Article: Law New

After a bill is considered in committee, the staff writes a committee report. This important document describes the purpose and scope of the bill and why it should be recommended for approval. A complete committee report includes a section-by-section analysis and sets forth exactly what is being changed. It also must contain the text of laws being repealed, if any. This web-friendly presentation makes it easy to view committee reports. (See How Our Laws Are Made).
