The historic passage rate represents the success rate of all bills from that jurisdiction’s previous session advancing past that stage in the legislative process. We incorporated this information, so clients have context to understand if the bill is more/less likely to pass. For example, a bill has 50% chance to pass the first chamber in Utah is lower than the norm but a bill that has a 50% chance to pass the first chamber in Minnesota is higher than the norm.
