Hatch request to consider resolution of disapproval re: HHS TANF rule

This afternoon Senator Hatch asked unanimous consent the Finance Committee be discharged from further consideration of S.J.Res.50; that there be 2 hours for debate on the motion to proceed to the joint resolution of disapproval prior to a vote on adoption of the motion to proceed.

Senator Cardin objected to the request.

S.J.Res.50: A joint resolution providing for congressional disapproval under chapter 8 of title 5, United States Code, of the rule submitted by the Office of Family Assistance of the Administration for Children and Families of the Department of Health and Human Services relating to waiver and expenditure authority under section 1115 of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1315) with respect to the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program.
