H. Res. 553

                In the House of Representatives, U. S.,

                                                       October 4, 2017.
    Resolved, That at any time after 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 
concurrent resolution (H. Con. Res. 71) establishing the congressional budget 
for the United States Government for fiscal year 2018 and setting forth the 
appropriate budgetary levels for fiscal years 2019 through 2027. The first 
reading of the concurrent resolution shall be dispensed with. All points of 
order against consideration of the concurrent resolution are waived. General 
debate shall not exceed four hours, with three hours of general debate confined 
to the congressional budget equally divided and controlled by the chair and 
ranking minority member of the Committee on the Budget and one hour of general 
debate on the subject of economic goals and policies equally divided and 
controlled by Representative Tiberi of Ohio and Representative Carolyn Maloney 
of New York or their respective designees. After general debate the concurrent 
resolution shall be considered for amendment under the five-minute rule. The 
concurrent resolution shall be considered as read. No amendment shall be in 
order except those printed in the report of the Committee on Rules accompanying 
this resolution. Each such 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, and shall be debatable for the time specified in the report 
equally divided and controlled by the proponent and an opponent. All points of 
order against such amendments are waived except that the adoption of an 
amendment in the nature of a substitute shall constitute the conclusion of 
consideration of the concurrent resolution for amendment. After the conclusion 
of consideration of the concurrent resolution for amendment and a final period 
of general debate, which shall not exceed 10 minutes equally divided and 
controlled by the chair and ranking minority member of the Committee on the 
Budget, the Committee shall rise and report the concurrent resolution to the 
House with such amendment as may have been adopted. The previous question shall 
be considered as ordered on the concurrent resolution and amendments thereto to 
adoption without intervening motion except amendments offered by the chair of 
the Committee on the Budget pursuant to section 305(a)(5) of the Congressional 
Budget Act of 1974 to achieve mathematical consistency. The concurrent 
resolution shall not be subject to a demand for division of the question of its 
adoption.
            Attest:

                                                                          Clerk.
