12 March 2010


A quick look at the numbers, heading into the eve of the Day 60 finale to the 2010 regular session:

  • 73 bills have been passed to Gov. Joe Manchin;
  • 2 bills so far have required House-Senate conference committees to reconcile dueling versions (one of those could be up for a House vote today);
  • Another 22 bills are slated for final Senate votes Saturday (the Senate has been suspending the three-day rule to allow for immediate votes on passage. It did so eight times on Thursday);
  • An additional 30 bills are idling on the House's inactive calendar. All but three of those would otherwise be up for a vote on passage.
Nearly 2,080 bills were introduced this session.
