Current Bill Summary

SR 579 - This proposed rule change requires each senator that wishes to offer a courtesy resolution that will not be read or printed to provide a draft copy of the resolution to each senator. Each senator shall have five days to object to the resolution. If one or more senators object, then the resolution shall not be shown as having been adopted by the Senate and shall only contain the signatures of those senators wishing to sign the resolution. If no senator objects, then the Secretary of the Senate shall prepare properly inscribed copies of the resolution with a notation in the journal, if the Senate is in session, that the resolution has been adopted by the Senate.
