HJ Res 48 Reported by Rules Committee

Last night the House Rules Committee finished developing the rule for the consideration of HJ Res 48, Additional Continuing Appropriations Amendments, 2011. This will be considered under a closed rule (no floor amendments will be allowed) and only one hour of debate will be allowed. This is pretty much the same as the rule for the previous short-term CR. This resolution will likely be considered by the House today.

A number of news organizations are reporting that some conservative Republicans are planning on voting against this resolution because they feel that it doesn’t go far enough and that a final resolution needs to be worked out, not another short term deal. That being said, there are almost certainly enough Democrats that will vote in favor of this legislation to allow it to pass in the House, and probably do so in the Senate.
