2018 Committee Assignments

The Council has imposed upon itself a committee system, which operates pursuant to the County Council Rules of Procedure.  The committee system operates prior to the introduction of a bill, and when determined to be appropriate by a majority of the Council members present, after introduction to permit further study or modification to a bill.  It should be noted that, notwithstanding the establishment of the committee system, the Council may waive the Rules of Procedure and alter the committee process for a particular bill and that the Charter permits any Council Member to introduce any bill on any legislative session day.
