    Pursuant to clause 1(d) of rule XI of the Rules of the 
House of Representatives, the Committee on Rules transmits 
herewith its Survey of Activities for the 115th Congress.

    I. HISTORY, FUNCTION, AND ORGANIZATION OF THE COMMITTEE ON RULES


                            A. Introduction

    In the 115th Congress, the Committee on Rules has retained 
its traditional structure and purpose in the House of 
Representatives. Its size and super majority party ratio remain 
the same as it has in previous Congresses under both Republican 
and Democratic control. Its central function continues to be 
setting the conditions under which major legislation is 
considered on the House floor, including the terms of debate 
and the consideration of amendments.
    The Committee has been described by various scholars and 
Members as a ``legislative traffic cop,'' ``gatekeeper,'' 
``field commander,'' as well as ``the Speaker's Committee.'' 
All of these terms underscore the critical role the Committee 
plays in the conduct of legislative business in the House. 
While the primary responsibility of the Committee is to be the 
scheduling arm of the majority leadership, it also exercises 
``original jurisdiction'' over the rules of the House, joint 
rules of the House and Senate, the order of business in the 
House, and the budget process. Although the principal purpose 
of this report is to summarize the activities of the Rules 
Committee during the 115th Congress, its secondary purpose is 
to view these activities in the context of the evolution of the 
Committee and the House of Representatives since the First 
Congress in 1789.

                        B. History and Function

     The history of the Committee on Rules roughly parallels 
the evolution of the House over the past 225 years. The first 
Rules Committee was established as a select committee of the 
House on the second day of the First Congress, April 2, 1789, 
pursuant to the Constitutional mandate in Article I, section 5, 
clause 2 that, ``Each House may determine the rules of its 
proceedings...''. The House order creating the Committee stated 
that ``a committee be appointed to prepare and report such 
standing rules and order of proceeding as may be proper to be 
observed in this House...''.
    The Members serving on the Rules Committee have included 
some of the most prominent Members of the House. Of the first 
11 Members on the Committee, several were Founding Fathers of 
the nation. These included: (1) Representative James Madison of 
Virginia, the ``Father of the Constitution'' and future 
President of the United States; (2) Representative Roger 
Sherman of Connecticut, the only one of the Founding Fathers to 
help prepare and sign all four of the most important documents 
of the early nation: the Articles of Association, the Articles 
of Confederation, the Declaration of Independence, and the 
Constitution; (3) Representative Elias Boudinot of New Jersey, 
President of the Continental Congress from November 1782 to 
November 1783; and (4) Representative Elbridge Gerry of 
Massachusetts, a future Vice President of the United States and 
a signer of both the Declaration of Independence and the 
Articles of Confederation.
    Five days after its appointment, the first Select Committee 
on Rules reported back a set of four rules promulgating (1) the 
duties of the Speaker, (2) decorum and debate, (3) the 
disposition of bills, and (4) the operations of the Committee 
of the Whole. Six days later, on April 13th, the Select 
Committee reported an additional eight rules dealing with such 
matters as the service of Members on committees, Members' 
attendance during floor proceedings, the creation of a standing 
Committee on Elections, the duties of the Clerk, and the duties 
of the Sergeant at Arms. Following the adoption of these rules 
by the House, the Select Committee was dissolved.
    During the first 90 years of the House, this pattern 
continued. At the beginning of a Congress the House would 
establish a Select Committee on Rules, which would report any 
recommended revisions in the standing rules of the House from 
those of the previous, and then dissolve. In some Congresses, 
the House did not appoint a Select Committee on Rules, and 
operated under the rules recommended by the Committee and 
adopted in the preceding Congress.
    Although in its early years the House relied primarily on 
select committees to draft legislation, by the mid-nineteenth 
century this system evolved to include 34 standing committees, 
which assumed such responsibilities. The House briefly 
converted the Rules Committee into a standing committee between 
1849 and 1853. In 1880, the House permanently converted the 
Rules Committee into a standing committee chaired by the 
Speaker of the House. It was this Speaker-Chair position, 
combined with the newly-emerging role of the Committee to 
report rules managing consideration of legislation on the 
floor, that cement the Committee's place in legislative 
history.
    In 1883, the modern Rules Committee began to emerge when 
the House upheld the right of the Committee to issue ``special 
orders of business'' or ``special rules'' providing for the 
consideration of legislation from other committees. By 1890, 
this new role was accepted as the exclusive prerogative of the 
Rules Committee.
    Special rules, which were and are House resolutions, also 
known as simple resolutions reported from the Rules Committee, 
were important because they only required a majority vote of 
the House to provide for the consideration of bills out of the 
order in which they appeared on the floor Calendar. This is 
notable because, until the use of special rules, a two-thirds 
vote was required to suspend the rules and consider a bill out 
of order. A simple majority could now accomplish what 
previously required a super-majority. Special rules gained 
importance because they gave the House flexibility in its 
legislative agenda, which in turn, allowed for House leadership 
to respond to changing judgments about the nation's needs at 
any given time.
    The individual most responsible for recognizing and 
utilizing the full potential of the combined powers of the 
Speaker and Rules Committee chair was Representative Thomas 
Brackett Reed of Maine, who served in those two roles between 
1889-91 and l895-99. Not only did he use his authority as 
Speaker to make rulings from the Chair that outlawed certain 
dilatory and obstructionist tactics on the House floor, but 
also proceeded to codify these rulings, known as ``Reed's 
Rules,'' in the standing rules of the House through his 
capacity as Rules Committee chair. Speaker Reed also made 
regular use of the Rules Committee to report special rules, 
enabling him to schedule bills to be considered on the floor 
when he wished and under his terms of debate and amendment.
    It was not until 1910 that this powerful Speaker-Chair 
combination was broken up by a revolt against Speaker Joseph 
Cannon of Illinois, who had served as Speaker and Rules 
Committee chair since 1903. A group of progressive Republican 
insurgents joined with the Democratic minority to bypass the 
Rules Committee and directly amend the House Rules from the 
floor. When Speaker Cannon upheld a point of order that only 
the Rules Committee could recommend changes in House Rules, the 
group voted to overturn the ruling. They were then able to 
amend the rules of the House, stripping the Speaker of his 
chairmanship and membership on the Rules Committee, as well as 
his power to appoint Members to the Committee. They also voted 
to enlarge the Committee from five to 10 Members, elected by 
the House. The following year, the new Democratic majority in 
the House completed the revolution by taking away the Speaker's 
power to appoint Members to all the other committees of the 
House. Since then, the House has elected all Members of 
standing committees.
    This revolt had far-reaching and long-lasting consequences. 
The standing committees became independent power centers, no 
longer directly accountable to the Speaker. While the Rules 
Committee continued to serve as the scheduling arm of the 
Leadership, it illustrated its independence when reaction set 
in against the New Deal in 1937. From that time until 1961, the 
Committee was dominated by a conservative coalition of Southern 
Democrats and Republicans who would sometimes refuse to report 
rules on bills the majority leadership wanted on the floor, or 
would only report such rules under their terms and timing. A 
successful effort by Speaker Sam Rayburn of Texas and President 
John F. Kennedy in 1961 to enlarge the Committee from 12 to 15 
Members, including two more liberal Democrats, did not resolve 
this problem. It was not until the mid-1970s, with a large 
influx of new Democrats, that the Rules Committee was fully 
restored as an arm of the majority leadership.
    This reform movement, with the emergence of more 
independent Members and the proliferation of semi-autonomous 
subcommittees furthered the decentralization of power in the 
House. This decentralization soon led to pressures to give the 
majority leadership, particularly the Speaker acting through 
the Rules Committee, more authority to direct the business of 
the House.
    In 1975, the Democratic Speaker was given authority under 
Caucus rules to appoint all Rules Committee Democrats, subject 
to Caucus ratification. In 1989, the Republican Conference gave 
the minority leader the same authority to appoint all Rules 
Committee Republicans. The slates of appointees recommended by 
both Leaders are still subject to approval by the whole House 
in the form of a simple resolution. This practice continues 
today. In the 115th Congress, all of the Republican Members 
were appointed to the Rules Committee through the adoption of 
H. Res. 6. The Democratic Members of the Committee were 
appointed through the adoption of H. Res. 7 and H. Res. 816. 
Overall, the Rules Committee continues its role of facilitating 
the deliberation and amendment of major legislation in the 
House.
    While the most high-profile role of the Rules Committee is 
to direct legislative traffic to the House floor, the Committee 
is also responsible for other important business. For instance, 
as part of its gate-keeping work, the Committee must help 
resolve jurisdictional disputes between other standing 
committees. As is often the case, committees will report 
legislation with amendments that impact the jurisdiction of 
other committees. When legislation with such cross-
jurisdictional language comes to the Rules Committee, the 
Committee must resolve these disputes to ensure that 
legislation reaches the floor without controversy between House 
committees.
    Finally, with the aid of the Office of the Parliamentarian, 
the Committee plays a role in ensuring compliance with the 
House Rules. Authorizing and appropriating committees often 
seek guidance in how to conduct their oversight and legislative 
responsibilities in accordance with the Rules, and when 
questions arise regarding the propriety of certain courses of 
action, they turn to the Rules Committee or the Parliamentarian 
for the answer.
    Overall, and notwithstanding changes in majority control, 
the Rules Committee continues its role of facilitating the 
deliberation and amending of legislation in the House.

