1/3/2013--Introduced. Adds Rule XXX (Statutory Limit on Public Debt) to the Rules of the House of Representatives to reinstate the "Gephardt rule," repealed by H.Res. 5 (adopting the Rules of the House for the 112th Congress).
(The Gephardt rule: (1) provided for an automatic engrossment and transmittal to the Senate of a joint resolution changing the public debt limit, upon the adoption of a congressional concurrent budget resolution; and (2) avoided a separate vote in the House on public debt-limit legislation.)
