Special Session Scenario

June 15, 1999

This is a planning scenario for the special session scheduled for June 15, 1999. It is based on assumptions that there will be a Feed Bill and two substantive bills considered and enacted in a session of not more than 2 days; the bills will have been preintroduced; and rules will be established allowing this scenario. This is not official and has no status other than for planning.

Pre-session preparations:

Monday, June 14: Joint Rules will meet at 10:00 a.m. in Room 487 of the Federal Building. House Rules will meet, if necessary, at 1 p.m. in Room B7 of the Federal Building; Senate Rules will meet, if necessary in Room 487 of the Federal Building.

Tuesday, June 15, 1999: the time preceding the opening of the session is reserved for party caucuses, if called. Currently, it is anticipated that the Senate Republicans and House Democrats will caucus.
