The New Jersey Legislature presents a lot of bills that become a number of laws. Consisting of two Houses, the New Jersey Legislature meets yearly to hammer out the ideas that eventually become law. Although the legislature meets yearly, each Legislature is constituted for a term of two years allowing business from the first year to be continued into the second (even numbered years represent the beginning of the two year term). The New Jersey Senate consists of 40 members with 80 members in the General Assembly. The office of Legislative Services provides both houses with non-partisan legal, fiscal, research, and administrative services.
