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: 

  1. 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!
  2. An amendment may result in a mismatch with the original title. If the resolution title needs to be changed, include that in the amendment.
  3. 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.
  4. Don’t forget to include your contact information for each amendment!
