              1. Executive Reorganization [5 U.S.C. 902-12]


                          Sec. 902. definitions

  For the purpose of this chapter--

          (1) ``agency'' means--

                  (A) an Executive agency or part thereof; and

                  (B) an office or officer in the executive branch;

        but does include the General Accounting Office or the 

        Comptroller General of the United States;

          (2) ``reorganization'' means a transfer, consolidation, 

        coordination, authorization, or abolition, referred to in 

        section 903 of this title; and


          (3) ``officer'' is not limited by section 2104 of this title.


  The General Accounting Office is now designated the Government 
Accountability Office (31 U.S.C. 702 note).


                                                            Sec. 1130(1)


                     Sec. 903. reorganization plans

  (a) Whenever the President, after investigation, finds that changes in 
the organization of agencies are necessary to carry out any policy set 
forth in section 901(a) of this title, he shall prepare a reorganization 
plan specifying the reorganizations he finds are necessary. Any plan may 
provide for--

          (1) the transfer of the whole or a part of an agency, or of 

        the whole or a part of the functions thereof, to the 

        jurisdiction and control of another agency;

          (2) the abolition of all or a part of the functions of an 

        agency, except that no enforcement function or statutory program 

        shall be abolished by the plan;

          (3) the consolidation or coordination of the whole or a part 

        of an agency, or of the whole part of the functions thereof, 

        with the whole or a part of another agency or the functions 

        thereof;

          (4) the consolidation or coordination of a part of an agency 

        or the functions thereof with another part of the same agency or 

        the functions thereof;

          (5) the authorization of an officer to delegate any of his 

        functions; or

          (6) the abolition of the whole or a part of an agency which 

        agency or part does not have, or on the taking effect of the 


[[Page 1063]]

The President shall transmit the plan (bearing an identification number) 
to the Congress together with a declaration that, with respect to each 
reorganization included in the plan, he has found that the 
reorganization is necessary to carry out any policy set forth in section 
901(a) of this title.
        reorganization plan will not have, any functions.

  (b) The President shall have a reorganization plan delivered to both 
Houses on the same day and to each House while it is in session, except 
that no more than three plans may be pending before the Congress at one 
time. In his message transmitting a reorganization plan, the President 
shall specify with respect to each abolition of a function included in 
the plan the statutory authority for the exercise of the function. The 
message shall also estimate any reduction or increase in expenditures 
(itemized so far as practicable), and describe any improvements in 
management, delivery of Federal services, execution of the laws, and 
increases in efficiency of Government operations, which it is expected 
will be realized as a result of the reorganizations included in the 
plan. In addition, the President's message shall include an 
implementation section which shall (1) describe in detail (A) the 
actions necessary or planned to complete the reorganization, (B) the 
anticipated nature and substance of any orders, directives, and other 
administrative and operational actions which are expected to be required 
for completing or implementing the reorganization, and (C) any 
preliminary actions which have been taken in the implementation process, 
and (2) contain a projected timetable for completion of the 
implementation process. The President shall also submit such further 
background or other information as the Congress may require for its 
consideration of the plan.


[[Page 1064]]

  (c) Any time during the period of 60 calendar days of continuous 
session of Congress after the date on which the plan is transmitted to 
it, but before any resolution described in section 909 has been ordered 
reported in either House, the President may make amendments or 
modifications to the plan, consistent with sections 903-905 of this 
title, which modifications or revisions shall thereafter be treated as a 
part of the reorganization plan originally transmitted and shall not 
affect in any way the time limits otherwise provided for in this 
chapter. The President may withdraw the plan any time prior to the 
conclusion of 90 calendar days of continuous session of Congress 
following the date on which the plan is submitted to Congress.

                     Sec. 905. limitations on powers

  (a) A reorganization plan may not provide for, and a reorganization 
under this chapter may not have the effect of--

          (1) creating a new executive department or renaming an 

        existing executive department, abolishing or transferring an 

        executive department or independent regulatory agency, or all 

        the functions thereof, or consolidating two or more executive 

        departments or two or more independent regulatory agencies, or 

        all the functions thereof;

          (2) continuing an agency beyond the period authorized by law 

        for its existence or beyond the time when it would have 

        terminated if the reorganization had not been made;

          (3) continuing a function beyond the period authorized by law 

        for its exercise or beyond the time when it would have 

        terminated if the reorganization had not been made;

          (4) authorizing an agency to exercise a function which is not 

        expressly authorized by law at the time the plan is transmitted 

        to Congress;

          (5) creating a new agency which is not a component or part of 

        an existing executive department or independent agency;

          (6) increasing the term of an office beyond that provided by 

        law for the office; or

          (7) dealing with more than one logically consistent subject 

        matter.

