Bills in Committee: May 20–May 24

May 19, 2013
Policy committees do not meet this week. 
Instead, all the action is in fiscal committees, which face long agendas as they must hear and pass all bills out of the house of origin by May 31. Thursday the Senate Appropriations Committee will take up the “Suspense File,” all bills on which action was deferred because their impact on the General Fund is $50,000 or more. The Assembly will also do the same, likely on Wednesday.   
A full listing of all Senate and Assembly hearings is available online. Hearing times are subject to change. The League will report any actions of significance.   As of this writing, a listing of bills to be heard by the Assembly Appropriations Committee has not yet been posted. An updated version of this article will be produced to include Assembly bills when the information becomes available.
Bill language and any available position letters can be found on the League’s website by typing the bill number into the search box.
