Providing for consideration of the bill (H.R. 2261) to provide for the regulation of lobbyists and gift reform, and for other purposes.

    Resolved, That immediately upon adoption of this resolution it shall be in order to consider in the House the bill (H.R. 2261) to provide for the regulation of lobbyists and gift reform, any rule of the House to the contrary notwithstanding. The first reading of the bill shall be dispensed with. Debate shall not exceed two hours, with one hour equally divided and controlled by the Chairman and ranking minority member of the Committee and ranking minority member of the Committee on the Judiciary and one hour equally divided and controlled by the Chairman and ranking minority member of the Committee on Standards of Official Conduct. The previous question shall be considered as ordered on the bill to final passage without intervening motion except one motion to recommit, with or without instructions.

    SEC. 2. After passage of H.R. 2261, it shall be in order in the House, any rule of the House to the contrary notwithstanding, to take from the Speaker’s table the bill (S. 1060), move to strike all after the enacting clause and insert in lieu thereof the provisions of title I of H.R. 2261 as passed by the House. If the motion is adopted and the Senate bill, as amended, is passed, it shall then be in order to move that the House insist upon its amendment to S. 1060 and request a conference with the Senate thereon.

    SEC. 3. The amendment (relating to congressional gift rules) made by section 201 of H.R. 2261 to clause 4 of rule XLIII of the Rules of the House of Representatives is hereby adopted. That amendment shall be effective for calendar years beginning on or after January 1, 1996.
