In the short session, policy bill deadlines come quickly. Last Thursday, Feb. 22 was the last day for work sessions to be scheduled in policy committees on bills that started on the opposite chamber. This Tuesday, February 27, is the last day for policy committees to move measures that originated in the opposite chamber out of committee. The deadline does not apply to Ways & Means, Revenue, Rules and other joint committees.
This means we will have another round of bills "die" and not become law this session. Check out our latest Bill
for more information.
We expect to see a few bills move out of their policy committees in the next few days - and we expect many bills that have already moved out of committees make their way to the floor of the House or Senate.
