House Committees to Meet and Review Legislation

Next week, the newly organized House standing committees will meet and begin their thorough review of legislation. There may be House floor votes for bills on second consideration on Wednesday, Jan. 28.

House committees are the foundation of legislative activity, as all bills introduced by lawmakers must first be referred to the appropriate committee. The committee will vet the bill and issue before it is sent to the full House for consideration. Committees conduct public hearings and/or meetings to discuss issues and specific legislation in order to develop the best policies for the Commonwealth.

Members have begun circulating memos seeking co-sponsors for proposed legislation. Continuing the commitment to open government, all co-sponsorship memos are being posted publicly and can be viewed under the “session” tab at

Any bill introduced in the 2013-14 legislation session that was not enacted into law is considered dead. Members who want those proposals considered must reintroduce them in the new session – and some of these are being considered next week by committees.

Live web streams of House session and the majority of committee meetings are available at  Important information and events may also be viewed by visiting 

The Weekly Schedule

Identified by bill number, the sponsors and summaries for bills scheduled to be considered in committee or on the House floor are posted below.  More information regarding these bills can be found at by clicking on the “Research Bills” tab.
