|Conference committee reports
Conference committee reports include a signature page for the conferees who
approve the report, the committee’s proposed version of the text, and a side-by-side
analysis of how the proposed version, the senate version, and the house
version of the text differ.
Copies of conference committee report printings are distributed to all members of
the legislature. Reports for the current session are available from House Document Distribution
and Senate Bill Distribution, and reports from previous sessions are
available from the bill files maintained by the Legislative Reference
Library and the Texas State Library and Archives Commission. The reports from the 78th through
the current session are available online as PDF files on the Legislative Reference
Library’s website. The Legislative Archive System (LAS) on the library's website also contains conference committee reports in bill files from the 51st Legislature (1949) through the 77th Legislature (2001). Beginning with the 81st Legislature (2009), conference committee reports are available through TLIS on the legislative intranet. Instructions for preparing and filing conference committee reports
are posted on the Capweb intranet website and also are available from the Chief Clerk’s Office and the Secretary of the Senate’s Office. Click here for further information on conference committees.
