The House Rules: 112th vs 111th -- a Redline

by

Before the holiday break, I compared the draft House Rules for the 112th Congress against the House Rules for the 111th Congress. Yesterday, House Republicans released an updated Rules proposal, so I've taken a second look.

Here's a redline of the House Rules as a Word file. A PDF is available below. Please note that the rules changes are only part of the rules package up for a vote today -- there are also orders (resolutions) that will apply during the 112th Congress only, including a reauthorization of the Office of Congressional Ethics.
