Keeping tabs on when Congress, 50 different state legislatures and U.S. territories are actively considering new bills is hard. Some legislative sessions run all year, but other states are active only for a couple of months. Other state legislatures operate on a two-year cycle and can carry over legislative proposals from one year to the next. In 2023, we project those lawmakers will consider over 160,500 new bills and approximately 12,500 carry-over bills.
2023 Legislative Calendar can help you monitor when legislatures are active as well as important legislative dates and deadlines. Our state legislature calendar provides information on legislative sessions in each state, district, and territory, including regular legislative session dates as well as special session dates.
