The committee heard testimony for the second day on H.R. 1, the Civil Rights Act of 1991. H.R. 1, introduced to the House and supported by the Democrats, would overturn several Supreme Court decisions that made it harder for women, minorities, and the handicapped to recover for damages in cases of discrimination. President Bush had previously made it clear that he would veto any civil rights bill containing language concerning quotas. House debate on the bill was scheduled for the following week. The committee sought to determine a rule concerning the debate on the bill in the House. The committee voted to place a “king of the hill” rule on the bill, a rule under which the last version of the bill to be passed by the House will be the final version of the bill. close
