Good Morning and Happy New Year!

Attached are a list of bills filed as of December 30, 2018 for your review.  Lawmakers began filing bills on Monday, November 12, 2018 and 863 have been filed to date.  Judith Zaffarini (Laredo) filed the first bill in the Senate and Terry Canales (Edinburg) filed the first bill in the House.

The 86th Legislature convenes at noon on Tuesday, January 8th.  The first order of business in the House will be to elect a new speaker.  The new speaker will likely be Rep. Dennis Bonnen, R-Angleton.  In the first 30 days of the regular session, the legislature may act only on emergency items, emergency appropriations, and recess appointments, unless a chamber circumvents this rule with a four-fifths vote of its membership.  In the second 30 days, committees may begin hearing bills, which means emergency items effectively have a full 60 day advantage on the floor.  This typically affects only the Senate because the House rarely takes up any bills until the expiration of 60 days.
