Illinois General Assembly: HJRCA27 actions on Feb. 15

Legislation

By Local Labs News Service | Feb 16, 2019


The following actions were taken on Feb. 15 in the House on House bill HJRCA27 ("con amend-state finance"): "Referred to Rules Committee", "Read in Full a First Time" and "Filed with the Clerk by Rep. Jaime M. Andrade, Jr.".

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, occasionally leading to objections from the minority party that just a few legislators from the majority have the power to completely kill their legislation. Minority party members have objected that this makes it difficult or impossible for them to represent their constituents.

The bill, as it was introduced in the House by Rep. Jaime M. Andrade, Jr. (D-40) on Feb. 15, "proposes to amend the Finance Article of the Illinois Constitution," according to the General Assembly website.

The following house representatives also co-sponsored the bill: Mark Batinick (R-97), Monica Bristow (D-111), Terri Bryant (R-115), Dan Caulkins (R-101), Terra Costa Howard (D-48), Mary Edly-Allen (D-51), Michael P. McAuliffe (R-20), Margo McDermed (R-37), Martin J. Moylan (D-55), Dave Severin (R-117), Allen Skillicorn (R-66), Joe Sosnowski (R-69), Dan Ugaste (R-65), Patrick Windhorst (R-118), Sam Yingling (D-62) and Jerry Costello, II (D-116).
