AMENDMENT PROCESS FOR

H.R. 1 – For the People Act of 2019

Dear Colleague:                                                   

The Committee on Rules is likely to meet the week of March 4, 2019, to grant a rule that may provide a structured amendment process for floor consideration of H.R. 1 – For the People Act of 2019.

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 20 hard copies of the amendment, one copy of a brief factual summary of the amendment, and an

amendment login form
to the Rules Committee in room H-312 of the Capitol
by 2:00 p.m. on Friday, March 1, 2019
. 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 116-7, which contains the text of H.R. 1 as ordered reported by the Committee on House Administration, with modifications, 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 Matt Price and Eric Delaney
of the Committee staff at 225-9091.

 

Sincerely,

 

    

         James P. McGovern

         Chairman

         Committee on Rules
