(2) The chairman of each standing committee shall submit to the Clerk a schedule of that committee's activities for each calendar week of any session. Except as otherwise provided in Subparagraph A(1) of this Paragraph, such schedule shall be submitted not later than two hours after the House convenes in the afternoon or the time of adjournment on the next legislative day following the committee's last scheduled meeting day of the calendar week, whichever is earlier. Except as otherwise provided in Subparagraph A(1) of this Paragraph, the schedule shall be included by the Clerk in the Journal for the day on which it was submitted, and it shall be posted by him in the lobby of the House Chamber.
(3) The schedule shall set forth an agenda for each meeting day during the week allotted to the committee under the uniform meeting schedule adopted pursuant to House Rule 14.20(A). Such agendas shall include the convening time of each committee hearing to be held, the location of the hearing, the instruments by number to be considered during each hearing, listed in the order of proposed consideration thereof, and a brief statement of the subject matter of each instrument scheduled. The agenda may reflect any other pertinent information concerning the scheduled meeting which the chairman deems relevant.
