Availability of Legislative Proposals in the House of Representatives (The "Three-Day Rule")

Date: January 10, 2005
Creator: Rybicki, Elizabeth
Description: House rules govern the length of time legislative proposals must be available to Members prior to being considered on the floor.

The House, however, also has several means by which it can choose to waive these availability requirements and call up, debate, and vote on a measure in a single calendar day, even if the text of the measure was not made available prior to consideration.

Changing Senate Rules: The "Constitutional" or "Nuclear" Option

Date: May 26, 2005
Creator: Palmer, Betsy
Description: This report indicates possible attempts to curtail the use of filibusters in the Senate, perhaps in the 109th Congress.

This report presents several possible scenarios that would require one or more of the Senate’s precedents be overturned or interpreted otherwise than in the past.
