    The resolution provides for the consideration of the Senate

concur in the Senate amendment to the text with an amendment 
consisting of the text of Rules Committee Print 115-56. The

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.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of

        appropriation from a committee not having jurisdiction 
        to report an appropriation.
           Clause 7 of rule XVI, which requires that no

        under consideration shall be admitted under color of 
        amendment.
           302(c) of the Congressional Budget Act,

        Budget Act of 1974.
           Section 302(f) of the Congressional Budget 
        Act, which prohibits consideration of legislation 
        providing new budget authority in excess of a 302(a) 
        allocation of such authority.
           Section 306 of the Congressional Budget Act, 
        which prohibits consideration of legislation within the

        referred to or reported by the Budget Committee.

        which prohibits consideration of legislation that would 
        cause the level of total new budget authority for the 
        first fiscal year to be exceeded; and
           Section 314(f) of the Congressional Budget
