                              R E P O R T

                      [To accompany H. Res. 1501]

    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 1501, by a non-record vote, report the same to 
the House with the recommendation that the resolution be 
adopted.

                SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS OF THE RESOLUTION

    The resolution provides for consideration of H.R. 7060, the 
``Renewable Energy and Job Creation Tax Act of 2008,'' under a 
closed rule. The resolution provides one hour of debate equally 
divided and controlled by the chairman and ranking minority 
member of the Committee on Ways and Means.
    The resolution waives all points of order against 
consideration of the bill except those arising under clause 10 
of rule XXI. The resolution provides that the bill shall be 
considered as read. The resolution waives all points of order 
against the bill.
    The resolution provides one motion to recommit with or 
without instructions. Notwithstanding the operation of the 
previous question, the Chair may postpone further consideration 
until a time designated by the Speaker. Finally, the resolution 
lays on the table House Resolution 1489.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
the bill (except those arising under clause 10 of rule XXI) 
includes a waiver of clause 9 of rule XXI (regarding earmark 
disclosure). The waiver is necessary because the bill is being 
considered the same day it was introduced. The Committee is not 
aware of any earmarks in the bill and the waiver is, therefore, 
prophylactic in nature. The Committee is not aware of any 
points of order against provisions of the bill. The waiver of 
all points of order against provisions of the bill is 
prophylactic in nature.
