H Res 885 for HR 2868
The House Rules Committee has published a copy of House Resolution 885 for the consideration of HR 2868 under suspension of the rules anytime through Saturday, November 7th. It provides for a debate in the Committee of the Whole House for 90 minutes on the version of the amendment in nature of a substitute found in Part A of the Rules Committee Report (111-387) which will be considered as an original bill. Amendments Only the ten amendments listed in Part B of the Rules Committee Report may be offered during the debate. There will be 10 minutes of debate allowed on each of the 10 proposed amendments. Those amendments were discussed briefly in my earlier blog today. That discussion was based on the summary of the amendments; the links provided below go to the actual amendments. The ones that will be offered in the debate will be (in the following order): 1. Thompson, Bennie (MS), #12 2. Barton (TX), #14 3. Hastings, Alcee (FL), #10 4. Dent (PA), Olson (TX), #4 5. Dent (PA), #5 6. Flake, Jeff (AZ), #3 7. Schrader (OR), Kissell, Larry (NC), #11 8. McCaul (TX), #1 9. Halvorson (IL), #2 10. Foster (IL), Luján (NM), #8 There will be 10 minutes of debate allowed on each of the 10 proposed amendments. More Information I will be reviewing the details of the amendments that I previously suggested had a chance of passing on the floor. If there is anything new that changes my earlier impression I will report that on the next blog on this bill. I expect that that will be early tomorrow morning when I get a chance to see today’s Congressional Record. That will probably let me know if we will see this bill on the floor tomorrow.
