UPDATE: follow @ChailleMcCann on Twitter for live updates of the rules debate in the House.
The House and Senate reconvene tomorrow at 10am and the House will take up HR 4 , the House Rules for the 83rd Legislative Session.
There are very little preliminary changes looking at the filed version online, except within the committees.
HR 4 as currently filed proposes to change the structure of House Committees in (more or less) three different ways:
Look for Representative Simpson to introduce changes he initially proposed while running for Speaker, including more emphasis on seniority for committee assignments, requiring conference committees to meet in public, including when they “go outside the bounds” (ie, tack on something that wasn't in any version of the House or Senate before), and the idea that no chairman of a current committee can be a member of the Calendars Committee (traditionally the committee consists of all Chairman, bear in mind the Calendars Committee needs unanimous vote to set legislation for a final date to be heard on floor).
These are all subject to debate, discussion, and eventual vote tomorrow on the House Floor. See you there! Learn Your Rules!
