All of the numbers I have posted about the pace of bills are correct. Any discrepancy is due to a different base period. Chairman McCall’s determination that the House is 94 bills behind the pace of 2007 was based upon the completion of Monday’s calendar, on the 105th day. The legislative library’s comparison is based on the 101st day. McCall: “IF, the Calendars committee endorses the schedule I will lay out today for Tuesday and Wednesday, by the 107th day we will have taken up 310 bills with 155 being by D authors and 155 being by R authors which will put us at 68% of where we were the same time the previous session. With Thursday and Friday and a full big calendar on Saturday we should be well on our way to a catch up.”
