AMENDMENT PROCESS FOR

H.R. 6082 – Overdose Prevention and Patient Safety Act

 

Dear Colleague:                                                   

The Committee on Rules is likely to meet the week of June 18th to grant a rule that may provide a structured amendment process for floor consideration of H.R. 6082, the Overdose Prevention and Patient Safety Act.

Any Member wishing to offer an amendment must submit a searchable electronic copy of the amendment, which should be provided by the Office of Legislative Counsel, via the Rules Committee’s
website.  Members must also submit 30 hard copies of the amendment, one copy of a brief explanation of the amendment, and an
amendment login form to the Rules Committee in room H-312 of the Capitol
by 10:00 a.m. on Monday, June 18, 2018.  Both electronic and hard copies must be received by the date and time specified.  Members should draft their amendments to

the text of Rules Committee Print 115-75
which contains the text of H.R. 6082, as introduced, and is available on the Rules Committee website.    

Members should use the Office of Legislative Counsel to ensure that their amendments are drafted in the most appropriate format.  Members should also check with the Congressional Budget Office for a preliminary assessment of their amendments’ budgetary effects. 
Finally, Members should check with the Office of the Parliamentarian and the Committee on the Budget to be certain their amendments comply with the rules of the House and the Congressional Budget Act.  If you have any questions, please contact myself or Annie
Minkler of the Committee staff at 225-9191.

 

Sincerely,

 

PETE SESSIONS
