S.10: Committee on Rules Report

There is 1 proposed amendment related to this document on which a decision has not been taken.


Resolved, That the 14th day of December, 1886, be set apart, immediately after the reading of the Journal, for the consideration of the bill (S. 10) and the amendment thereto, reported by the Judiciary Committee of the House, entitled ''An act to amend an act to amend section 5352 of the Revised Statutes of the United States, in reference to bigamy, and for other purposes," approved March 22, 1882, and from day to day thereafter, after the reading of the Journal, until their consideration is completed, subject to the consideration of revenue and general appropriation bills.


The Committee on Rules, to which was referred a resolution offered in the House December 7,1886, setting apart Tuesday, the 14th day of December, for the consideration of Senate bill No. 10, has had the same under consideration, and reports back the accompanying resolution as a substitute therefore. The committee is of the opinion that some of the measures reported from the Committee on the Judiciary, and now on the Calendar of the House, are of sufficient importance to justify the House in setting apart a day for their consideration, and therefore recommend the adoption of the substitute, as follows:

Resolved, That next Wednesday, January 12, immediately after reading the Journal, be and is hereby set apart for the consideration of bills and resolutions presented by the Committee on the Judiciary, and if not completed on that day, then that Thursday, January 13, be also set apart for the same purpose.
