    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. 4078) to provide that no agency may take any significant regulatory 
action until the unemployment rate is equal to or less than 6.0 percent. 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 two hours equally divided and controlled by the chair 
and ranking minority member of the Committee on the Judiciary and the chair and 
ranking minority member of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. 
After general debate the bill shall be considered for amendment under the five-
minute rule. In lieu of the amendments in the nature of a substitute recommended 
by the Committees on the Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform now 
printed in the bill, an amendment in the nature of a substitute consisting of 
the text of Rules Committee Print 112-28, modified by the amendment printed in 
part A of 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. 
The bill, as amended, shall be considered as the original bill for the purpose 
of further amendment under the five-minute rule and shall be considered as read. 
All points of order against provisions in the bill, as amended, are waived. No 
further amendment to the bill, as amended, shall be in order except those 
printed in part B of the report of the Committee on Rules. Each such further 
amendment may be offered only in the order printed in the report, may be offered 
only by a Member designated in the report, shall be considered as read, shall be 
debatable for the time specified in the report equally divided and controlled by 
the proponent and an opponent, shall not be subject to amendment, and shall not 
be subject to a demand for division of the question in the House or in the 
Committee of the Whole. All points of order against such further amendments are 
waived. 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, as amended, and any further amendment thereto 
to final passage without intervening motion except one motion to recommit with 
or without instructions.