          C. Committee Organization During the 115th Congress

    At the beginning of the 94th Congress, the Committee 
membership was increased from 15 Members (ten Democrats and 
five Republicans) to 16 Members (11 Democrats and 5 
Republicans). This ratio remained until the 98th Congress, when 
the membership was reduced to 13 Members (9 Democrats and 4 
Republicans). The membership has remained at 13 for the 114th 
Congress. The ratio of majority party Members to minority party 
Members also has remained the same. As in the 112th and 113th 
Congresses, Republicans are currently serving in the majority, 
with Democrats in the minority. During the 110th and 111th 
Congresses, Democrats were in the majority.
    Eleven of the thirteen Members of the Rules Committee 
served on the Committee during the 114th Congress. The 
returning Republican Representatives are Pete Sessions of 
Texas, Tom Cole of Oklahoma, Rob Woodall of Georgia, Michael C. 
Burgess of Texas, Doug Collins of Georgia, Bradley Byrne of 
Alabama, and Dan Newhouse of Washington. The new Republican 
Representatives appointed to serve on the Rules Committee for 
the 115th Congress are Ken Buck of Colorado and Liz Cheney of 
Wyoming. The returning Democratic Representatives are Louise 
McIntosh Slaughter of New York, James P. McGovern of 
Massachusetts, Alcee L. Hastings of Florida, and Jared Polis of 
Colorado. After the passing of Representative Slaughter, 
Representative James P. McGovern was named Ranking Member and 
the new Democratic Representative appointed to serve on the 
Rules Committee was Norma Torres of California.
    The Committee held its organizational meeting on January 4, 
2017. Chair Pete Sessions of Texas opened the meeting, welcomed 
members, and introduced new members.
    Mr. Cole offered a motion that the Rules Committee adopt 
the proposed Committee rules for the 115th Congress. Chair 
Sessions announced that the proposed Committee rules would be 
considered as read and open for amendment at any point. Five 
amendments were considered by record votes. Amendment #1, 
offered by Ms. Slaughter, would require that our committee 
reports accompanying each special rule contain a running tally 
of how many closed rules have been reported this Congress, and 
failed by record vote of 4-9. Amendment #2, offered by Mr. 
McGovern, would require any amendment proposed to be self-
executed or any amendment in the nature of a substitute made in 
order as original text be available to Members at least 24 
hours in advance, and failed by record vote of 4-8. Amendment 
#3, offered by Mr. Hastings, would require notice to each 
Member of the House when the Committee anticipates reporting a 
closed rule, and failed by record vote of 4-8. Amendment #4, 
offered by Mr. Polis, would require that any bill or substitute 
amendment considered by the Committee be accompanied by a cost 
estimate from CBO, and that the estimate not reflect 
macroeconomic effects, and failed by record vote of 4-8. The 
motion by Mr. Cole to adopt the Committee rules for the 115th 
Congress was adopted by voice vote.
    Mr. Cole offered a motion that pursuant to rule 5(c) of the 
Committee on Rules, the Subcommittee on Rules and Organization 
of the House and the Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget 
Process would each be composed of five majority and two 
minority Members, identical to the ratio used in recent 
Congresses. Mr Cole's motion was adopted by voice vote. Chair 
Sessions asked unanimous consent that any appointments to the 
subcommittees be postponed until the chair and ranking member 
had time to consult with members and each other.
    Finally, the majority and minority staff of the Committee 
on Rules was approved and the committee staff was authorized to 
make technical and conforming changes to rules reported by the 
Committee for the duration of the 115th Congress.
    On January 31, 2017, pursuant to clause 2(d) of rule XI of 
the Rules of the House, Chair Sessions designated Tom Cole as 
the Vice Chair of the Rules Committee to act on the Chair's 
behalf during a temporary absence of the Chair.
    On February 1, 2017, Chair Sessions appointed Mr. Collins 
as Chair of the Subcommittee on Rules and Organization of the 
House and Mr. Woodall as Chair of the Subcommittee on 
Legislative and Budget Process. Chair Sessions also appointed 
the majority and minority Members to the two subcommittees as 
follows:
    Subcommittee on Rules and Organization of the House: Mr. 
Collins (Chair), Mr. Byrne, Mr. Newhouse, Ms. Cheney, Mr. 
Sessions, Ms. Slaughter (Ranking Member), and Mr. McGovern.
    Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process: Mr. Woodall 
(Chair), Mr. Burgess, Mr. Byrne, Mr. Newhouse, Mr. Buck, Mr. 
Hastings (Ranking Member), and Mr. Polis.

          D. Information Transparency for the Rules Committee

    Due to its unique role in the legislative process, the 
Committee on Rules has traditionally assumed the role as the 
portal through which Members and the public access major 
legislation in the House. Whether it is early access to 
legislation or conference reports, or the text of amendments 
submitted to the Committee or made in order for the floor, the 
Rules Committee has always served as the central repository for 
those documents.
    H. Res. 5 of the 112th Congress dictated the establishment 
of an official central location for the posting of electronic 
legislative documents. This electronic repository was launched 
at docs.house.gov on January 13, 2012 (beginning of the 112th 
Congress, Second Session). Along with the Majority Leader's 
office, the Committee on Rules still maintains its data.
    The Committee's focus of emphasizing transparency can 
further be seen on the Rules Committee website 
(www.rules.house.gov). The ability to follow legislation and 
amendments through the Committee's internal process to the 
House floor can be done so with more ease and detail. Among the 
new features for the site--
     Enhanced search functionality, including the 
ability to filter results by bill type, rule type, manager, 
congress, and committee of jurisdiction;
      A more accessible homepage, featuring active 
bills pending with the Committee or on the House floor, access 
to the new search features, and a log of the most recent 
meeting announcements, amendment processes for specific bills, 
and press releases;
     An ability to sort amendments submitted to 
individual bills by attributes including sponsor name, 
amendment number, status, or version; and
     A comprehensive legislation landing page, which 
lists all bills considered in the Committee, with ``at-a-
glance'' information including hearing date and time, amendment 
process, managers when assigned, and status of the bill through 
the committee and House floor process.
    Additionally, the website also maintains links to much of 
the historical and educational material that Members, staff, 
citizens, and academics find useful in understanding the 
legislative process in the House. Accordingly, throughout this 
Congress, the Committee's website has averaged over 91,000 hits 
per month with visitors from over 175 countries.
    The Committee continues to update and modernize those 
materials and plans on adding more in the months to come.
    In addition to the Committee's public website, the 
Committee also operates the Committee on Rules Electronic 
Database (CORED), an internal tracking and workflow system. 
Originally developed in the 109th Congress as a statistical 
repository, majorities of both parties have made significant 
investments to turn it into the backbone of the Committee's 
operation it is today.
    This system serves as the interface through which Member 
offices submit amendments to the Committee. Once submitted, 
CORED allows the Committee to quickly process amendments, as 
well as track them throughout the Rules Committee process. 
Ultimately, CORED is responsible for producing the templates of 
each resolution and report needed for filing with the House. 
CORED also streamlines the posting of amendments and other 
information on the Committee's public website. CORED allows the 
Committee to simultaneously increase its efficiency and improve 
its transparency by closely linking the production of committee 
work product to its public disclosure responsibilities.

 II. HOUSE RULES CHANGES ADOPTED AT THE BEGINNING OF THE 115TH CONGRESS


                            A. Introduction

    The resolution proposing the rules of a new Congress is 
usually called up by the chair of the Rules Committee from the 
prior Congress or the Majority Leader, debated for one hour, 
and given an up-or-down vote. Traditionally, the minority 
attempts to bring up an alternative by defeating the previous 
question on the resolution.
    On January 3, 2017, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy called 
up the opening day rules package (H. Res. 5). The Delegate from 
the District of Columbia, Ms. Eleanor Holmes Norton, moved to 
refer the resolution to a select committee of five members, to 
be appointed by the Speaker, not more than three of whom shall 
be from the same political party, with instructions not to 
report back the same until it has conducted a full and complete 
study of, and made a determination on, whether there is any 
reason to deny Delegates voting right in the Committee of the 
Whole House on the state of the Union. That motion was tabled 
by record vote of 228 to 184. The previous question on H. Res. 
5 was ordered by a record vote of 237 to 193. A motion to 
commit the resolution with instructions failed by record vote 
of 193 to 236 and the resolution was agreed to by a record vote 
of 234 to 193.

