2023 State Legislative Sessions Calendar

Introducing our interactive state legislative sessions calendar.  Every state legislature operates differently. Forty-six states hold annual legislative sessions, while Montana, Nevada, North Dakota, and Texas only meet during odd-numbered years. Additionally, some legislative sessions are year-round, while others only operate for several months. Use this interactive map to keep tabs on legislative sessions in all 50 states.

Fun Fact
: In 2022, state legislatures introduced over 167,000 bills and passed more than 27,000 pieces of legislation. Interested in tracking state legislation? Check out Quorum State.

Click on any state to see when a session starts and adjourns.
