A bill is printed for distribution at three stages, depending on how far it moves through the legislative process:
- BILLS AS INTRODUCED. After a bill is filed with the clerk of the House of representatives or the Senate, and then read in the chamber of its sponsor, it is considered introduced, and ordered to be printed.
- GENERAL ASSEMBLY (GA). The second copy of a bill is printed only after a bill has been adopted (passed) by the chamber in which it originated. This copy contains any changes, in the form of amendments, which were adopted on the floor of the originating chamber. The GA copy is then forwarded to the opposite chamber for its consideration.
- ENACTED BILLS. Final version of a bill that has passed both chambers of the General Assembly and been amended in the opposite chamber or by a conference committee, and enrolled by both chambers, may be reprinted in its enacted form.
Three types of amendments are printed:
- COMMITTEE AMENDMENTS are changes to a bill proposed by the committee assigned to review it. When several changes are adopted the bill may be rewritten as a Committee Substitute. (Committee Substitutes supersede bills as are included in the purchase price of all bills available by pickup. All other amendments are sold separately.)
- FLOOR AMENDMENTS are changes to a bill proposed by a member when the bill is under consideration by the full chamber membership.
- CONFERENCE COMMITTEE REPORTS are changes agreed to by selected members of both chambers to reconcile differences in the same bill resulting from the adoption of different amendments by each chamber.
