Swedish term or phrase: ärendet föredrages
"Socialnämndens arbetsutskott
Snau §95
Arbetsutskottet beslutar
1. 2. 3. 4.
And then it all ends with:
"Ärendet föredrages".
None of the dictionary words seem to fit.
Is it 'The matter is concluded'?

Notes to answerer
Asker: Why do they put that at the end after describing the whole thing in detail first? Shouldn't it be in the past tense?

Asker: A 'case' of adoption? Doesn't sound right to me.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Larry Abramson: In most cases where decisions are made by government bodies in Sweden, the matter is presented first by a föredragande. This generally also applies to courts.
