Legislative Process

Overview

Legislative Process

2019 is the first year of the 2019-2020 legislative session. After the election in 2018, many legislators will be returning to the capitol along with some new legislators who were voted in. Since it is the first year of the 2-year session, lawmakers will have the opportunity to get their bills passed this year, and next. Any bills that fail passage this year will have the opportunity to carry over into 2020. Legislators will return to the Capitol on January 7, and session will adjourn September 13. For more information about the legislative process please see the links below, or email Katie Almand, CALBO’s Government Affairs Manager.
