SPECIAL ORDERS 

On motion of Mr. Crowley, by unanimous consent, Ordered, That when the House adjourns 
on Thursday, March 26, 2009, it adjourn to meet at 12:30 p.m. on Monday, March 
30, 2009, for Morning-Hour Debate. (Agreed to Mar. 26, 2009.) 

The Speaker's policy with regard to special-order speeches announced on February 11, 
1994, as clarified and reiterated by subsequent Speakers, will continue to apply 
in the 111th Congress, with the following modifications. 

The Chair may recognize Members for special-order speeches for up to 4 hours 
after the conclusion of 5-minute special-order speeches. Such speeches may not extend 
beyond the 4-hour limit without the permission of the Chair, which may be granted 
only with advance consultation between the leaderships and notification to the House. 
However, the Chair will not recognize for any special-order speeches beyond midnight. 

The Chair will first recognize Members for 5-minute special-order speeches, alter- 
nating initially and subsequently between the parties regardless of the date the 
order was granted by the House. The Chair will then recognize Members for longer 
special-order speeches. A Member recognized for a 5-minute special-order speech 
may not be recognized for a longer special-order speech. The 4-hour limitation will 
be divided between the majority and minority parties. Each party is entitled to 
reserve its first hour for respective leaderships or their designees. Recognition for 
periods longer than 5 minutes also will alternate initially and subsequently between 
the parties each day. 

The allocation of time within each party's 2-hour period (or shorter period if prorated 
to end by midnight) will be determined by a list submitted to the Chair by the 
respective leaderships. Members may not sign up with their leadership for any spe- 
cial-order speeches earlier than 1 weekprior to the special order. Additional guidelines 
may be established for such sign-ups by the respective leaderships. 

Pursuant to clause 2(a) of rule V, the television cameras will not pan the Chamber, 
but a "crawl" indicating the conduct of morning-hour debate or that the House has 
completed its legislative business and is proceeding with special-order speeches will 
appear on the screen. The Chair may announce other adaptations during this period. 

The continuation of this format for recognition by the Speaker is without prejudice 
to the Speaker's ultimate power of recognition under clause 2 of rule XVII should 
circumstances warrant. 

That during the first session of the 111th Congress: (1) on legislative days of Monday 
when the House convenes pursuant to House Resolution 10 the House shall convene 
90 minutes earlier than the time otherwise established by that resolution solely 
for the purpose of conducting morning-hour debate; and (2) on legislative days of 
Tuesday when the House convenes pursuant to House Resolution 10: (A) before 
May 18, 2009, the House shall convene for morning-hour debate 90 minutes earlier 
than the time otherwise established by that resolution; and (B) after May 18, 2009, 
the House shall convene for morning-hour debate one hour earlier than the time 
otherwise established by that resolution; and (3) on legislative days of Monday or 
Tuesday when the House convenes for morning-hour debate pursuant to an order 
other than House Resolution 10, the House shall resume its session 90 minutes 
after the time otherwise established by that order; (4) the time for morning-hour 
debate shall be limited to the 30 minutes allocated to each party, except that on 
Tuesdays after May 18, 2009, the time shall be limited to 25 minutes allocated 
to each party and may not continue beyond 10 minutes before the hour appointed 
for the resumption of the session of the House; and (5) the form of proceeding 
to Morning-Hour Debate shall be as follows: (a) the prayer by the Chaplain, the 
approval of the Journal, and the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag shall be postponed 
until resumption of the session of the House; (b) initial and subsequent recognitions 
for debate shall alternate between the parties; (c) recognition shall be conferred 
by the Speaker only pursuant to lists submitted by the Majority leader and by 
the Minority leader; (d) no Member may address the House for longer than 5 minutes 
except the Majority leader, the Minority leader, or the Minority whip; and (e) fol- 
lowing morning-hour debate, the Chair shall declare a recess pursuant to clause 
12(a) of rule I until the time appointed for the resumption of the session of the 
House.

"(3) A Private Calendar as provided in clause 5 of rule XV, to which shall be referred all private bills and

Rule XV, clause 5: 

"5. (a) On the first Tuesday of a month, the Speaker shall direct the Clerk to call the bills and resolutions 
on the Private Calendar after disposal of such business on the Speaker's table as requires reference only. If 
two or more Members, Delegates, or the Resident Commissioner object to the consideration of a bill or 
resolution so called, it shall be recommitted to the committee that reported it. No other business shall be in 
order before completion of the call of the Private Calendar on this day unless two-thirds of the Members 
voting, a quorum being present, agree to a motion that the House dispense with the call. 

"(b)(1) On the third Tuesday of month, after the disposal of such business on the Speaker's table as 
requires reference only, the Speaker may direct the Clerk to call the bills and resolutions on the Private 
Calendar. Preference shall be given to omnibus bills containing the texts of bills or resolutions that have 
previously been objected to on a call of the Private Calendar. If two or more Members, Delegates, or the 
Resident Commissioner object to the consideration of a bill or resolution so called (other than on omnibus bill), 
it shall be recommitted to the committee that reported it. Two-thirds of the Members voting, a quorum being 
present, may adopt a motion that the House dispense with the call on this day. 

