Pelosi mulls House rules change to thwart GOP amendments

Posted: 03.01.19 11:50 AM

Speaker Nancy Pelosi indicated Thursday that Democrats could change House rules in a way that would make it harder for Republicans to make last-minute tweaks to legislation, a move that the GOP warned would amount to a suppression of their rights as the minority party. Pelosi, D-Calif., said a bipartisan panel reviewing how the House operates may also examine a floor procedure known as the “motion to recommit.” The MTR, as it is known, effectively gives the minority party a chance to amend legislation just before it's about to be passed. Normally, those amendments are easily blocked by the majority. But Republicans have scored two victories so far with MTR measures by luring in Democrats from swing districts, and Democratic leaders aren't happy about it.
