    Ms. Matsui, from the Committee on Rules, submitted the following

                              R E P O R T

                       [To accompany H. Res. 250]

    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 250, by a nonrecord 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. 1388, the 
Generations Invigorating Volunteerism and Education (GIVE) Act, 
under a structured rule. The rule provides one hour of general 
debate equally divided and controlled by the chair and ranking 
minority member of the Committee on Education and Labor. The 
rule waives all points of order against consideration of the 
bill except clauses 9 and 10 of rule XXI. The rule provides 
that the amendment in the nature of a substitute recommended by 
the Committee on Education and Labor now printed in the bill 
shall be considered as an original bill for the purpose of 
amendment and shall be considered as read. The rule waives all 
points of order against the amendment in the nature of a 
substitute except for clause 10 of rule XXI. This waiver does 
not affect the point of order available under clause 9 of rule 
XXI (regarding earmark disclosure).
    The rule makes in order only those amendments printed in 
this report. The amendments made in order may be offered only 
in the order printed in this report, may be offered only by a 
Member designated in this report, shall be considered as read, 
shall be debatable for the time specified in this report 
equally divided and controlled by the proponent and an 
opponent, shall not be subject to amendment, and shall not be 
subject to a demand for a division of the question in the House 
or in the Committee of the Whole. All points of order against 
the amendments except for clauses 9 and 10 of rule XXI are 
waived. The rule provides one motion to recommit with or 
without instructions.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
the bill (except for clauses 9 and 10 of rule XXI) includes a 
waiver of clause 4(a) of rule XIII, requiring a three-day 
layover of the committee report and a waiver of clause 3(d)(2) 
of rule XIII requiring the inclusion of a cost estimate. 
Although the rule waives all points of order against the 
amendment in the nature of a substitute (except clause 10 of 
rule XXI), the Committee is not aware of any points of order. 
The waiver of all points of order is prophylactic.

               SUMMARY OF AMENDMENTS TO BE MADE IN ORDER

    (Summaries derived from information provided by sponsors)
    1. Miller, George (CA): Would make certain technical 
changes; allow interagency agreements between Federal agencies 
to support national service programs by approving the use of 
service positions in projects carried out by other agencies; 
clarify that the goal of reaching 250,000 volunteers is 
throughout all national service positions, not just AmeriCorps; 
and clarify that the Corporation should promote efficiency and 
eliminate duplicative requirements in applications and report 
back to the authorizing committees on its progress in doing so. 
Adds language to promote community based efforts to reduce 
crime and recruit public safety officers into service 
opportunities. Adds ``severely economically distressed 
community'' as a new definition. Includes a new activity under 
the Opportunity Corps focused on a musician and artists corps 
program that helps meet educational needs in low income 
communities. Incorporates language that would increase access 
to and participation in federally supported nutrition programs. 
(30 minutes)

of immediate deployment in case of emergency. (10 minutes)
