                              R E P O R T

                       [To accompany H. Res. 981]

    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 981, by a record vote of 8 to 4, report the 
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 
amendments to H.R. 6172, the USA FREEDOM Reauthorization Act of 
2020. The resolution makes in order a single motion offered by 
the chair of the Committee on the Judiciary or his designee 
that the House concur in the Senate amendments. The resolution 
waives all points of order against consideration of the motion 
and provides that it shall not be subject to a demand for 
division of the question. The resolution provides that the 
Senate amendments and the motion shall be considered as read. 
The resolution provides one hour of debate on the motion 
equally divided among and controlled by the chair and ranking 
minority member of the Committee on the Judiciary and the chair 
and ranking minority member of the Permanent Select Committee 
on Intelligence. The resolution provides that any motion 
pursuant to clause 4 of rule XXII relating to H.R. 6172 may be 
offered only by the Majority Leader or his designee. The 
resolution provides that if a veto message is laid before the 
House on H.J. Res. 76, then after the message is read, further 
consideration of the veto message and the joint resolution 
shall be postponed until the legislative day of Wednesday, July 
1, 2020; and on that legislative day, the House shall proceed 
to reconsideration and dispose of such question without 
intervening motion.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    Although the rule waives all points of order against 
consideration of the motion and the Senate amendments, the 
Committee is not aware of any points of order. The waiver is 
prophylactic in nature.
