                SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS OF THE RESOLUTION

    The resolution provides for consideration of H. Res. 965, 
authorizing remote voting by proxy in the House of 
Representatives and providing for official remote committee 
proceedings during a public health emergency due to a novel 
coronavirus, and for other purposes under a closed rule. The 
resolution provides that upon adoption of this resolution it 
shall be in order without intervention of any point of order to 
consider H. Res. 965. The resolution provides one hour of 
general debate equally divided and controlled by the chair and 
ranking minority member of the Committee on Rules. The 
resolution provides that H. Res. 965 shall be considered as 
read. The resolution provides for consideration of H.R. 6800, 
the Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions 
Act, under a closed rule. The resolution provides that upon 
adoption of this resolution it shall be in order to consider 
H.R. 6800 without intervention of any question of 
consideration. The resolution provides two hours 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 amendment printed in 
this report shall be considered as adopted and the bill, as 
amended, shall be considered as read. The resolution waives all 
points of order against provisions in the bill, as amended. The 
resolution provides that clause 2(e) of rule XXI shall not 
apply during consideration of the bill. The resolution provides 
one motion to recommit with or without instructions. The 
resolution provides that until completion of proceedings 
enabled by the first two sections of the resolution, (a) the 
Chair may decline to entertain any intervening motion (except 
as expressly provided herein), resolution, question, or notice; 
and (b) the Chair may decline to entertain the question of 
consideration. Section 4 of the resolution provides that on any 
legislative day during the period from May 19, 2020, through 
July 21, 2020: the Journal of the proceedings of the previous 
day shall be considered as approved; and the Chair may at any 
time declare the House adjourned to meet at a date and time to 
be announced by the Chair in declaring the adjournment. The 
resolution provides that the Speaker may appoint Members to 
perform the duties of the Chair for the duration of the period 
addressed by section 4 of the resolution. The resolution 
provides that each day during the periods addressed by section 
4 shall not constitute a calendar day for the purposes of 
section 7 of the War Powers Resolution (50 U.S.C. 1546). The 
resolution provides that each day during the period addressed 
by section 4 of the resolution shall not constitute a 
legislative day for purposes of clause 7 of rule XIII 
(resolutions of inquiry). The resolution provides that each day 
during the period addressed by section 4 of the resolution 
shall not constitute a calendar or legislative day for the 
purposes of clause 7(c)(1) of rule XXII (motions to instruct 
conferees). The resolution provides that each day during the 
period addressed by section 4 shall not constitute a 
legislative day for the purposes of clause 7 of rule XV 
(Consensus Calendar). The resolution provides for consideration 
of concurrent resolutions providing for adjournment during the 
month of July, 2020. The resolution provides that it shall be 
in order at any time through the calendar day of July 19, 2020, 
for the Speaker to entertain motions that the House suspend the 
rules as though under clause 1 of rule XV, and that the Speaker 
or her designee shall consult with the Minority Leader or his 
designee on the designation of any matter for consideration 
pursuant to this section. The resolution waives the requirement 
of clause 6(a) of rule XIII for a two-thirds vote to consider a 
report from the Committee on Rules on the same day it is 
presented to the House with respect to any resolution reported 
through the legislative day of July 21, 2020.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
H. Res. 965 includes a waiver of clause 4 of rule XIII, which 
prohibits the consideration of a measure or matter reported by 
a committee until the proposed text of the report has been 
available for 72 hours.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
provisions in H. Res. 965, the Committee is not aware of any 
points of order. The waiver is prophylactic in nature.
    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
H.R. 6800 includes a waiver of 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.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
provisions in H.R. 6800, as amended, the Committee is not aware 
of any points of order. The waiver is prophylactic in nature.
    Section 10 of the resolution includes a waiver of all 
points of order against consideration of a July adjournment 
resolution. While adjournment resolutions are ordinarily 
privileged, a point of order could be raised against a July 
adjournment resolution for failure to comply with section 309 
of the Congressional Budget Act. Section 309 prohibits the 
House from adjourning for more than three days in July unless 
the House has completed action on all appropriations bills. 
Since the House has not yet completed all action on 
appropriations bills, this provision is necessary.

                    STUDY ON COVID-19 DISINFORMATION

  Sec. 10202. 
  (a) Study.--No later than 30 days after the date of enactment 
of this Act, the Director of the National Science Foundation 
shall enter into an arrangement with the National Academies of 
Science, Engineering, and Medicine (National Academies) to 
conduct a study on the current understanding of the spread of 
COVID-19-related disinformation on the internet and social 
media platforms. The study shall address the following:
          (1) the role disinformation and misinformation has 
        played in the public response to COVID-19;
          (2) the sources of COVID-19-related disinformation--
        both foreign and domestic--and the mechanisms by which 
        that disinformation influences the public debate;
          (3) the role social media plays in the dissemination 
        and promotion of COVID-19 disinformation and 
        misinformation content and the role social media 
        platforms play in the organization of groups seeking to 
        spread COVID-19 disinformation;
          (4) the potential financial returns for creators or 
        distributors of COVID-19 disinformation, and the role 
        such financial incentives play in the propagation of 
        COVID-19 disinformation;
          (5) potential strategies to mitigate the 
        dissemination and negative impacts of COVID-19 
        disinformation, including specifically, the 
        dissemination of disinformation on social media, 
        including through improved disclosures; and
          (6) an analysis of the limitations of these 
        mitigation strategies, and an analysis of how these 
        strategies can be implemented without infringing on 
        Americans' Constitutional rights and civil liberties.
  (b) Report.--In entering into an arrangement under this 
section, the Director shall request that the National Academies 
transmit to Congress a report on the results of the study not 
later than 12 months after the date of enactment of this Act.
  (c) Authorization.--There is authorized to be appropriated 
for the purposes of conducting the study in this section 
$1,000,000.

        health, protection of the environment, and protection 
        of national security;
          (2) the public must be able to trust the science and 
        scientific process informing public policy decisions;
          (3) science, the scientific process, and the 
        communication of science should be free from politics, 
        ideology, and financial conflicts of interest;
          (4) policies and procedures that ensure the integrity 
        of the conduct and communication of publicly funded 
        science are critical to ensuring public trust;
          (5) a Federal agency that funds, conducts, or 
        oversees research should not suppress, alter, interfere 
        with, or otherwise impede the timely communication and 
        open exchange of data and findings to other agencies, 
        policymakers, and the public of research conducted by a 
        scientist or engineer employed or contracted by a 
        Federal agency that funds, conducts, or oversees 
        scientific research;
          (6) Federal agencies that fund, conduct, or oversee 
        research should work to prevent the suppression or 
        distortion of the data and findings;

        citizens of the United States have the right to 
        ``petition the government for a redress of 
        grievances''; and
          (8) Congress has further protected those rights under 
        section 7211 of title 5, United States Code, which 
        states, ``the right of employees, individually or 
        collectively, to petition Congress or a member of
