RESOLUTION

Providing for the consideration of the resolution (H. Res. 40) to amend the Rules of the House of Representatives concerning the receipt of gifts from lobbyists and other persons, and for other purposes.

    Resolved, That immediately upon the adoption of this resolution the House shall resolve itself into the Committee of the Whole House on the state of the Union for the consideration of the resolution (H. Res. 40) to amend the Rules of the House of Representatives concerning the receipt of gifts from lobbyists and other persons, and for other purposes. The first reading of the resolution shall be dispensed with, and all points of order against the resolution and against its consideration are waived. After general debate, which shall be confined to the resolution and shall not exceed one hour equally divided and controlled by the majority leader and the minority leader, or their designees, the resolution shall be considered for amendment under the five-minute rule and shall be considered as read. No amendment shall be in order except--

      (1) an amendment in the nature of a substitute, if offered by the majority leader or his designee; and, after disposition of said amendment; and

      (2) an amendment in the nature of a substitute, if offered by the minority leader or his designee.

    If more than one of the amendments in the nature of a substitute is adopted, only the last to be adopted shall be considered as finally adopted and reported to the House. The amendments are debatable for one hour each, equally divided and controlled by the proponent and opponent thereto, are not subject to amendment, and are not subject to a demand for a division of the question in the House or in the Committee of the Whole, and are in order even if amending text previously amended. At the conclusion of the consideration of the resolution for amendment, the Committee shall rise and report the resolution to the House with such amendment as may have been adopted, and the previous question shall be considered as ordered on the resolution and any amendment thereto to final passage without intervening motion except one motion to recommit, with or without instructions.
