Criminal Justice Subcommittee Begins Legislative Work

This information comes from the office of 70th District State Rep. Clay Doggett, R Pulaski, who represents Giles and parts of Lawrence and Lincoln counties.

The Criminal Justice Subcommittee met for the first time during the 113th General Assembly. Doggett gaveled in the 13 member committee at noon, and he began with a brief introduction to the committee before jumping into the committee’s first calendar.

The Criminal Justice Subcommittee will hear every bill introduced this session that deals with criminal penalties, whether they are increasing, decreasing, adding, or removing penalties. It has been a very busy committee in the past, and it looks like it may be that way again this year! You can watch the Criminal Justice Subcommittee on Tuesdays at 12:00 p.m.

Doggett also serves on the Criminal Justice Committee, which meets at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, the Local Government Committee which meets on Tuesday at 1:30 p.m., and Elections and Campaign Finance Subcommittee, which meets at noon on Wednesday.

After the flurry of activity for the past three weeks leading to the Jan. 31 bill filling deadline, you may think - what happens now?

The House filed more than 1,500 bills, and those bills have some specific steps

Bill Filing Deadline Passes…Now What?

The House filed more than 1,500 bills, which have specific steps to go through before they are ever heard in committee.

Bills must be introduced on the House floor for first and second consideration, and then they will move to the Clerk’s desk.

The House Clerk’s office then has the responsibility of reviewing and assigning bills to the appropriate committees based on subject matter.

Other bills, known as caption bills, will remain on the Clerk’s desk they must go through before they are ever heard in committee.

Local Legislators Collaborate

Another proposal up for consideration, House Bill 30 / Senate Bill 841, sponsored by Doggett, R- Pulaski and State Sen. Joey Hensley, R-Hohenwald, would require a person to obtain a valid entertainer permit from the adult- oriented establishment board in jurisdictions with a board, prior to performing in an adult cabaret entertainment show.

It prohibits public, private and commercial establishments from allowing anyone under age 18 to attend such a performance.

House Bill 30 is scheduled to be heard in the House Cities and Counties Subcommittee on Feb. 8.
