Certain CD-ROMs in the Marine Corps Electronic Publications Library that were distributed to depository libraries through the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) contain personally identifiable information (PII).
The Superintendent of Documents issued an official notification letter for all Federal depository libraries on March 22, 2016,
The U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) is working with the House of Representatives Committee on Rules, the House Parliamentarian, and the Clerk of the House to make Jefferson’s Manual and the Rules of the House of Representatives available in XML format using the United States Legislative Markup (USLM) schema.
Jefferson’s Manual and the Rules of the House of Representatives is published by the House Parliamentarian and contains the source material for parliamentary procedure used in that Chamber. The document includes the Constitution of the United States, applicable provisions of Jefferson’s Manual, the rules of the House, provisions of law and resolutions having the force of rules of the House, and pertinent decisions of the Speakers and other presiding officers of the House and Committee of the Whole interpreting the rules and other procedural authority used in the House of Representatives.
