``Concurrent resolution providing for adjournment during August
    ``13. If by July 31 of any calendar year the House has not passed 
each of the regular appropriation bills for the fiscal year which 
begins on October 1 of that calendar year, it shall not be in order to

until the House has passed each such bill. For purposes of this clause, 
term `regular appropriation bill' means any annual appropriation bill 
which is under the jurisdiction of a single subcommittee of the 
Committee on Appropriations of the House of Representatives (as may be 
provided under the Rules for the fiscal year involved).''.
