We are more than 45 minutes into “debate” over a minor change in a House Rule.
Video explains it – but to reiterate, the change ONLY REQUIRES THE MEMBER who makes the motion to STAY IN THE CHAMBER at his/her desk while the bill is read.
Members can STILL delay the process by asking the “bill to be read across the desk” – but you would no longer be able to use that dilatory tactic and get to leave the chamber.
Wasting time discussing wasting time in Columbia. Go figure.
