Happy Friday TACRAO!


As the Legislature continues to move quickly on the bills that are in
motion, this week saw another several committee meetings and chamber votes,
which meant a lot of updates to the spreadsheet. The attached file is
current as of 1:30PM CST today. 


To help better keep track of exactly how far along each bill is, we've added
a new field this week: Bill Stage. The Legislature's website offers a
tracker for stages 1 - Filed through 7 - Bill Becomes Law. For our purposes
we've add a Stage 0 for bills that have bene filed and referred (the minimum
at this point) but have not been scheduled to be heard by their committee.
Stage 1 we've redefined to mean a bill that has been at least scheduled for
its first public hearing, but hasn't yet passed Committee.  With those
changes, our key values (included in the Excel) are as follow:





Filed, Not Yet Scheduled for First Hearing


Scheduled for Committee Hearing in First Chamber


Out of House/Senate Committee


Voted on by House/Senate


Out of Committee in Second Chamber


Voted on by Second Chamber


Governor Action


Bill Becomes Law


We've moved all 179 bills still at Stage 0 into a separate tab from those
that are in motion at some level. If/when any of those start to move, we'll
place them over on the 'main' tab. 


Here are some quick highlights from the sheet this week:

.         The current breakdown of the 115 'in motion' bills classified in
Stages 1-7 stands as follows:

o   Stages 5-7:          N/A

o   Stage 4:                3 (HB 33, HB 1522, and SB 788)

o   Stage 3:                37

o   Stage 2:                23

o   Stage 1:                52

.         All bills in the HCR and HJR categories are still at Stage 0

.         SB 513 has been placed back on the intent calendar after stalling

.         Three bills, HB 332, SB 1699 and SB 1889, are currently stalled
