For 25 years, the state Duma passed more than 7 thousand laws, said the Chairman of the state Duma Vyacheslav Volodin.

«In the state Duma introduced a huge number of bills, for 25 years, deputies made more than 7 thousand laws. But not everyone has time to consider. At the first meeting on October 5, 2016 the seventh convocation of the state Duma met with a lot of baggage from 2020 bills left over from our predecessors. Some of these bills were 20 years old. We have set the task of reviewing them in accordance with the procedures of the Duma», — said Volodin in interview to the edition «the Russian newspaper».

The politician explained that «reset» all the initiatives of the parliamentarians just do not have the law, since the Constitution protected the rights of the legislator.

«However, the regulation gives us the opportunity to consider draft laws on a shortened procedure, and we used it for part of them used. In the end, with the exception of the 50 bills we all this array shoveled. Most of the laws went on the deviation, but 14 percent of this amount we support,» he concluded.
