Eye On Olympia

2006 Legislative session, by the numbers…

It was a short session this year, but it didn’t act like one.

Lawmakers proposed, debated, then killed or passed 2,640 bills this session, including a broad array of big-issues items: dozens of sex offender bills, three budgets, a massive Columbia River water storage program, etc.

As for a bill’s chances of passing, they’re about 1 in 6. To be specific, 16 percent of House bills passed, 14.7 percent of Senate bills passed.
