About the resolution
This is the first step in the legislative process.
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.
The resolution was passed in a vote in the House. A simple resolution is not voted on in the other chamber and does not have the force of law. The vote was by voice vote so no record of individual votes was made.
Updated bill text was published as of Passed the House (Engrossed).
- Committee Assignments
The committee chair determines whether a resolution will move past the committee stage.
