                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
H.R. 1737 includes a waiver of a 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.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
provisions in H.R. 1737, the Committee is not aware of any 
points of order. The waiver is prophylactic in nature.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
amendments to H.R. 1737 printed in this report, the Committee 
is not aware of any points of order. The waiver is prophylactic 
in nature.
    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
H.R. 511 includes a waiver of a clause 3(e)(1) of rule XIII 
(``Ramseyer''), requiring a committee report accompanying a 
bill amending or repealing statutes to show, by typographical

provisions in H.R. 511, as amended, the Committee is not aware 
of any points of order. The waiver is prophylactic in nature.
    The waivers of clause 3(e)(1) of rule XIII are provided 
because the submissions provided by the Committees on Financial

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.
