The Governor’s deadline for taking action on bills has passed. If you’re looking for a statistical wrap up of the 2018 Regular Session, we’ve got you covered. Here’s a breakdown:
There were 2,260 bills introduced this year. 229 were passed by the Legislature. The Governor signed 212 of those bills into law, allowed 8 to become law without his signature, and vetoed 8. The remaining bill, SB 2922 HD1, is a proposed Constitutional Amendment (ConAm). The Governor does not take action on ConAms; they are put on the General Election Ballot and voted on by the people.
