What were the odds of any (S889, S 1720 and S1645) passing. Totally disregarding merits, there is a 3% chance of any bill becoming law.
Some states have similar problems. In an article "Albany Handshake":
This surfeit of hopeless legislation clogs the
system: New York State lawmakers during
2008 proposed a record 18,000
bills—7,000 more than the U.S. Congress
and more than any other state
legislature. Only 9 percent passed. The
laziness, the corruption, the shameless
posturing, the unchecked power of the
leadership—that’s the deal in Albany;
that’s the handshake.
This is not to say, nothing can be done but, the chances of new legislation are pretty slim.
