The following action was taken on March 29 in the House on House bill HB2159 ("medicaid-group ins-breast pump"): "Rule 19(a) / Re-referred to Rules Committee."

The Rules Committees is a powerful standing committee in the House controlled by the majority. All legislation is assigned to the Rules Committee as a kind of legislative filter that sorts the more-than-6,000 bills introduced each year. The committee considers the legislation and often assigns it to other committees in order to be heard by other lawmakers. Sometimes, legislation dies in the Rules Committee if the committee decides it does not merit further consideration.

In the event that a committee fails to report to the House on a bill by applicable deadlines, it is automatically re-referred to the Rules Committee according to House rule 19(a). This is what happened with this bill.

The bill, as it was introduced in the House by Rep. Katie Stuart (D-112) on Feb. 6, "amends the State Employees Group Insurance Act of 1971" and "requires coverage for breast pumps approved by the U," according to the General Assembly website.

The following house representatives also co-sponsored the bill: Kelly M. Cassidy (D-14), Terra Costa Howard (D-48), Sara Feigenholtz (D-12), Robyn Gabel (D-18), LaToya Greenwood (D-114), Natalie A. Manley (D-98), Joyce Mason (D-61) and Linda Chapa LaVia (D-83).
