                              R E P O R T

                       [To accompany H. Res. 289]

    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 289, by a record vote of 8 to 2, 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.J. Res. 99, 
making further continuing appropriations for fiscal year 2017, 
and for other purposes, under a closed rule. The resolution 
provides one hour of debate equally divided and controlled by 
the chair and ranking minority member of the Committee on 
Appropriations. The resolution waives all points of order 
against consideration of the joint resolution. The resolution 
provides that the joint resolution shall be considered as read. 
The resolution waives all points of order against provisions in 
the joint resolution. The resolution provides one motion to 
recommit.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
the joint resolution includes a waiver of the following:
           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; and
           Section 314 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.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
provisions in the joint resolution, the Committee is not aware 
of any points of order. The waiver is prophylactic in nature.
