Subject: Re: Martial Law Declared in USA?

This is a rules procedure in the House:
'Mr. Speaker I understand we are under Martial Law as declared by the speaker last night,' Rep. Burgess, (R-TX).  A process known as 'martial law' allows bills to be brought to the floor very shortly after negotiations are completed, so Members of the House have little time to examine them before they vote. >>
