AMENDMENT PROCESS FOR H.R. 4, THE SECURING AMERICA'S FUTURE ENERGY ("SAFE") ACT OF 2001

The Rules Committee is planning to meet next week to grant a rule which may limit the amendment process on H.R. 4, the Securing America's Future Energy ("SAFE") Act of 2001. The consolidated bill was introduced this morning.

Any Member wishing to offer an amendment should submit 55 copies of the amendment and one copy of a very 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, July 30th. A copy of the form used to submit amendments to the Rules Committee is on the back of this letter. Amendments should be drafted to the text of H.R. 4 as introduced in the House, which will be available on the Rules Committee web site (www.house.gov/rules).

Members should use the Office of Legislative Counsel to ensure that their amendments are properly drafted and should check with the Office of the Parliamentarian to be certain their amendments comply with the rules of the House. If you have any questions, please contact myself or Seth Webb at x5-9191.
