AMENDMENT PROCESS FOR

H.R. 7 –  Paycheck Fairness Act

Dear Colleague:                                                   

The Committee on Rules is likely to meet the week of March 25 to grant a rule that may provide a structured amendment process for floor consideration of
H.R. 7 – Paycheck Fairness 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 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 12:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 19, 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 116-8
showing the text of H.R. 7 —  Paycheck Fairness Act, as ordered reported by the Committee on Education and Labor, 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 Lori Ismail
of the Committee staff at 225-9091.

Sincerely,

James P. McGovern
