Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Legislative Reorganization Act of 1970 (Pub.L. 91-510) was an act of the United States Congress to "improve the operation of the legislative branch of the Federal Government, and for other purposes." The act focused mainly on the rules that governed congressional committee procedures, decreasing the power of the chair and empowering minority members, and on making House and Senate processes more transparent. Provisions: Required that reports on a measure be made available 3 days before a floor vote. Established procedures for recorded votes in the House Committee of the Whole and led to the installation of electronic voting machines. Provided procedures to combat non-germane amendments in conference reports and compromises that exceeded the scope of the disagreement between House and Senate versions of the bill.show more