    Sec. 906. effective date and publication of reorganization plans


[[Page 1065]]

session of Congress after the date on which the plan is transmitted to 
Congress. Failure of either House to act upon such resolution by the end 
of such period shall be the same as disapproval of the resolution.
  (a) Except as provided under subsection (c) of this section, a 
reorganization plan shall be effective upon approval by the President of 
a resolution (as defined in section 909) with respect to such plan, if 
such resolution is passed by the House of Representatives and the 
Senate, within the first period of 90 calendar days of continuous

  (b) For the purpose of this chapter--

          (1) continuity of session is broken only by an adjournment of 

        Congress sine die; and

          (2) the days on which either House is not in session because 

        of an adjournment of more than three days to a day certain are 

        excluded in the computation of any period of time in which 

        Congress is in continuous session.

  (c) Under provisions contained in a reorganization plan, any provision 
thereof may be effective at a time later than the date on which the plan 
otherwise is effective.


  (d) A reorganization plan which is effective shall be printed (1) in 
the Statutes at Large in the same volume as the public laws and (2) in 
the Federal Register.


Sec. 908. rules of senate and house of representatives on reorganization 
                                  * * *


                                  plans

  Sections 909 through 912 of this title are enacted by Congress--

          (1) as an exercise of the rulemaking power of the Senate and 

        the House of Representatives, respectively, and as such they are 

        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 resolutions with respect to any 

        reorganization plans transmitted to Congress (in accordance with 

        section 903(b) of this chapter) on or before December 31, 1984; 

        and they supersede other rules only to the extent that they are 

        inconsistent therewith; and

          (2) 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 



[[Page 1066]]



        the same extent as in the case of any other rule of that House.


                      Sec. 909. terms of resolution


  For the purpose of sections 908 through 912 of this title, 
``resolution'' means only a joint resolution of the Congress, the matter 
after the resolving clause of which is as follows: ``That the ------ 
Congress approves the reorganization plan numbered ------ transmitted to 
the Congress by the President on ------, 19--.'', and includes such 
modifications and revisions as submitted by the President under section 
903(c) of this chapter. The blank spaces therein are to be filled 
appropriately. The term does not include a resolution which specifies 
more than one reorganization plan.


           Sec. 910. introduction and reference of resolution

  (a) No later than the first day of session following the day on which 
a reorganization plan is transmitted to the House of Representatives and 
the Senate under section 903, a resolution, as defined in section 909, 
shall be introduced (by request) in the House by the chairman of the 
Committee on Government Reform of the House, or by a Member of Members 
of the House designated by such chairman; and shall be introduced (by 
request) in the Senate by the chairman of the Governmental Affairs 
Committee of the Senate, or by a Member or Members of the Senate 
designated by such chairman.


  (b) A resolution with respect to a reorganization plan shall be 
referred to the Committee on Governmental Affairs of the Senate and the 
Committee on Government Reform of the House (and all resolutions with 
respect to the same plan shall be referred to the same committee) by the 
President of the Senate or the Speaker of the House of Representatives, 
as the case may be. The committee shall make its recommendations to the 
House of Representatives or the Senate, respectively, within 75 calendar 
days of continuous session of Congress following the date of such 
resolution's introduction.


         Sec. 911. discharge of committee considering resolution


[[Page 1067]]

not reported such resolution or identical resolution at the end of 75 
calendar days of continuous session of Congress after its introduction, 
such committee shall be deemed to be discharged from further 
consideration of such resolution and such resolution shall be placed on 
the appropriate calendar of the House involved.

Sec. 912. procedure after report or discharge of committee; debate; vote 
  If the committee to which is referred a resolution introduced pursuant 
to subsection (a) of section 910 (or, in the absence of such a 
resolution, the first resolution introduced with respect to the same 
reorganization plan) has


                            on final passage

  (a) When the committee has reported, or has been deemed to be 
discharged (under section 911) from further consideration of, a 
resolution with respect to a reorganization plan, it is at any time 
thereafter in order (even though a previous motion to the same effect 
has been disagreed to) for any Member of the respective House to move to 
proceed to the consideration of the resolution. The motion is highly 
privileged and is not debatable. The motion shall not be subject to 
amendment, or to a motion to postpone, or a motion to proceed to the 
consideration of other business. 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 resolution is agreed to, 
the resolution shall remain the unfinished business of the respective 
House until disposed of.

