Some Republican-controlled state legislatures also have passed a flurry of voting restriction laws, as well as bills attempting to ban the teaching of critical race theory in public schools.
By the numbers: Only a fraction of bills introduced actually become law.
For example, state lawmakers have introduced five times as many bills mentioning health care as have been enacted, according to Quorum's numbers.
More bills were introduced this year that addressed taxes and transportation than elections and voting, but the election-related bills were more likely to be enacted.
