|Senate amendment printings
Senate amendment printings are prepared for house bills returned from the senate with
changes. The printing includes the house engrossment version of the bill, the original version
of the bill, the senate committee substitute if one is adopted, and all floor amendments adopted
by the senate.
Copies of senate amendment printings are distributed to all members of the house. Senate
amendment printings for the current legislative session are available from House Document Distribution, and senate amendment printings from previous sessions are available from the bill
files maintained by the Legislative Reference Library and the Texas State Library and Archives Commission.
Senate amendment printings from the 80th and following sessions are accessible online
through TLIS on the legislative intranet or TLO on the Internet.
Beginning with the 80th Regular Session, side-by-side analyses of the differences between
the house and senate versions of each house bill at the senate amendments stage are prepared.
These analyses are available only online and can
be accessed through TLIS on
the legislative intranet or TLO on the Internet.
