GovTrack Insider, our Kickstarter-backed work to summarize bills in Congress, has resumed. Here’s what we’ve been up to:
An "original bill" is one which is drafted and approved by a committee before it is formally introduced in the House or Senate.
Jul 6, 1988
100th Congress, 1987–1988
This bill was introduced on March 17, 1988, in a previous session of Congress, but was not enacted.
Senator from California
Reported by Committee
A committee has issued a report to the full chamber recommending that the bill be considered further. Only about 1 in 4 bills are reported out of committee.
This is the first step in the legislative process.
This is a Senate bill in the United States Congress (indicated by the “S.” in “S. 2611”). A bill must be passed by both the House and Senate in identical form and then be signed by the President to become law.
The committee chair determines whether a bill will move past the committee stage.
There have been no roll call votes related to this bill.