  B. Summary of Substantive Changes Contained in H. Res. 5, Adopting 
                   House Rules for the 115th Congress


Resolved Clause.

    This section provides that the Rules of the 114th Congress 
are the Rules of the 115th Congress, except for the amendments 
contained in section 2 of the resolution and orders contained 
in sections 3, 4, and 5.

Changes to the Standing Rules.

    Subsection (a) authorizes the Sergeant-at-Arms to impose a 
fine against a Member, Delegate, or the Resident Commissioner 
for the use of an electronic device for photography, audio or 
visual recording, or broadcasting on the House floor in 
contravention of clause 5 of rule XVII and any applicable 
Speaker's announced policy on electronic devices. A fine for a 
first offense will be $500 and $2,500 for subsequent offenses. 
Any subsequent offense will be assessed at the higher amount, 
regardless of whether it is connected to any other offense by 
time or proximity. The subsection provides that any Member, 
Delegate, or Resident Commissioner that has been assessed a 
fine may appeal the fine in writing to the Committee on Ethics 
not later than 30 calendar days or five legislative days, 
whichever is later, after notification. Upon receipt of an 
appeal, the Committee on Ethics is provided 30 calendar days or 
five legislative days, whichever is later, to either dismiss 
the fine or allow it to proceed. Upon a determination regarding 
the appeal or if no appeal has been filed at the expiration of 
the period, the chair of the Committee on Ethics shall promptly 
notify the Member, Delegate, or the Resident Commissioner, the 
Speaker and the Chief Administrative Officer. The Speaker is 
required to promptly lay such notification before the House. 
The Sergeant-at-Arms, Committee on Ethics, and Chief 
Administrative officer are authorized to establish policies and 
procedures to implement this subsection. Upon notification from 
the chair of the Committee on Ethics, the Chief Administrative 
Officer is shall deduct the amount of any fine from the net 
salary of the Member, Delegate, or Resident Commissioner. The 
subsection also modifies rule XVII to clarify conduct 
considered disorderly or disruptive during legislative 
proceedings to ensure that a Member may be referred to the 
Committee on Ethics for behavior impeding in the rights of 
another Member, Delegate, or the Resident Commissioner to 
participate in floor proceedings, including blocking access to 
legislative instruments such as microphones and blocking access 
the well of the House.

Authorization and Oversight Plans

    Subsection (b) amends the current oversight plan 
requirements. The subsection requires each standing committee 
(except the Committees on Appropriations, Ethics, and Rules) to 
adopt an authorization and oversight plan, which must be 
submitted to the Committees on Oversight and Government Reform, 
House Administration, and Appropriations no later than February 
15 of the first session of Congress. The plan must include a 
list of unauthorized programs and agencies within their 
jurisdiction that have received funding in the prior fiscal 
year, or in the case of a permanent authorization, has not 
received a comprehensive review by the committee in the prior 
three Congresses. The subsection requires committees to 
describe each program or agency that is intended to be 
authorized in the current Congress or next Congress, and a 
description of oversight to support reauthorization in the 
current Congress. The subsection also requires recommendations, 
if any, for moving such programs or agencies from mandatory to 
discretionary funding. The subsection also provides that 
committees may make recommendations to consolidate or terminate 
duplicative programs or agencies, or those that are 
inconsistent with the appropriate role of the Federal 
government. Committees may make recommendations for changes to 
existing law to address Federal rules, regulations, statutes, 
and court decisions related to these programs that are 
inconsistent with Congress' Article I authorities. The 
subsection requires the Committee on Oversight and Government 
Reform, after consultation with the Speaker, Majority Leader, 
and the Minority Leader, report the oversight and authorization 
plans to the House by March 31 of the first session of 
Congress.

Amendments to Appropriation Bills.

    Subsection (c) codifies the standing order from the 112th, 
113th, and 114th Congresses prohibiting an amendment to a 
general appropriation bill proposing a net increase in budget 
authority in the bill.

Duplication of Federal Programs

    Subsection (d) codifies the standing order from the 113th 
and 114th Congresses that requires committee reports to include 
a statement on whether any provision of the measure establishes 
or reauthorizes a program of the Federal government known to be 
duplicative of another Federal program. The subsection also 
eliminates unnecessary language regarding the authorization of 
a committee chair to request that the Government Accountability 
Office perform a duplication analysis of any bill or joint 
resolution referred to that committee, and makes technical 
changes.

Recognition of Members

    Subsection (e) eliminates from the rules outdated 
references to physical mobility. This is a clarification to 
address the needs of Members who are physically unable to 
stand.

Convening Outside the Hall of the House.

    Subsection (f) conforms the standing rules with current 
practice regarding convening outside the Hall of the House.

Temporary Presiding Authority Clarification.

    Subsection (g) clarifies that the authority of a Speaker 
pro tempore appointed under clause 8(b)(3)(A) of rule I takes 
priority over the Clerk's authority to preserve order and 
decorum pending the election of a new Speaker.

Continuing Litigation Authorities.

    Subsection (h) authorizes the House, the Speaker, a 
committee or chair of a committee to carry forward litigation 
from the previous Congress as the successor in interest in any 
continuing litigation matter in which the House, the Speaker, 
the committee or chair of a committee, respectively, was 
previously authorized to be involved. This subsection 
automatically continues previously authorized litigation 
authority and fully empowers the successor in interest to take 
all steps necessary to carry such litigation forward during the 
new Congress, thereby eliminating the need for a separate 
resolution authorizing the continuation of such litigation as 
in the past.

Clarifying Staff Access to the House Floor.

    Subsection (i) conforms the standing rules to the current 
practice that staff accompanying Members on the floor are not 
required to remain at the desk.

Member Records.

    Subsection (j) adds language to the definition of ``Records 
of the House'' to clarify the ownership of congressional office 
records of a Member, Delegate, or Resident Commissioner, and to 
codify the longstanding custom and practice of the House under 
which such records have been recognized to be the personal 
property of the Member, Delegate, or Resident Commissioner, in 
keeping with the common law. Prior rules of the House drew a 
distinction between the records of House committees and 
officers, on the one hand, and congressional office records of 
Members, Delegates, or the Resident Commissioner, on the other. 
The latter do not belong to the House, because the Rule 
expressly defined House ``records'' to exclude them. See, e.g., 
Rule VII.6, Rules of the U.S. House of Representatives, 114th 
Cong. (2015); Rule XXXVI, Rules of the U.S. House of 
Representatives, 105th Cong. (1997). This subsection adds 
language confirming that congressional office records are the 
personal property of the Member, Delegate, or Resident 
Commissioner who creates, generates, or receives them, in 
accordance with longstanding House custom and prior 
pronouncements. See, e.g., H. Con. Res. 307, 110th Cong. (2008) 
(``[B]y custom [congressional papers of Members, Delegates, and 
Resident Commissioners] are considered the personal property of 
the Member who receives and creates them, and it is therefore 
the Member who is responsible to decide on their ultimate 
disposition . . . .''); H. Rep. No. 99-994, 99th Cong. (1986), 
at 5 (``[I]t is relatively clear that Members' papers have been 
regarded as their personal property. . . .'').

Response to Subpoenas.

    Subsection (k) clarifies and streamlines procedures 
governing notification of, and response to, properly served 
judicial subpoenas and judicial orders directing appearance as 
a witness relating to the official functions of the House or 
compelling the production or disclosure of any document 
relating to the official functions of the House. The subsection 
continues the practice of granting authority to respond to 
subpoenas without the necessity of a House vote, and 
streamlines the notification process to eliminate 
inefficiencies. The recipient of a properly served judicial 
subpoena or order compelling testimony or production of 
documents relating to the official functions of the House must 
promptly notify the Speaker in writing of the receipt of that 
judicial order or subpoena and must determine whether the 
subpoena or order is a proper exercise of the jurisdiction of 
the court and is consistent with the rights and privileges of 
the House. In keeping with current practice, the notification 
to the Speaker must either set forth those determinations (if 
they have already been made at the time of the notification) or 
state that the recipient intends to make those determinations. 
The prior rule's additional reference to determining whether 
the subpoena or order ``is material and relevant'' has been 
omitted as redundant and superfluous, because it is subsumed 
within the requirement to determine whether the subpoena or 
order is consistent with the privileges and rights of the 
House; it would not be consistent with the privileges and 
rights of the House for a Member, Delegate, Resident 
Commissioner, officer, or employee to be compelled to respond 
to a judicial subpoena or order seeking information that is not 
material and relevant to the underlying cause. Accordingly, no 
substantive change is made by the deletion of the ``is material 
and relevant'' determination. The subsection omits the obsolete 
requirements for the Clerk of the House to provide a copy of 
rule VIII to the court and for recipients of judicial subpoenas 
or orders to submit ``certified'' copies of documents when 
production of documents in response to a properly served 
judicial subpoena or order has been determined to be 
appropriate. References to administrative subpoenas relating to 
the official functions of the House have also been deleted, 
because the rule should not be interpreted to suggest that 
compliance with such subpoenas may be mandatory. The subsection 
deletes the truism that notifications received when the House 
is adjourned will be laid before the House upon its 
reconvening.

