Executive Agency Legislation Process

The process and resources for developing legislation can be found in the Executive Agency Legislation Process Manual. This manual will assist you in the mechanics of drafting legislation and the process undertaken to review each proposal to ensure conformity with the Governor's priorities and initiatives. All executive branch agencies must submit legislation through this process.

The Executive Agency Legislation System (EALS) may be accessed at There is also an Executive Agency Legislative System User Manual that details how to use the online application.

Please adhere to the following deadlines:

  • July 13 - Last day to submit legislative ideas.
  • August 17 - Last day to submit proposed/draft legislation.

If you have questions about the system, please contact Gideon Tolman at or 854-3082. All other questions should be directed to your special assistant in the Governor’s Office or your DFM analyst.
