Turn on CSPAN

Oh Boy it is interesting in the House again today.

Republicans have introduced amendment after amendment to stymie the inevitable passage of the Gulf Coast Hurricane Housing Recovery Act of 2007. Each have been voted down. Now Rep. Jindal has just introduced another odious amendment a motion to recommit limiting who could receive rental aid.

Video to come

UPDATE: The motion to recommit passed.

Here’s what thismeans and what did occur…

A motion to recommit with instructions is a last opportunity to amend the bill.

The instructions to the committee direct changes to the text of the
bill. If adopted, the chairman of the named committee immediately
stands and reports the change back to the House. The next step is the
House vote on final passage of the bill.

Here is video of first Jindal, then Franks…(loads slow, will have a YouTube version soon)


UPDATE: More on Jindal’s motion at BayouBuzz.com (h/t Ashley)

  1. I’m sorry, Scout. Representative who is trying to sabotage the Hurricane Housing Recovery Act of 2007?
    That’s what I thought.