Requirements for Subcommittees.

    Subsection (l) codifies the exceptions carried in previous 
rules packages to clause 5(d) of rule X to allow the Committee 
on Appropriations up to thirteen subcommittees, the Committees 
on Armed Services, Foreign Affairs, and Oversight and 
Government Reform up to seven subcommittees, and the Committee 
on Transportation and Infrastructure up to six subcommittees.

Committee Hearings.

    Subsection (m) provides the Committee on Homeland Security 
with authority to close hearings for an additional 5 
consecutive days when considering sensitive matters that 
require an executive session.

Referrals to the Court of Claims.

    Subsection (n) conforms the standing rules with the current 
practice that measures making a referral to the Court of Claims 
are referred to the private calendar.

Contents of Committee Reports Showing Changes to Existing Law.

    Subsection (o) modifies language adopted in the 114th 
Congress to address an unintended consequence that required a 
committee report or accompanying document to portray 
duplicative prints. This subsection continues to require that a 
Ramseyer print show the entire text of each section of statute 
that is proposed to be repealed and a comparative print of each 
amendment to the entire text of a section of statute the bill 
or joint resolution proposes to make. The subsection also 
clarifies existing practice that appropriate typographical 
devices be used for both repealed text and comparative prints.

Authority to Postpone Record Votes on Certain Motions.

    Subsection (p) adds motions to recommit and motions to 
concur to the list of postponable questions under clause 8 of 
rule XX.

Conforming Guidelines for Five-Minute Voting.

    Subsection (q) clarifies that the Speaker's ability to 
reduce the time for a vote pursuant to clause 9(b) or 9(c) of 
rule XX is subject to the same guidelines as the reduction of 
the time for a vote pursuant to clause 8(c)(2) of rule XX.

Electronic Availability.

    Subsection (r) modifies and codifies a standing order from 
the 112th, 113th, and 114th Congresses by designating the 
electronic document repository operated by the Clerk of the 
House for the purposes of electronic availability rules.

Comparative Prints for Bills or Joint Resolution Considered on Floor.

    Subsection (s) provides that by December 31, 2017, each 
bill, joint resolution, or amendment in the nature of a 
substitute shall have an easily searchable electronic 
comparative print that shows how the proposed legislation will 
change current law, showing by appropriate typographical 
devices the omissions and insertions proposed. The subsection 
also seeks to enhance transparency on changes made to a measure 
after it has been reported by a committee.

Appointments of Chair.

    Subsection (t) allows Delegates and the Resident 
Commissioner to serve as chair of the Committee of the Whole.

Holman Rule

    Subsection (a) provides a new standing order for the first 
session of the 115th Congress based on the ``Holman Rule,'' 
most of which was removed from the standing rules in 1983. This 
standing order functions as an exception to clause 2 of rule 
XXI to allow provisions changing law in certain limited 
circumstances. Under this order, a provision in a general 
appropriation bill or an amendment thereto may contain 
legislation to retrench expenditures by (1) reducing amounts of 
money in the bill, (2) reducing the number or salaries of 
Federal employees, or (3) reducing the compensation of any 
person paid by the Treasury. To qualify for treatment under 
this order, an amendment must be offered after the reading of 
the bill and must comply with all applicable rules of the 
House, such as the germaneness rule. The purpose of this 
provision is to see if the reinstatement of the Holman rule 
will provide Members with additional tools to reduce spending 
during consideration of the regular general appropriation 
bills.

Staff Deposition Authority.

    Subsection (b) carries forward and modifies provisions from 
the 114th Congress to provide the Permanent Select Committee on 
Intelligence and each standing committee of the 115th Congress 
(except for the Committees on Rules and House Administration) 
the authority to order the taking of a deposition by a member 
or committee counsel of such committee. The authority provided 
under this subsection extends for the entirety of the 115th 
Congress. Depositions taken under this authority are subject to 
regulations issued by the chair of the Committee on Rules and 
printed in the Congressional Record. The subsection modifies 
the member attendance requirement, which applies unless (1) the 
witness waives the requirement or (2) the committee authorizes 
the taking of a specified deposition without the presence of a 
member during a specified period and the deposition occurs on a 
day that the House is not in session. The latter authority 
enables a committee to authorize the taking of one or more such 
depositions of one or more specified witnesses at any point 
over the course of a specified period of days, such as a 
district work period.

Independent Payment Advisory Board.

    Subsection (c) carries forward a provision from the 113th 
and 114th Congresses that turns off a provision contained in 
the Affordable Care Act, which limits the ability of the House 
to determine the method of consideration for a recommendation 
from the Independent Payment Advisory Board or to repeal the 
provision in its entirety.

Providing for Transparency with Respect to Memorials Submitted Pursuant 
        to Article V of the Constitution of the United States.

    Subsection (d) carries forward and modifies provisions from 
the 114th Congress that clarify the procedures of the House 
regarding the receipt of Article V memorials from the States by 
directing the Clerk to make each memorial, designated by the 
chair of the Committee on the Judiciary, electronically 
available, organized by State of origin and year of receipt, 
and indicate whether the memorial was designated as an 
application or recession. In carrying out this subsection, it 
is expected that the chair of the Committee on the Judiciary 
will be solely charged with determining whether a memorial 
purports to be an application of the legislature of a state 
calling for a constitutional convention or recession of prior 
applications. The Clerk's role will be entirely administrative. 
The chair of the Committee on the Judiciary will only designate 
memorials from state legislatures (and not petitions from 
individuals or other parties), as it is only state legislatures 
that are contemplated under Article V of the Constitution. In 
submitting each memorial to the Clerk, the chair of the 
Committee on the Judiciary will include a transmission letter 
that indicates it has been designated under this subsection of 
House Resolution 5. The Clerk will make publicly available the 
memorial and the transmission letter from the chair. Ancillary 
documentation from the state or other parties is not expected 
to be publicized. The chair of the Committee on the Judiciary 
is also permitted to designate memorials from Congresses prior 
to the 114th Congress to be made publicly available under the 
same procedure.

Spending Reduction Amendments in Appropriations Bills.

    Subsection (e) modifies and carries forward the prohibition 
from the 112th, 113th, and 114th Congresses against 
consideration of a general appropriation bill that does not 
include a ``spending reduction account.'' The subsection 
updates the definition of a spending reduction account to state 
a recitation of the amount by which an applicable allocation of 
new budget authority under section 302(b) (Appropriations 
subcommittee allocations) of the Congressional Budget Act of 
1974 exceeds the amount of new budget authority proposed by the 
bill, or if no such allocation is in effect, $0.

Point of Order Against Motion to Rise and Report.

    Subsection (f) carries forward from the 113th and 114th 
Congresses the requirement that prevents the Committee of the 
Whole from rising to report a bill to the House that exceeds an 
applicable allocation of new budget authority under section 
302(b) as estimated by the Committee on the Budget and 
continues a point of order.

Limitation on Advance Appropriations.

    Subsection (g) provides limits against a fiscal year 2017 
general appropriation bill or measure continuing appropriations 
from making advanced appropriations in fiscal year 2018. The 
subsection provides a limited number of standard exceptions 
which provide advanced appropriations only for fiscal year 
2018.

Point of Order Against Increasing Direct Spending.

    Subsection (h) establishes a point of order against 
consideration of a bill or joint resolution reported by a 
committee (other than the Committee on Appropriations) or an 
amendment thereto, or a conference report thereon, which has 
the net effect of increasing direct spending in excess of $5 
billion for any of the four consecutive ten fiscal year periods 
beginning with the first fiscal year that is 10 fiscal years 
after the current fiscal year. The subsection also provides 
exemptions for measures repealing or reforming the Patient 
Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Health Care and 
Education Affordability Reconciliation Act of 2010, and 
measures where the chair of the Committee on the Budget made an 
adjustment to the allocation levels or limits contained in the 
most recently adopted budget resolution.

Disclosure of Directed Rule Makings.

    Subsection (i) carries forward and modifies the requirement 
that committee reports on bills or joint resolutions include a 
list of directed rule makings required by the measure or a 
statement that the measure contains no directed rule makings. 
The subsection carries forward the definition of ``directed 
rule making'' to include those rule makings specifically 
directed to be completed by a provision in the legislation, but 
does not include a grant of discretionary rule making 
authority. The prior standing order only required an estimate 
of the number of direct rule makings.

Exercise Facilities for Former Members.

    Subsection (j) continues the prohibition on access to any 
exercise facility that is made available exclusively to 
Members, former Members, officers, and former officers of the 
House and their spouses to any former Member, former officer, 
or spouse who is a lobbyist registered under the Lobbying 
Disclosure Act of 1995.

