A document that compares two or more versions of the same bill or joint resolution. Examples of side-by-side analyses include a senate or house amendment analysis that shows the differences between the final senate and house versions of a bill or joint resolution and a conference committee report analysis that depicts how the differences between the senate and house versions of a measure have been resolved by the conference committee. A senate amendment analysis is required by house rule, and a conference committee report analysis is required by both senate rule and house rule.
