Following A Debate
Resolution 1620 (read here) makes provision for consideration of the bill (H.R. 4785) to amend the miscellaneous rural development provisions of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 to authorize the Secretary of Agriculture to make loans to certain entities that will use the funds to make loans to consumers to implement energy efficiency measures involving structural improvements and investments in cost-effective, commercial off-the-shelf technologies to reduce home energy use.
The debate concerns the Special Rule which the Rules Committee has proposed. Details of the rule's background can be found on the Rules Committee website. The report on the rule can be accessed here.
In future posts I will look at the procedural steps involved. If there are questions you would like answered - please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
