House of Delegates

Friday in the House of Delegates


Friday, January 11, 2019

3rd Day of the Legislative Session


House to convene at 11 a.m. On the agenda:

*** No bills on the calendar yet.***


**Per House Rule 70, the active daily calendar for House floor sessions is referred to as the “Special Calendar.” The “House Calendar” will contain bills and resolutions that have been reported to the floor but moved off the Special Calendar by the Rules Committee. (The “House Calendar” is often referred to as the “inactive calendar,” while the “Special Calendar” can be referred to as the “active calendar,” for clarity’s sake.) All bills coming out of committee will automatically be placed on the Special Calendar; they can only be moved off that calendar by the Rules Committee. This calendar arrangement used to occur beginning with the 31st day of the session, however House Rule 70 was amended in the House Rules this year to allow the Special Calendar to commence at the start of session.
