tariff provision in a bill not reported by a committee with

printed in the report. The rule authorizes the Chair to accord priority 
in recognition to Members who have pre-printed their amendments in the 
Congressional Record. The rule

[[Page D664]]

allows the Chairman of the Committee of the Whole to postpone votes 
during consideration of the bill, and to reduce voting time to five 
minutes on a postponed question if the vote follows a fifteen minute 
vote. Finally, the rule provides one motion to recommit with or without
