Week eight of the 66th Legislative Session and “transmittal” has come and gone; that means we have completed 45 days and have 45 left to go! This particular transmittal requires that all “general bills” to be heard in their first House and be transmitted to the other House (Senate bills transmit to the House and House bills transmit to the Senate). The bills that don’t transmit to the other house can be considered to have died in the process. The next transmittal is for revenue-estimating joint resolutions on March 23rd, but the next BIG transmittal is April 1st, which is the transmittal of appropriation bills, revenue bills, and bills proposing referenda.
