The House debated for an hour a rule concerning two bills that call into question presidential constitutional authority to enforce laws:

· H.R. 4138, the Executive Needs to Faithfully Observe and Respect Congressional Enactments of the Law (ENFORCE the Law) Act is authored by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC). It would allow the House or Senate by a majority vote to authorize a lawsuit against the White House for not enforcing federal law.
