Rep Mark Formby (R), Chair of the new House Rules Committee, signaled this morning in an interview on the Paul Gallo show that there would be a minor tweaking of rules to align the new majority with the two major committees in the House (Ways & Means and Appropriations). There are some antiquated seniority rules mandating participation by seniority on those committees that will need to be adjusted, but Formby mentioned that otherwise seniority would be undistrubed.

Formby mentioned that a bill to be considered by the House could be introduced as soon as today.
