                              R E P O R T

                      [To accompany H. Res. 1100]

    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 1100, by a nonrecord vote, reports the same to 
the House with the recommendation that the resolution be 
adopted.

                SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS OF THE RESOLUTION

    The resolution provides for the consideration of H.R. 6406, 
to modify temporarily certain rates of duty and make other 
technical amendments to the trade laws, to extend certain trade 
preference programs, and for other purposes, under a closed 
rule. The rule provides one hour of debate in the House equally 
divided and controlled by the chairman and ranking minority 
member of the Committee on Ways and Means. The rule waives all 
points of order against consideration of the bill. The rule 
provides one motion to recommit.
    The rule provides that, in the engrossment of the House 
amendment to the Senate amendment to the bill (H.R. 6111) to 
amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to provide that the Tax 
Court may review claims for equitable innocent spouse relief 
and to suspend the running on the period of limitations while 
such claims are pending, the Clerk shall:
    (a) add the text of H.R. 6406, as passed by the House, as 
new matter at the end of such engrossment;
    (b) assign appropriate designations to provisions within 
the engrossment; and
    (c) conform provisions for short titles within the 
engrossment.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The Committee is not aware of any points of order against 
consideration of the bill. The waiver of all points of order 
against consideration of the bill is prophylactic in nature.
