                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
H.R. 51 includes waivers of the following:
           Section 302(f)(1) 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.
           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.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
provisions in H.R. 51, as amended, the Committee is not aware 
of any points of order. The waiver is prophylactic in nature.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
consideration of H.R. 1573, the Committee is not aware of any 
points of order. The waiver is prophylactic in nature.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
provisions in H.R. 1573, as amended, 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. 1333 includes a waiver of clause 3(d)(1) of rule XIII, 
which requires the inclusion of committee cost estimate in a 
committee report. A CBO cost estimate on H.R. 1333 was not 
available at the time the Committee on the Judiciary filed its 
report; however, the CBO cost estimate was submitted for 
printing in the Congressional Record on April 20.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
provisions in H.R. 1333, as amended, the Committee is not aware 
of any points of order. The waiver is prophylactic in nature.