  (b) Debate on the resolution, and on all debatable motions and appeals 
in connection therewith, shall be limited to not more than ten hours, 
which shall be divided equally between individuals favoring and 
individuals opposing the resolution. 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 resolution is not in order. A motion to reconsider the 
vote by which the resolution is passed or rejected shall not be in 
order.

  (c) Immediately following the conclusion of the debate on the 
resolution with respect to a reorganization plan, and a single quorum 
call at the conclusion of the debate if requested in accordance with the 
rules of the appropriate House, the vote on final passage of the 
resolution shall occur.


[[Page 1068]]

  (d) Appeals from the decisions of the Chair relating to the 
application of the rules of the Senate or the House of Representatives, 
as the case may be, to the procedure relating to a resolution with 
respect to a reorganization plan shall be decided without debate.

  (e) If, prior to the passage by one House of a resolution of that 
House, that House receives a resolution with respect to the same 
reorganization plan from the other House, then--

          (1) the procedure in that House shall be the same as if no 

        resolution had been received from the other House; but

          (2) the vote on final passage shall be on the resolution of 


        the other House.

  Section 905(b) was amended by Public Law 98-614 to terminate the 
authority of the President to submit reorganization plans under this 
statute on December 31, 1984. These provisions are carried in this 
compilation because other Acts have incorporated their procedures by 
reference.





                                                            Sec. 1130(2)


      2. War Powers Resolution, Sec. Sec. 5-7 [50 U.S.C. 1544-1546]

  Sec. 5. (a) Each report submitted pursuant to section 4(a)(1) shall be 
transmitted to the Speaker of the House of Representatives and to the 
President pro tempore of the Senate on the same calendar day. Each 
report so transmitted shall be referred to the Committee on 
International Relations of the House of Representatives and to the 
Committee on Foreign Relations of the Senate for appropriate action. If, 
when the report is transmitted, the Congress has adjourned sine die or 
has adjourned for any period in excess of three calendar days, the 
Speaker of the House of Representatives and the President pro tempore of 
the Senate, if they deem if advisable (or if petitioned by at least 30 
percent of the membership of their respective Houses) shall jointly 
request the President to convene Congress in order that it may consider 
the report and take appropriate action pursuant to this section.


[[Page 1069]]

Congress in writing that unavoidable military necessity respecting the 
safety of United States Armed Forces requires the continued use of such 
armed forces in the course of bringing about a prompt removal of such 
forces.
  (b) Within sixty calendar days after a report is submitted or is 
required to be submitted pursuant to section 4(a)(1), whichever is 
earlier, the President shall terminate any use of United States Armed 
Forces with respect to which such report was submitted (or required to 
be submitted), unless the Congress (1) has declared war or has enacted a 
specific authorization for such use of United States Armed Forces, (2) 
has extended by law such sixty-day period, or (3) is physically unable 
to meet as a result of an armed attack upon the United States. Such 
sixty-day period shall be extended for not more than an additional 
thirty days if the President determines and certifies to the


  (c) Notwithstanding subsection (b), at any time that United States 
Armed Forces are engaged in hostilities outside the territory of the 
United States, its possessions and territories without a declaration of 
war or specific statutory authorization, such forces shall be removed by 
the President if the Congress so directs by concurrent resolution.


  This section (and section 7, infra) should be read in light of INS v. 
Chadha, 462 U.S. 919 (1983).

  Sec. 6. (a) Any joint resolution or bill introduced pursuant to 
section 5(b) at least thirty calendar days before the expiration of the 
sixty-day period specified in such section shall be referred to the 
Committee on International Relations of the House of Representatives or 
the Committee on Foreign Relations of the Senate, as the case may be, 
and such committee shall report one such joint resolution or bill, 
together with its recommendations, not later than twenty-four calendar 
days before the expiration of the sixty-day period specified in such 
section, unless such House shall otherwise determine by the yeas and 
nays.

  (b) Any joint resolution or bill so reported shall become the pending 
business of the House in question (in the case of the Senate the time 
for debate shall be equally divided between the proponents and the 
opponents), and shall be voted on within three calendar days thereafter, 
unless such House shall otherwise determine by yeas and nays.

  (c) Such a joint resolution or bill passed by one House shall be 
referred to the committee of the other House named in subsection (a) and 
shall be reported out not later than fourteen calendar days before the 
expiration of the sixty-day period specified in section 5(b). The joint 
resolution or bill so reported shall become the pending business of the 
House in question and shall be voted on within three calendar days after 
it has been reported, unless such House shall otherwise determine by 
yeas and nays.


