               THE MORNING HOUR FOR THE CALL OF COMMITTEES

        Rule XIV, clause 4:
        ``4. After the unfinished business has been disposed of, the 
Speaker shall call each standing committee in regular order and then 
select committees. Each committee when named may call up for 
consideration a bill or resolution reported by it on a previous day and 
on the House Calendar. If the Speaker does not complete the call of the 
committees before the House passes to other business, the next call 
shall resume at the point it left off, giving preference to the last 
bill or resolution under consideration. A committee that has occupied 
the call for two days may not call up another bill or resolution until 
the other committees have been called in their turn.''
        Note.--Call rests with the Committee on Agriculture.

                       CALENDAR WEDNESDAY BUSINESS

        Rule XV, clause 6:
        ``6. (a) On Wednesday of each week, business shall not be in 
order before completion of the call of those committees (except as 
provided by clause 4 of rule XIV) whose chair, or other member 
authorized by the committee, has announced to the House a request for 
such call on the preceding legislative day.
        (b) A bill or resolution on either the House or the Union 
Calendar, except bills or resolutions that are privileged under the 
Rules of the House, may be called under this clause. A bill or 
resolution called up from the Union Calendar shall be considered in the 
Committee of the Whole House on the state of the Union without motion, 
subject to clause 3 of rule XVI. General debate on a measure considered 
under this clause shall be confined to the measure and may not exceed 
two hours equally divided between a proponent and an opponent.
        (c) This clause does not apply during the last two weeks of a 
session of Congress.''
        Note.--Call rests with the Committee on Agriculture.
