The Law Making Process
Rules of Debate
In the house the rules committee sets the terms for debate. It puts time limits on the discussion, to speed up action. the senate has fewer rules, and they can speak as long as they wish. One member can speak- holding the floor for hours, delaying a vote until the bills sponsor withdraws the measure. The senate can end a filibuster if three-fifths of the members vote for culture. under this no one may speak for more than one hour.
