Both chambers of the legislature start off with a Regular Calendar. The Regular Order Calendar is basically all bills in the order in which they came out of committee. Once the session moves along, the Rules Committee of each chamber starts to create its own “Special Order Calendar.” The Special Order Calendar is the new order of business each day that decides when bills will be voted on. Below is a summary of the first Special Order Calendar for the House. I think the Senate has already had a couple of Special Orders for the session already.
Most of these bills are pretty non-controversial but there are always surprises which can slow things down.
