How Standing Committees Operate

Committees examine matters referred to them by the House, and must report their findings back to the House.

After receiving First and Second Reading, a Bill is referred to a Standing or Special Committee, or to a Committee of the Whole House for consideration. It is during this third stage, the Committee Stage, that the content of a Bill is reviewed in detail.

Citizens interested in making a public presentation relating to a particular Bill referred to a Standing Committee may register on a "presenters list" by contacting the Office of the Clerk of the Legislative Assembly.

Committees may also consider Annual Reports.
