2019 Legislative Session
The 2019 legislative session was widely reported on as being the most contentious and challenging in over a decade. An usually large class of first-year legislators (30 of the 100) as well as a new executive branch led to predictable growing pains and adjustments. In addition, Democratic leadership in both chambers expressed a desire to advance an ambitious legislative agenda – which was met with a variety of attempts to slow or stall bills on the part of Republican legislators.
