A number of small-scale funding measures have been introduced in the House since the government shutdown went into effect last night. Here's a few that the Committee on Rules considered today (including some quite provocative titles): 

H.J. Res. 70 - Open Our National Parks and Museums Act

H.J. Res. 71 - Provide Local Funding for the District of Columbia Act 

H.J. Res. 72 - Honoring Our Promise to America's Veterans Act

H.J. Res. 73 - Research for Lifesaving Cures Act 

H.R. 3230 - Pay Our Guard and Reserve Act
