In the table of listed amendments, can you clarify the difference between Revised and Made in Order?
Leah Carll
01:06:42
Apologies, I missed how you reached the "reviewing amendments" table. Could you re-address?
Alexis Paci
01:09:05
Yes thank you
Rowan Sockwell
01:15:42
About what percentage of all legislation introduced is then worked on by the Rules Committee? Sounds very time-consuming
Chris Peters
01:16:41
How much influence to minority members have on the Rules cmte? Do they feel “ornamental” or is it still desirable for a minority member despite the lopsided numbers?

Thank you Hugh, this was fantastic.
Leah Carll
01:26:00
Thank you!

very informative. thank you.

The Resources 1-3 documents are images rather than PDFs. Also, the link for "The Unique Nature of the U.S. Senate" directs to a google drive. Could the document link be changed to PDF or PowerPoint? Unable to access.
Senior Fellow Josh Huder
01:36:57
Unfortunately, those images were provided by a speaker on our programs. We don't have the original files though we can try to recreate some of them.
Senior Fellow Josh Huder
01:38:07
Also, James Wallner's slide deck is in PDF format but it's an unusually large file. We're working on a way to switch formats so it is more easily accessible.
Senior Fellow Josh Huder
01:39:51
Is the issue that your computer cannot access google files? I'm able to download it.
Senior Fellow Josh Huder
01:40:05
Yes! Hugh slides will be up momentarily.
Leah Carll
01:40:17
My agency blocks access.
Senior Fellow Josh Huder
01:41:24
Ok. That's not uncommon. Is there another device you can use to download and possibly send the file to your computer?
Erin Patel
02:13:48
We are instructed that sometimes we can say support/do not support, but other times we are only able to provide comments. What determines what is allowed?
USSOCOM Mark
02:15:00
The OMB briefing slides are very helpful. Could we receive a copy of these?
Karen Saxe - Amer Math Soc
02:15:05
Very informative, thank you. Naïve question: What is OMB (LRD) role reviewing comments that come in via Fed register? And, on Exec Orders, etc. Or, are these the portfolio of another WH office?
Don Green
02:15:07
I understand OMB came from under a hiring freeze and now you are about to hire more FTEs. Possibly eliminating JDA Rotations. How do agencies establish permanent JDA Rotations with OMB?
Alice Pennaz she/her
02:16:39
Does OMB have the ability to make suggestions to Congress to amend existing legislation through further legislative action? For example if existing legislation is preventing exec branch from meeting administration goals, could OMB make suggestions? For example, I'm thinking of the Paperwork Reduction Act preventing agencies from engaging with underserved communities in a timely/nimble fashion.

02:16:59
If two agencies disagree on a leg proposal, does OMB prefer to mediate a compromise or have the two Agencies work things out directly?
Don Green
02:17:02
Once OMB assists agencies reconcile views, how does OMB assist with getting those view into legislation?
Alice Pennaz she/her
02:34:58
If expertise on a particular topic doesn't exist within OMB or the executive branch, does OMB engage with folks outside of the government (e.g. academia/private industry)?

VERY useful! Thank you

Being a mathematician, I like this slide!
Senior Fellow Josh Huder

The Senate is "stuffy"
Karen Saxe - Amer Math Soc
04:31:33
I worked for a Senator for a while and engaged in a vote-a-rama which, I am now coming to have a better understanding of why this might be just a Senate beast (right? Not in House?). My real question is—how is it and who decides when there is one? Is it a numerical threshold of # of amendments? Or some other reasoning?
Rowan Sockwell
04:38:53
Could you quickly clarify the difference between form and type here? Thank you!
Alexis Paci
04:47:21
If a Senator objects another Senators request to not read the amendment, can their objection be overruled?
Alice Pennaz she/her
04:51:04
You noted at the beginning of the talk that you didn't see the process breaking down with actions like filling the amendment tree. Could you expand on that? It certainly seems like it stops collaboration on the Senate floor via amendment process.
Alice Pennaz she/her
04:56:30
Thanks James!