[[Page 1070]]

sixty-day period specified in section 5(b). In the event the conferees 
are unable to agree within 48 hours, they shall report back to their 
respective Houses in disagreement. Notwithstanding any rule in either 
House concerning the printing of conference reports in the Record or 
concerning any delay in the consideration of such reports, such report 
shall be acted on by both Houses not later than the expiration of such 
sixty-day period.

  (d) In the case of any disagreement between the two Houses of Congress 
with respect to a joint resolution or bill passed by both Houses, 
conferees shall be promptly appointed and the committee of conference 
shall make and file a report with respect to such resolution or bill not 
later than four calendar days before the expiration of the

  Sec. 7. (a) Any concurrent resolution introduced pursuant to section 
5(c) shall be referred to the Committee on International Relations of 
the House of Representatives or the Committee on Foreign Relations of 
the Senate, as the case may be, and one such concurrent resolution shall 
be reported out by such committee together with its recommendations 
within fifteen calendar days, unless such House shall otherwise 
determine by the yeas and nays.

  (b) Any concurrent resolution so reported shall become the pending 
business of the House in question (in the case of the Senate the time 
for debate shall be equally divided between the proponents and the 
opponents) and shall be voted on within three calendar days thereafter, 
unless such House shall otherwise determine by yeas and nays.

  (c) Such a concurrent resolution passed by one House shall be referred 
to the committee of the other House named in subsection (a) and shall be 
reported out by such committee together with its recommendations within 
fifteen calendar days and shall thereupon become the pending business of 
such House and shall be voted upon within three calendar days, unless 
such House shall otherwise determine by yeas and nays.

  (d) In the case of any disagreement between the two Houses of Congress 
with respect to a concurrent resolution passed by both Houses, conferees 
shall be promptly appointed and the committee of conference shall make 
and file a report with respect to such concurrent resolution within six 
calendar days after the legislation is referred to the committee of 
conference. Notwithstanding any rule in either House concerning the 
printing of conference reports in the Record or concerning any delay in 
the consideration of such reports, such report shall be acted on by both 
Houses not later than six calendar days after the conference report is 
filed. In the event the conferees are unable to agree within 48 hours, 
they shall report back to their respective Houses in disagreement.

  In the 94th Congress the President was granted authority to implement 
a ``Sinai early-warning system'' involving the assignment of civilian 
personnel to noncombat functions. In the same enactment, Congress 
provided for privileged consideration of a concurrent resolution calling 
for the removal of such personnel (see 22 U.S.C. 2348 note).

  In the 98th Congress the Committee on Foreign Affairs reported a joint 
resolution providing statutory authorization under the War Powers 
Resolution for a multinational peacekeeping force in Lebanon. The joint 
resolution would have been subject to consideration under the procedural 
provisions of the statute, but the House adopted a special order 
reported from the Committee on Rules varying the procedures for 
consideration of the joint resolution and also providing for 
consideration of a similar Senate joint resolution (H. Res. 318, Sept. 
28, 1983, p. 26108). The House subsequently passed a Senate joint 
resolution on the subject that changed the Rules of the House and Senate 
to provide special procedures for consideration of a joint resolution or 
bill to amend or repeal its provisions (P.L. 98-119, Sept. 29, 1983, p. 
26493).

  In the 98th Congress the Act was amended to provide for expedited 
consideration in the Senate of bills or joint resolutions requiring the 
removal of U.S. forces engaged in hostilities outside U.S. territory 
without a declaration of war (P.L. 98-164, Nov. 22, 1983). Those 
procedures appear in section 601(b) of the International Security 
Assistance and Arms Export Control Act of 1976 (P.L. 94-329; 90 Stat. 
765).

  In the 102d Congress the President was granted specific authority 
within the meaning of section 5(b) of the Act to use U.S. armed forces 
to enforce United Nations resolutions in response to the occupation of 
Kuwait by Iraq (P.L. 102-1, Jan. 14, 1991).

  In the 103d Congress the Committee on Foreign Affairs reported H. Con. 
Res. 170, directing the President pursuant to 5(c) of the Act to remove 
United States Armed Forces from Somalia by January 31, 1994. By 
unanimous consent the House extended by one day the time for privileged 
consideration of that concurrent resolution under section 7(b) (Nov. 4, 
1993, p. 27393).

