  • Committees - To see a list of committees and select one, go to the legislature home page, click "Committees" from the navigation menu across the top, and click the committee of interest. Each committee has an upcoming agenda and calendar listing and a membership roll on their page. Bills are typically assigned to 2-3 committees based on their subject and whether or not the bill makes an appropriatiion. Bills are either considered in committee or tabled (more or less ignored, effectively killing the bill). If they are considered, they receive either a "Do Pass" or "Do Not Pass" recommendation and go on to another committee or to the chamber floor for a vote.
  • Calendars - schedule of committees, and both House and Senate floors.
