AMENDMENT PROCESS ON H.R. 1501, ADDRESSING YOUTH VIOLENCE AND CHILDREN'S SAFETY

The Rules Committee is planning to meet the week of June 14 to grant a rule which may limit the amendment process for floor consideration of H.R. 1501, a bill addressing youth violence and children's safety.

Any Member wishing to offer an amendment should submit 55 copies and a brief explanation of the amendment to the Rules Committee in room H-312 of the Capitol by Noon on Friday, June 11. Amendments should be drafted to H.R. 1501 as introduced. Members should know that the Rules Committee may consider amendments relating to the causes of and solutions to youth violence and certain firearms proposals.

Members should also 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.

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me or Will Moschella of the Rules Committee staff at 5-9191.