Numbering of Bills.

    Subsection (k) reserves the first 10 numbers for bills 
(H.R. 1 through H.R. 10) for assignment by the Speaker and the 
second 10 numbers (H.R. 11 through H.R. 20) for assignment by 
the Minority Leader.

Inclusion of U.S. Code Citations for Proposed Repeals and Amendments.

    Subsection (l) continues to add, to the maximum extent 
practicable, a requirement for parallel citations for 
amendatory instructions to Public Laws and Statutes at Large 
that are not classified in the U.S. Code.

Broadening Availability of Legislative Documents in Machine-Readable 
        Formats.

    Subsection (m) continues to instruct the appropriate 
officers and committees to continue to advance government 
transparency by taking further steps to publish documents of 
the House in machine-readable formats.

Congressional Member Organization Transparency Reform.

    Subsection (n) carries forward the provisions from the 
114th Congress to allow participating Members to enter into 
agreements with eligible Congressional Member Organizations for 
the purpose of payment of salaries and expenses. The Committee 
on House Administration is required to promulgate regulations, 
consistent with current law, to carry out this subsection.

Social Security Solvency.

    Subsection (o) carries forward from the 114th Congress a 
point of order against legislation that would reduce the 
actuarial balance of the Federal Old-Age and Survivors 
Insurance Trust Fund, but provides an exemption to the point of 
order if a measure improves the overall financial health of the 
combined Social Security Trust Funds. This subsection would 
protect the Old-Age and Survivors Insurance (OASI) Trust Fund 
from diversion of its funds to finance a broken Disability 
Insurance system.

Subcommittees.

    Subsection (p) waives clause 5(d) of rule X to allow the 
Committee on Agriculture up to six subcommittees, which is 
consistent with authorities in the 114th Congress.

Treatment of Conveyances of Federal Land.

    Subsection (q) provides that any provision in a bill, joint 
resolution, amendment, or conference report requiring or 
authorizing a conveyance of federal land to a State, local 
government, or tribal entity, shall not be considered as 
providing new budget authority, decreasing revenues, increasing 
mandatory spending, or increasing outlays.

House Democracy Partnership.

    Subsection (a) reauthorizes the House Democracy Assistance 
Commission, now known as the House Democracy Partnership.

Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission.

    Subsection (b) reauthorizes the Tom Lantos Human Rights 
Commission.

Office of Congressional Ethics.

    Subsection (c) reauthorizes the Office of Congressional 
Ethics (OCE) and clarifies that term limits do not apply to 
members of the OCE. The subsection reaffirms that a person 
subject to a review by the Office of Congressional Ethics has a 
right to be represented by counsel, and establishes that 
invoking such right is not to be held as a presumption of 
guilt. The subsection modifies the language to require 
consultation prior to the appointment of members rather than 
concurrence. The subsection also prohibits the Office of 
Congressional Ethics from taking action that would deny a 
person any rights or protections provided under the 
Constitution of the United States of America.

Reading of the Constitution.

    Subsection (a) allows the Speaker to recognize Members for 
the reading of the Constitution on any legislative day through 
January 13, 2017.

Consideration of Midnight Rules Relief Act of 2017.

    Subsection (b) provides for the consideration of the 
Midnight Rules Relief Act of 2017 under a closed rule.

                     III. COMMITTEE OVERSIGHT PLAN

    Pursuant to H. Res. 5 of the 115th Congress, the Committee 
on Rules is no longer required to provide a Committee Oversight 
Plan.


               IV. COMMITTEE JURISDICTION AND ACTIVITIES


                            A. Introduction

    The jurisdictional mandate of the Committee on Rules is set 
forth in clause 1(o) of rule X as follows:
    (o) Committee on Rules.
    (1) Rules and joint rules (other than those relating to the 
Code of Official Conduct) and order of business of the House.
    (2) Recesses and final adjournments of Congress.
    The special oversight function of the Committee is outlined 
in clause 3(j) of rule X as follows:
    (j) The Committee on Rules shall review and study on a 
continuing basis the congressional budget process, and the 
committee shall report its findings and recommendations to the 
House from time to time.
    The jurisdictional mandate of the Committee for the 
purposes of this survey of activities is broken down into two 
subcategories: original jurisdiction matters and special rules 
(order of business resolutions). In practice, these subgroups 
are intertwined in a manner that greatly affects the way in 
which the House conducts its business. Original jurisdiction 
matters include all measures pertaining to the rules of the 
House, the budget process, and joint rules. These measures are 
either referred directly to the Committee by the Speaker or 
originate in the Committee itself. They not only pertain to 
changes in House procedure, but also cover the Committee's 
power to establish select committees, authorize certain 
investigations, provide enforcement procedures for the budget 
process, and to establish congressional procedures for 
considering certain executive branch proposals.
    The other subgroup of the Committee's jurisdictional 
mandate, referred to as order of business resolutions or 
``special rules,'' is used by the Committee to direct the 
manner in which a bill or resolution will be considered by the 
House. ``Special rules,'' in the form of House resolutions, 
tailor the time allotted for debate and the process by which a 
bill can be amended. This is done to allow the House to 
consider the subject matter in a way that best suits the bill's 
individual issues and/or controversies. These rules may also 
contain waivers of specific House rules or provisions of the 
Congressional Budget Act. It is sometimes necessary to waive 
the rules of the House in order to allow the chamber to 
consider all the facets of the particular issue or to 
facilitate resolving differences with the Senate. Special rules 
also allow the House to consider measures according to the 
majority leadership's legislative scheduling priorities rather 
than in the numerical order in which they were reported.
    During the 115th Congress, the Committee held 122 days of 
hearings pursuant to the 161 written requests received from 
committee chairs seeking rules. These formal requests do not 
reflect additional requests of an emergency nature made in 
person by the chairs of the various legislative committees. The 
Committee reported 143 special orders providing for the 
consideration of 198 bills and resolutions and 14 Senate 
amendments.
    The Committee granted no open rules, no modified open 
rules, 84 structured rules, and 106 closed rules for the 
consideration of bills and resolutions. In summary, of the 143 
special orders reported by the Committee on Rules, the House 
adopted 139, amended 0, tabled 3, and rejected none.
    At the close of the 115th Congress, no Rules Committee 
matters remained on the House Calendar. The Committee on Rules 
reported no original jurisdiction measures. The Subcommittee on 
Legislative and Budget Process held no hearings during the 
Congress, and the Subcommittee on Rules and Organization of the 
House held two.

                       B. Special Orders or Rules


                            1. rule requests

    The process of considering requests for special orders or 
``rules'' usually begins when the Committee on Rules receives a 
letter from a committee requesting that it hold a hearing and 
consider a rule for a particular measure. The letter is signed 
by the full committee chair and most often makes a specific 
request for the type of rule desired by the committee. In some 
cases, the emergency nature of legislation does not allow 
adequate time for a formal request to be registered. In these 
cases, the requests are traditionally made in person by the 
chair of the committee with jurisdiction. Once a hearing has 
been scheduled, the Committee on Rules allows any House Member 
who has an interest in testifying to do so. Under normal 
circumstances, and pursuant to Committee rules, printed copies 
of the legislation and accompanying committee report or 
conference report are provided to the Committee members at 
least 24 hours in advance of the meeting.
    The Committee gives written notice to its members and 
notifies the pertinent committee of the scheduled hearing date 
at least 48 hours prior to the commencement of the hearing, 
unless an emergency situation exists. If Budget Act violations 
are present, the Budget Committee Chair often advises the 
Committee on Rules whether the Budget Committee objects to or 
supports the granting of specific waivers. The position of the 
Budget Committee on these matters is merely advisory in nature; 
the Committee on Rules has sole jurisdiction over waivers of 
the Budget Act, subject to House approval of the special rule 
containing such waivers.

