[H. Res. 525 Engrossed in House (EH)]


                 In the House of Representatives, U.S.,

                                                    September 11, 1998.
    Resolved, That the Committee on the Judiciary shall review the communication 
received on September 9, 1998, from an independent counsel pursuant to section 
595(c) of title 28, United States Code, transmitting a determination that 
substantial and credible information received by the independent counsel in 
carrying out his responsibilities under chapter 40 of title 28, United States 
Code, may constitute grounds for an impeachment of the President of the United 
States, and related matters, to determine whether sufficient grounds exist to 
recommend to the House that an impeachment inquiry be commenced. Until otherwise 
ordered by the House, the review by the committee shall be governed by this 
resolution.
    Sec. 2. The material transmitted to the House by the independent counsel 
shall be considered as referred to the committee. The portion of such material 
consisting of approximately 445 pages comprising an introduction, a narrative, 
and a statement of grounds, shall be printed as a document of the House. The 
balance of such material shall be deemed to have been received in executive 
session, but shall be released from the status on September 28, 1998, except as 
otherwise determined by the committee. Material so released shall immediately be 
submitted for printing as a document of the House.
    Sec. 3. Additional material compiled by the committee during the review also 
shall be deemed to have been received in executive session unless it is received 
in an open session of the committee.
    Sec. 4. Notwithstanding clause 2(e) of rule XI, access to executive-session 
material of the committee relating to the review shall be restricted to members 
of the committee, and to such employees of the committee as may be designated by 
the chairman after consultation with the ranking minority member.
    Sec. 5. Notwithstanding clause 2(g) of rule XI, each meeting, hearing, or 
deposition of the committee relating to the review shall be conducted in 
executive session unless otherwise determined by an affirmative vote of the 
committee, a majority being present. Such an executive session may be attended 
only by members of the committee, and by such employees of the committee as may 
be designated by the chairman after consultation with the ranking minority 
member.

                                                                          Clerk.
