Read Debt Limit Agreement Bill H.R. 3746
House Session - November 16, 1993

The U.S. House of Representatives, on this day, took up four bills under suspension of the rules, meaning these are non-controversial bills and are expected to easily pass the House. The House then took up the Mining Reform Bill, which would require hard rock mining companies to pay an 8% royalty to the government for ore taken from federal lands. The measure would also require the mining companies to return the lands to their original state.
