The following actions were taken on April 11 in the House on House bill HB3831 ("medicaid-no gender surgery"): "Referred to Rules Committee", "First Reading", "Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Terri Bryant", "Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Charles Meier", "Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Dan Caulkins", "Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Joe Sosnowski", "Added Chief Co-Sponsor Rep. Blaine Wilhour", "Added Chief Co-Sponsor Rep. C.D. Davidsmeyer", "Added Chief Co-Sponsor Rep. Brad Halbrook", "Added Chief Co-Sponsor Rep. Chris Miller" and "Filed with the Clerk by Rep. Darren Bailey".

The Rules Committees is a powerful standing committee in the House controlled by the majority. All legislation is assigned to the Rules Committee as a kind of legislative filter that sorts the more-than-6,000 bills introduced each year. The committee considers the legislation and often assigns it to other committees in order to be heard by other lawmakers. Sometimes, legislation dies in the Rules Committee if the committee decides it does not merit further consideration, occasionally leading to objections from the minority party that just a few legislators from the majority have the power to completely kill their legislation. Minority party members have objected that this makes it difficult or impossible for them to represent their constituents.

The bill, as it was introduced in the House by Rep. Darren Bailey (R-109) on April 11, "amends the Medical Assistance Article of the Illinois Public Aid Code," according to the General Assembly website.

The following house representatives also co-sponsored the bill: Terri Bryant (R-115), Dan Caulkins (R-101), Andrew S. Chesney (R-89), C.D. Davidsmeyer (R-100), Brad Halbrook (R-102), Margo McDermed (R-37), Charles Meier (R-108), Chris Miller (R-110), Joe Sosnowski (R-69), Dan Ugaste (R-65) and Blaine Wilhour (R-107).
