Bill Number Assignments

The Daily Status Report lists all the bills in numerical order and indicates their current status. The Bill Information page always contains the most recent Daily Status Report. 

The report uses certain symbols or abbreviations to indicate type of bill, who requested the legislations (in addition to a Representative or Senator), whether the bill has a fiscal note, whether it has a companion bill, and the current status.
