Guide to Amending Proposed Resolutions
Refrain from stylistic edits to resolutions; edits should only be made if they improve the clarity of the resolution’s language.
Substantive edits to whereas and resolved statements are amendments. Please remember the following:
- If an amendment is being proposed, copy and paste the original language below the resolution, and then make the changes with underscores and strikethroughs as necessary. Do not use Track Changes!
- An amendment may result in a mismatch with the original title. If the resolution title needs to be changed, include that in the amendment.
- Make sure amendments don’t result in inconsistencies within a resolution. For instance, if an amendment to a resolved statement changes the intent of the resolution, the supporting whereas statements may also need to be amended to support the amended resolved statement.
- Don’t forget to include your contact information for each amendment!
