Senate Appropriations Committee to limit consideration of non-fiscal amendments

Senate Appropriations Committee to limit consideration of non-fiscal amendments

In its first meeting of the 2017-2018 legislative term, the Senate Appropriations Committee adopted an operating policy that would limit the ability of the committee to consider amendments outside the fiscal implications of legislation.

 

In the past, the committee has been the Senate-jurisdiction-of-last-resort for some wishing to change legislation as standing committees often try to move the process along without consideration of amendments.
