The fine print - which matters a lot in this case - is unreadable at the resolution you provide. Can you give a link to a higher-resolution version, for example in a pdf?

Serious flaw in the graphic, which I was able to enlarge by clicking on it: the House Rules Committee is ignored. Back in the old days (i.e., 1961), House Rules under Rep. Smith was the stone wall against which most liberal bills, certainly almost all civil rights legislation, smashed. Its power was clipped in the 60's, but it's still important.
