lc draft

  • "LC" refers to "legislative concept": a draft of an idea for legislation, prepared by Legislative Counsel. Each LC draft has its own number, LC 345, for example, but if the draft is introduced as a measure, it assumes a new bill number. So in our example, LC 345, if introduced in the House, would then become HB 2000, or whatever number it is assigned.
