    BREAKING -- Reconciliation bill will have to go back to the House

    Excerpted from “BREAKING -- Reconciliation bill will have to go back to the House” By Meredith Shiner with Chris Frates, Politico, 03:06 AM
    The reconciliation bill will have to go back to the House for another vote after Senate parliamentarian Alan Frumin ruled early this morning that two minor provisions violated the chamber's rules and could not be included in the final bill, according to Majority Leader Harry Reid's spokesman Jim Manley.

    Both provisions made technical changes to the bill's Pell Grant regulations. All told, 16 lines of text will be removed from the 153-page bill, Manley told reporters as business on the Senate floor wrapped early Thursday morning. …
    It'll be over soon in the Senate, as early as 2 pm et today¹, but, it will be going back to the House.

    How many new bribes will it take to be passed?

    I haven't looked up that part of the reconciliation package but I'd bet it's something to do with shuffling some money around to pay for part of the healthcare bill.

    I believe the Pell grant revisions are part of the student loan reform which was tacked onto the health care reform fixes.

    My understanding is that there is typically just one reconciliation bill per year (per session?) and student loan reform, something that President Clinton tried to pass and failed, was included in the package precisely because it couldn't muster super-majority support.

    The two stricken provisions were, again, my understanding, minor; so the reconciliation bill can proceed without them and it should be a straightforward vote in the House.
