        authorized to consider a joint resolution reports it to the 
        House of Representatives or has been discharged from its 
        consideration, it shall be in order, not later than the sixth 
        day after introduction of a joint resolution under paragraph 
        (1), to move to proceed to consider the joint resolution in the

        motion are waived. Such a motion shall not be in order after 
        the House of Representatives has disposed of a motion to 
        proceed on a joint resolution. The previous question shall be 
        considered as ordered on the motion to its adoption without 
        intervening motion. The motion shall not be debatable. A motion 
        to reconsider the vote by which the motion is disposed of shall

        hours of debate equally divided and controlled by the proponent 
        and an opponent. A motion to reconsider the vote on passage of 
        the joint resolution shall not be in order.
        (3) Expedited procedure in senate.--
            (A) Reconvening.--Upon receipt of a certification under 
        subsection (b), if the Senate would otherwise be adjourned, the 
        majority leader of the Senate, after consultation with the 
        minority leader of the Senate, shall notify the Members of the 
        Senate that, pursuant to this subsection, the Senate shall

        Senate, the joint resolution shall be immediately placed on the 
        calendar.

            Standing Rules of the Senate, it is in order at any time 
            during the period beginning on the day after the date on

            (b) and ending on the 6th day after the date of 
            introduction of a joint resolution under paragraph (1) 
            (even if a previous motion to the same effect has been 
            disagreed to) to move to proceed to the consideration of 
            the joint resolution, and all points of order against the 
            joint resolution (and against consideration of the joint 
            resolution) are waived. The motion to proceed is not 
            debatable. The motion is not subject to a motion to 
            postpone. A motion to reconsider the vote by which the 
            motion is agreed to or disagreed to shall not be in order. 
            If a motion to proceed to the consideration of the joint 
            resolution is agreed to, the joint resolution shall remain 
            the unfinished business until disposed of.
                (ii) Consideration.--Consideration of the joint 
            resolution, and on all debatable motions and appeals in 
            connection therewith, shall be limited to not more than 10 
            hours, which shall be divided equally between the majority 
            and minority leaders or their designees. A motion further 
            to limit debate is in order and not debatable. An amendment 
            to, or a motion to postpone, or a motion to proceed to the 
            consideration of other business, or a motion to recommit 
            the joint resolution is not in order.
                (iii) Vote on passage.--If the Senate has voted to 
            proceed to a joint resolution, the vote on passage of the 
            joint resolution shall occur immediately following the 
            conclusion of consideration of the joint resolution, and a 
            single quorum call at the conclusion of the debate if

            the rules of the Senate, as the case may be, to the 
            procedure relating to a joint resolution shall be decided 
            without debate.
        (4) Amendment not in order.--A joint resolution of disapproval 
    considered pursuant to this subsection shall not be subject to 
    amendment in either the House of Representatives or the Senate.
        (5) Coordination with action by other house.--

                (i) the joint resolution of the other House shall not 
            be referred to a committee; and
                (ii) the procedure in the receiving House shall be the 
            same as if no joint resolution had been received from the 
            other House, except that the vote on passage shall be on 
            the joint resolution of the other House.
            (B) Treatment of joint resolution of other house.--If the 
        Senate fails to introduce or consider a joint resolution under 
        this subsection, the joint resolution of the House of 
        Representatives shall be entitled to expedited floor procedures 
        under this subsection.
            (C) Treatment of companion measures.--If, following passage 
        of the joint resolution in the Senate, the Senate then receives 
        the companion measure from the House of Representatives, the 
        companion measure shall not be debatable.
            (D) Consideration after passage.--
                (i) In general.--If Congress passes a joint resolution, 
            the period beginning on the date the President is presented 
            with the joint resolution and ending on the date the 
            President signs, allows to become law without his 
            signature, or vetoes and returns the joint resolution (but 
            excluding days when either House is not in session) shall 
            be disregarded in computing the calendar day period 
            described in subsection (d).
                (ii) Debate on a veto message.--Debate on a veto 
            message in the Senate under this subsection shall be 1 hour 
            equally divided between the majority and minority leaders 
            or their designees.
        (6) Rules of house of representatives and senate.--This 
    subsection is enacted by Congress--
            (A) as an exercise of the rulemaking power of the Senate 
        and House of Representatives, respectively, and as such it is 
        deemed a part of the rules of each House, respectively, but 
        applicable only with respect to the procedure to be followed in 
        that House in the case of a joint resolution, and it supersedes 
        other rules only to the extent that it is inconsistent with 
        such rules; and
            (B) with full recognition of the constitutional right of 
        either House to change the rules (so far as relating to the 
        procedure of that House) at any time, in the same manner, and 
        to the same extent as in the case of any other rule of that 
        House.
     This Act may be cited as the ``Continuing Appropriations Act, 
2014''.
