Read GOP Bill to Raise the Debt Limit
House Session - October 23, 1989

While under suspension of the rules the House debated five pieces of legislation. The yeas and nays were demanded on two of these measures. These were H.Res. 257 which denounced restrictive broadcasting by the European Community, and H.R. 2095 which amends the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act. The House recessed and passed both of these bills later that afternoon.
