Legislative Debate Flow


All Legislative Delegates are assigned to a Legislature, Chamber and Committee.  Each Legislature (i.e. Livingston or Kean) is comprised of 2 Chambers (Assembly and Senate) and is comprised of approximately 5 Committees that are created by Bill Topics.  

The Bill flow for all Legislative Delegates is as follows:

  1. Bill Author pass their bill out of Committee

  2. Bill proceeds to Chambers
    **NOTE** There is no guarantee that the Bill Author will present the bill first in Chamber.  The Co-Sponsor may in fact present the bill first in their Chamber

    1. Bill Author passes their Bill in Chamber 1 (e.g. Assembly)

    2. Bill’s Co Sponsor passes their Bill in Chamber (e.g. Senate)

    2. Bills are vetoed and returned back to the Chamber
