Members' Day Hearing on Proposed Rules Changes for the 117th Congress
As the Committee on Rules prepares for the 117th Congress, I write to announce our Members Day hearing at 1:00 PM EDT on Thursday, October 1, 2020, to hear from Members on their proposed changes to the standing rules of the House. Pursuant to House Resolution 965 and the covered period designated by the Speaker on Wednesday, May 20, 2020, the proceeding will be conducted virtually and streamed live on rules.house.gov.
This hearing will provide the Committee an opportunity to receive ideas from Members about possible improvements to the rules of the House for the 117th Congress. I welcome your input and want to ensure that all Members are provided an opportunity to participate in this process.
Any Member wishing to testify virtually at the hearing should complete this form by 5pm on Tuesday, September 29, 2020. Please make one submission per idea. Instructions on how to participate will be provided separately. Please note that staff must be on the House network, either physically or remotely via virtual private network (VPN), in order to access the online submission form. If you have any questions, please contact the Committee at (202) 225-9091.
Thank you very much and we look forward to hearing your ideas!
James P. McGovern
