The House of Representatives passed a new rules package on Monday which overhauls how it operates by creating additional barriers to congressional spending and by establishing an easier method for passing legislation
The rules package was amended. were discussed until the 11th hour , as part of a plan to gain McCarthy the votes of the position of speaker. In favor of those changes included Roy, Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla. and new congresswoman Anna Paulina Luna, R-Fla.
The recently adopted rules contain a provision that permits House Freedom Caucus members to get 3 of 9 seats in the House Rules Committee, which sets the rules for how bills are introduced on the table and how they may be changed.
The package also contains the return of a "Cut-As-You-Go" policy, which states that the legislation can't be thought of if it increases compulsory spending over a five or 10-year timeframe.
The "CUTGO" policy demands that bills that require new spending to be offset by cuts in other areas of the budget of the federal government - an innovative new way to limit federal spending that is part of the Republican's efforts to end the accumulation of trillions of dollars of annual new debt.
