Illinois General Assembly: SB1042 Rule 19(a) / Re-referred to Rules Committee
The following action was taken on May 10 in the House on Senate bill SB1042 ("prop tx-area of urban decay"): "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 Senate by Sen. William E. Brady (R-44) on Jan. 31, "amends the Gas Revenue Tax Act" and "makes a technical change in a section concerning the short title," according to the General Assembly website.
The following senators also co-sponsored the bill: David Koehler (D-46) and Chuck Weaver (R-37).
The following house representatives co-sponsored the bill: Jim Durkin (R-82) and Ryan Spain (R-73).
