Amendments and Compromise Amendments

This week Amelia and the rest of MEPs are in Strasbourg for the plenary sessions. If you follow it even just a little, you might have heard several times the expressions ‘Amendment’ and ‘Compromise Amendment’. If you have wondered what they are, here you have the answer.

  • An Amendment is a change in a concrete legislation proposed by a MEP or a political group.
  • A Compromise Amendment is a change in a legislation agreed by two or several MEPs that had proposed amendments to the same paragraph of the legislation.
