H Res 153, Commending the University of Southern California Trojan football team for its victory in the 2009 Rose Bowl. Yes, how sad they would be without validation from Congress. Passed 362 15 4. Grijalva blew off voting to do something else.


Supporting the goals and ideals of Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Week. Passed 416 0.


Designating March 2, 2009, as Read Across America Day. Passed 417 0.


And for our grand finale, it looks like there was another privileged question on the House Floor today, which went like this:

QUESTION OF THE PRIVILEGES OF THE HOUSE Mr. Flake rose to a question of the privileges of the House and offered a resolution. The Chair directed the Clerk to report the resolution. The Clerk completed the reading of H.Res. 212 and the Chair announced that the resolution met the required threshold under the rule.

It was voted on and tabled again. Mavericky!
