Order of components
We recommend that an article about a state legislative chamber include these components (sections), in this order.
All 148 articles already exist, with standard categories, so the main purpose of these writing guidelines is to allow further development of the articles and to ensure that, as far as possible given the individual variances between legislative chambers, the articles follow a standard flow.
