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 
amendment to H.R. 1892, the Honoring Hometown Heroes Act 
[Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018]. The resolution makes in order 
a motion offered by the chair of the Committee on 
Appropriations or his designee that the House concur in the 
Senate amendment to H.R. 1892. The resolution waives all points 
of order against consideration of the motion. The resolution 
provides that the Senate amendment 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 
the motion includes a waiver of the following:
           Section 302(c) of the Congressional Budget 
        Act, which prohibits consideration of a measure until 
        the Committee on Appropriations has made the 
        suballocations required under section 302(b) of the 
        Congressional Budget Act;
           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 
        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, 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 314(f) of the Congressional Budget 
        Act, which prohibits the consideration of legislation 
        that provides budget authority for a fiscal year that 
        exceeds either of the discretionary statutory spending 
        limits; and
           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. The Senate amendment increases over 
        five years, but decreases over ten years.
