Bills which failed to reach the floor and remained in Appropriations after this deadline have been marked 2-Year in CapitolTrack. Here’s a comparison of how many bills failed this deadline in 2019, 2021 and 2023:      More bills seem to fail this deadline each session creating a fairly steep
  • Analyze Support and Opposition      We’ve added a new tool to the CapitolTrack repertoire; a grid of supporting and opposing organizations for each measure. Take a look at this new grid under CT Analyze, Analyze Support & Opposition:      The grid defaults to grouping by measure and shows all organizations in support or in opposition to each bill. Each of the column headers can be used to group the support and opposed grid.

There’s a new icon which reads ‘Generate a Member / Committee Roll Call Card’
