simple resolution Progress
- The house has not votedIntroducedJanuary 3rd, 2019
This rules package reflects the priorities of the incoming House Democratic majority: it empowers the House to stand up for Obamacare against legal challenges, empowers a special committee to address the climate crisis, allows religious headwear to be worn on the floor, and creates a new path for bipartisan bills to come to the House floor.
This rules package undoes too many of the changes the House GOP made, like imposing term limits on committee chairs and taking projected economic changes into account when analyzing a bill’s cost. Alternatively, its PAYGO point-of-order would make it too easy to stop or undermine progressive bills because of their cost.
