Ah, gotcha. Thanks for the clarification. The last comment prior to MP's was from March of 2015, and hadn't moved from the hopper, so I assumed that it was a dead bill.The General Assembly runs on a two-year session (there may be a more official/better word). So a bill filed in the first year of the session is still valid in the second year.
Actually it is in the homeland security committee.Ah, gotcha. Thanks for the clarification. The last comment prior to MP's was from March of 2015, and hadn't moved from the hopper, so I assumed that it was a dead bill.
I believe everything in the Current Bills section is a current bill or already passed. I archived all old bills to the archive bills section at the bottom of the forum. If I missed any let me know.So I assume that this IS not a current bill? This thread/bill is from 2015, but it is in the CURRENT BILLS section.
Ah...even more good information. Thanks for the further clarification.Actually it is in the homeland security committee.
It goes, Hopper - first read - second read - assigned to committee. This process is nearly automatic.
If the committee it is assigned to decides not to do anything with the bill or holds 15 hearings, the bill page will still say the same thing.
Only when the committee passes the bill will the bill page be updated.
To know what is going on with a bill, you have to check the committee meeting calendar where they list the bills they will discuss/hear/vote on.
