the Congress, or any subcommittee thereof, who is indicted for a felony 
for which a sentence of two or more years imprisonment may be imposed, 
shall cease to exercise the powers of chairman or ranking minority 
party member, as the case may be, and shall step aside in favor of the 
next ranking member of the committee or subcommittee who shall serve as 
acting chairman or acting ranking minority party member, as the case 
may be, unless or until the charges are dismissed or reduced to less 
than a felony for which a sentence of two or more years imprisonment 
may be imposed.''.
    (b) The amendment made by subsection (a) shall apply to any 
individual who is chairman or ranking minority party member of a 
standing, select, or special committee of the House or of a joint 
committee of the Congress, or any subcommittee thereof, who is indicted 
for a felony described in that amendment or is under indictment for 
such a felony on the date this resolution is agreed to.
