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 bill was passed in a vote in the Senate. It goes to the House next.
This is a Senate bill in the United States Congress (indicated by the “S.” in “S. 2711”). 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.
Legislative action may be ocurring on one of these bills in lieu of or in parallel to action on this bill.
