The state of play: All 140 seats in the General Assembly were up for grabs this year. Republicans previously held a 20-19 majority in the Senate and a 51-48 majority in the House. The big picture: The shift could have significant ramifications on gun control the passage of an Equal Rights Amendment and an increase in the minimum wage all bills Republicans in the legislature had blocked in recent years.
