“After watching their Energy-Water spending bill go down in flames on the House floor last month, Republican leaders plan to bring another spending bill to the floor this week under a process designed to foreclose surprise amendments… The use of a so-called structured amendment rule, while not unprecedented, abandons the open-ended process that GOP leaders had hoped to adopt as part of a return to ‘regular order’ for appropriations bills. That hope was dashed just before the Memorial Day recess, when a surprise amendment related to gay and transgender rights led to the sinking of the Energy-Water bill (HR 5055). The amendment…to prevent federal contractors from discriminating against gay and transgender employees prompted 130 Republicans to vote against their own party's bill, which was rejected on a 112-305 vote.”
