General Appropriations Bill.




C.S.S.B. 1


Pursuant to House Rule 3, Section 4(2), and House Rule 6, Section 16(f), the House Committee on Calendars proposes the following rule governing floor consideration of S.B. 1:


Section 1. All original amendments that will be offered during second reading consideration of the bill must be filed with the chief clerk by 5 p.m. on Thursday, March 28th.


Section 2.      (a) During second and third reading consideration of the bill, any amendment that adds or increases an item of appropriation in the bill is not in order unless the amendment contains an equal or greater reduction in one or more items of appropriation in the bill from the fund or funds against which the appropriation is to be certified.


(b) Notwithstanding the provisions contained in subsection (a), an amendment that reduces an item of appropriation from the list of dedicated accounts in General Revenue identified in writing by the Comptroller of Public Accounts as being excluded from certification, or is contingent on a Comptroller of Public Accounts’ certification or finding of fact, is not in order if the amendment also increases an item of appropriation based on the reduction.


(c) The provisions of this section do not apply to an amendment that makes an adjustment in an item of appropriations solely to correct a technical clerical error.
