The 113th Congress escaped the designation of "least productive Congress in modern history" thanks to a particularly active lame duck session. During its session, the 113th Congress enacted 296 laws, 212 of which were "categorized ... as substantive " by the Pew Research Center, a nonpartisan "fact tank." This legislative activity, however, did not benefit animals. Of the pieces of proposed legislation discussed in this Review, none passed and, unless otherwise specified, all died in Committee.
