Is the way that the Senate passed so quickly the gun safety bill something that you could reference in teaching this course? Seems like that could be an illustrative example since my understanding was the Senate used a House bill as a vehicle?
Senior Fellow Josh Huder
44:29
Absolutely. That's a perfect example. I can discuss it quickly at the start of our next talk.

considering the current action on NDAA, if a subcommittee mark does not it into the full committee mark up does the subcommittee mark still matter?

If there is a reporting requirement in the Senate report, but that requirement is not in the conference report/joint explanatory statement, would an agency still need to provide?

Alexis Paci

If someone from the minority party wants to be recognized on the floor, but doesn't think the speaker will recognize them, is there any work done behind the scenes to ensure the Speaker calls on them?
Pete Talley
02:52:42
if the speaker doesn't have to recognize the minority party then why do we always see them recognize the minority to do things like recommit or adjourn?
Rowan Sockwell
03:05:08
This means only 218 votes are needed? Or truly unanimous?

Are unanimous consent agreements socialized in advance? as in, do Senators know something will go up fo UC (e.g., Senate confirmed a raft of military noms late Thurs night…did members know that would happen in advance?)
