The Committee on Rules is likely to meet as early as Tuesday, January 25, 2011 to grant a rule for the consideration of H.R. 359, to reduce Federal spending and the deficit by terminating taxpayer financing of presidential election campaigns and party conventions, which may require that amendments be printed in the Congressional Record prior to their consideration on the Floor.
The bill was introduced and made available electronically on the Rules Committee website on January 20, 2011. Members should draft their amendments to the bill as introduced.
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. If you have any questions, please contact myself or Stephanie Smith at x5-9191.
