In accordance with Senate Rule 15, the Secretary of the Senate prepares a calendar for each day’s order of business. The calendar contains the schedule of bills, resolutions, and memorials that the Senate can either consider as a body or in one of its committees of reference. When the Senate considers legislation as a body, the bills, resolutions, and memorials are placed at the front of the calendar. Legislation to be heard by the Senate can be scheduled through the end of session. Senate committee of reference schedules are published for two weeks past the calendar’s publication date. The Senate schedule is fluid; with a vote of the Senate, scheduled items can be laid over to a later date or considered out of order, or new items can be brought up on special orders.
