Join us for a discussion with House Chief Clerk Robert Haney. Haney will discuss the House's proposed new kiosk based system that hopes to streamline the bill and resolution authorship process. The new process would eliminate the need for the coauthor and joint author forms that get circulated by members and staff…and sometime lobbyists (informally of course). Haney will also discuss his thoughts on other changes in the pipeline heading into the 86th Legislative Session.
