HR 2892 Rule
The House Rules Committee held their hearing today to develop the rule for the early consideration of the Conference Committee Report on HR 2892. The Committee prepared the resolution (H Res 829) that provides for one hour of debate on the HR 2892 Conference Report. One motion to recommit may be allowed, but no other intervening motions will be allowed. This will allow for a quick, final vote on HR 2892 after the debate is concluded. The Committee filed their report (H Rept 111-300), but it is not yet available on the Library of Congress or the GPO web site. It is likely that H Res 829 will be debated on Thursday or Friday. The Senate is not likely to take up the HR 2892 Conference until Friday at the earliest; more likely it will come next week.
