If Anyone's Keeping Count ...

At the halfway point of this Legislative session, the House has passed 30 bills so far.

The Senate has passed 18 bills, 19 if you include HB1 The Feed bill, which so far is the only one to pass both chambers.

Not including "dummy" bills (blank bills introduced before the deadline so legislators can introduce bills late in the session), there were 1,185 bills introduced in the session, 606 in the House and 579 in the Senate. There is no "Bill of the Beast" this year because neither chamber got up to 666 bills.

My story on the halfway point, published in Sunday's New Mexican, is HERE.
