Scott had 18 of 21 bills that he introduced this session pass through the Senate. Krekorian, who introduced 24 bills this session, had 16 bills move on. Five of Krekorian's remaining bills are two-year bills, which will continue to be debated into the next legislative session. Portantino, now halfway through his first session in the Assembly, had passed eight of 12 bills he introduced as of Thursday afternoon.
Republicans, the minority party, however, saw more of their bills either killed or held in committee. State Sen. Bob Margett, whose district includes La Crescenta, had 10 of 20 bills introduced this session get passed. Assemblyman Anthony Adams, whose district includes La Crescenta, had six of 13 bills introduced this session pass. And Assemblyman Cameron Smyth, whose district includes a portion of Glendale, introduced 13 one-year bills, five of which were passed.
The legislative halfway point is important because it marks the last opportunity for bills to get out of their house of origin. Bills that don't get approval by today will be held.
