Rule 13.8.  Committee hearing

No legislative instrument shall be reported by a committee unless an open, public hearing on the instrument first has been held by the committee, with due notice given and opportunity provided for interested persons to appear to testify for or against the proposal. A majority of the quorum present must vote to report the measure at a meeting of the committee. No committee shall report a measure to the Senate pursuant to a procedure, referred to as a "round robin," under which a legislative instrument is reported by a committee after a majority of the members of the committee sign a petition to report it to the Senate or pursuant to any similar procedure. The Senate shall not receive a committee report on any measure which is made pursuant to such a procedure.
