Postponed Amendment Deadlines Announcement

Dear Colleague:

Due to inclement weather and the Majority Leader’s scheduling announcement, the deadlines for H.R. 2824 and H.R. 2641 have been postponed.  All amendments must now be received by 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, March 4, 2014.

There is no change to the amendment deadline for H.R. 3826, the Electricity Security and Affordability Act, which is also 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday.

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.  Members must also submit 30 hard copies of the amendment, one copy of a brief explanation of the amendment, and an amendment login form to the Rules Committee in room H-312 of the Capitol by 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, March 4, 2014 Both electronic and hard copies must be received by the date and time specified. 

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 myself or the appropriate Committee staff at 225-9191.
