The House Rules Committee met this afternoon to formulate the rule for the consideration of HR 2279. They adopted a structured rule where there will be limited debate and only two specific amendments may be offered from the floor. The amendments that are listed in the Committee Report (H. Rept 113-322) on H. Res. 455 do not include either of the amendments proposed by Rep. Connelly (D,VA) that I described in my earlier blog post.
This bill will come to the floor for debate tomorrow afternoon and sometime that evening or Friday morning the House will probably vote to pass the bill; generally along party lines. If it were to actually come to the floor in the Senate, it might pass.
