Expedited Rescission Bills in the 111th and 112th Congresses: Comparisons and Issues

Expedited Rescission Bills in the 111th and 112th Congresses: Comparisons and Issues

Date: May 3, 2011
Creator: McMurtry, Virginia A.
Description: Expedited rescission bills focus on procedural changes in Congress and typically contain a detailed schedule to ensure immediate introduction of a measure to approve the President's rescission request, prompt reporting by committee or automatic discharge, special limits on floor amendments and debate, and so on. Under expedited rescission, congressional approval is still necessary to rescind the funding, but the fast-track procedures may help to encourage an up-or down vote on the President's proposal.
