AMENDMENT PROCESS FOR

H.R. 2988 – Whistleblower Protection Improvement Act

Dear Colleague:

 

The Committee on Rules is likely to meet the week of September 12, 2022, to grant a rule that may provide a structured amendment process for floor consideration of H.R. 2988, the Whistleblower Protection Improvement Act.

Any Member wishing to offer an amendment must submit a searchable electronic copy of the amendment, which should be provided by the Office of Legislative Counsel, via the Rules Committee’s website by 10:00 a.m. on Friday, September 9, 2022. Please note that staff must be on the House network, either physically or remotely via virtual private network (VPN), in order to access the online submission form.

Members should draft their amendments to the text of H.R. 2988, as reported by the Committee on Oversight and Reform, which is available on the Rules Committee website.

Members should use the Office of Legislative Counsel to ensure that their amendments are drafted in the most appropriate format. Members should also check with the Congressional Budget Office for a preliminary assessment of their amendments’ budgetary effects. Finally, Members should check with the Office of the Parliamentarian and the Committee on the Budget to be certain their amendments comply with the rules of the House and the Congressional Budget Act. If you have any questions, please contact Matthew Price of the Committee staff at 202-225-9091.

Sincerely,

James P. McGovern

Chairman
