[H. Res. 683 Engrossed in House (EH)]

                 In the House of Representatives, U.S.,

                                                         June 22, 2004.
    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. 4613) making appropriations for the Department of Defense for the 
fiscal year ending September 30, 2005, 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. The amendment 
printed in the report of the Committee on Rules accompanying this resolution 
shall be considered as adopted in the House and in the Committee of the Whole. 
Points of order against provisions in the bill, as amended, for failure to 
comply with clause 2 of rule XXI are waived. During consideration of the bill 
for further 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, as amended, to the House 
with such further 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 
    Sec. 2. Upon the adoption of this resolution it shall be in order, any rule 
of the House to the contrary notwithstanding, to consider concurrent resolutions 
providing for adjournment of the House and Senate during the month of July.
