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.
Companion Bill — Passed House
This activity took place on a related bill, H.R. 2601 (109th), possibly in lieu of similar activity on S. 600 (109th).
This is a Senate bill in the United States Congress (indicated by the “S.” in “S. 600”). 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.
