                               RESOLUTION


 
     Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that any 
 comprehensive health care reform legislation should be considered on 
   the floor of the House of Representatives under an open rule that 
     authorizes any Representative to offer one or more amendments.

Whereas individuals in the United States desire reform of the current health 
        care system;
Whereas reform of the health care system will have a significant impact on the 
        lives of all individuals in the United States;
Whereas each Representative has been sent to Washington to represent the views 
        of the constituents of the Representative;
Whereas each Representative has heard ideas on health care reform from the 
        constituents of the Representative;
Whereas many individuals have expressed concerns about losing their current 
        health insurance and their ability to continue to see their family 
        physician under any proposed health care reform;
Whereas not all Representatives are members of a committee which has 
        jurisdiction over matters relating to health care reform;
Whereas effective reform of the health care system will only result from open 
        debate in which all Representatives participate;
Whereas effective reform of the health care system will best be accomplished 
        through consideration and passage of a bill to which each Representative 
        had an opportunity to offer amendments; and
Whereas the President, in his speech to a joint session of the Congress, 
        expressed his ideas for health care reform and called on all Members of 
        the Congress to join in a bipartisan effort to achieve such reform: Now, 
        therefore, be it
    Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that 
any comprehensive health care reform legislation should be considered 
on the floor of the House of Representatives under an open rule that 
authorizes any Representative to offer one or more amendments.
