SEC. 167.

INTRODUCTION OF BILLS BY COMMITTEE.

Any committee may introduce a bill appertaining to any subject coming within its consideration, whereupon it shall be read the first time and placed upon the proper second-reading file. When such bill is designed to be a substitute for one or more Assembly bills, the bills for which it is such a substitute shall, by a majority vote of the House, be deemed withdrawn, and shall not appear upon the file. Upon the introduction of a bill by a committee, it shall be numbered as a new bill, read, ordered printed, and placed upon the Assembly file for further action. (Assembly Rule No. 8.)

SEC. 168.

INTRODUCTION OF BILLS AFTER CONSTITUTIONAL RECESS. Immediately upon convening after the constitutional recess the presiding officer shall appoint a standing Committee on Introduction of Bills, to consist of three members.

All motions for leave to introduce bills after the constitutional recess shall be sent to the desk in writing, under the order of “Introduction of Bills,” and at no other time. The motion shall give the title of the bill, and shall be accompanied by the bill. The bill shall thereupon be referred to the Committee on Introduction of Bills.

Joint and Concurrent Resolutions and Constitutional Amendments shall not be referred to the Committee on Introduction of Bills, and shall not require a vote to authorize their introduction.

The committee shall examine bills referred to it with particular reference to the question as to whether there is already any bill in either house of the same character which might be amended to effect the result sought, and generally as to the advisability of introducing the measure.

The committee shall report upon each bill so referred to it on the same legislative day. The report shall be made at the conclusion of the consideration of the Special File.

The committee may, in its discretion, incorporate more than one bill in the resolution to grant leave to introduce, incorporating in the resolution the title of each bill in full, and the roll shall be called upon the adoption of the resolution and no resolution to introduce any such bill shall be adopted without the consent of three-fourths of the members of the Assembly.

If a division of the question is demanded upon the introduction of any particular bill, the division shall be allowed, and the roll called separately upon the bill. The author of any bill shall have not more than ten minutes within which to speak to the question of the introduction of his bill and the Committee on Introduction of Bills may have the same time for reply. (Assembly Rule No. 75. Senate Rule No. 28.)

SEC. 169

JOINT AND CONCURRENT RESOLUTIONS AND CONSTITUTIONAL

AMENDMENTS.

Joint and concurrent resolutions shall be treated the same as bills; provided, that they shall be read but once, and that after they have been reported by a committee; and provided, further, that the ayes and noes shall not be called upon the adoption of concurrent resolution, unless regularly demanded, or required by statute or the constitution. Proposed amendments to the constitution shall be treated the same as bills; provided, they shall be read but once, and only after they have been reported by a committee. (Assembly Rule No. 10.
