Bill Crossover Deadlines

When a bill must cross a chamber.

A "crossover" deadline is the last day for a bill to pass out of the chamber in which it was introduced and move forward for consideration in the opposite chamber. Knowing the crossover deadline for each chamber gives you an early indication of the bill’s viability, as a bill that does not cross over before deadline commonly faces high procedural hurdles to be considered in the opposite chamber. Please note that there may be exceptions to these deadlines. Calling the state directly is the best option when a particular bill is of special significance to your organization.
