    Looks like the Bill Drafting Division will be very busy for the next two weeks. Then it will be leisure as usual! I will be thinking about all of you drafters–even those I haven’t met.

    Can you elaborate on the Bill Drafting deadline? Is this only for bill-drafting requests to the Bill Drafting and/or Research Divisions? Does this include bills drafted by the AG’s Office (if any) and does the Bill Typing Office have a different deadline that a bill starting from scratch?

    Correction:

    does the Bill Typing Office have a different deadline that than a bill starting from scratch?

    Hi Gregflynn,
    The bill request and filing deadlines are for all bills, regardless of whethe they come through the Bill Drafting Division, Research Division, or the AG’s office (we get a handful from there)
