This chart only includes members that served a full term from January of 2006 to December of 2009. Therefore, council members, like Vincent Ignizio, who joined in 2007, were not included. Nor were former members like Rep. Michael McMahon, who left the council mid-term.

All this data was gathered from the council's legislative database. The council sorts who is and who is not the first prime sponsor of the bill. A first prime sponsor is whoever is listed first on the legislation. This list does not give credit to members who co-sponsored legislation.
