ABSTRACT

Suspension of the Rules: House Practice in the 115th Congress (2017-2018) [May 19, 2020]   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Document: "Suspension of the rules is the most commonly used procedure to call up measures on the floor of the House of Representatives. As the name suggests, the procedure allows the House to suspend its standing and statutory rules in order to consider broadly supported legislation in an expedited manner. More specifically, the House temporarily sets aside its rules that govern the raising and consideration of measures and assumes a new set of constraints particular to the suspension procedure."
