Supplemental, Minority, and Additional Views

View-Master, by Enokson

View-Master, by Enokson

Statements in a committee report, presenting individual or group opinions on the measure.

Views of individual committee members or groups of committee members are required to be included if a member or members request permission to include them. Minority views may be filed by committee members who are not minority-party members.

Senate Rule XXVI requires that, when a committee (other than the Senate Appropriations Committee) reports a measure, committee members may have three days to file statements providing their views on the measure, which will be included in the committee’s written report.
