Members’ Day Hearing on Proposed Rules Changes for the 114th Congress
Before we depart for the August District Work Period, I wanted to inform Members of an important hearing my subcommittee will be holding when we return. The Rules Subcommittee on Rules and Organization of the House will hold a Members’ Day hearing in September on proposed changes to the standing rules of the House.
The purpose of this hearing is to receive input from Members about possible improvements to House Rules for the 114th Congress. Members with ideas should begin working on their proposals during the District Work Period. Although this will not be the only chance for Members to propose changes to the House Rules package in the 114th Congress, the hearing will provide a significant opportunity for Members to have their ideas heard. I welcome your input and encourage you to bring your suggestions before the Subcommittee.
Any Member wishing to testify should submit a request to 114RulesPackage@mail.house.gov by Friday, August 29, 2014. I also ask that you submit a short summary of your proposal and any legislative text that may be available with your request to testify. If you have any questions please contact myself or Patrick Deitz in my office at Patrick.Deitz@mail.house.gov or 225-1002.
