ALBANY—Attention state senators: if you have a pile of bills to introduce, you had better do it today.
According to spokesman Travis Proulx, the “unlimited bill introduction period” ends today at 5 p.m. Afterward, each senator will be limited to introducing 10 more bills for the remainder of session.
Senate staffers know today as “dump day.”
This provision has been in the Senate rules since the early 1990s, and takes place every fourth Sunday in April.
This is unlikely to cause many major hiccups, but may be a problem for legislators who have not been proactive in dealing with local matters.
