RESUME

The House is expected back one week after the election.

Majority leader Aden Dualle will table the bill in the afternoon when the House resumes its sittings.

Unlike the other bills, which are required to go through the required processes like public hearings, the Supplementary Appropriation bill will be tabled and passed in one sitting. 

This means that it will have to go through the three stages at ago- the first reading, which is the introduction, second reading, the debate stage and the third reading, the stage where MPs introduce changes to bills.
