adopted.

               brief summary of provisions of resolution

    The resolution provides for the further consideration of 
H.R. 1977, the Interior Appropriations Bill for Fiscal Year 
1996, under a rule limiting the further consideration of 
amendments to the bill. The rule provides for the further 
consideration of the bill for amendment without intervening 
motion except: (1) amendments printed in the Congressional 
Record prior to July 14, 1995; (2) motions that the Committee 
rise if offered by the Majority Leader or his designee; and (3) 
motions that the Committee rise and report with adopted 
amendments as a preferential motion pursuant to clause 2(d) of 
rule XXI.
    The rule provides that printed amendments may be offered 
only by the Members who caused them to be printed, are 
considered as read, are debatable for 10 minutes each divided 
between the proponent and an opponent, and are not subject to 
amendment or to a demand for a division of the question.
    The rule authorizes the chairman of the Committee of the 
Whole to postpone any request for a recorded vote on an 
amendment to a later time and to reduce to five minutes the 
time for a vote on any amendment in a series of amendments 
after the vote on the first such amendment of not less than 15 
minutes.
