- The 2018 legislative session hit a notable mark on March 22nd when the first policy deadline arrived. Policy deadlines are dates set by legislative leaders used to winnow the universe of bills to take action upon. To be considered viable, bills will have to have cleared the policy committees in one body by March 22. The second deadline arrives on March 29, when a bill’s companion must clear the policy committee hurdles in the other body. The markers have made for very busy days and nights at the Capitol, as legislators race to move their bills through the committee process.
