Attached to today’s agenda, you will see the second consent calendar which will be scheduled on Monday. Additionally, Monday’s agenda will include select file debate of the first consent calendar and senator and committee priority bills which are ready for their second round of debate. Once select file is completed, we will continue with the priority bills on general file listed on today’s agenda.
A reminder that next Thursday, February 17, upon adjournment, is the deadline for a senator to submit a letter to me requesting a speaker priority bill designation. Senators may request more than one bill for consideration but will need to submit a separate letter for each request. Only letters hand-delivered to my office (not emailed) prior to adjournment will be considered. To provide me with additional time to review requests, I ask that you do not wait until the deadline and instead submit your speaker priority bill request letters early next week.
Additionally, the next deadline for consent calendar request submissions also will be next Thursday, February 17, by noon. My consent calendar process is a rolling submission with any bill that has been requested for consent calendar but not selected for the first or second consent calendar will remain on my list for bills to review for the subsequent consent calendars. However, a few of those bills I have determined do not fit my criteria for consent calendar and in the near future I will be letting those senators know their bill is no longer being considered.
Please keep in mind we are only one week away from the deadline to designate senator and committee priority bills. At this time, only 28 of the total 81 senator and committee priority bills have been designated. That leaves almost two-thirds of the priority bills yet to be designated.
