022. The Legislature will officially reconvene on January 11, 2021 for the new year. For more information about the legislative process please see the links below.
