The following actions were taken on March 29 in the House on House bill HB2343 ("healthy workplace act"): "House Committee Amendment No. 1 Rule 19(c) / Re-referred to Rules Committee", "Rule 19(a) / Re-referred to Rules Committee", "Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Jennifer Gong-Gershowitz", "Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Lamont J. Robinson, Jr.", "Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Bob Morgan", "Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Jonathan Carroll", "Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Gregory Harris", "Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Kelly M. Cassidy", "Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Sara Feigenholtz", "Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Theresa Mah" and "Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Elizabeth Hernandez".

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. Jehan Gordon-Booth (D-92) on Feb. 11, "creates the Healthy Workplace Act and amends the State Finance Act" and "requires employers to provide specified paid sick days to employees," according to the General Assembly website.

The following house representatives also co-sponsored the bill: Carol Ammons (D-103), Jaime M. Andrade, Jr. (D-40), Jonathan Carroll (D-57), Kelly M. Cassidy (D-14), Deb Conroy (D-46), William Davis (D-30), Marcus C. Evans, Jr. (D-33), Sara Feigenholtz (D-12), Robyn Gabel (D-18), Jennifer Gong-Gershowitz (D-17), LaToya Greenwood (D-114), Michael Halpin (D-72), Sonya M.
