Committee Markup Test Drive

Tomorrow at 9:30, the Cities Committee, chaired by Sen. Squadron (who also sits on the Temporary Committee for Rules and Administration Reform) will experiment with a bill markup and amendment process based on rules suggested by the Brennan Center. The meeting should be broadcast online – we’ll be watching, and we’ll bring you the full report tomorrow.

This should be an opportunity to see substantive committee work on a bill, and we hope that others will follow the Cities committee's lead in working toward a committee structure that allows legislators to take an active role in shaping and improving the legislation under their consideration.
