HARRISBURG, April 26 – State Rep. Steve Samuelson was joined by nine House colleagues at a virtual news conference today to discuss a package of House rules reform legislation designed to support procedural rules that provide a more transparent and collaborative process. Samuelson said these proposed changes to House rules will bring fairness and balance to the legislative process, improve the working of House committees, and ensure that bills with broad bipartisan support get a vote. “We are committed to openness and transparency,” Samuelson said. “These rules changes would increase opportunities for public input on legislation, reduce partisan gridlock and ensure that the House and its committees stay focused on the needs of our constituents. We need to eliminate legislative roadblocks to allow for more open debate.” House Democratic members participating in the news conference were Samuelson, D-Northampton; and Reps. Joe Webster, D-Montgomery; Bob Freeman, D-Northampton; Tim Briggs, D-Montgomery; Kevin Boyle, D-Phila.; Jennifer O’Mara, D-Delaware; Mike Sturla, D-Lancaster; Elizabeth Fielder, D-Phila.; Pam DeLissio, D-Phila.; and Mike Zabel, D-Delaware. The rules reform legislation: H.R. 30 – Bipartisan Support Demands an Open Vote, sponsored by Samuelson. This amendment would guarantee that any proposed legislation sponsored by more than the 102 members required to pass a bill in the House get an up-or-down vote in the Read more
