Capitol Report: Several Bills Taken Up By House

Dozens of bills were taken up by the House during the past two weeks, as members sought to complete legislative action by April 10, the deadline for House bills to “cross over” to the Senate and for Senate bills to get to the House. Any bill that fails to get 3rd reading by the deadline has little chance of success, as it will need a two-thirds vote just to be considered in the Senate, and vice versa.
