Eye On Boise

Longer session led to fewer new laws…

This year’s legislative session , at 117 days, was the second-longest in state history, but resulted in the enactment of only 338 bills - the lowest number in the past 10 years. The highest number of bills enacted into law in the past 10 years was 459 in 2006, a session that ran 93 days. By some measures, this year’s numbers point to a lack of productivity; for a take on that, see an analysis here at the “Interstices” blog.
