Activity in EP plenary sessions in the seventh term (July 2009 – June 2014)

The European Parliament adopts its positions by voting in plenary session on legislative and budgetary texts, as well as on own-initiative reports and other resolutions. The Parliament’s 20 standing committees prepare the ground, undertaking detailed consideration of draft EU legislation and holding hearings on key issues.
