AMENDMENT PROCESS FOR H.R. 2260, THE PAIN RELIEF PROMOTION ACT OF 1999

The Rules Committee is expected to meet later this week to grant a rule which may limit the amendment process for floor consideration of H.R. 2260, the Pain Relief Promotion Act of 1999.

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 4 p.m. on Wednesday, October 20. Amendments should be drafted to the bill as ordered reported by the Committee on Commerce on October 13, 1999. Copies of the bill may be obtained from that Committee.

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.

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