Legislative Commissioners' Office
The Legislative Commissioners' Office (LCO) can have bills up to ten days.
  1. One major reason for LCO review is to determine if the bill is constitutional or not. If the LCO's research decides that the bill is inconsistent with the state constitution, they will send it back to committee with an explanation. The committee can change the bill or just give it another favorable report.

    1. An unconstiutional bill which still receives a favorable report is sent to the House and Senate chambers labeled as "Favorable Report, Matter Not Approved by Legislative Commissioner."
  1. The LCO also edits the bills. If they make any changes to the content, they must explain this in a short report.
