AMENDMENT PROCESS FOR H.R. 2300, THE ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT FOR ALL ACT

The Rules Committee is expected to meet the week of October 18 to grant a rule which may limit the amendment process for floor consideration of H.R. 2300, the Academic Achievement for All Act. The Committee on Education and the Workforce ordered H.R. 2300 reported on October 13.

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 2 p.m. on Tuesday, October 19. Amendments should be drafted to the bill as ordered reported by the Committee on Education and the Workforce. Copies of the bill may be obtained from that Committee.

Members should use the Office of Legislative Counsel to ensure that their amendments to both bills 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 Gena Woolner of the Rules Committee staff at 5-9191.
