    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 305, 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 the consideration of the Senate 
amendments to H.R. 244, the HIRE Vets Act. The resolution makes 
in order a single motion offered by the chair of the Committee 
on Appropriations or his designee that the House concur in the 
Senate amendments numbered 2 and 3, and that the House concur 
in the Senate amendment numbered 1 with an amendment consisting 
of the text of Rules Committee Print 115-16 modified by the 
amendment printed in this report. The resolution waives all 
points of order against consideration of the motion and 
provides that it shall not be subject to a demand for division 
of the question. The resolution provides that the Senate 
amendments and the motion shall be considered as read. The 
resolution provides one hour of debate on the motion equally 
divided and controlled by the chair and ranking minority member 
of the Committee on Appropriations.
    Section 2 of the resolution provides that the chair of the 
Committee on Appropriations may insert in the Congressional 
Record not later than May 3, 2017, such material as he may deem 
explanatory of the Senate amendments and the motion specified 
in section 1 of the resolution.
    Section 3 of the resolution provides that the chair of the 
Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence may insert in the 
Congressional Record not later than May 3, 2017, such material 
as he may deem explanatory of intelligence authorization 
measures for the fiscal year 2017.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
the motion includes a waiver of the following:
           Section 303 of the Congressional Budget Act, 
        which prohibits consideration of legislation, providing 
        a change in revenues for a fiscal year until the budget 
        resolution for that year has been agreed to;
           Section 306 of the Congressional Budget Act, 
        which prohibits consideration of legislation within the 
        jurisdiction of the Committee on the Budget unless 
        referred to or reported by the Budget Committee;
           Section 311 of the Congressional Budget Act, 
        which prohibits consideration of legislation that would 
        cause the level of total new budget authority for the 
        first fiscal year to be exceeded;
           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;
           Clause 10 of rule XXI, which prohibits the 
        consideration of a bill if it has the net effect of 
        increasing mandatory spending over the five-year or 
        ten-year period. It is important to note that while 
        there is a violation over five years, the bill is fully 
        offset over the 10 year window; and
           Section 3103 of S. Con. Res. 11, 114th 
        Congress, which prohibits changes in mandatory programs 
        in a bill making appropriations for a full fiscal year 
        that, if enacted, would exceed the $19,100,000 limit 
        for fiscal year 2017.
