More than 800 bills were proposed by Knesset members on Wednesday in what parliamentary officials said was a new record for one day. Wednesday was the final day before the Knesset leaves for a month-long recess and MKs wanted to get in their bills so they could be legislated as soon as the Knesset returns on May 4. Hadash MK Dov Khenin turned in the most with more than 100 while Meretz leader Haim Oron turned in 50. None of the bills drafted by Khenin or Oron are expected to pass, because they are in the opposition.
