Representative Tom Bock of Andover, Baltimore, Chester, and North Springfield
We are now well into the 2nd half of the 2019 legislative session. Since January over 500 bills have been introduced. The 2 week “crossover” period when bills need to pass out of committee and onto the Floor in order to be considered for passage in the remaining weeks of the session, has come and gone. Of the 500 bills introduced this session, most never made it out of committee. But this is the first year of a 2-year biennium, so bills that do not make crossover can still be considered next year.
