COMMITTEE REPORT.
The Special Committee on Rules report and recommend the adop-

herewith.
E. E. BROWNE,

Chairman.

Jt. Res. No. 10, S.,

Resolved by the senate, the assembly concurring, That the following be the joint rules of the senate and assembly for the regular session of 1913.

Joint Rules of the Legislature Adopted at the Session of 1913.

1. Joint convention. Whenever there shall be a joint convention of the two houses, the proceedings shall be entered at length upon the journal of each house. The lieutenant governor or president of the senate shall preside over such joint convention, and the chief clerk of the assembly shall act as clerk thereof, assisted by the chief clerk of the senate; provided that the lieutenant governor shall not act in said convention except as the presiding officer, and in no case shall have the right to give the casting vote.

2. Committee on conference. In all cases of disagreement between the senate and assembly on amendments, adopted by either house to a bill, memorial or resolution passed by the other house, a committee of conference consisting of three members from each house may be requested by either house, and the other house shall appoint a similar committee. The usual manner of procedure is as follows: the senate, for instance, passes a bill and it is duly messaged to the assembly, which body adopts an amendment to the bill and concurs in it as amended, returning the same, with record of the action of the assembly to the senate; the senate refuses to concur in the assembly amendment and so notifies the assembly; the assembly adheres to its amendment and asks for a committee of conference, and appoints such committee on the part of the assembly, and this action is reported to the senate, whereupon, a like committee is appointed by the senate. The joint committee shall, at a convenient hour agreed upon meet and state to each other, verbally or in writing, the reason of their respective houses for or against the disagreement, and confer thereon, and shall report to their respective houses such agreement as they may arrive at, if any, and if not the fact of a disagreement. The house having possession of the bill at the time the conference report is made shall first act upon such report, if an agreement is reported, and duly message the same to the other house, together with the bill, which if the conference report be concurred in and the bill concurred in as amended, shall be the bill that is finally passed.

3. A nonconcurred in amendment reconsidered. Whenever an amendment has been nonconcurred in by the other house, any member may move to recede from such amendment. If the motion prevail such amendment shall thereby be reconsidered and rejected, and the bill or amendment to which said amendment had been adopted by the house shall thereby be passed or concurred in, as the case may be, so that no further action shall be required thereon in either house.

4. Joint committee hearings. Joint hearings before the corresponding committees of the two houses may be held upon agree ment between the chairmen of the two committees, who shall give three days' notice to the members of their respective committe es of the time and place of such hearings. Such joint hearings shall take the place of separate hearings, and shall be final unless the house where the bill is pending shall order a further hearing before its own committee.

5. Chairman of joint committee. In joint committees standing or select, the chairman of the senate committee shall be chairman of the joint committee.

6. Record of committee proceedings. 1. The chairman or acting chairman of each committee of the legislature shall keep, or cause to be kept, a record, in which there shall be entered :

(a) The time and place of each hearing, and of each meeting of the committee.

(b) The attendance of committee members at each meeting.

(c) The name of each person appearing before the committee, with the name of the person, persons, firm or corporation in whose behalf such appearance is made.

(d) The vote of each member on all motions, bills, resolutions: and amendments acted upon.

2. Such record shall be ready and approved before the expiration of ten days after each committee meeting, or at the next regular meeting of the committee. 3. Every committee hearing shall be open to the public. 4. There shall be filed, in the proper envelope, with every bill or resolution reported upon, a sheet containing the foregoing information as to such bill or resolution, with a duplicate thereof to be filed by the chief clerk numerically by the number of the bill in such form to be most accessible for the use of the members

a.
