DIRECTING THE CLERK OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES TO MAKE CORRECTIONS 
                    IN THE ENGROSSMENT OF H.R. 6201

  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Without objection, the Chair lays before the 
House the following resolution (H. Res. 904) directing the Clerk of the 
House of Representatives to make corrections in the engrossment of H.R. 
6201.
  The Clerk read the title of the resolution.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Is there objection to the consideration of 
the resolution?
  Mr. GOHMERT. Madam Speaker, I reserve the right to object.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The gentleman from Texas is recognized on 
his reservation.
  Mr. GOHMERT. Madam Speaker, we had rushed this bill to the floor--I 
would say rush. It had been an all-day thing Thursday and and all-day 
event Friday, and most of us were not part of the negotiations. We kept 
getting different versions of the bill that was going to be coming to 
the floor, and about 9 o'clock I got the latest rendition and had read 
that. I made a lot of notes and tags and things I was concerned about, 
and then I thought that was what we were going to be voting on that 
night; but then there was a new version filed immediately before 
midnight, and we voted about 12:30.
  So I had real concerns about some of the wordings, some of the 
problems. Of course, as President Obama said, elections have 
consequences; the majority is going to get a whole lot more of what 
they want in a bill than the minority. I totally understand that, but 
there were some concerns about matters.
  I am very concerned about small businesses. It had been changed from 
other laws, exempting those with over 50 or more--like in ObamaCare--
employees. Yet in this one, it changed exempting under 500 to under 
50--I'm sorry--applying to everybody under 500. That included all those 
under 50.
  A big concern is that it was going to overwhelm some of our smallest 
businesses. We know a majority of Americans work for small businesses. 
They create more job opportunities. So this was a big deal. But though 
I didn't support the bill, and I still have big concerns, I am very 
grateful for the efforts of the majority, the President, the Secretary 
of the Treasury, and staff members of our minority leader who have 
continued to negotiate and work to try to get some of these problems 
figured out.
  So there is no question in my mind at this point that what are being 
called technical corrections make the bill better than it was when it 
got passed in the wee hours Saturday morning. So because of that, Madam 
Speaker, I withdraw my objection to the technical corrections so there 
may be unanimous consent now that I withdraw my objection.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The reservation of the gentleman from Texas 
is withdrawn.
  Is there objection to consideration of the resolution?
  There was no objection.
  The text of the resolution is as follows:

                              H. Res. 904

       Resolved, That the Clerk of the House of Representatives
