About the Senate Legislative Calendar
The Senate's Legislative Calendar is updated each day the Senate is in session. The calendar, composed of several sections, identifies bills and resolutions awaiting Senate floor actions. Most measures are placed on the calendar under the heading "General Orders" in the sequence in which they were added to the calendar. Other sections are provided to address special situations in which floor actions have been deferred and to show the status of bills in conference and of appropriations bills.
The sections of the calendar described below can be viewed individually from the GPO Web site.
This link to GPO provides all Senate and House measures placed on the Senate's Legislative Calendar under "General Orders" along with a cross index to the order number under which it is listed.
