SUMMARY OF AMENDMENTS

(summaries derived from information provided by sponsors)

Oxley #1
Manager's Amendment. Changes the effective date of the bill from "after December 31, 2005" to instead make the new limitation on the number of congressional gold medals effective on enactment of the bill. The change would insure that the guideline governing the medal program would be in effect for the whole of the 109th Congress and beyond, and not change in the middle of a Congress. (10 minutes)

Crowley #2
Increases the limit of gold medals provided for under the bill from 2 per calendar year to 6 per Congress. (20 minutes)


Crowley #4
Provides for an equitable distribution of gold medals under the bill between the majority party and the minority party. (20 minutes)
