True. As of today, HB 1997 was placed on the Floor Calendar. It should show up on the House Report in the next day or two.

SB 5834 is has passed out of the Rules Committee but has not yet been placed on the Senate Floor Calendar. The Senate runs things differently then the House, they could Caucus for 5 minutes, put the bill on the Floor Calendar, and vote on it an hour later.
