This report examines in text and tables how committees implemented House rules in their individual committee rules for the 113th Congress. The variety as well as consistency in committee rules is analyzed as these rules relate to legislative activities, principally hearings, oversight, and markups.4 Administrative provisions in House and committee rules are not analyzed in this report. Provisions of committee rules applicable to legislative activities are clustered by topic, rather than by House rule number. Bills: H.R. 1163, H.R. 1947, H.R. 5005
