FAQ on Carry-Over Legislation:
Q: Why are bills from a previous session included in a legislative summary for the current year? For example, 2012 bills show up in 2013 legislative summaries.
A: It’s because of “carry over” provisions that some states have adopted in their legislative rules and procedures. Twenty-seven states and D.C. allow carry-over bills to remain active for their biennial sessions.
States with 2013-2014 biennial sessions are Alaska, California, Delaware, D.C., Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, Washington, and Wisconsin.
New Jersey and Virginia are on a 2014-2015 biennial schedule.
Puerto Rico has a three year legislative session, from 2013 to 2016.
