“Committee of the Whole” on
Tuesday, March 4, 1 p.m.
“Committee of the Whole” is the debate stage
of the legislative process. This is where the bill is brought to the Floor and
all the Representatives debate the pros and cons of the bill. COW is often a
very interesting meeting
– a chance to see your elected officials in
action. They DO vote in COW, although it’s usually not a
recorded vote – it’s a voice vote. Sometimes a legislator will
call for a roll call if it’s close.
Anyone is welcome to come to
the House tomorrow and watch the proceedings in the gallery.
You can also watch
on the internet. Those with Cox digital cable should always check to see
what’s playing on that TV channel as well.
Please send an email
to your Representatives (not Senators)
asking them to please vote “yes” in favor of
HCM2003. Email addresses are below.
