§ 9.73. Reporting bill from committee.
(a) General.If the committee decides that the bill is of sufficient merit to be considered by the house, the committee will direct that the bill be reported out for action. When a committee has ordered a bill to be reported to the house, the member to whom it is assigned must make the report thereof to the house either on the same day or at the next meeting of the house.
(b) Without amendment.The committee may report the bill in exactly the same form as it was introduced. In that case, no amendments are necessary.
(c) With amendment.The committee may feel that the form or substance of the bill can be improved, or the committee may discover errors which should be corrected before the bill comes before the house for action. This presents the first occasion for an amendment of the bill. The amendments are prepared by the Bureau. If the bill is reported as amended it is reprinted with the amendments indicated.
(d) Negative recommendation.In rare instances, the committee may report out a bill with a negative recommendation.
