Providing for the consideration of the bill (H.R. 1468) to stabilize the dysfunctional wholesale power market in the Western United States, and for other purposes.

    Resolved, That immediately upon the adoption of this resolution the Speaker shall, pursuant to clause 2(b) of rule XVIII, declare the House resolved into the Committee of the Whole House on the state of the Union for consideration of the bill (H.R. 1468) to stabilize the dysfunctional wholesale power market in the Western United States, and for other purposes. The first reading of the bill shall be dispensed with and all points of order against consideration of the bill are waived. General debate shall be confined to the bill and to the amendments made in order by this resolution and shall not exceed two hours equally divided and controlled by the chairman and ranking minority member of the Committee on Energy and Commerce. After general debate the bill shall be considered for amendment under the five-minute rule. The bill shall be considered as read.

    SEC. 2. Before consideration of any other amendment it shall be in order to consider the following amendments in the nature of a substitute if printed in the Congressional Record designated for that purpose in clause 8 of rule XVIII:

      (a) An amendment in the nature of a substitute if offered by Representative Kind or his designee.

      (b) An amendment in the nature of a substitute if offered by Representative Ose, or his designee.

      (c) An amendment in the nature of a substitute if offered by Representative Filner, or his designee.

      (g) An amendment in the nature of a substitute if offered by Representative Hastert of Illinois, or his designee.

      (h) Any other amendment in the nature of a substitute offered by any other Representative.

    Each such amendment in the nature of a substitute may be offered only in the order specified, may be offered only by the named proponent (if any) or a designee, shall be considered as read, shall be debatable for one hour equally divided and controlled by the proponent and an opponent, and shall not be subject to amendment except as specified in section 3. During consideration of the bill in the Committee of the Whole, all points of order against each amendment in the nature of a substitute are waived except those arising under clause 7 of rule XVI. If more than one amendment in the nature of a substitute is adopted, then only the one receiving the greater number of affirmative votes shall be considered as finally adopted. In the case of a tie for the greater number of affirmative votes, then only the last amendment to receive that number of affirmative votes shall be considered as finally adopted.

    SEC. 3. (a) After disposition of the amendments in the nature of a substitute described in section 2, the provisions of the bill, or the provisions of the bill as perfected by an amendment in the nature of a substitute finally adopted, shall be considered as an original bill for the purpose of further amendment under the five-minute rule for a period of not to exceed 10 hours (excluding time consumed by recorded votes and proceedings incidental thereto) and shall be considered as read. Subject to subsection (b) no other amendment to the bill shall be in order except amendments printed in the portion of the Congressional Record designated for that purpose in clause 8 of rule XVIII. Each amendment so printed may be offered only by the Member who caused the amendment to be printed or a designee, and shall be considered as read.

    (b) It shall not be in order to consider an amendment carrying a tax or tariff measure. Consideration of each amendment, and amendments thereto, described in subsection (a) shall not exceed one hour. All points of order against each amendment are waived except those arising under clause 7 of rule XVI.

    SEC. 4. If on any day the Committee of the Whole rises and reports that it has come to no resolution on the bill, then on the next legislative day the House shall, immediately after the third daily order of business under clause 1 of rule XIV, resolve into the Committee of the Whole for further consideration of the bill.

    SEC. 5. 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. Any Member may demand a separate vote in the House on any amendment to the bill reported from the Committee of the Whole or to an amendment in the nature of a substitute finally adopted and reported to the House. 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.
