    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 281, by a record vote of 9 to 3, 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. 1585, the 
Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2019, under a 
structured rule. The resolution provides one hour of general 
debate equally divided and controlled by the chair and ranking 
minority member of the Committee on the Judiciary. The 
resolution waives all points of order against consideration of 
the bill. The resolution makes in order as original text for 
the purpose of amendment an amendment in the nature of a 
substitute consisting of the text of Rules Committee Print 116-
9, modified by the amendment printed in part A of this report, 
and provides that it shall be considered as read.
    The resolution waives all points of order against that 
amendment in the nature of a substitute. The resolution makes 
in order only those further amendments printed in part B of 
this report. Each such amendment may be offered only in the 
order printed in this report, may be offered only by a Member 
designated in this report, shall be considered as read, shall 
be debatable for the time specified in this report equally 
divided and controlled by the proponent and an opponent, shall 
not be subject to amendment, and shall not be subject to a 
demand for division of the question in the House or the 
Committee of the Whole. The resolution waives all points of 
order against the amendments printed in part B of this report. 
The resolution provides one motion to recommit with or without 
instructions.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
the bill includes waivers of the following:
           Clause 3(d) of rule XIII, which requires the 
        inclusion of a committee cost estimate in a committee 
        report.
           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 12(b) of rule XXI, which prohibits 
        consideration of a bill unless there is a searchable 
        electronic comparative print that shows how the text of 
        the bill as proposed to be considered differs from the 
        text of the bill as reported.
           Section 303 of the Congressional Budget Act, 
        which prohibits consideration of legislation, as 
        reported, providing new budget authority, change in 
        revenues, change in public debt, new entitlement 
        authority or new credit authority for a fiscal year 
        until the budget resolution for that year has been 
        agreed to.
    The waiver of all points of order against the amendment in 
the nature of a substitute made in order as original text, as 
amended, includes waivers of the following:
           Clause 5(a) of rule XXI, which prohibits a 
        bill or joint resolution carrying a tax or tariff 
        measure from being reported by a committee not having 
        jurisdiction to report tax or tariff measures.
           Clause 12(a)(2) of rule XXI, which prohibits 
        consideration of an amendment in the nature of a 
        substitute unless there is a searchable electronic 
        comparative print that shows how the amendment in the 
        nature of a substitute proposes to change current law.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
the amendments printed in part B of this report, the Committee 
is not aware of any points of order. The waiver is prophylactic 
in nature.

        violence should impact how that act is accounted for in 
        reports.

        that allows the general public to understand what acts 
        of sexual violence are included in each measurement.
