Friday, Jan. 31, is the deadline for lawmakers to move bills introduced in 2013 out of their house of origin. That means that Senate bills penned in 2013 that have not moved to the Assembly are dead, as are Assembly 2013 year bills that haven't make it to the Senate. The deadline is one of many governing the movement of bills. Other deadlines specify when bills must go to the governor for his signature.
A key deadline each year is June 15, the date lawmakers are required to send their final budget bill to the governor, who has until June 30 to make his cuts and sign the final measure into law.
