From The Hill:
GOP leader: All House GOP members to offer amendments at Rules panel
Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas) said Thursday that all House Republicans are planning to go to the Rules Committee in an effort to amend the healthcare reform bill.
The move could significantly delay a final vote on healthcare reform.
During an appearance on C-SPAN’s “Washington Journal” show, Sessions noted that members are allowed to go to the Rules panel to make the case for amendments on the House floor.
The Rules Committee is likely to reject most, if not all, GOP amendments. But the process of every House Republican member trying to make the case for various amendments, if allowed, would be time-consuming.
