Requests from Legislative Department: Duties of Legislative Counsel

  • priority and order of drafting.


The Legislative Counsel shall assist Legislators in the drafting of the legislative measures which they are authorized to request, including, without limitation, drafting them in proper form and furnishing the Legislators with the fullest information upon all matters within the scope of the Legislative Counsel’s duties.


Except as otherwise provided in this section, the Legislative Counsel shall, insofar as is possible, act upon all Legislators’ requests for the drafting of legislative measures in the order in which they are received.


To assure the greatest possible equity in the handling of such requests, drafting must proceed as follows:


If a Legislator so desires, the Legislator may designate a different priority for the Legislator’s requests which the Legislative Counsel shall observe, insofar as is possible.


The drafting of requests from chairs or members of standing committees or special committees which are made on behalf of those committees must not, except where urgency is recognized, take precedence over the priority established or designated for requests from individual Legislators.


The Legislative Counsel shall give full priority to the drafting of requests from Legislators for which sufficient detail to allow complete drafting of the legislative measure is submitted.
