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 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 5, 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 use the Office of Legislative Counsel to ensure that their amendments are drafted in the most appropriate format. Members are advised to read the Office of Legislative Counsel’s special guidance for preparing NDAA amendments this year. 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 Lori Ismail of the Committee staff at 202-225-9091.
