Governors: Powerful agenda-setters
from CQ StateTracker
Those of us who follow state legislation watch the sponsor, the committee chairs, the speaker and the president. We follow the media, check the legislative calendar and look for vote updates. But just behind the drapes is the governor — and even though governors aren't allowed to introduce or sponsor a bill, they can be one of the biggest players during a legislative session.