"(2) Omnibus bills shall be read for amendment by paragraph. No amendment shall be in order except to 
strike or to reduce amounts of money or to provide limitations. An item or matter stricken from an omnibus 
bill may not thereafter during the same session of Congress be included in an omnibus bill. Upon passage 
such an omnibus bill shall be resolved into the several bills and resolutions of which it is composed. The 
several bills and resolutions, with any amendments adopted by the House, shall be engrossed, when necessary, 
and otherwise considered as passed severally by the House as distinct bills and resolutions. 

"(c) The Speaker may not entertain a reservation of the right to object to the consideration of a bill or 
resolution under this clause. A bill or resolution considered under this clause shall be considered in the House 
as in the Committee of the Whole. A motion to dispense with the call of the Private Calendar under this 
clause shall be privileged. Debate on such a motion shall be limited to five minutes in support and five 
minutes in opposition."

CALENDAR OF MOTIONS TO DISCHARGE COMMITTEES 



Rule XV, clause 2: 

"2. (a) Motions to discharge committees shall be in order on the second and fourth Mondays of a month. 

"(b)(1) A Member may present to the Clerk a motion in writing to discharge — 

"(A) a committee from consideration of a public bill or public resolution that has been referred to it for 30 
legislative days; or 

"(B) the Committee on Rules from consideration of a resolution that has been referred to it for seven 
legislative days and that proposes a special order of business for the consideration of a public bill or public 
resolution that has been reported by a standing committee or has been referred to a standing committee for 30 
legislative days. 

"(2) Only one motion may be presented for a bill or resolution. A Member may not file a motion to 
discharge the Committee on Rules from consideration of a resolution providing for the consideration of more 
than one public bill or public resolution or admitting or effecting a nongermane amendment to a public bill or 
public resolution. 

"(c) A motion presented under paragraph (b) shall be placed in the custody of the Clerk, who shall arrange 
a convenient place for the signatures of Members. A signature may be withdrawn by a Member in writing at 
any time before a motion is entered on the Journal. The Clerk shall make signatures a matter of public record, 
causing the names of the Members who have signed a discharge motion during a week to be published in a 
portion of the Congressional Record designated for that purpose on the last legislative day of the week and 
making cumulative lists of such names available each day for public inspection in an appropriate office of the 
House. The Clerk shall devise a means for making such lists available to offices of the House and to the public 
in electronic form. When a majority of the total membership of the House shall have signed the motion, it 
shall be entered on the Journal, printed with the signatures thereto in the Record, and referred to the 
Calendar of Motions to Discharge Committees. 

"(d)(1) On the second and fourth Mondays of a month (except during the last six days of a session of 
Congress), immediately after the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag, a motion to discharge that has been on the 
calendar for at least seven legislative days shall be privileged if called up by a Member whose signature 
appears thereon. When such a motion is called up, the House shall proceed to its consideration under this 
paragraph without intervening motion except one motion to adjourn. Privileged motions to discharge shall 
have precedence in the order of their entry on the Journal. 

"(2) When a motion to discharge is called up, the bill or resolution to which it relates shall be read by title 
only. The motion is debatable for 20 minutes, one-half in favor of the motion and one-half in opposition 
thereto. 

"(e)(1) If a motion prevails to discharge the Committee on Rules from consideration of a resolution, the 
House shall immediately consider the resolution, pending which the Speaker may entertain one motion that 
the House adjourn. After the result of such a motion to adjourn is announced, the Speaker may not entertain 
any other dilatory motion until the resolution has been disposed of. If the resolution is adopted, the House 
shall immediately proceed to its execution. 

"(2) If a motion prevails to discharge a standing committee from consideration of a public bill or public 
resolution, a motion that the House proceed to the immediate consideration of such bill or resolution shall be 
privileged if offered by a Member whose signature appeared on the motion to discharge. The motion to proceed 
is not debatable. If the motion to proceed is adopted, the bill or resolution shall be considered immediately 
under the general rules of the House. If unfinished before adjournment of the day on which it is called up, the 
bill or resolution shall remain the unfinished business until it is disposed of. If the motion to proceed is 
rejected, the bill or resolution shall be referred to the appropriate calendar, where it shall have the same 
status as if the committee from which it was discharged had duly reported it to the House. 

"(f)(1) When a motion to discharge originated under this clause has once been acted on by the House, it 
shall not be in order to entertain during the same session of Congress— 

"(A) a motion to discharge a committee from consideration of that bill or resolution or of any other bill or 
resolution that, by relating in substance to or dealing with the same subject matter, is substantially the same; 
or 

"(B) a motion to discharge the Committee on Rules from consideration of a resolution providing a special
