n.— «Same as is the opposite of one-house. It means that the same bill has been introduced in both houses, meaning that in those somewhat rare cases where it is actually passed in both houses, and signed by the governor, it can become law. Sometimes, in Albany parlance, it becomes one word, as in “Is there a sameas?”» —“In Language of Albany, Webster Is Notwithstood” by Michael Cooper New York Times June 23, 2005.
