Some high-profile bills are dead or on life support. Proposals to ban, delay or limit the natural gas extraction process known as fracking were killed in committee. Most bills to repeal or cut back stormwater pollution-control fees — which Republicans call a "rain tax" — are dead. A bill that would decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana passed the Senate and is technically alive in a House committee. But that bill, like a legalization measure, is unlikely to reach the House floor.
