Red brick and white trimmed State House with a gold dome against a blue sky.


Welcome to GOAL's 2023 - 2024 legislation tracking page.

  • If you see an HD or SD in the bill number that means it has not yet been assigned a permanent number and a committee assignment.
  • The list may change from time to time as other legislation, pro or con, hits our radar. If you find legislation we should be made aware of that is not on the list, please let us know. The more eyes the better.
  • If you see a bill with "Needs Further Review" it is legislation that we are taking a deeper look into. It could be the actual intent of the bill, finessing the language, etc.
  • Legislation will normally not move until after the committee hearing process. That process can take several months if not more.
  • Clicking on the "Title" links will bring you to the bill page. There you can read the language, track its movement, see the list of cosponsors, etc.
