Welcome to the 2012 Legislative Brief, your one-stop shop for legislative news from a variety of sources throughout West Virginia, and my view of legislative happenings on the horizon. Today marks the 38th day of the 60-day Legislative session.
Legislative Action by the Numbers:
- 1264 bills introduced in the House
- 621 bills introduced in the Senate
- 7 bills have passed both chambers and have completed Legislative action
My View from the Capitol:
Monday marks the last day for bills to be introduced in both the Senate and House Chambers. Look for numerous bills to be introduced in both chambers that day.
