Drafts

Overview

As each bill is considered, changes may be made to the bill either via a committee or floor chamber amendment. Committee rules and decisions of the chairperson determine which 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. In the case of these new draft committee amendments, they weren’t offered or acted up on, hence their associated amendment won’t exist under the amendments area and they come under the drafts section. In the Resource section below, committee amendments are delineated as “drafts”, whereas floor amendments are delineated as “amendments”. Draft assets are only available to the public API when released by the Chair of the committee. Not all released or offered amendments will be incorporated into the bill.
