Bayh notes from conference committee

Document Viewer

Three areas of disagreement emerged between House and Senate versions, all involving time: the period of time during which the vice president and cabinet must decide whether they disagree with the president’s declaration that he is fit to resume his duties (two days versus seven); the time before Congress convenes to resolve the issue between the president and the vice president and cabinet (48 hours versus the less specific “immediately”); and the time-limit for Congress to reach a decision (10 days versus no specific time limit). Bayh’s notes hint at the hypothetical situations posed in order to test the two versions
