Amendments

Overview

As each bill is considered, changes or amendments may be made to the bill either by a committee or by the full chamber. Committee rules and the decisions of the chairperson determine what amendments are considered and how they are adopted. Committee reports must be adopted by the full chamber for the committee amendments to become part of the bill. Parliamentary procedure governs the amendment process in the chambers, and most chamber amendments are made during the bill’s second reading.
