As written, http://www.verifiedvoting.org/downloads/Capuano5%2007%2007.pdf
the Capuano amendment would have added the paper or plastic option
starting in 2010 to the requirement for emergency ballots upon machine
failure starting in 2008.  As inserted, the amendment over-wrote the
requirement for emergency ballots upon machine failure in 2008.
Holt's office is working to correct that in a Manager's Amendment so
that 2008 remains covered.

i.e. the paper ballot provision was mistakenly removed in the amended
version of HR811, but the managers of the House Admin committee are
working to re-amend it to be sure it is reinserted.
