House Adopts Two Resolutions; New Bills Introduced and Old Bills Carried Over

The House of Delegates met at 11 a.m. today for the second day of Regular Session.

Today was acknowledged as Monongolia County Day with a citation given to celebrate the county's accomplishments.

A citation was also presented to the family of the late Congressman Harley Orrin Staggers.

Two house resolutions relating to procedures were adopted. 

House Resolution 2 establishes the Calendars of the House. As it was adopted, there are two separate calendars, the Daily Calendar and the House Calendar. Nothing on the House Calendar shall take precedence over items on the Daily Calendar without a two-thirds vote. Nothing can be removed from the Daily Calendar without a majority vote by the Committee on Rules, and a majority vote by the Committee on Rules can add a removed item to the schedule once again. A roll call of all votes pertaining to the preparation of the House Calendar will be kept on record.

 House Resolution 4 re-establishes and realigns Standing Committees.

Among the changes made by the adoption of this resolution, House Resolution 4 merged two committees to form the Committee on Agriculture and Natural Resources. The Committee on Industry and Labor, Economic Development and Small Business was divided, becoming respectively, the Comittee on Industry and Labor, the Committee on Energy, and the Committee on Small Business, Entrepreneurship and Economic Development.

Unresolved bills from the previous session were carried over, along with several new bills introduced, bringing the count to 743 bills.
