 Please keep in mind that each state has its own idiosyncrasies. For instance, our application in Alabama went from the House Rules Committee straight to the Senate Rules Committee without going to the House floor for a vote. In some states, like Florida, we filed our application in both the House and the Senate, and it is simultaneously working through committee in both houses. In still other states, like Kansas, our application must receive a 2/3rds super-majority vote to pass. The variations are endless, so I would encourage you to check out your state legislature'​s website to see how the legislative process works in your state. Please keep in mind that each state has its own idiosyncrasies.
