A referral for the opinion of a committee, on a legislative or non legislative text, will usually be made at the start of the procedure in the European Parliament. For legislative texts, opinions take the form of amendments proposed to the report drafted by the main committee, accompanied by short justifications where appropriate. For non-legislative texts, opinions take the form of suggestions for parts of the text. Draft opinions are then voted upon by the committee, before being submitted to the committee responsible for drafting the report. This page shows the draft opinions before they are voted.
