  MAKING IN ORDER AT ANY TIME CONSIDERATION OF H.R. 3615, RURAL LOCAL 
                          BROADCAST SIGNAL ACT

  Mr. DREIER. Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous consent that it be in order 
at any time without intervention of any point of order to consider in 
the House the bill (H.R. 3615) to amend the Rural Electrification Act 
of 1936 to ensure improved access to the signals of local television 
stations by multichannel video providers to all households which desire 
such service in unserved and underserved rural areas by December 31, 
2006; that the bill be considered as read for amendment; that in lieu 
of the amendments recommended by the Committees on Agriculture and 
Commerce now printed in the bill, the amendment in the nature of a 
substitute that I have placed at the desk be considered as read and 
adopted; that the previous question shall be considered as ordered on 
the bill, as amended, to final passage without intervening motion 
except: (1) 1 hour of debate on the bill, as amended, equally divided 
among and controlled by the chairmen and ranking minority members of 
the Committees on Agriculture and Commerce; and (2) one motion to 
recommit with or without instructions; and that House Resolution 475 be 
laid on the table.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore (Mr. Miller of Florida). Is there objection 
to the request of the gentleman from California?
  There was no objection.
