HOUSE ENDS UNNECESSARILY LONG DEBATE ON UNNECESSARY REGULATIONs

After much fanfare over John Boehner and Eric Cantor's reforms of how the House of Representatives conducts its business, the Republican leadership really shined today when the lower chamber finished its nine-and-a-half hour debate on a resolution that would instruct ten House committees to investigate unnecessary regulations. 


After two days of debate, the chamber barely passed the measure, 391-28...a real squeaker. Some Democrats had voiced concerns that the vote was unnecessary, as each committee has the agency to undertake the investigations themselves. All 28 "nay" votes were from Democrats, the rest (142) voted for the bill. [The Hill]