                              2. hearings

    The Rules Committee Chair controls the order in which 
witnesses appear and also initiates the questioning. Typically, 
the chair of the committee of jurisdiction or a designee 
requesting the rule makes a short statement. The chair is 
followed by the ranking minority member. Sometimes the 
subcommittee chair and subcommittee ranking minority member 
appear on behalf of their full committee counterparts on the 
rule request. It is often the case that Members wishing to 
testify in favor of or in opposition to a bill, an amendment, 
or type of procedure may do so as part of a panel of witnesses.
    In many cases, the components of the proposed special order 
form the basis for the dialogue between substantive committee 
leaders asking for the rule and the Rules Committee members. 
More often than not, the questioning escalates into discussions 
about the merits of the bill itself. If the legislation is 
particularly wide-ranging or controversial, Representatives who 
do not sit on the relevant legislative committee seek to 
testify. (Except in the most unusual circumstances, only House 
Members are allowed to testify during a rule request hearing). 
Questioning of each witness takes place under the five-minute 
rule until each Committee member has had an opportunity to 
question the witness. Questioning is rather informal. The chair 
rarely enforces the five-minute rule, and Committee members 
yield to one another to allow their colleagues to make a 
specific point or follow up on a line of questioning.
    A quorum, which exists when at least seven Rules Committee 
members of the 13 are in attendance, must be present before a 
recommendation on a rule can be ordered reported, postponed, or 
tabled.
    After the Committee votes to approve a rule, the chair and 
ranking minority member each assign one of their members to 
manage the rule on the floor. The majority manager's name 
appears on the rule and report, and that Member usually files 
the rule from the House floor, at which time the resolution and 
report are assigned a number.
    Any member may ask for a record or a division vote. In the 
past, most decisions of the Committee were made by voice vote, 
but in the last several Congresses the number of record votes 
demanded has increased. For the entire 100th Congress there 
were 18 roll call votes demanded; in the 101st Congress there 
were 26; in the 102nd there were 193; in the 103rd there were 
533; in the 104th there were 327; in the 105th there were 104; 
in the 106th there were 119; in the 107th there were 176; in 
the 108th there were 326; and in the 109th there were 254; in 
the 110th there were 620; in the 111th there were 517; in the 
112th there were 366; in the 113th there were 213; and in the 
114th were 221. This Congress, 287 recorded votes were 
requested.
    Once a special rule has been reported, the Majority 
Leader--working closely with the Speaker, the Rules Committee 
chair, and the substantive committee chair--decides upon an 
appropriate date and time for the consideration of the rule on 
the floor. Rules can be considered on the same day they are 
reported, if the House agrees to consideration of the rule by a 
two-thirds vote. After a one-day layover, rules may be 
considered at any time without being subject to a question of 
consideration. The Committee may occasionally report a rule 
waiving this requirement with respect to another rule.

                       3. special orders or rules


 a. Background

    Table 1 in the Appendix categorizes all special rules 
granted by the Committee. These special rules are broken down 
into 19 different categories dealing with all stages of the 
legislative process in the House.
    The Rules Committee has granted special rules that provided 
for specified amendment and debate structures, which assist 
floor managers in managing the schedule. The Committee has also 
granted special rules for the consideration of legislation that 
resolved differences among, and responded to, the legislative 
actions of committees. Some of these rules also addressed 
House-Senate relations. The explanations of these types of 
special rules and their methods of categorization are outlined 
below.

b. Categories of Rules Granted with Amendment Structures

    In categorizing special rules that specified an amendment 
structure, this report focuses only on those rules that both 
provided for the initial consideration of bills, joint 
resolutions, or budget resolutions, and which provided for an 
amending process. Therefore, rules providing for general debate 
only, stopping short of consideration of the measure for 
amendment, or providing for consideration of a conference 
report (which are otherwise privileged and, under regular order 
are non amendable) are not included in these categories. The 
amendment structure categories are as follows: (1) open rules, 
(2) modified open rules, (3) structured rules, and (4) closed 
rules.
        (1) Open Rules. Under an open rule, any Member may 
offer an amendment that complies with the standing rules of the 
House and the Budget Act. The rule itself places no 
restrictions or prohibitions on amendments and provides an 
equal opportunity for all Members to offer amendments.
        (2) Modified Open Rules (Time cap on consideration of 
amendments/Required amendment preprinting in the Congressional 
Record). This type of rule permits the offering of only those 
amendments preprinted in the Congressional Record and/or places 
an overall time cap for the consideration of amendments. A 
modified open rule with a preprinting requirement could require 
that amendments be printed in the Congressional Record by a 
specific date (in some cases the amendment must be printed 
before its consideration); in other cases, printing must occur 
before the consideration of the bill. In most cases these rules 
do not prohibit second degree amendments. Requiring that 
amendments be printed in advance of their consideration affords 
Members a better idea of the range of issues to be debated and 
voted on during consideration of the bill. This can 
particularly be true of bills or joint resolutions involving 
complex matters.
        (3) Structured Rules. Under a structured rule, the 
Rules Committee limits the amendments that may be offered to 
only those amendments designated in the special rule or in the 
Rules Committee report to accompany the rule, or which 
precludes amendments to a particular portion of a bill, even 
though the rest of the bill may be completely open to 
amendment. In the case of a structured rule, the Chair will 
announce through an one-minute speech on the floor of the House 
and/or through a ``Dear Colleague'' letter the intention of the 
Committee to hold a hearing on a measure and to review all 
amendments. The Chair requests that Members provide the Rules 
Committee with copies of their proposed amendments in advance 
of the Committee meeting. In some instances, the amendments 
made in order represent all of the amendments submitted to the 
Committee.
        (4) Closed Rules. This type of rule is one under which 
no amendments may be offered from the House floor. Accordant 
with the rules of the House, however, the Rules Committee is 
prohibited from reporting a special rule providing for 
consideration of a bill or joint resolution that denies the 
minority the right to offer amendatory instructions in a motion 
to recommit if offered by the minority leader or a designee.

c. Categories of Rules Granted with Certain Floor Management Tools

    Special rules are often utilized to assist the Majority 
Leader in setting the Floor schedule of the House, as well as 
to equip committee chairmen and ranking minority members with 
the special procedural tools necessary to efficiently manage 
the floor consideration of a bill. These categories include (1) 
expedited procedure rules, (2) suspension day rules, and (3) 
chair's en bloc authority rules.
        (1) Expedited Procedure Rules. This type of rule waives 
clause 6(a) of rule XIII (requiring a two-thirds vote to 
consider a special rule on the same day it is reported from the 
Rules Committee) against certain resolutions reported from the 
Rules Committee. These rules generally specify the measures or 
object to which the waiver applies, as well as a defined time 
period for its application. These rules are commonly referred 
to as ``same-day'' rules. In some cases the rule will not 
specify the object of the waiver. These rules are referred to 
as ``blanket same-day'' rules.
        (2) Suspension Day Rules. Under House rule XV, it is in 
order on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday of each week, and 
during the last six days of a session, for the Speaker to 
entertain motions to suspend the rules and pass legislation. 
This category of rule authorizes the Speaker to entertain 
motions to suspend the rules on days other than Mondays, 
Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Generally, these rules specify the 
object that is to be considered under suspension of the rules. 
In some cases the object may not be identified, but the rule 
may provide that the Speaker or their designee shall consult 
with the Minority Leader or their designee on the object of any 
suspension considered under the rule.
        (3) Chair's En Bloc Authority Rules. This category of 
rule authorizes the chair of a committee (usually the majority 
floor manager of the bill under consideration) or his designee 
to offer amendments en bloc consisting of amendments made in 
order by the special rule that have not earlier been disposed 
of. In most cases, the rule also allows germane modifications 
to any such amendments included in the en bloc amendment only 
by unanimous consent. With the exception of rules on 
appropriations bills (which permit en bloc amendments that do 
not increase budget authority or outlays in the bill), a Member 
seeking to offer amendments en bloc must obtain unanimous 
consent if they amend portions of the bill not yet open to 
amendment, unless a special rule authorizes several amendments 
to be offered and considered as a group. There is usually a 
specified time for divided debate on the en bloc amendment and 
a prohibition on amendments to and demands for a division of 
the question on the en bloc amendment. Generally, the original 
sponsor of the amendment must agree to having the amendment 
considered en bloc, and these rules generally provide that the 
original proponent of an amendment included in such an en bloc 
amendment may insert a statement in the Congressional Record 
immediately before the disposition of the en bloc amendment. 
Such a rule enables the floor manager to maximize efficiency 
and consensus while minimizing duplicative floor time and 
consideration.

d. Categories of Rules Granted to Resolve Differences Among and 
        Responding to the Legislative Actions of Committees

    As the nexus of the legislative process in the House, the 
Rules Committee is often the institutional mechanism used to 
reconcile differences in legislative recommendations among 
multiple committees. Two often used, and often misunderstood, 
special rule features utilized to achieve these goals are (1) 
self-executing rules and (2) original text rules. (1) Self-
Executing Rules. This type of rule provides that, upon the 
adoption of the special rule, the text of a measure is modified 
or amended in some specified manner. Therefore, the House's 
adoption of the rule itself has the effect of amending the 
underlying measure. Occasionally, a self-executing rule may 
also provide for the adoption of other unrelated measures or 
actions, such as adopting another simple resolution, bill, 
joint resolution or conference report. Self-executing rules may 
be utilized by the Rules Committee for a variety of reasons, 
including but not limited to: the correction of rule or Budget 
Act violations; providing for the adoption of the committee-
recommended amendment; the reconciling of multiple committee 
legislative recommendations; the elimination of procedural 
votes; the separation of policy issues; or, the complete 
redrafting of the legislation.
        (2) Original Text Rules. When a committee reports a 
measure, it will often favorably report the measure with a 
recommendation that an amendment or amendments be adopted by 
the full House. These amendments reflect the collegial action 
of the committee on that measure. This type of rule generally 
provides that the committee-recommended amendment be considered 
by the House and become the base text for the purpose of 
further amendment to the bill. This is often done to 
acknowledge the actions of the committee at the beginning of 
the consideration of a bill, and also to simplify the amendment 
process.

