NC Bill drafting requests still 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 14%, probably a reflection of more study committees meeting and recommending substantive legislation, and 2) Requests to the Bill Drafting Division are down over 40%, a reflection of a drop off in special appropriations bill requests.  The 31% drop is almost identical to that reported last week.

    2008 2010   CHANGE
RESEARCH DIVISION   256 293 +14.45%
DRAFTING DIVISION   1196 711 -40.55%
GRAND TOTAL   1452 1004 -30.85%
