the Budget

Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act of 2015

                     The Committee granted, by record vote of 9-2, a closed rule for H.R. 3762.  The rule provides two hours of debate equally divided and controlled by the chair and ranking minority member of the Committee on the Budget or their respective designees.  The rule waives all points of order against consideration of the bill.  The rule provides that the amendment printed in the Rules Committee report shall be considered as adopted and the bill, as amended, shall be considered as read.  The rule waives all points of order against provisions in the bill, as amended.  The rule provides one motion to recommit with or without instructions.

            In section 2, the rule waives clause 6(a) of rule XIII (requiring a two-thirds vote to consider a rule on the same day it is reported from the Rules Committee) against any resolution reported from the Rules Committee through the legislative day of October 23, 2015.

            Finally, in section 3, the rule provides that it shall be in order at any time on the legislative day of October 22, 2015, or October 23, 2015 for the Speaker to entertain motions that the House suspend the rules and that the Speaker or his designee shall consult with the Minority Leader or her designee on the designation of any matter for consideration pursuant to this section.
