Filing the report

Filing of the bill text as approved along with a written explanation of the committee's actions (the report) to accompany the bill. Since the bill text as amended must be verified as accurate and the report must be written by committee staff, there is a delay between ordering a bill reported and actual filing of the report. No further action on the bill can occur until the report is filed.
