Updated Conference Reports Web Page on GPO Access

In order to comply with an amendment to the Standing Rules of the Senate, GPO is updating the Conference Reports Web page, effective on the morning of November 9, 2007.

Paragraph nine of Rule XXVIII of the Standing Rules of the Senate now states:

"9. (a)(1) It shall not be in order to vote on the adoption of a report of a committee of conference unless such report has been available to Members and to the general public for at least 48 hours before such vote. If a point of order is sustained under this paragraph, then the conference report shall be set aside."

Normally, conference reports are printed and made available online in the Congressional Record the day after they have been filed. In those cases when GPO is unable to print a conference report the next day, GPO will scan the manuscript and post the searchable PDF of the manuscript on the Conference Reports web page on GPO Access. Otherwise, links to the conference reports as they appear in the Congressional Record will be posted on the Web page.

Links to each conference report will be date and time stamped to establish when the conference report was first made available to the public online. If a conference report is scanned as a manuscript, that version will be superseded when the conference report is made available in the Congressional Record. Links to a conference report in the Congressional will be superseded when the conference report is made available in the Congressional Reports database.

Although the PDF of the scanned manuscript of a conference report will be searchable, handwritten notes or other illegible text may or may not be completely searchable. Regardless, the image of the handwritten notes, etc., will be captured in the PDF of the scanned manuscript.
