[H. Res. 44 Engrossed in House (EH)]


                In the House of Representatives, U. S.,

                                                      January 25, 1995.
    Resolved, That at any time after the adoption of this resolution it shall be 
in order to consider in the House the concurrent resolution (H. Con. Res. 17) 
relating to the treatment of Social Security under any constitutional amendment 
requiring a balanced budget, if called up by the majority leader or his 
designee. The concurrent resolution shall be debatable for one hour equally 
divided and controlled by the majority leader and the minority leader or their 
designees. The previous question shall be considered as ordered on the 
concurrent resolution to final adoption without intervening motion.
    Sec. 2. At any time after the disposition of the concurrent resolution made 
in order by the first section 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 joint resolution 
(H.J. Res. 1) proposing a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution of the 
United States. The first reading of the joint resolution shall be dispensed 
with. Points of order against consideration of the joint resolution for failure 
to comply with clause 2(g)(3) or clause 2(l)(2)(B) of rule XI are waived. 
General debate shall be confined to the joint resolution and shall not exceed 
three hours equally divided and controlled by the chairman and ranking minority 
member of the Committee on the Judiciary. After general debate the joint 
resolution shall be considered for amendment under the five-minute rule. The 
amendment in the nature of a substitute recommended by the Committee on the 
Judiciary now printed in the joint resolution shall be considered as read, shall 
be debatable for one hour equally divided and controlled by Representative 
Barton of Texas and an opponent, and shall not be subject to amendment while 
pending. No further amendment shall be in order except those designated in 
section 3 of this resolution. Each amendment may be offered only in the order 
designated, may be offered only by the named proponent or a designee, may be 
considered notwithstanding the adoption of a previous amendment in the nature of 
a substitute, 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. If more than one amendment 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, except that if the amendment in the 
nature of a substitute recommended by the Committee on the Judiciary is one of 
the amendments receiving the greater number of votes then it shall be the 
amendment considered as finally adopted. At the conclusion of consideration of 
the joint resolution for amendment the Committee shall rise and report the joint 
resolution to the House with such amendment as may have been finally adopted. 
The previous question shall be considered as ordered on the joint resolution and 
any amendment thereto to final passage without intervening motion except one 
motion to recommit with or without instructions.
    Sec. 3. The further amendments that may be offered after disposition of the 
amendment in the nature of a substitute recommended by the Committee on the 
Judiciary are those printed in the portion of the Congressional Record 
designated for that purpose in clause 6 of rule XXIII with the following 
designations: (a) the amendment numbered 4 by Representative Owens of New York; 
(b) the amendment numbered 1 by Representative Wise of West Virginia; (c) the 
amendment numbered 25 by Representative Conyers of Michigan; (d) the amendment 
numbered 29 by Representative Gephardt of Missouri; and (e) the amendment 
numbered 39 by Representative Schaefer of Colorado.
            Attest:

                                                                          Clerk.
