The following actions were taken on April 11 in the House on Senate bill SB1628 ("securities records 3+ years"): "Referred to Rules Committee", "First Reading", "Chief House Sponsor Rep. Emanuel Chris Welch" and "Arrived in House".

The Rules Committees is a powerful standing committee in the House controlled by the majority. All legislation is assigned to the Rules Committee as a kind of legislative filter that sorts the more-than-6,000 bills introduced each year. The committee considers the legislation and often assigns it to other committees in order to be heard by other lawmakers. Sometimes, legislation dies in the Rules Committee if the committee decides it does not merit further consideration, occasionally leading to objections from the minority party that just a few legislators from the majority have the power to completely kill their legislation. Minority party members have objected that this makes it difficult or impossible for them to represent their constituents.

The bill, as it was introduced in the Senate by Sen. Ram Villivalam (D-8) on Feb. 15, "amends the Illinois Securities Law of 1953," according to the General Assembly website.

The following house representative co-sponsored the bill: Emanuel Chris Welch (D-7).

The table below shows a history of actions for this bill through April 11.
