House Rules and Manual for 109th Congress Now Available

The House Rules and Manual for the 109th Congress is now available from the Government Printing Office on GPO Access:

http://www.gpoaccess.gov/hrm/browse_109.html

From the press release:

"The House Rules and Manual is published by the the House Parliamentarian's Office. This document is formally entitled Constitution, Jefferson's Manual, and Rules of the House of Representatives and contains the fundamental source material for parliamentary procedure used in the House of Representatives, including:
  • the Constitution of the United States;
  • applicable provisions of Jefferson's Manual;
  • rules of the House;
  • provisions of law and resolutions having the force of rules of the House; and
  • pertinent decisions of the Speakers and other presiding officers of the House and Committee of the Whole interpreting the rules and other procedural authority used in the House of Representatives."
The complete document is very large (1400+ pages), so the GPO made each chapter a separate file, viewable in HTML or PDF.

Previous editions (back the 105th Congress) are also available on the site.
