    iPad News Daily reports that Democrat Representative Henry Cuellar recently tested the US House of Representatives ban on tech devices by taking his iPad to the Speaker’s podium. Although he was criticised for doing so and seemingly flouting the rule, iPad News Daily says that it is now looking likely that iPads may in future be allowed into the House, as the House Parliamentarian John Sullivan ruled that the presence of the iPad on the podium was not actually a breach of the rules, and he also advised the speaker that anyone should be allowed to bring their iPad into the House provided they were not using it to play sounds or to transmit anything. Furthermore, the incoming House Republican majority has proposed an amendment to the rules which would permit certain electronic devices, including the iPad, onto the House floor, so long as the presence of any such device didn’t “impair decorum.â€
