THE FIRST IS ON LINE 42, YOU WILL SEE THAT IF YOU WANT TO BE REMOVED AS A COPATRON ON A BILL, WE'VE PUT THAT DATE AS FEBRUARY THE 17th, WHICH IS THE FRIDAY BEFORE THE END OF -- A WEEK BEFORE THE END OF SESSION, CHIBL IS EARLIER THAN WHAT WE'VE DONE HISTORICALLY AND WE MOVED THAT TIME FRAME FROM 5:00 P.M. TO 3:00 P.M. TO ALLOW THE CLERK'S OFFICE TO EFFECTUATE THOSE MORE EFFICIENTLY. I'LL DRAW YOUR ATTENTION TO A COUPLE OTHER PLACES ON RULE NUMBER 7, LINE 110 AND 111, IT IS NO BILL OR RESOLUTION SHALL BE OFFERED AFTER JANUARY -- FRIDAY, JANUARY 20th, SO NEXT FRIDAY, ALL BILLS HAVE TO BE IN PLACE. I KNOW THAT IT COMES UP QUICKLY, SO REMIND EVERYBODY THAT THAT ONE IS IN PLACE, PARTICULARLY IN A SHORT SESSION. AND THEN, MR. PRESIDENT, IF YOU LOOK ON PAGE 3 OF THE DOCUMENT, RULE NUMBER 17, YOU WILL SEE THAT JUDICIAL ELECTIONS, THE FIRST ONE WILL BE HELD ON FEBRUARY 17th AND THE SECOND ONE ON FEBRUARY THE 20th, SO WE PUT THAT IN PLACE. AND I WANT TO DRAW TO IT EVERYBODY'S ATTENTION BECAUSE THOSE DAYS TEND TO BE A LITTLE LONGER AS YOU'RE TRYING TO DO YOUR SCHEDULE. THEN, MR. PRESIDENT, YOU WILL SEE ON RULE 18, LINE 151 AND 152, NO COMMENDING OR MEMORIAL RESOLUTION SHALL BE OFFERED AFTER FEBRUARY THE 20th, SO THE SAME DAY WE DO JUDGES IS THE LAST DAY TO DO COMMENDING RESOLUTIONS THAT ARE JOINT. AND THEN, MR. PRESIDENT, IF YOU LOOK ON DOWN RULE NUMBER 22, LINES 170 AND 171, YOU'LL SEE THAT RESOLUTIONS FOR MEMORIAL OR COMMENDING THAT ARE JUST SENATE RESOLUTIONS, THE LAST DAY IS THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 23rd. AND I DRAW THOSE ATTENTIONS -- THOSE DATES TO YOUR ATTENTION BECAUSE I KNOW THEY TEND TO SNEAK UP ON US AND WE'LL REMIND YOU OF THOSE. BUT THOSE ARE REALLY -- SOME OF THOSE WERE CHANGES. WE MOVED THEM A LITTLE FARTHER FORWARD THAN PREVIOUS YEARS TO MAKE SURE WE CAN OPERATE IN THE LAST DAYS A LITTLE MORE EFFICIENTLY. AND WITH THAT, MR.
