The committee deadlines that will dictate the schedule for the 2013 legislative session have been announced.
(Published Jan 18, 2013)
A January 18 memorandum issued by House Speaker Paul Thissen and Senate Majority Leader Tom Bakk indicates the House and Senate leadership have agreed on committee deadlines for the 2013 Legislative Session. They are as follows:
1st deadline: March 15
2nd deadline: March 22
3rd deadline: April 19
Joint Rules require the Legislature to establish deadlines for each regular session. The first deadline is for committees to act favorably on bills in the house of origin. The second deadline is for committees to act favorably on bills, or companions of bills, that met the first deadline in the other house. The third deadline is for the House Committee on Ways and Means and the Senate Committee on Finance to act favorably on major appropriation and finance bills.
