[H. Res. 396 Engrossed in House (EH)]

                 In the House of Representatives, U.S.,

                                                      October 16, 2003.
    Resolved, That at any time after the adoption of this resolution the Speaker 
may, pursuant to clause 2(b) of rule XVIII, declare the House resolved into the 
Committee of the Whole House on the state of the Union for consideration of the 
bill (H.R. 3289) making emergency supplemental appropriations for defense and 
for the reconstruction of Iraq and Afghanistan for the fiscal year ending 
September 30, 2004, and for other purposes. The first reading of the bill shall 
be dispensed with. All points of order against consideration of the bill are 
waived. General debate shall be confined to the bill and shall not exceed one 
hour equally divided and controlled by the chairman and ranking minority member 
of the Committee on Appropriations. After general debate the bill shall be 
considered for amendment under the five-minute rule. Points of order against 
provisions in the bill for failure to comply with clause 2 of rule XXI are 
waived except as follows: beginning with ``Provided'' on page 32, line 7, 
through ``Act):'' on line 20; section 3005; and section 3006. Where points of 
order are waived against part of a paragraph, points of order against a 
provision in another part of such paragraph may be made only against such 
provision and not against the entire paragraph. During consideration of the bill 
for amendment, the Chairman of the Committee of the Whole may accord priority in 
recognition on the basis of whether the Member offering an amendment has caused 
it to be printed in the portion of the Congressional Record designated for that 
purpose in clause 8 of rule XVIII. Amendments so printed shall be considered as 
read. At the conclusion of consideration of the bill for amendment the Committee 
shall rise and report the bill to the House with such amendments as may have 
been adopted. The previous question shall be considered as ordered on the bill 
and amendments thereto to final passage without intervening motion except one 
motion to recommit with or without instructions.
