                Mr. Cole, from the Committee on Rules, 
                        submitted the following

                              R E P O R T

                       [To accompany H. Res. 99]

    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 99, by a record vote of 9 to 4, 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. 933, the 
Department of Defense, Military Construction and Veterans 
Affairs, and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013 
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 Appropriations. The 
resolution waives all points of order against consideration of 
the bill. The resolution provides that the amendment printed in 
this report 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 
the bill includes a waiver of section 302(f) of the 
Congressional Budget Act, prohibiting consideration of 
legislation providing new budget authority in excess of a 
committee's 302 allocations of such authority.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
provisions in the bill, as amended, the Committee is not aware 
of any points of order. The waiver is prophylactic in nature.

                            COMMITTEE VOTES
