Description
The Senate Rules Committee created the Senate Banking and Commerce Committee by passage of Senate Resolution 8 on January 8, 1981 to consider "bills relating to financial institutions and commerce." The Senate Banking, Commerce and International Trade Committee Records consist of 21 cubic feet of textual records and audiotapes. The records cover the years 1981-2004 and are comprised of bill files, hearing files, subject files, correspondence, and Department of Corporations hearing files.
Background
The Senate Rules Committee created the Senate Banking and Commerce Committee by passage of Senate Resolution 8 on January 8, 1981. Initially, the eleven members of the committee considered "bills relating to financial institutions and commerce." On February 11, 1991, with passage of Senate Resolution 11, the committee added "International Trade" both to its name and its oversight. On January 13, 1995, with the adoption of Senate Resolution 10, the committee was reduced to nine members while its scope was increased to include "retail credit interest rates and corporations," necessitating the committee to change its name to Senate Finance, Investment and International Trade. On March 14, 2002, with the passage of Senate Resolution 27, the committee changed its name back to Banking, Commerce and International Trade, though their scope remained the same as before. The researcher should note that because this last name change did not occur until late in the legislative session, many resources for 2001-2002 still refer to the committee as Finance, Investment, and International Trade.
