(c) During the regular session in the even-numbered year, before the Committee on Ways and Means reports a bill containing net increases or decreases in expenditures as compared to general fund expenditures in the current fiscal biennium estimated by the most recent state budget forecast, the Committee may adopt a budget resolution.If adopted, the resolution must account for the net changes in expenditures.The resolution may also (1) set limits for changes in net expenditures for each budget category represented by the major finance and revenue bills identified in paragraph (e), and (2) set limits for expenditures from funds other than the general fund.

ANNOUNCEMENT BY THE SPEAKER

 

In the interest of maintaining order and decorum in the House Chamber and providing an atmosphere of respect and courtesy for members who have the floor, and in accordance with House Rule 7.01, paragraph 2, the following policies will be enforced during the 2019-2020 legislative session:

 

"Points of Privilege" should not be used to make statements that definitely are not points of privilege. Questions relating to members of the body in their representative capacity are called "Points of Personal Privilege" and should relate to charges against a memberís rights, reputation and conduct, pursuant to section 222 paragraph 1 of Masonís


Journal of the House - 1st Day - Tuesday, January 8, 2019 - Top of Page 30


 

Manual of Legislative Procedure. Questions relating to the entire body are called "Points of Privilege of the House" and should relate to charges against the membership of the entire body. Political or congratulatory speeches should not be made under the guise of being a point of privilege.Members should not use this procedure to create a debate on a subject not properly before the body. The appropriate way to recognize events of achievement occurring within one's legislative district are by reserving a room in the State Capitol for a celebration, and inviting fellow members to that room for the celebration under the order of business, "Announcements."

 

It is not proper procedure to start a debate on a subject not before the body by asking a member to yield to a question under the order of business "Announcements." Section 100 of Mason's Manual states in paragraph 2:"Debate must always have relation to some definite question that is under consideration by the body.There must be a motion or question proposed to the body by the presiding officer for the purpose of ascertaining the will of the body."

 

House Rule 2.40 provides that certain persons are admitted by Rule to the House Chamber, and other guests "may be issued a permit by the Speaker good for the day, but that person must be seated near the Speaker's rostrum, and must not engage in conversation that disturbs the business of the House."It further provides that, "[f]rom one hour before the time the House is scheduled to convene until one hour after the House adjourns for the day, the retiring room is reserved for the exclusive use of the members and employees of the House." This Rule will be enforced during the orders of business relating to consideration of legislation, such as "Calendar for the Day," "Fiscal Calendar," and "Conference Committee Reports."

 

Mason's section 121 paragraph 3 states:"A member who resorts to persistent irrelevance or to persistent repetition after the attention of the house has been called to the matter may be directed to discontinue the speech by the presiding officer."

 

There is no point of order unless a member cites the House Rule, Joint Rule, or section of Mason's being violated.House Rule 5.04 provides that we rely on Mason's Manual of Legislative Procedure if it is not inconsistent with House Rules, Joint Rules, or established custom and usage of the House.

 

Mason's section 124 paragraph 1 states:"In debate a member must confine remarks to the question before the house, and avoid personalities." The same section, paragraph 3, states:"It is not the person but the measure that is the subject of debate, and it is not allowable to arraign the motives of a member, but the nature or consequences of a measure may be condemned in strong terms."

 

Alcohol is not to be consumed in the State Office Building in the areas under the jurisdiction of the Minnesota House of Representatives.

 

Members and staff shall wear appropriate business attire while on the House floor.Business casual is appropriate.

 

By observing the above Rules and policies, we will have more focus on the people's business on the floor of the House. Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated.
