House Approves Rules for Military Funding and ICC Sanctions Bills

The U.S. House of Representatives passed rules to discuss and amend two bills. The first bill funds military construction and veterans' affairs for 2025. The second bill imposes sanctions on the International Criminal Court if it investigates or prosecutes U.S. soldiers or allies. Republicans supported this decision.

This is a plan to discuss and make decisions on two important pieces of government spending and rules. First, it sets rules for a discussion on a bill that will arrange money for military buildings and veteran services for the year ending in September 2025. It says this discussion can't go over one hour and can't be argued against by other rules.

Second, it arranges how to handle a bill that would punish the International Criminal Court if they try to investigate or charge U.S. soldiers and allies. This also can't be stopped by other rules and will only be discussed for one hour.

Simply, the document lays out the specific rules on how these two bills will be talked about, limiting the time and preventing any blockages, making sure they are discussed and decided quickly.
