Jackson then pressed Price on when the two bills were made available, and argued that House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) has said no bill would be brought to the floor until it is made public for 72 hours. House Republicans have interpreted that pledge to mean that bills can only be considered within three calendar days.
Regardless, Price said Jackson's comments were not a proper parliamentary inquiry.
Jackson pressed again: "Is the majority waiving the position of the Speaker, waiving the rules as it relates to the legislation before us?"
"The gentleman from Illinois is engaging in debate and not stating a parliamentary inquiry," Price replied.
When Jackson said the fact of the matter is that the bill has not even been available for three calendar days, Price shut down the effort: "The gentleman is out of order. The gentleman is not stating a parliamentary inquiry."
