H. Con. Res. 71 (115th Congress)
Concurrent Resolution on the Budget for Fiscal Year 2018
TITLE V—BUDGET PROCESS IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
Subtitle B—Other Provisions
SEC. 5207. EXERCISE OF RULEMAKING POWERS.
The House of Representatives adopts the provisions of this title and section 2002—
(1) as an exercise of the rulemaking power of the House of Representatives, and as such they shall be considered as part of the rules of the House of Representatives, and such rules shall supersede other rules only to the extent that they are inconsistent with such other rules; and
(2) with full recognition of the constitutional right of the House of Representatives to change those rules at any time, in the same manner, and to the same extent as is the case of any other rule of the House of Representatives.
H. Con. Res. 71, as Passed by the House
This section was included as section 326 of H. Con. Res. 71 (115th Congress), as it was adopted by the House of Representatives. While the language is included as a matter of course for any statute that changes or effects Congressional rules, it has little, if any, practical effect since the both Chambers of Congress are provided the authority to make their own rules by Article I of the U.S. Constitution.
