                              R E P O R T

                       [To accompany H. Res. 530]

    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 530, by a record vote of 8 to 3, 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. 2575, the 
Save American Workers Act of 2014, under a closed rule. The 
resolution provides three hours of debate equally divided and 
controlled by the chair and ranking minority member of the 
Committee on Ways and Means. The resolution waives all points 
of order against consideration of the bill. The resolution 
provides that the amendment in the nature of a substitute 
recommended by the Committee on Ways and Means now printed in 
the bill 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 waivers of the following:
    
 Clause 10 of rule XXI, prohibiting the 
consideration of a bill if it has the net effect of increasing 
mandatory spending over the five-year or ten-year period.
    
 Section 302(f) of the Congressional Budget Act, 
prohibiting consideration of legislation providing new budget 
authority in excess of a 302(a) or 302(b) allocation of such 
authority.
    
 Section 303 of the Congressional Budget Act, 
prohibiting consideration of legislation, as reported, 
providing new budget authority, change in revenues, change in 
public debt, new entitlement authority or new credit authority 
for a fiscal year until the budget resolution for that year has 
been agreed to.
    
 Section 311 of the Congressional Budget Act, 
prohibiting consideration of legislation that would cause the 
level of total new budget authority for the first fiscal year 
to be exceeded, or would cause revenues to be less than the 
level of total revenues for the first fiscal year or for the 
total of that first fiscal year and the ensuing fiscal years 
for which allocations are provided.
    
 Section 604 of H. Con. Res. 25, prohibiting the 
consideration of legislation reported by a committee (other 
than the Committee on Appropriations) if the provisions of such 
measure have the net effect of increasing direct spending in 
excess of $5 billion for any of the four consecutive ten 
fiscal-year periods beginning with fiscal year 2024.
    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.
