Question for anyone familiar with the state legislative process

Why are identical bills introduced in both the house and senate? Does this usually mean it will pass?

[quote] Why are identical bills introduced in both the house and senate?

Because both houses need to vote on the bill to be signed into law by the governor.

[quote]Does this usually mean it will pass.

Of course not.

r1, you obviously don't understand the question. Now fuck off!

Okay.

Do you understand the question?

I apologize that I probably wasn't clear in what I was asking. Sometimes 2 identical bills are introduced in both the house and senate simultaneously. I was wanting to know if that usually meant the odds were good that it was going to pass. I did find something yesterday which did state something along the lines of speeding up the process of passing it, but I'm still unsure whether that increases the likelihood that they know they have the votes behind the scenes.

OP, you’re kind of bitchy. Why don’t you specify which state you’re speaking of? Maybe folks familiar with that state’s processes/politics would help.

Of course they’re just as likely to tell you to fuck off, so good luck.

Not in Nebraska.

It means there is a member of each chamber who supports it. It just takes one member of that chamber to introduce a bill.

Tons of crazy stuff is introduced and just dies in committe if there is no support.

Is this another "My space heater takes up a lot of light" thread?
