                              R E P O R T

                      [To accompany H. Res. 1776]

    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 1776, 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.J. Res. 105, 
``Making further continuing appropriations for fiscal year 
2011, and for other purposes,'' under a closed rule. The 
resolution provides 1 hour of debate equally divided and 
controlled by the chair and ranking minority member of the 
Committee on Appropriations.
    The resolution waives all points of order against 
consideration of the joint resolution except those arising 
under clause 10 of rule XXI. The resolution provides that the 
joint resolution shall be considered as read. The resolution 
waives all points of order against the joint resolution. 
Finally, the resolution provides one motion to recommit with or 
without instructions.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
the joint resolution (except those arising under clause 10 of 
rule XXI) includes a waiver of clause 9 of rule XXI (regarding 
earmark disclosure).
    Although the rule waives all points of order against the 
joint resolution, the Committee is not aware of any points of 
order against the joint resolution. The waiver of all points of 
order against the joint resolution is prophylactic.
