Resolved by the House of Delegates:
That House Rule 132 be amended to read as follows:
"Form and Content of Journal"
132. The Journal shall be kept and published in minute form
so as to show a running account of all proceedings and actions
taken. Every written motion, unless it be withdrawn on the same
day submitted and before action has been taken thereon, and such
other material and matters required by these rules and the joint
rules of the Senate and House shall be printed in the Journal. No
remarks of members, speeches, newspaper editorials and articles, or
other material shall be printed in the daily Journal, except
explanations of votes as provided by these rules and such portions
of remarks as may be necessary for the record in instances where a
member may be called to order for words spoken in debate.
The Clerk shall keep and publish an Appendix to the bound and
official Journals of each session of the House. There shall be
included in the Appendix all remarks of members and other material
ordered printed by the House.
An address or remarks by a member made on the floor of the House may be printed in the appendix with the consent of the House
only on the request of the member making such address or remarks or
by request of another member, if the member making such address or
remarks consents to said request.
