Mar 22, 2001


The Rules Committee is planning to meet the week of March 26th to grant a rule which may limit the amendment process on the concurrent resolution on the budget for fiscal year 2002.

Any Member who wishes to offer an amendment should submit 55 copies of the amendment and one copy of a brief explanation of the amendment to the Rules Committee in room H-312 of the Capitol no later than 6:00 p.m. on Monday, March 26th. A copy of the form used to submit amendments to the Rules Committee is on the back of this letter. The text of the concurrent resolution is available at the Budget Committee and on that committee's web site. As in past years, the Rules Committee intends to give priority to amendments offered as complete substitutes.

Members should also use the Office of Legislative Counsel and the Congressional Budget Office to ensure that their substitute amendments are properly drafted and scored, and should check with the Office of the Parliamentarian to be certain their substitute amendments comply with the rules of the House. If you have any questions, please contact myself or Gena Bernhardt at x 5-9191.
