Each year the General Assembly sends referrals to the synods, presbyteries and sessions. Referrals include items that the courts are asked to study and report back to the particular committee, reports for information and legislative decisions.

The reports referred to can be found in the Acts & Proceedings of the 141st General Assembly.

The chart outlining all of the referrals and the court to which they are refer is available here.
