In the House of Representatives, U. S.,

                                                         July 31, 1995.
    Resolved, That at any time after the adoption of this resolution the Speaker 
may, pursuant to clause 1(b) of rule XXIII, declare the House resolved into the 
Committee of the Whole House on the state of the Union for consideration of the 
bill (H.R. 2126) making appropriations for the Department of Defense for the 
fiscal year ending September 30, 1996, and for other purposes. The first reading 
of the bill shall be dispensed with. All points of order against consideration 
of the bill for failure to comply with clause 2(l)(6) of the rule XI, clause 7 
of rule XXI, or section 306 of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974 are waived. 
General debate shall be confined to the bill and shall not exceed one hour 
equally divided and controlled by the chairman and ranking minority member of 
the Committee on Appropriations. After general debate the bill shall be 
considered for amendment under the five-minute rule. The bill shall be 
considered by title rather than by paragraph. Each title shall be considered as 
read. Points of order against provisions in the bill for failure to comply with 
clause 2 or 6 of rule XXI are waived. An amendment striking sections 8021 and 
8024 of the bill shall be considered as adopted in the House and in the 
Committee of the Whole. During consideration of the bill for amendment, the 
Chairman of the Committee of the Whole may accord priority in recognition on the 
basis of whether the Member offering an amendment has caused it to be printed in 
the portion of the Congressional Record designated for that purpose in clause 6 
of rule XXIII. Amendments so printed shall be considered as read. At the 
conclusion of consideration of the bill for amendment the Committee shall rise 
and report the bill to the House with such amendments as may have been adopted. 
The previous question shall be considered as ordered on the bill and amendments 
thereto to final passage without intervening motion except one motion to 
recommit with or without instructions.
            Attest:

                                                                          Clerk.
