HR 3180 Revived – FY 2018 Intel Authorization

Last night the House Rules Committee met to establish a rule for the consideration of HR 3180 under regular order after it was rejected under the suspension of the rules process. The Committee voted on party lines to bring HR 3180 back to the floor of the House under a closed rule with a longer debate period but no opportunities to amend the bill.

This means that there was nothing done to try to change the votes of the Democrats who opposed the bill so we can expect a similar party line vote. What will be different this time is that only a simple majority will be needed for passage; the bill will almost certainly pass.

The bill will most likely be considered this afternoon.

The bill will be unlikely to be considered in the Senate under its present form.