e. Categories of Rules Granted Dealing with House-Senate Relations

    While resolving differences with the Senate often involves 
privileged motions in the House, the Rules Committee is often 
called upon to expedite such procedural situations or to 
address unique procedural circumstances. The categories of such 
special rules are (1) Senate hook-up rules, (2) motion to go to 
conference rules, (3) disposition of Senate amendments rules, 
(4) conference report rules, and (5) engrossment of multiple 
measures rules.
        (1) Senate Hook-up Rules. The Rules of the House 
provide for three methods of getting to conference with the 
Senate: (1) agreeing to a motion to go to conference by 
unanimous consent; (2) obtaining a special rule from the Rules 
Committee; or (3) receiving specific authorization from each 
committee that received an initial referral of and reported the 
bill (clause 1 of rule XX). Most often chairmen obtain 
conference authority from their committee at the time a bill is 
ordered reported. Most special rules allowing for a Senate 
hook-up provide that after passage of a House bill, it shall be 
in order to take a specific Senate bill from the Speaker's 
table, consider it in the House, and to move to strike all 
after the enacting clause and insert the text of the House bill 
as passed by the House. These special rules further provide 
that if the motion is adopted and the Senate bill, as amended, 
is passed, then it shall be in order to move that the House 
insist on its amendment and request a conference with the 
Senate. These hook-up provisions can either be included in the 
original rule providing for consideration of the House bill or 
in a separate special rule.
        (2) Disposition of Senate Amendment Rules. This type of 
rule generally provides for the consideration of a Senate 
amendment or amendments in the House and for a motion to concur 
in the Senate amendment with or without an amendment. These 
rules also usually specify a period of time for debate on the 
motion equally divided and controlled by the chair and ranking 
minority member of the committee of jurisdiction, as well as 
any necessary waivers against consideration of either the 
Senate amendment or against the motion to concur.
        (3) Motion to go to Conference Rules. These special 
rules are those separate rules that provide for the motion to 
go to conference with the Senate, by either disagreeing with 
the Senate position and requesting a conference or insisting on 
the House position and agreeing to a conference.
        (4) Conference Report Rules. Under the standing rules 
of the House, conference reports are privileged matters. Unless 
the requirement is waived, House rules require that a 
conference report be available for at least three calendar days 
(excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and legal holidays) before it 
can be called up for consideration. After that time, because it 
is privileged, it can be called up at any time without a rule 
from the Rules Committee. If, however, a conference report is 
in violation of a rule of the House or some extraordinary 
procedure for consideration of the report is desired, a special 
rule may be necessary for the conference report to be 
considered. Consequently, conference report rules generally 
provide waivers of all points of order against consideration of 
the conference report and provide that the conference report be 
considered as read, which effectively waives the three-day 
availability requirement.
    It should be noted that points of order against a 
conference report lie against its consideration, not against 
individual provisions contained within the report. A conference 
report represents the collective agreement of the House and the 
Senate. Changing individual components of the agreement 
violates the sanctity of the agreement itself. Consequently, 
agreeing to a conference report is an all-or-nothing question. 
This is also the reason why, even as privileged matters, 
conference reports are not amendable on the Floor of the House.
        (5) Engrossment of Multiple Measures Rules. These types 
of special rules generally provide for separate consideration 
and final passage votes on multiple bills, generally relating 
to a similar issue. The rule then instructs the House Clerk to 
engross the individually passed bills into one bill before 
transmitting them to the Senate for consideration.
        (6) Instructing the Clerk Regarding the Transmittal of 
Papers. These types of special rules instruct the Clerk to 
withhold the transmittal of papers until the Clerk is notified 
of certain actions taken by the other body. This is done to 
address timing issues related to the passage or consideration 
of measures by the Senate.

f. Categories of Rules Granted With Certain Housekeeping Tools

    Special rules are often utilized to assist House Leadership 
and committees with housekeeping elements to ensure the smooth 
running of House floor operations generally during constituent 
work breaks.
        (1) Providing procedures for Pro Forma sessions. During 
periods when the House is unable to adjourn pursuant to a 
concurrent resolution, the Rules Committee will sometimes 
provide the chair with additional authority to manage required 
pro forma sessions. This authority may include allowing the 
chair to adjourn on his or her own, to toll periods for 
consideration of certain privileged matters, and other similar 
tools to provide for the orderly conduct of pro forma sessions 
during district work periods.
        (2) Report Filing Authority. When a committee favorably 
reports a measure, it must file an accompanying report 
describing the purpose and scope of the legislation and the 
reasons for recommended approval. This tool allows for the 
filing of these reports from specific committees on days when 
the House is not otherwise in session.

                4. floor consideration of a special rule

    When the time comes to call up a special rule, the majority 
member who filed the rule (a privileged House resolution), or 
another majority member of the Rules Committee designated by 
the chair, is recognized by the Speaker. That member stands at 
the majority committee table on the House Floor. Once 
recognized, the member States:
    ``Mr. Speaker, by direction of the Committee on Rules, I 
call up House Resolution ______, and ask for its immediate 
consideration.''
    (Any member of the Committee on Rules may be recognized to 
call up a rule that has been on the House Calendar for at least 
seven legislative days, and the Speaker is required to 
recognize the Rules Committee member as rules are privileged 
items, so long as the member has given one day's notice of an 
intent to seek recognition for that purpose.)
    Once the Clerk has read the resolution, the Speaker 
recognizes the majority Rules Committee member handling the 
rule for one hour. The majority floor manager then customarily 
yields 30 minutes to a minority counterpart for the purposes of 
debate only. The length of debate on the rule varies according 
to the complexity of the rule and the degree of controversy 
over the bill.
    Since a rule is considered in the House under the hour 
rule, no amendments are in order unless the majority floor 
manager offers an amendment or yields to another Member for 
that purpose. At the conclusion of debate on the rule, the 
floor manager moves the previous question. If no objection is 
heard, the House proceeds to vote on the rule. If objection is 
heard, a vote occurs on the previous question. If the previous 
question is rejected, however, a Member who opposed the 
previous question (usually the Rules Committee minority floor 
manager) is recognized. That Member then controls one hour of 
debate time. The Member controlling the time may offer an 
amendment to the rule and then move the previous question on 
the amendment and on the rule when debate has concluded. Once 
the rule is adopted (with or without amendments), the 
legislation it concerns is eligible for consideration under the 
terms of the rule.

                 5. rules rejected, tabled, or pending

    During the 115th Congress, the Committee on Rules reported 
143 rules. The House adopted 139 of these rules, and tabled 
three. At the close of the Congress, 1 rule remained pending on 
the House Calendar, and no were rules rejected.

 a. Rules Rejected by the House During the 115th Congress

    No rules were rejected by the House during the 115th 
Congress.

b. Rules Tabled by the House During the 115th Congress

    Three rules were tabled by the House during the 115th 
Congress: H. Res. 254, providing for further consideration of 
the bill (H.R. 1628) to provide for reconciliation pursuant to 
title II of the concurrent resolution on the budget for fiscal 
year 2017, H. Res. 952, providing for consideration of the bill 
(H.R. 4760) to amend the immigration laws and the homeland 
security laws, and for other purposes, and H. Res. 1027, 
providing for consideration of the conference report to 
accompany the bill (H.R. 5515) to authorize appropriations for 
fiscal year 2019 for military activities of the Department of 
Defense, for military construction, and for defense activities 
of the Department of Energy, to prescribe military personnel 
strengths for such fiscal year, and for other purposes.

c. Rules Pending at the Close of the 115th Congress

    One rule was pending at the close of the 115th Congress: H. 
Res. 1185, providing for consideration of the bill (S. 2322) to 
amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to define the 
term natural cheese.

            6. explanation of waivers of all points of order

    The Committee on Rules customarily provides waivers of all 
points of order when constructing special rules for the 
consideration of measures. This is commonly referred to as a 
``blanket waiver'' or ``prophylactic waiver'' because in most 
cases there are no applicable points of order against the 
measure. Just because a special rule includes a blanket waiver 
does not mean that points of order lie against any of the 
measures made in order or provisions contained in those 
measures; rather, blanket waivers ensure the immediate 
consideration of the underlying measure by providing the Chair 
with the ability to easily dispense with dilatory or specious 
points of order by asserting that, ``pursuant to the previous 
order of the House, all points of order are waived.''
    Also, as part of the Committee's role as scheduler for the 
House, it is the Committee's responsibility to ensure that when 
a majority of the House votes in favor of considering a measure 
notwithstanding any technical or substantive violations of the 
rules, a point of order would not prevent that measure's 
consideration.
    It is important to note that any specific waivers contained 
in a waiver of all points of order are required under clause 
7(g) of rule XIII to be specified in the Rules Committee report 
accompanying the resolution and are also compiled in this 
report.


