Passage of the en bloc amendment package was done after little debate. Amendments included en bloc were numbers 53, 59, 60, 62-97, and 103. Details on these amendments can be seen here (use the bolded numbers on the far left side).

In the hours before that vote, the House had considered roughly 50 amendments out of the 103 made in order. To finish by Thursday, the House will have to hold at least 17 votes on amendments, based on debate that took place Wednesday.

Before adjourning just before midnight, the House approved six other amendments by voice vote, from:
