                                _______


May 25, 1995.--Referred to the House Calendar and ordered to be printed

_______________________________________________________________________


     Mr. Goss, from the Committee on Rules, submitted the following

                              R E P O R T

                       [To accompany H. Res. 156]
    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 156, by a record vote of 7 to 3, report the 
same to the House with the recommendation that the resolution 
be adopted.

               brief summary of provisions of resolution

    The resolution provides for the further consideration of 
amendments to H.R. 1561, the ``Overseas Interests Act of 1995'' 
for an additional period of six hours after the expiration of 
the initial 10-hour amendment process provided for in H. Res. 
155. The rule permits the consideration only of amendments 
printed in the Congressional Record by May 24, 1995, under the 
five-minute rule, pro forma amendments for debate purposes, 
amendments considered en bloc pursuant to section 2 of H. Res. 
155 if printed in the Record by May 24th (and germane 
modifications thereof), and an amendment by the chairman of the 
International Relations Committee, after consultation with the 
ranking minority member, if otherwise in order, even though not 
printed in the Congressional Record.
    The purpose of this rule is to expand the time limit on the 
amendment process given the numerous amendments filed in the 
Record by May 24th. The rule vitiates the earlier 2:30 p.m. 
deadline on Thursday, May 25th, for completing the amendment 
process, as well as the original 10-minute per amendment 
allocation of time after the expiration of the 10-hour limit up 
to the 2:30 p.m. deadline. This means that amendments will 
continue to be considered under an open amendment process under 
the five-minute rule. The rule does not alter the authority of 
the chairman of the International Relations Committee to offer 
en bloc pre-printed amendments, or germane modifications 
thereof, under the original terms of H. Res. 155, i.e., such 
amendments are not amendable but are debatable for 10 minutes 
equally divided and controlled by the chairman and ranking 
minority member. And the rule does not alter the right to offer 
a motion to recommit, with or without instructions as provided 
for in H. Res. 155.
                            committee votes
    Pursuant to clause 2(l)(2)(B) of House rule XI the results 
of each rollcall vote on an amendment or motion to report, 
together with the names of those voting for and against, are 
printed below:

the Overseas Interests Act.

limit and pre-printing requirements for amendments.
