Today is the Triple Referral Filing Deadline. This is the deadline for bills with three referrals to be reported out of the first committee to which they are referred. This deadline gives the second committee time to work on a bill before the First Lateral Deadline on Feb 19th.
By the First Lateral Deadline, all bills must move to their final committee. If you’re in support of a bill that is still alive and has been referred to more than one committee, now is a good time to contact the chair of the committee your bill is in and ask them to schedule your bill for a public hearing. February 15th (Presidents’ Day) is a holiday so that is one less day committees have to hear or schedule a bill for a hearing. Have questions about the calendar? Please feel free to give us a call at (808) 587-0478 or email us at [email protected]
