SEC. 2. FINDINGS AND PURPOSES.

    (a) Findings.--The Congress makes the following findings:
            (1) All employees of the House of Representatives, of the 
        Senate, and of the congressional instrumentalities are entitled 
        to fundamental rights and protections provided by law to 
        private and other public employees.
            (2) The Congress has made notable progress in ensuring that 
        such rights and protections are afforded to these legislative 
        branch employees, by--
                    (A) extending to employees of the House of 
                Representatives the provisions of the Civil Rights Act 
                of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, 
                the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, and the Fair 
                Labor Standards Act of 1938;
                    (B) extending to employees of the Senate the 
                provisions of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age 
                Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, the 
                Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with 
                Disabilities Act of 1990, and the Family and Medical 
                Leave Act of 1993; and
                    (C) extending to employees of congressional 
                instrumentalities numerous rights and protections under 
                employment laws.
            (3) The Congress should expand on this base of rights and 
        protections by eliminating gaps in coverage and extending 
        coverage so as to assure to legislative branch employees the 
        rights and protections of laws on employment discrimination, 
        family and medical leave, fair labor standards, labor-
        management relations, and occupational safety and health.
            (4) The Congress should likewise establish prompt, fair, 
        and independent processes to resolve disputes and to enforce 
        employee rights and protections, building on and strengthening 
        the dispute resolution and enforcement procedures already 
        established by the Government Employees Rights Act of 1991 (2 
        U.S.C. 1201 et seq.), section 117 of the Civil Rights Act of 
        1991 (2 U.S.C. 60l), and other relevant enactments and rules of 
        Congress.
            (5) The extension of employee rights and protections 
        affecting employees of the Architect of the Capitol and the 
        Capitol Police should be accomplished in a manner that ensures 
        that they are treated in a consistent manner regardless of 
        their place of assignment within the Congress.
            (6) The extension of employee rights and protections should 
        be accomplished in a manner that is consistent with the 
        responsibilities and functions of the House of Representatives 
        and the Senate under the Constitution.
    (b) Purposes.--The purposes of this Act are to eliminate gaps in 
coverage, extend coverage, and establish prompt, fair, and independent 
dispute resolution and enforcement procedures, for rights and 
protections established by--
            (1) title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964;
            (2) the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938;
            (3) the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967;
            (4) title I and title II of the Americans with Disabilities 
        Act of 1990;
            (5) section 501 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973;
            (6) the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993;
            (7) the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970; and

(b), and (c) may be amended in the same manner as is described in 
subsections (d), (e), and (f), except that the Board may, in its 
discretion, dispense with publication of a general notice of proposed 
rulemaking of minor, technical, or urgent amendments that satisfy the 
criteria for dispensing with publication of such notice pursuant to 
section 553(b) of title 5, United States Code.

by a hearing officer pursuant to this Act.
    (b) Complaint.--Any complaint shall be filed with the Office 
against the employing office. Any complaint required by this Act to be

employee has made a timely request for counseling and has completed the 
procedures set forth in sections 301 and 302.
    (c) Hearing Officer.--Upon the filing of a complaint, the Director 
shall appoint an independent hearing officer to consider the complaint 
and render a decision. No Member of the House of Representatives, 
Senator, officer of either the House of Representatives or the Senate, 
head of an employing office, member of the Board, or covered employee 
may be appointed to be a hearing officer under this Act. The Director 
shall develop master lists, composed of individuals experienced in

