Over the course of this month, state legislators will introduce around two thousand bills. All new legislation for 2020 must be introduced by February 21. CSDA will review every bill introduced, sending some of them to one of our six Expert Feedback Teams for help with analysis, and bringing dozens before the CSDA Legislative Committee meeting on March 6 for a support or oppose position.
