Online PR News – 01-September-2011 – – ARLINGTON, Virginia –Stateside Associates has released the 2012 Bill Introduction Deadlines FactPad insert. The reference document features the deadlines for state legislators to introduce bills during the 2012 legislative sessions.

Each state has unique deadlines for bills to be introduced into the legislative process. Knowing these dates for all fifty states is a crucial component of any state government relations strategy. Stateside Associates has recognized this need and makes it easy to track bill introduction deadlines from a publicly accessible FactPad insert.

Some states, like Florida and Maine, have deadlines in early January that leave little room on the 2012 legislative calendar. That small window means that much of the legislative negotiation actually occurs BEFORE the legislatures convene.

Other states, like Arizona, have deadlines that require bills be introduced before a given number of legislative days (days in which the legislature meets) have passed (in this case the 29th legislative day for both the Arizona House and Senate). Still other states, such as Delaware, New York or Wisconsin, do not have any official bill introduction deadlines.

The Stateside Associates FactPad is designed to put a wide variety of reference information at the fingertips of professionals responsible for state and local government affairs, public sector sales and regulatory compliance. FactPads are distributed free to clients and friends of the firm and are available for purchase by the general public. The 2012 Bill Introduction Deadlines, and many other FactPad inserts, are always available free of charge at www.stateside.com/factpad.
