Annotation: The article is devoted to the problems of a very significant number of federal laws adopted by the State Duma of Russia, especially over the past five years, as well as the weak understanding of legislative acts by officials and ordinary citizens related to these issues, which as a result entails practical non-enforcement of laws. Considering lawmaking as a process necessary for the normal functioning of the state, the author analyses, first of all, quantitative indicators for the annual adoption of federal laws, and he also provides examples from individual regulatory legal acts. As a result of the analysis, as well as taking into account more than twenty years of experience in public authorities, the author identified the causes of excessive lawmaking, conditions conducive to the emergence of a large number of laws. A table showing the number of adopted federal laws for the period from 1994 to 2020 is attached to the article. Based on the results of consideration of the above issues, the author formulated conclusions and suggestions.
