NC Bill Drafting requests down 31%

Total bill drafting requests received by staff for the 2010 short session of the North Carolina General Assembly are down over 31% from the same point after convening of the 2008 short session.  There are two conflicting trends — 1) Requests to the Research Division are up over 21%, probably a reflection of more study committees meeting and recommending substantive legislation, and 2) Requests to the Bill Drafting Division are down over 42%, a reflection of a drop off in special appropriations bill requests.
