The House is staring down a midnight deadline tonight to pass all HBs/HJRs on second reading.* The House took up all the bills on their Monday calendar as of yesterday evening leaving a total of Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday’s Daily House Calendars to tackle for the 14 hours remaining until their calendar deadline.

Missing the midnight deadline means those house bills not taken up may be considered in large part dead; however, the language of the bill can still hitch a ride on another bill as an amendment. As deadlines loom, HillCo will continue to watch the progress of legislation and provide key updates.

*this does not include local/consent bills which have a deadline for next week

Senate Calendar

Today the Senate takes up their Notice of Intent calendar. The Senate Intent Calendar is a list of all legislation where notice has been filed to bring a bill up for floor debate out of its regular order, so any bill on the calendar may be taken up. Before the 130th calendar day of the regular session, the rules may not be suspended to consider a bill or resolution out of order until the second day the measure has been listed on the Intent Calendar.


Out of 6,923 filed House and Senate bills for the 87th Regular Session, at total of 130* HBs and SBs have been passed by both chambers and are on their way to the Governor’s desk – some have already been signed. Last session at the same time, a total of 94 HBs and SBs had passed both chambers and were on their way to the Governor’s desk.

*TLO Reports

The House and Senate will reconvene today at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. respectively.
