At this hour, Senate Republicans are pushing to suspend the rules so it would make it easier for them to introduce “Strike All” amendments to bills with little notification. Strike alls are amendments that replace the language of the bill with an entirely new bill. Usually, members are given enough warning so that they can look over the what is often extensive new language before they vote in committee. But, this would mean that a striker could be introduced moments before a meeting, giving members no time to review it. It goes without saying that this means that it would be even harder, if not impossible, for the public to weigh in.
So, exactly what shenanigans are they looking to pull here?
UPDATE: My understanding is that the motion to suspend the rules has been withdrawn. Still makes me wonder what exactly they were up to.
