There will be two “interim committee weeks” in October, the week of October 9th and the week of October 23rd. Interim Committee weeks are held in advance of the 60-day regular session beginning on January 9th, 2018.
The October Interim Committee weeks will begin the legislative work of hearing bills, adding amendments and if reported favorably, moving the bill to the next committee of reference. During Interim Committee Weeks, the Legislature may perform all legislative activities except to have floor votes on final passage of a bill, which can only be done during the 60-day regular session. There have been over 200 bills filed for the 2018 session and there will be many more coming out in the month of October. [Read more…] about What to expect in October for the 2018 Legislative Session
