Floor Schedule and Procedures
Under a Rule (1 bill):

H.Res. 430 – Authorizing the Committee on the Judiciary to initiate or intervene in judicial proceedings to enforce certain subpoenas and for other purposes (Rep. McGovern – Rules)

This resolution would authorize the House Judiciary Committee to bring legal actions to enforce subpoenas against Attorney General William Barr and former White House Counsel Don McGahn, which require testimony and documents, including the full unredacted Mueller report, key underlying documents, and critical evidence.

Additionally, the resolution makes clear that all committee chairs, when authorized by the Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group, have the ability under the House Rules to bring civil actions on behalf of their committees to enforce their duly authorized subpoenas without the necessity of a full House vote.

Postponed Suspension Vote (1 vote):

  1. H.R. 2609 – DHS Acquisition Review Board Act of 2019 (Rep. Crenshaw – Homeland Security)

This bill amends the Homeland Security Act by codifying the DHS Acquisition Review Board (ARB), as chaired by the Under Secretary for Management (USM). The ARB helps strengthen accountability and uniformity within the Department acquisition review process, by evaluating major acquisition programs before authorizing advancement from one acquisition decision event to another. This legislation was first introduced in the 114th Congress, and reintroduced in the 115th (H.R. 1282, Rep. Garrett) passing the House by voice vote both times.

QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“Learning and innovation go hand in hand. The arrogance of success is to think that what you did yesterday will be sufficient for tomorrow.”
