Clean bill

A bill, changed so thoroughly in the markup process that differentiating the amendments by typeface would produce an unintelligible bill print, may be introduced as a new "clean" bill and given a new number in the sequential numbering order. A clean bill often is introduced by the subcommittee or committee chair within days of the markup action.
