Congress on pace to be least productive since 1947
- 61 the number of bills that have become law to date in 2012
- 3,914 the number of bills that have been introduced by lawmakers
More from usatoday: These statistics make the 112th Congress, covering 2011-12, the least productive two-year gathering on Capitol Hill since the end of World War II. Not even the 80th Congress, which President Truman called the “do-nothing Congress” in 1948, passed as few laws as the current one, records show. (More: http://usat.ly/ObJQKP)
