                       [To accompany H. Res. 266]

    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 266, 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. 1947, the 
Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act of 2013. The 
resolution provides one hour of general debate equally divided 
and controlled by the chair and ranking minority member of the 
Committee on Agriculture. The resolution waives all points of 
order against consideration of the bill. The resolution 
provides that after general debate, the Committee of the Whole 
shall rise without motion and no further consideration of the 
bill may be in order except pursuant to a subsequent order of 
the House.
    Section 2 of the resolution provides for the consideration 
of H.R. 1797, the District of Columbia Pain-Capable Unborn 
Child Protection Act, under a closed rule. The resolution 
provides one hour of debate equally divided and controlled by 
the chair and ranking minority member of the Committee on the 
Judiciary. The resolution waives all points of order against 
consideration of the bill. The resolution provides that an 
amendment in the nature of a substitute consisting of the text 
of Rules Committee Print 113-15 shall be considered as adopted 
and the bill, as amended, shall be considered as read. The 
resolution waives all points of order against provisions in the 
bill, as amended. The resolution provides one motion to 
recommit with or without instructions.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
H.R. 1947 includes a waiver of section 302(f) of the 
Congressional Budget Act of 1974, which prohibits consideration 
of legislation providing new budget authority in excess of a 
committee's 302(a) allocation for the first fiscal year or the 
total of fiscal years.
    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
H.R. 1797 includes a waiver of clause 3(d) of rule XIII, which 
requires the inclusion of a committee cost estimate.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
provisions in H.R. 1797, as amended, the Committee is not aware 
of any points of order. The waiver is prophylactic in nature.
