how to track hb 2904's progress

 As of today, feb 4, 2011 the bill is in the 'ways and means' committee. It was recently sent there from the Human Services Committee. It will most likely go back to the Human Services Committee.

You can track the bill on the legislature’s website- www.leg.state.or.us 

look on the right hand side at the bottom, you will see an E-Subscribe icon- it will ask for your email address and give you a list of committee’s to choose from- check the box on the House Human Services Committee and the Ways and Means Committee and then at the bottom, click on the submit button. From then on you’ll get copies of all the agendas for that committee and if that bill comes up for a hearing you will know in advance.

you will be able to see when the bill comes up for a hearing, but it is not uncommon for hearings to change last minute per the convenience of the legislators on the various committess.
