Comparing the Old and New House Rules


Earlier today I wished for a redlined version of the House Rules so we could see how the proposed 112th Congress rules stack up against the 111th Congress' rules. In what was a fairly unpleasant process, I've scraped the PDF for the 111th Congress, reformatted it, and entered by hand all of the proposed revisions. (No guarantees of perfection here; but it should be pretty accurate.)

For all those who've been pining away for the 111th rules in Word format, here you go. And here's the redline. And the PDF is below. Enjoy!
