Wednesday, House Republicans released the draft of a House rules package for the 112th Congress. The resolution will be voted on the first day of the new Congress, in January.  Transition Chair Greg Walden says it provides a series of reforms to the current rules including: the stipulation that no rules shall be voted upon without bring available on line for at east three calendar days and reforms in the budgeting process that places limitations on long-term spending. In addition, the rules will reinstate a six-year term limits on committee chairs. In a statement released from Congressman Walden, he says: "These new rules put in place the congressional reforms proposed in the Pledge to America. The package makes it easier to address one of the top priorities of the American people: cutting spending." You can review the highlights of the reforms by clicking here.
