original bill file

  • The file folder that contains official bill documentation: a copy of the bill, committee reports, staff measure summary, and fiscal and revenue impact statements. The original bill file is distributed to committee staff when the bill is referred to committee and is returned to the desks with official documentation when the bill is reported out of committee. The House uses blue folders and the Senate yellow folders for original bill folders.
