This page contains the list of bills that have been reported out of their respective committees with a recommendation of “Do Pass.” That means that the bill is referred to the “committee of the whole,” that is, the entire Assembly or Senate, which is the next body to vote on the bill. (If that body also votes to approve the bill, then it goes to the other “committee of the whole” for consideration.)
The information for this page comes from e-mail messages with the subject line “PLT: Bill Committee Report Notification” which is among the several types of e-mail messages you receive if you have PLT account.
PLEASE NOTE THAT many of the bills in this list are ones that we have opposed. But because they are now moving on to the full chamber (assembly or senate, respectively), we have the opportunity to send our comments again to all members of that chamber; the same comments or new ones. And then do it all over again when the bill goes to a committee and then to all members in that chamber.
Please also note that these bills deserve a second look precisely because they were passed out of their committees with a “do pass,” and I am sure we some have escaped our attention earlier. To make that task easier, I inserted links to our comments, if we made any.
