                              R E P O R T

                       [To accompany H. Res. 564]

    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 564, 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 consideration of H.R. 4378, 
making continuing appropriations for fiscal year 2020, and for 
other purposes, under a closed rule. The resolution provides 
one hour of general 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 bill. The resolution provides that 
the bill shall be considered as read. The resolution waives all 
points of order against provisions in the bill. The resolution 
provides one motion to recommit.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
the bill includes waivers of the following:
     Clause 10 of rule XXI, which prohibits 
consideration of a measure that has a net effect of increasing 
the deficit or reducing the surplus over the five- or 10-year 
period.
     Clause 11 of rule XXI, which prohibits 
consideration of a bill which has not been reported by a 
committee until such measure has been available to Members, 
Delegates, and the Resident Commissioner for 72 hours.
     Clause 12(a)(1) of rule XXI, which prohibits 
consideration of a bill unless there is a searchable electronic 
comparative print that shows how the bill proposes to change 
current law.
     Section 302(f) of the Congressional Budget Act, 
which prohibits consideration of legislation providing new 
budget authority in excess of a 302(a) or 302(b) allocation of 
such authority.
     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, except when a declaration 
of war by the Congress is in effect.
    Although the rule waives all points of order against 
provisions in the bill, the Committee is not aware of any 
points of order. The waiver is prophylactic in nature.
