During the legislative session, the Department
of Legislative Reference publishes the daily floor
proceedings for both the Senate and the House of
Delegates, as well as daily synopses of legislation
introduced. The proceedings list all actions taken on
bills and joint resolutions in either chamber each
day. The synopses summarize legislation introduced
each day, and note the primary sponsor(s), the
committee assignment, and the section of the^4»-
notated Code affected by the legislation. As with
printed bills, the Senate proceedings and synopses
are on white paper, the House on blue. The Depart-
ment also publishes a weekly public hearing sched-
ule specifying the times and places for all legislative
committee meetings. The hearing schedule is pub-
lished weekly all year, but is especially useful during
the legislative session because it lists what bills will
be heard each day

A limited number of synopses, proceedings, and
hearing schedules are available to the public at the
Information Desk of the State House (ground
floor) or the Information Desk in the Legislative
Services Building (ground floor). Copies of printed
bills and joint resolutions may be obtained from the
Bill Room in the Legislative Services Building.

a subscription service known as the Bin Service to
