According to the passage, which of these describes the "reporting out" process?

A A bill is sent to a standing committee, studied, and then released to be voted upon.

"Reporting out" means a bill is going out for action. The committee will make a recommendation and then a decision is rendered. There is nothing in the passage that indicates when the information is released to the public. The standing committee does not have the power to pass the bill, only to make a recommendation.
