   June 15, 2015.--Referred to the House Calendar and ordered to be

                                _______
                                

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

                              R E P O R T

                       [To accompany H. Res. 315]

    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 315, by a 7 to 3 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. 2596, the 
Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016, under a 
structured rule. The resolution provides one hour of general 
debate equally divided and controlled by the chair and ranking 
minority member of the Permanent Select Committee on 
Intelligence. The resolution waives all points of order against 
consideration of the bill. The resolution makes in order as 
original text for purpose of amendment an amendment in the 
nature of a substitute consisting of the text of Rules 
Committee Print 114-19 and provides that it shall be considered 
as read. The resolution waives all points of order against that 
amendment in the nature of a substitute. The resolution makes 
in order only those further amendments printed in this report. 
Each such amendment 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 division of 
the question in the House or in the Committee of the Whole. The 
resolution waives all points of order against the amendments 
printed in this report. The resolution provides one motion to 
recommit with or without instructions.
    Section 2 of the resolution provides that the motion to 
reconsider the vote on the question of concurring in the matter 
comprising the remainder of title II of the Senate amendment to 
H.R. 1314 may continue to be postponed through the legislative 
day of Thursday, July 30, 2015.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
the bill includes a waiver of clause 3(e)(1) of rule XIII 
(``Ramseyer''), requiring a committee report accompanying a 
bill amending or repealing statutes to show, by typographical 
device, parts of statute affected. The waiver is provided 
because the submission provided by the committee was 
insufficient to meet the standards established by the rule in 
its current form. The Committee on Rules continues to work with 
the House Office of Legislative Counsel and committees to 
determine the steps necessary to comply with the updated rule.
    The waiver of all points of order against the amendment in 
the nature of a substitute made in order as original text 
includes a waiver of clause 7 of rule XVI, which requires that 
no motion or proposition on a subject different from that under 
consideration shall be admitted under color of amendment. It is 
important to note that the provisions that make this waiver 
necessary were contained in the bill as reported by the 
Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
the amendments printed in this report, the Committee is not 
aware of any points of order. The waiver is prophylactic in 
nature.
    It is important to note that the estimate provided by the 
Congressional Budget Office (CBO) to the Permanent Select 
Committee on Intelligence and the Committee on the Budget is 
incomplete due to the fact that CBO is only permitted to score 
the unclassified portions of the bill. Because the estimate is 
incomplete, the Chair of the Committee on the Budget is unable 
to accurately advise the Chair on budget related points of 
order.

                            COMMITTEE VOTES

    The results of each record vote on an amendment or motion 
to report, together with the names of those voting for and
