7 Guaranteed Bills to Receive House Vote


    7 conservative proposals are certain to get to a House vote because of last week's tense talks over speakership.

    These seven legislations, outlined within the House rules package, were agreed to be voted on the House floor during the 118th Congress by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and the 20 conservatives who voted no on Friday. The seven bills were crucial in opening the door for McCarthy to take the speaker position.

    The House rules package assures that the seven bills receive a vote on the House floor and won't be denied by House leadership.

    If approved in both the House and the Senate, the bills would limit the IRS, unconstitutional immigration, China and abortion. The specifics of the agreed terms are as follows:

    1.) A bill to cancel certain balances that are made accessible for the Internal Revenue Service. 

    2.) A bill that authorizes the Secretary of Homeland Security to suspend the entry of aliens and other individuals.

    3.) A bill that prohibits the secretary of Energy from shipping Petroleum products from Strategic Oil Reserves to China. 

    4.) A bill that amends the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act to require the district attorney and the prosecutors office to submit reports on behalf of the attorney general as well as for other reasons.

    5.) A bill that requires an instant national background check system to inform U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement as well as relevant State and Local police agencies when the information in the system suggests that someone who is either legally or illegally within or in the United States may be attempting to obtain the firearm.

    6.) A bill to ban taxpayer-funded abortions. 

    7.) A bill that amends Title 18 which prohibits any healthcare practitioner from executing the appropriate degree of care for a child who survives an abortion attempt.

    The bill also contains a number of rules that act as a safety net for the House going forward. The rules state that one of the members can make a “motion to vacate” the chair of the speaker; provisions to limit excessive expenditure, tax and debt limit increase, and at least 72 hours between the publication of the bill's text and floor vote and “conservative representation” on important House committees.

    “It's crucial to ensure that members of Rules Committee members are able to reflect the body and reflect the views of the majority of people. This is an integral part of this framework,” Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) said to reporters before the 15th vote. “What we've decided to put in the framework must be subject to accountability. We must remain confident that we're going to be able to carry out the agreements we've made in the framework.”

    Former speaker of the House Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was critical of the rules package because it diminished the ability of the Republican-controlled House to kowtow to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Senate Democrats.

    “What we're seeing is the incredibly shrinking speakership,” she said. “It isn't a good idea for the House of Representatives. It is the house of the people. We must bargain in conjunction with the Senate. We need to engage together with The White House. We have diminished the leadership position in the House of Representatives.”
