READ: $2 Trillion Economic Stimulus Bill
House Session - November 2, 1987

CR, p. H9457-H9462. Scheduled as a pro forma session, Democrats immediately moved to adjourn. That motion failed 12-15. The absence of a quorum was raised which forced a recorded vote. After several procedural motions the sergeant-at-arms was instructed to compel the attendance of absent members. All action on the floor was held up because a quorum was not present and insufficient Representatives were available in the Capitol to produce a quorum. When a quorum was reached the motion to adjourn was immediately agreed to. 1200 ^House convened 1215^Motion to adjourn rejected 1245^Motion rejected to have sergeant-at-arms arrest absent members 1300^Motion to adjourn rejected 1315^Motion passed to have sergeant-at-arms arrest absent members 1540^House adjourned
