Students should consult the simulation manual at: http://dwardmac.pitzer.edu/dward/classes/congpres/simulationrules.html They should also note these addenda:
Floor Procedure: As the simulation manual says ("floor consideration"), the majority and minority leaders will devise the functional equivalent of a unanimous consent agreement governing floor action. The faculty members may arbitrate any dispute regarding this agreement.
Role of Faculty Members: During the simulation, the main task of the faculty members is to observe the simulation, not to provide answers to every substantive or procedural question. Our motto is "YOU figure it out!" Nevertheless, when we do issue a ruling, it is final and unappealable.
