From the Summary: "At the beginning of each Congress, the House of Representatives adopts rules to govern its proceedings. Traditionally, the House does this by readopting the rules of the previous Congress along with changes that will apply in the new Congress. On January 4, 2021, the House considered and adopted a resolution (H.Res. 8) providing for the rules of the House for the 117th Congress by a vote of 217-206. H.Res. 8 reinstitutes the standing rules of the 116th Congress with certain amendments and adopts other procedural and organizational matters that are not incorporated into the standing rules directly but are designated as Separate Orders. This report addresses several of these provisions that affect the congressional budget process and the consideration of budgetary legislation. It provides information on one change to the standing rules that might affect the consideration of reconciliation legislation in the House of Representatives. It also addresses two provisions of H.Res. 8 included under Separate Orders. [...] Finally, this report includes information on a provision of H.Res. 8 extending the life of the House Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress."
