Legislative Sessions Round-Up

Posted: July 10, 2015

By June, most state legislatures adjourned for the year and bills that have not been discussed or passed are either on hold until 2016, or have died and will need to be reintroduced next session.

This year is no different with only nine states remaining in session and three more in special or overtime sessions – mostly to wrap up budget talks. one more state, Maine, will be looking to adjourn by the end of this month.

Four other states are a little more unique. Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, all have year-round sessions that will continue through the end of 2016.
