Having watched multiple sessions of Congress and the joint session to count the electoral votes, I have noticed how it is the Parliamentarians that tell the presiding officer what to read and say. When Ron Johnson made the full covid relief bill be read in its entirety, There were some groans, And it was the Parliamentarian that instructed Kamala Harris to use the Senate gavel and say "Senate will be in order. " The Parliamentarians interpret the rules and they are pretty much the de facto presiding officers, So the House Parliamentarian should be the Speaker of the House and the Senate Parliamentarian should be the President Pro Tempore.