for which hearings may be held under this Act, after considering 
candidates recommended to the Director by the Federal Mediation and 
Conciliation Service, the Administrative Conference of the United 
States, or organizations composed primarily of individuals experienced 
in adjudicating or arbitrating such matters. The Director shall select 
hearing officers on a rotational or random basis from these lists. 
Nothing in this section shall prevent the appointment of hearing 
officers as full-time employees of the Office, or the selection of 
hearing officers on the basis of specialized expertise needed for 
particular matters.
    (d) Hearing.--Unless a complaint is dismissed prior to hearing, a 
hearing shall be conducted--
            (1) on the record by the hearing officer;
            (2) as expeditiously as practical, commencing not later 
        than 90 days after the filing of the complaint; and
            (3) except as specifically provided in this Act and to the 
        greatest extent practicable, in accordance with the principles 
        and procedures set forth in sections 554 through 557 of title 
        5, United States Code.
    (e) Discovery.--Reasonable prehearing discovery may be permitted at 
the discretion of the hearing officer.
    (f) Subpoenas.--
            (1) In general.--At the request of a party, a hearing 
        officer may issue subpoenas for the attendance of witnesses and 
        for the production of correspondence, books, papers, documents, 
        and other records. The attendance of witnesses and the 
        production of records may be required from any place within the 
        United States. Subpoenas shall be served in the manner provided 
        under rule 45(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
            (2) Objections.--If a person refuses, on the basis of 
        relevance, privilege, or other objection, to testify in 
        response to a question or to produce records in connection with 
        a proceeding before a hearing officer, the hearing officer 
        shall rule on the objection. At the request of the witness or 
        any party, the hearing officer shall (or on the hearing 
        officer's own initiative, the hearing officer may) refer the 
        ruling to the Board for review.
            (3) Enforcement.--
                    (A) In general.--If a person fails to comply with a 
                subpoena, the Board may authorize the General Counsel 
                to apply to an appropriate United States district court 
                for an order requiring that person to appear before the 
                hearing officer to give testimony or produce records. 
                The application may be made within the judicial 
                district where the hearing is conducted or where that 
                person is found, resides, or transacts business. Any 
                failure to obey a lawful order of the district court 
                issued pursuant to this section may be held by such 
                court to be a civil contempt thereof.
                    (B) Service of process.--Process in an action or 
                contempt proceeding pursuant to subparagraph (A) may be 
                served in any judicial district in which the person 
                refusing or failing to comply, or threatening to refuse 
                or not to comply, resides, transacts business, or may 
                be found, and subpoenas for witnesses who are required 
                to attend such proceedings may run into any other 
                district.
    (g) Decision.--The hearing officer shall issue a written decision 
as expeditiously as possible, but in no case more than 60 days after 
the conclusion of the hearing. The written decision shall be 
transmitted by the Office to the parties. The decision shall state the 
issues raised in the complaint, describe the evidence in the record, 
contain findings of fact and conclusions of law, contain a 
determination of whether a violation has occurred, and order such 
remedies as are appropriate pursuant to section 101(c), 102(c), 103(c), 
105(c), 106(c), or 107. The decision shall be entered in the records of 
the Office.

this section shall be guided by judicial decisions under the statutes 
made applicable by title I and by Board decisions under this Act.

officer and the decision of the hearing officer.
    (e) Decision.--The Board shall issue a written decision setting 
forth the reasons for its decision. The decision may affirm, reverse,

                   TITLE IV--MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS

SEC. 401. EXPEDITED PROCEDURES FOR CONGRESSIONAL CONSIDERATION OF 
              SUBSTANTIVE RULES.

