Members are advised that H.R. 2279 is expected to be considered in the House today, subject to a unanimous consent agreement.
H.Res. 328 - Rule providing for consideration of both H.J.Res. 68 - Authorizing the limited use of the United States Armed Forces in support of the NATO mission in Libya (Rep. Hastings (FL) – Foreign Affairs/Armed Services) and H.R. 2278 – To limit the use of funds appropriated to the Department of Defense for United States Armed Forces in support of North Atlantic Treaty Organization Operation Unified Protector with respect to Libya, unless otherwise specifically authorized by law (Rep. Rooney – Armed Services) (One hour of debate). The Rules committee has recommended a closed Rule that provides for consideration of both H.R. 2278 and H.J.Res. 68.
For H.J.Res. 68, the Rule provides one hour of general debate with 40 minutes equally divided between the Chair and Ranking member of the committee on Foreign Affairs and 20 minutes equally divided between the Chair and Ranking member of the committee on Armed Services. It allows one motion to recommit, with or without instructions. It waives all points of order against the bill.
