Adequate Review Time of Bills Before Committee Vote House #4

Vote Description

This vote is a vote on amendment #3 to H.2019, House Rules. This amendment calls for legislators to have 24 hours time to review a bill before they are asked to vote on it in committee. It would also mandate them access to all materials from the corresponding legislative hearing.

Mass Fiscal Explanation

Mass Fiscal supports a yes vote because we believe this amendment increases transparency. In order for legislators to do their job, they need time to review legislation and make informed decisions when they are expected to vote. Giving them a simple 24 hours to read a bill should be expected.