    (a) Introduction of Joint Resolutions.--On the same day as a final 
substantive rule issued under section 204(c) is published in the 
Congressional Record, the Majority Leader of the House of 
Representatives or his designee (for himself and the Minority Leader or 
his designee) and the Majority Leader of the Senate or his designee 
(for himself and the Minority Leader or his designee) shall each 
introduce a joint resolution in the form specified in section 204(f).
    (b) Referral.--The joint resolutions introduced under subsection 
(a) shall be referred by the Presiding Officers of the respective 
Houses to, in the House of Representatives, the Committee on House 
Administration, and, in the Senate, jointly to the Committee on 
Governmental Affairs and the Committee on Rules. A committee to which 
such joint resolution is referred under this subsection shall report 
such joint resolution to its respective House without amendment.
    (c) Discharge of Committee.--If any committee to which a joint 
resolution introduced under subsection (a) is referred has not reported 
such resolution at the end of the 45th calendar day of continuous 
session after its introduction, such committee shall be automatically 
discharged from further consideration of the joint resolution and, upon 
being reported or discharged from all committees, such joint resolution 
shall be placed on the appropriate calendar.
    (d) Floor Consideration.--
            (1) In general.--On or after the 5th calendar day of 
        continuous session after the date on which a joint resolution 
        introduced under subsection (a) has been placed on the 
        calendar, it shall be in order (even though a previous motion 
        to the same effect has been disagreed to) for any Member of the 
        relevant House to move to proceed to the consideration of the 
        joint resolution. All points of order against the joint 
        resolution (and against consideration of the joint resolution) 
        are waived. The motion is highly privileged in the House of 
        Representatives and is privileged in the Senate and is not 
        debatable. The motion is not subject to amendment, or to a 
        motion to postpone, or to a motion to proceed to the 
        consideration of other business. A motion to reconsider the 
        vote by which the motion is agreed to or disagreed to is not in 
        order. If a motion to proceed to the consideration of the joint 
        resolution is agreed to, the joint resolution shall remain the 
        unfinished business of the relevant House until disposed of.
            (2) Debate.--Debate on the joint resolution, and on all 
        debatable motions and appeals in connection therewith, shall be 
        limited to not more than 10 hours in each House, which time 
        shall be divided equally between those favoring and those 
        opposing the joint resolution. A motion further to limit debate 
        is in order and is not debatable. An amendment to, or a motion 
        to postpone, or a motion to proceed to the consideration of 
        other business, or a motion to recommit the joint resolution is 
        not in order.
            (3) Amendments prohibited.--No amendment to the joint 
        resolution is in order.
            (4) Vote on final passage.--Immediately following the 
        conclusion of the debate on a joint resolution described in 
        subsection (a), and a single quorum call at the conclusion of 
        the debate if requested in accordance with the rules of the 
        appropriate House, the vote on final passage of the joint 
        resolution shall occur. A motion to reconsider the vote by 
        which the joint resolution is agreed to or disagreed to is not 
        in order.
            (5) Motion to suspend application.--No motion to suspend 
        the application of this section shall be in order, nor shall it 
        be in order for the Presiding Officer to entertain a request to 
        suspend the application of this section by unanimous consent.
            (6) Rulings of the chair on procedure.--Appeals from the 
        decisions of the Chair relating to the application of the rules 
        of the Senate or the House of Representatives, as the case may 
        be, to the procedure relating to a joint resolution described 
        in subsection (a) shall be decided without debate.
    (e) Coordination With Action by Other House.--If, before one House 
passes a joint resolution described in subsection (a), that House 
receives from the other House a joint resolution or bill with identical 
text after the resolving or enacting clause, then the following 
procedures shall apply:
            (1) The joint resolution or bill of the other House shall 
        not be referred to a committee and shall be deemed to have been 
        read three times.
            (2) With respect to the joint resolution described in 
        subsection (a) of the House that received the joint resolution 
        from the other House--
                    (A) the procedure shall be the same as if no joint 
                resolution had been received from the other House; 
                except
                    (B) the vote on final passage shall be on the joint 
                resolution or bill of the other House.
    (f) Numbers of Days.--For purposes of this section, in computing a 
number of calendar days in either House, there shall be excluded any 
day on which that House was not in session.

rules issued by the Board under sections 204(a) and 204(b) are issued--
            (1) as an exercise of the rulemaking power of the House of 
        Representatives and the Senate, respectively, and as such they 
        shall be considered as part of the rules of such House, 
        respectively, and such rules shall supersede other rules only 
        to the extent that they are inconsistent therewith; and
            (2) with full recognition of the constitutional right of 
        either House to change such rules (so far as relating to such 
        House) at any time, in the same manner, and to the same extent 
        as in the case of any other rule of each House.
