much of this increase is due to the dramatic gro(th in

"n additional factor in this trend might be the relatively small maAorities in the state .enate=
Ehile the total number of bills passing this chamber has barely changed in the past t(o
decades, it is possible that the need for near9unanimity (ithin the MaAority Coalition has made it
more difficult to pass significant legislation= This may be true because one or t(o dissenters can
be enough to 'eep a bill from seeing a vote= 4t seems feasible that this dissent is more li'ely to
surface in a &epublican9controlled chamber over bills that are supported by "ssembly
1emocrats than over one9house bills sponsored by their co9partisans, (hich could lead to
relatively constant numbers of one9house bills, but fe(er agreements bet(een both chambers=
This potentiality is indicated by the fact that the average number of bills passing the .enate per
year over the course of the current t(o9year session G 1,4-4 G is higher than the average over
the past ten t(o9year sessions, despite the e2istence of a relatively small number of t(o9house
bills=
