Rules sub-committee hopes to finalise impeachment rules by March

Eyewitness News reporter Gaye Davis says the sub-committee will reconvene on January 24.

Then there is a further process because these rules will have to go before the full rules committee itself and they may just immediately approve them or there might be questions.