                       7. waivers of house rules

    The following compilation identifies the Rules of the House 
that were waived in specific resolutions and the legislation 
that required the waiver. There is also an indication whether 
the rule was waived against the bill (B), original text (OT), 
amendments (A), the number of which is indicated in [ ], a 
motion (M), a conference report (CR), or provisions (P); items 
accompanied by an asterisk (*) denote measures that the waiver 
with which they were granted in the committee report 
accompanying the resolution was not applied; items accompanied 
by two asterisks (**) denote measures that the waiver with 
which they were granted in the committee report accompanying 
the resolution was not necessary due to the House subsequently 
adopting an amendment(s) that cured the need for such waiver.

                    8. waivers of budget enforcement

    The following compilation identifies the sections of the 
Budget Act that were waived in specific resolutions and the 
legislation that required the waiver. There is also an 
indication whether the rule was waived against the bill (B), 
the original text (OT), amendments (A), a motion (M), a 
conference report (CR), or provisions (P); items accompanied by 
two asterisks (**) denote measures that the waiver with which 
they were granted in the committee report accompanying the 
resolution was not necessary due to the House subsequently 
adopting an amendment(s) that cured the need for such waiver.

  A. Activities of the Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget Process


                      1. jurisdiction and purpose

    The Committee on Rules first established the Subcommittee 
on Legislative Process in 1979 at the beginning of the 96th 
Congress; it has been reestablished at the start of each 
Congress since. In early 1995, the Committee changed the name 
of this body to the Subcommittee on Legislative and Budget 
Process to better reflect its jurisdiction.
    In the 115th Congress, the Subcommittee retained its 
traditional makeup of seven Members, with the majority holding 
five of the spots, and the minority holding the remaining two. 
Chaired by Mr. Woodall, the Subcommittee also claims Mr. Byrne, 
Mr. Newhouse, Mr. Buck, Mr. Hastings of Florida (Ranking 
Member), and Mr. Polis.
    Committee rule 5(a)(1)(A) assigns to the Subcommittee the 
general responsibility for measures or matters related to 
relations between the Congress and the Executive Branch. The 
legislation falling within the panel's jurisdiction includes 
resolutions and bills, with the primary statute within the 
Subcommittee's jurisdiction being the Congressional Budget and 
Impoundment Control Act of 1974 (Public Law 93-344 as amended). 
The Subcommittee also continues to exercise jurisdiction over 
budget process-related provisions found in Part C of the 
Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 
(Public Law 99-177 as amended by Public Laws 100-119, 101-508 
and 103-44) and the Budget Enforcement Act of 1990 (Title XIII 
of the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1993 (Public Law 
103- 44). Legislation is referred to the Subcommittee at the 
discretion of the Chair of the Committee on Rules.

the 96th Congress as the Subcommittee on Rules of the House. At 
the beginning of the 104th Congress, its name was changed to 
the Subcommittee on Rules and Organization of the House to more 
accurately reflect the Subcommittee's mission and jurisdiction. 
In the 107th Congress, the Subcommittee's name was modified to 
the Subcommittee on Technology and the House, and at the 
beginning of the 109th Congress, the name reverted back to the 
Subcommittee on Rules and Organization of the House. The 
Subcommittee's jurisdiction remains unchanged and it maintains 
its previous membership of seven Representatives, with five 
serving from the majority and two from the minority. Chaired by 
Mr. Collins, the Subcommittee roster also includes Mr. Collins, 
Mr. Byrne, Mr. Newhouse, Ms. Cheney, Mr. Sessions, Mr. McGovern 
(Ranking Member) and a vacancy.
    Committee rule 5(a)(1)(B) assigns to the Subcommittee the 
general responsibility for measures or matters related to 
process and procedures of the House, relations between the two 
Houses of Congress, relations between Congress and the 
Judiciary, and internal operations of the House. The 
Subcommittee is primarily responsible for the continuing 
examination of the committee structure and jurisdictional 
issues of all House committees. It remains committed to a 
continuing study of the organization and operations of the 
House. Legislation is referred to the Subcommittee at the 
discretion of the Chair of the Committee on Rules.

                           IX. MINORITY VIEWS

    During the 115th Congress, Republicans on the House Rules 
Committee continued their troubling trend of abandoning regular 
order, shutting down debate, and rigging the process to advance 
a highly partisan agenda.
    Speaker Ryan presided over the most closed Congress in our 
history. At every turn, Republicans on this Committee voted in 
lockstep to shut out the voices of Members from across the 
political spectrum, rejecting efforts by Democrats to create a 
more open and accommodating process.

                    CONSEQUENCES OF A CLOSED PROCESS

    House Republicans issued a record-breaking 103 closed rules 
during the 115th Congress. More often than not, the Rules 
Committee sent to the floor legislation under a completely 
closed process that blocked Republicans and Democrats from 
offering their ideas to improve legislation and address the 
needs of their constituents.
    Bad process leads to bad policy, and this highly 
restrictive process has prevented debate and progress on a 
number of issues that the American people care about. During 
the 115th Congress, Republican Leadership used the Rules 
Committee to block hundreds of thoughtful amendments offered by 
Members to create jobs, improve our economy, reduce gun 
violence in our communities, protect our environment, make 
college more affordable and improve the health of our fellow 
Americans.
    Earlier this year, Rules Committee Democrats issued a 
report entitled ``Shutdown,'' highlighting some of the 2,600 
amendments blocked by the Republican-led Rules Committee this 
Congress.
    While we recognize that there may be times when a 
structured or closed process is appropriate, there is simply no 
justification for this level of restrictiveness.

 THE ABANDONMENT OF REGULAR ORDER AND A DELIBERATIVE COMMITTEE PROCESS

    The Republican majority in the 115th Congress circumvented 
the committee process to pass highly partisan legislation, 
silencing the voices of Members serving on those Committees. 
Members serve on Committees for a reason--they want the 
opportunity to thoughtfully consider topics important to their 
districts, and they want to deliberate the most pressing issues 
of our time. In crafting and considering legislation, Members 
should have the opportunity to hear from subject matter experts 
who can provide important feedback on the measures Congress 
takes up.
    But all too often, legislation was brought to the Rules 
Committee without so much as a hearing or mark-up in the 
committee of jurisdiction. That should be the exception, not 
the rule.
    In the 115th Congress, nearly 80 percent of the legislation 
reported out of the Rules Committee did not follow regular 
order, meaning it did not receive a hearing and mark-up in the 
committee of jurisdiction. A third of the bills we considered 
had neither a hearing nor a mark-up.
    This terrible process wasn't just used to put forward 
Republican messaging bills, which were all too common in the 
115th Congress, but it was used by this majority to enact major 
pieces of legislation impacting hundreds of millions of 
Americans and our economy.
    For example, at the start of this Congress, House 
Republicans used the Rules Committee to jam through the House 
their repeal of the Affordable Care Act, which put the health 
insurance coverage for millions of Americans at risk. The 
legislative record for this repeal effort stands in stark 
contrast to the robust process House Democrats used to write 
the Affordable Care Act, which included nearly 200 hours of 
committee hearings and markups and the consideration of over 
200 amendments.
    Republicans doubled-down on this flawed process to enact 
their tax scam, which showered the wealthiest in this country 
with a massive tax break at the expense of working American 
families. In both instances, these massive pieces of 
legislation were negotiated in secret backrooms of the Capitol, 
without any Democratic input. In the case of the health care 
repeal bill, Republicans proceeded through the Rules Committee 
and to the floor without an analysis from CBO and with little 
time for Members to review the various giveaways, bribes, and 
gimmicks to win votes from conservative and moderate holdouts.
    The Rules Committee should not be the first to consider 
major pieces of legislation, except on the rare occasion.

 PROMOTING AN AGENDA TO PROTECT THE WEALTHY AND WELL-CONNECTED AT THE 
                     EXPENSE OF ORDINARY AMERICANS

    The Republican giveaway to the richest Americans didn't end 
with the tax scam and the attempt at repealing the Affordable 
Care Act. Republicans in the Rules Committee voted in lockstep 
to send to the floor a continual stream of legislation designed 
to appease their donor base. Our Committee agenda was filled 
with bills to rollback consumer protections, deregulate wall 
street, weaken environmental safeguards, and erode access to 
affordable health care.
    While doing so, this majority ignored the calls from every 
corner of our country demanding action to create jobs, address 
rising prescription drug costs, protect DREAMers, and tackle 
climate change.
    We look forward to a Democratic majority that addresses 
these issues and once again puts Committees back to work, 
empowers the voices of Members, and restores Congress for the 
people.
