                 In the House of Representatives, U.S.,

                                                          May 22, 1996.
    Resolved, That upon the adoption of this resolution it shall be in order 
without intervention of any point of order (except those arising under section 
425(a) of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974) to consider in the House the 
bill (H.R. 3448) to provide tax relief for small businesses, to protect jobs, to 
create opportunities, to increase the take home pay of workers, and for other 
purposes. The amendment in the nature of a substitute recommended by the 
Committee on Ways and Means now printed in the bill shall be considered as read. 
All points of order against the committee amendment (except those arising under 
section 425(a) of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974) are waived. The bill and 
the amendment shall be debatable for one hour equally divided and controlled by 
the chairman and ranking minority member of the Committee on Ways and Means. The 
previous question shall be considered as ordered on the bill and the amendment 
to final passage without intervening motion except one motion to recommit with 
or without instructions. The yeas and nays shall be considered as ordered on the 
question of passage of the bill and on any conference report thereon. Clause 
5(c) of rule XXI shall not apply to the bill, amendments thereto, or conference 
reports thereon.
    Sec. 2. After disposition of H.R. 3448 it shall be in order without 
intervention of any point of order (except those arising under section 425(a) of 
the Congressional Budget Act of 1974) to consider in the House the bill (H.R. 
1227) to amend the Portal-to-Portal Act of 1947 relating to the payment of wages 
to employees who use employer owned vehicles. The amendment in the nature of a 
substitute recommended by the Committee on Economic and Educational 
Opportunities now printed in the bill, modified by the amendment printed in 
section 3 of this resolution, shall be considered as adopted. The previous 
question shall be considered as ordered on the bill, as amended, and any further 
amendment thereto to final passage without intervening motion except: (1) ninety 
minutes of debate on the bill, which shall be equally divided and controlled by 
the chairman and ranking minority member of the Committee on Economic and 
Educational Opportunities; (2) the further amendment printed in part 1 of the 
report of the Committee on Rules accompanying this resolution, which may be 
offered only by Representative Riggs of California or his designee, shall be in 
order without intervention of any point of order (except those arising under 
section 425(a) of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974), shall be considered as 
read, shall be separately debatable for ninety minutes equally divided and 
controlled by the proponent and an opponent, and shall not be subject to a 
demand for division of the question; (3) the further amendment printed in part 2 
of the report of the Committee on Rules accompanying this resolution, which may 
be offered only by Representative Goodling of Pennsylvania or his designee, 
shall be in order without intervention of any point of order (except those 
arising under section 425(a) of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974), shall be 
considered as read, shall be separately debatable for one hour equally divided 
and controlled by the proponent and an opponent, and on which the question shall 
be divided between the proposed subsection 3(d) and the remainder of the 
proposed section 3 (and shall not otherwise be subject to a demand for division 
of the question); and (4) one motion to recommit with or without instructions.
    Sec. 3. The amendment in the nature of a substitute recommended by the 
Committee on Economic and Educational Opportunities now printed in H.R. 1227 is 
modified by the following amendment: Immediately after the enacting clause 
insert the following new section (and redesignate succeeding sections 
accordingly):
    ``Section 1. This Act may be cited as the `Employee Commuting Flexibility 
Act of 1996'.''.
    Sec. 4. (a) In the engrossment of H.R. 3448, the Clerk shall--
            (1) await the disposition of H.R. 1227 pursuant to section 2 of this 
        resolution;
            (2) add the text of H.R. 1227, as passed by the House, as new matter 
        at the end of H.R. 3448;
            (3) conform the title of H.R. 3448 to reflect the addition of the 
        text of H.R. 1227 to the engrossment;
            (4) assign appropriate designations to titles within the 
        engrossment; and

    (b) Upon the addition of the text of H.R. 1227 to the engrossment of H.R. 
3448, H.R. 1227 shall be laid on the table.
            Attest:

                                                                          Clerk.
