                       [To accompany H. Res. 741]

    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 741, by a nonrecord vote, report the same to 
the House with the recommendation that the resolution be 
adopted.

                SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS OF THE RESOLUTION

    The resolution provides for consideration of H. Res. 734, 
expressing the sense of the House of Representatives regarding 
the withholding of information relating to corruption in Iraq, 
under a closed rule providing one hour of debate in the House 
equally divided and controlled by the chairman and ranking 
minority member of the Committee on Oversight and Government 
Reform. The rule waives all points of order against 
consideration of the resolution and provides that the 
resolution shall be considered as read. The rule provides one 
motion to recommit which may not contain instructions.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

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