Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment (HIRE) Act

The Committee granted, by a non-record vote, a rule providing for the consideration of the Senate amendment to H.R. 2847, the Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment Act (originally making appropriations for the Departments of Commerce and Justice, and Science, and Related Agencies for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2010, and for other purposes).  The rule makes in order a motion offered by the chair of the Committee on Ways and Means that the House concur in the Senate amendment to the House amendment to the Senate amendment with the amendment printed in the Rules Committee report.   The rule waives all points of order against consideration of the motion except those arising under clause 10 of rule XXI.  The rule provides that the Senate amendment and the motion shall be considered as read.  The rule provides one hour of debate on the motion equally divided and controlled by the chair and ranking minority member of the Committee on Ways and Means.
