The Rusty Scalpel Award
Each year, the League, in collaboration with its partners, monitors legislation of interest. Sometimes, a bill gets amended when going through committees after hearings are held. Those amendments are meant to make changes to the bill, not change the bill itself. But there have been times when the subject matter of a bill has been entirely revised without the proper legislative and review processes.
We award the "Rusty Scalpel" when we catch this trick being used. Find out more about it here!
