The bill was introduced and made available electronically on the Rules Committee website on February 11, 2011. Members should draft their amendments to the bill as introduced. A basic guide on how to draft amendments to this measure 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 Office of the Parliamentarian to be certain their amendments comply with the rules of the House. It is also recommended that if Members are proposing transfer amendments that they consult with the Committee on Appropriations to ensure that their amendments comply with clause 2(f) of Rule XXI.  If you have any questions, please contact myself or Adam Jarvis at x5-9191.
