Before legislation is able to be considered on the House floor, agreement must be reached on a rule (which is drafted by the House Rules Committee, an arm of the majority party leadership) that governs the handling of a particular bill on the floor. This vote pertains to a rule for debate on the energy plan which would set time limits for debate, limit the number of amendments considered, and specify a time for the final vote to be held. Progressives opposed the rule because they object to the energy plan as currently written. A sound energy policy, progressives argue, requires investment in renewable energy sources which the current proposal does not provide. Republicans voted unanimously for the rule and it was adopted by a 236-190 margin.
