The U.S. House is scheduled to consider the continuing resolution during the week of February 14, 2011.
This will be the first general appropriations bill likely to be considered by the House under an open process in several years and perhaps the only continuing resolution ever considered that way.
In light of the length of time since the House last considered an appropriations bill under these circumstances, along with recent rule changes and some unique aspects of this legislative vehicle, this document is intended to assist
Members and their staff with questions that could arise as offices consider whether to draft amendments and in what form.
