Legislative Update Archives
House Office of Research

The Legislative Update, produced by the House Office of Research, covers legislative action on the floors of the House and Senate and in House committees. Activity in Senate committees is not covered. Bills introduced in the Senate are summarized only after they have passed the Senate and been introduced in the House. Please keep in mind that the bill summaries do not necessarily reflect the current status of a bill. The meaning and significance of a bill can change greatly over time, due to amendments and other circumstances.
