VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
TO AMEND RULE 10 OF THE RULES OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES BY ADDING RULE 10.14 SO AS TO PROVIDE FOR THE HONESTY, OPENNESS, AND RESPONSIBILITY IN NOTIFICATION OF EXTRACTION RULE SO AS TO REQUIRE CERTAIN DOCUMENTATION FROM A MEMBER OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES WHEN THE MEMBER'S DESCENT OR LINEAGE IS CLAIMED IN ADDRESSING THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:
That Rule 10 of the Rules of the House of Representatives is amended by adding:
"10.14 (A) No member of the House of Representatives may address the body from any place on the floor of the House of Representatives or any committee of the House of Representatives and claim to be a descendant of any deceased person without having on hand at the time of addressing other members of the House of Representatives undeniable proof of his direct lineal descent. If the member's relationship to the deceased party is through a collateral descent or marriage they may not use the term descendant but must instead use the term 'relative' when associating themselves with the deceased party. If a member is claiming to be a 'relative' of a deceased party then at the time of making the claim while addressing other members of the House of Representatives, that member must have on hand undeniable proof of their relation to the deceased party.
(B) For the purposes of this rule, 'descendant' is defined as a person who is in direct line to an ancestor, such as child, grandchild, great-grandchild, etc. And, a 'collateral' descendant which would be from the line of a brother, sister, aunt, or uncle is to be classified as a relative but not a direct descendant.
(C) This rule may be cited as the Honesty, Openness, and Responsibility in Notification of Extraction Rule."
