                            3. PRIVATECALENDAR

  Rule XIII, clause 1(a):


  ``(3) A Private Calendar as provided in clause 5 of rule XV, to which shall
 be referred all private bills and private resolutions.''


  Rule XV, clause 5:


  ``5. (a) On the first Tuesday of a month, the Speaker shall direct the Clerk
 to call the bills and resolutions on the Private Calendar after disposal of
 such business on the Speaker's table as requires reference only. If two or
 more Members, Delegates, or the Resident Commissioner object to the
 consideration of a bill or resolution so called, it shall be recommitted to
 the committee that reported it. No other business shall be in order before
 completion of the call  of the Private Calendar on this day unless two-thirds
 of the Members voting, a quorum being present, agree to a motion that the
 House dispense with the call.

 ``(b)(1) On the third Tuesday of  month, after the disposal of such business
 on the Speaker's table as requires reference only, the Speaker may direct the
 Clerk to call the bills and resolutions on the Private Calendar. Preference
 shall be given to omnibus bills containing the texts of bills or resolutions
 that have previously been objected to on a call of the Private Calendar. If
 two or more Members, Delegates, or the Resident Commissioner object to the
 consideration of a bill or resolution so called (other than on omnibus bill),
 it shall be recommitted to the committee that reported it. Two-thirds of the
 Members voting, a quorum being present, may adopt a motion that the House
 dispense with the call on this day.

 ``(2) Omnibus bills shall be read for amendment by paragraph. No amendment
 shall be in order except to strike or to reduce amounts of money or to 
 provide limitations. An item or matter stricken from an omnibus bill may
 not thereafter during the same session of Congress be included in an
 omnibus bill.

  Upon passage such an omnibus bill shall be resolved into the several
 bills and  resolutions of which it is composed. The several bills and
 resolutions, with any amendments adopted by the House, shall be engrossed,
 when necessary, and  otherwise considered as passed severally by the House
 as distinct bills and resolutions.

 ``(c) The Speaker may not entertain a reservation of the right to object to
 the consideration of a bill or resolution under this clause. A bill or
 resolution considered under this clause shall be considered in the House as
 in the Committee of the Whole. A motion to dispense with the call of the
 Private Calendar under this clause shall be privileged. Debate on such a
 motion shall be limited to five minutes in support and five minutes in
 opposition.''
