If the rules are suspended, bills can be passed by simple voice vote. Occasionally, a recorded vote is requested by a member of the House. The bills are expected to pass the House later Monday. Otherwise, they should be approved during the week. The chamber opened at noon Eastern Time with Representative Sharice Davids (D-Kansas), a citizen of the Ho-Chunk Nation and one of three tribal citizens of the United States Congress, serving as Pro tempore speaker for the day. November 1 marks the start of National Native American Heritage Month. A live broadcast of the House session can be viewed on or on C-SPAN. Indian country bills are expected to be reviewed around 4 p.m. EST.
