    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 532, 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 the consideration of the Senate 
amendment to H.R. 1256, the ``Family Smoking Prevention and 
Tobacco Control Act.'' The resolution makes in order a motion 
offered by the chair of the Committee on Energy and Commerce or 
his designee that the House concur in the Senate amendment to 
H.R. 1256. The resolution waives all points of order against 
consideration of the motion except those arising under clause 
10 of rule XXI. The resolution provides that the Senate 
amendment shall be considered as read. The resolution provides 
one hour of debate on the motion equally divided and controlled 
by the chair and ranking minority member of the Committee on 
Energy and Commerce.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    Although the rule waives all points of order against 
consideration of the motion (except those arising under clause 
10 of rule XXI), the Committee is not aware of any points of 
order against the motion. The waiver of all points of order 
(except those arising under clause 10 of rule XXI) is 
prophylactic.
