    Provide a closed rule for House floor consideration of a reconciliation bill (HR 3762) that would repeal pieces of the health care law and defund Planned Parenthood for one year.

    The rule would provide two hours of debate equally divided and controlled by the chairman and ranking member of the Budget Committee or their designees. It would provide that a Price, R-Ga., amendment that would strike a provision to repeal the health care law’s Medicare cost-cutting board and adjust language targeting Planned Parenthood be considered as adopted.

    The rule also would waive all points of order against consideration of the bill and provisions in the bill as amended. It would provide one motion to recommit.

    In addition, the rule would waive the clause of the House rule that requires a two-thirds vote to consider a rule the same day it’s reported from the Rules Committee for any rule reported through the legislative day of Oct. 23.

    Any time on the legislative days of Oct. 22 and 23, it also would allow for the speaker to entertain motions that the House suspend the rules and that the speaker or his designee consult with the minority leader or her designee on the designation of any matter for such consideration.

    Ordered reported favorably to the full House 9-2.