  In the 105th Congress the Committee on International Relations 
reported H. Con. Res. 227, directing the President pursuant to section 
5(c) of the Act to remove United States Armed Forces from the Republic 
of Bosnia and Herzegovina. By unanimous consent the House postponed 
consideration of the concurrent resolution until a subsequent date 
certain and provided for its consideration under a ``closed'' procedure 
(Mar. 12, 1998, p. 3398).

and the Government of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. The House 
adopted a special order reported from the Committee on Rules varying the 
statutory procedures for consideration of both the concurrent resolution 
and the joint resolution (H. Res. 151, Apr. 28, 1999, p. 7718).
  In the 106th Congress the Committee on International Relations 
reported H. Con. Res. 82, directing the President pursuant to section 
5(c) of the Act to remove United States Armed Forces from their 
positions in connection with the operations against the Federal Republic 
of Yugoslavia, and H. J. Res. 44, pursuant to section 5(b) of the Act 
and article I, section 8 of the Constitution, declaring a state of war 
between the United States

emergency in effect on the date of enactment of this Act [Sept. 14, 
1976] are terminated two years from the date of such enactment. Such 
termination shall not affect--

          (1) any action taken or proceeding pending not finally 

        concluded or determined on such date;

          (2) any action or proceeding based on any act committed prior 

        to such date; or

          (3) any rights or duties that matured or penalties that were 

        incurred prior to such date.


  (b) For the purpose of this section, the words ``any national 
emergency in effect'' means a general declaration of emergency made by 
the President.

  Sec. 202. (a) Any national emergency declared by the President in

the date specified in any joint resolution referred to in clause (1) or 
on the date specified in a proclamation by the President terminating the 
emergency as provided in clause (2) of this subsection, whichever date 
is earlier, and any powers or authorities exercised by reason of said 
emergency shall cease to be exercised after such specified date, except 
that such termination shall not affect--

          (A) any action taken or proceeding pending not finally 

        concluded or determined on such date;

          (B) any action or proceeding based on any act committed prior 

        to such date; or

          (C) any rights or duties that matured or penalties that were 

        incurred prior to such date.

  (b) Not later than six months after a national emergency is declared, 
and not later than the end of each six-month period thereafter that such 
emergency continues, each House of Congress shall meet to consider a 
vote on a joint resolution to determine whether that emergency shall be 
terminated.

  (c)(1) A joint resolution to terminate a national emergency delared by 
the President shall be referred to the appropriate committee of the 
House of Representatives or the Senate, as the case may be. One such 
joint resolution shall be reported out by such committee together with 
its recommendations within fifteen calendar days after the day on which 
such resolution is referred to such committee, unless such House shall 
otherwise determine by the yeas and nays.


[[Page 1074]]

resolution is reported, unless such House shall otherwise determine by 
yeas and nays.
  (2) Any joint resolution so reported shall become the pending business 
of the House in question (in the case of the Senate the time for debate 
shall be equally divided between the proponents and the opponents) and

  (3) Such a joint resolution passed by one House shall be referred to 
the appropriate committee of the other House and shall be reported out 
by such committee together within its recommendations within fifteen 
calendar days after the day on which such resolution is referred to such

and shall be voted upon within three calendar days after the day on 
which such resolution is reported, unless such House shall otherwise 
determine by yeas and nays.

  (4) In the case of any disagreement between the two Houses of Congress 
with respect to a joint resolution passed by both Houses, conferees 
shall be promptly appointed and the committee of conference shall make 
and file a report with respect to such joint resolution within six 
calendar days after the day on which managers on the part of the Senate 
and the House have been appointed. Notwithstanding any rule in either 
House concerning the printing of conference reports or concerning any 
delay in the consideration of such reports, such report shall be acted 
on by both Houses not later than six calendar days after the conference 
report is filed in the House in which such report is filed first. In the

        deemed a part of the rules of each House, respectively, but 

        applicable only with respect to the procedure to be followed in 

        the House in the case of resolutions described by this 

        subsection; and they supersede other rules only to the extent 

        that they are inconsistent therewith; 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

            congressional action on certain district matters

  Sec. 604. (a) This section is enacted by Congress--

          (1) as an exercise of the rulemaking power of the Senate and 

        the House of Representatives, respectively, and as such these 

        provisions are deemed a part of the rule of each House, 

        respectively, but applicable only with respect to the procedure 

        to be followed in that House in the case of resolutions 

        described by this section; and they supersede other rules only 

        to the extent that they are inconsistent therewith; and

          (2) with full recognition of the constitutional right of 

        either House to change the rule (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.

  (b) For the purpose of this section, ``resolution'' means only a joint 
resolution, the matter after the resolving clause of which is as 
follows: ``That the ------ approves/disapproves of the action of the 
District of Columbia Council described as follows: ------.'', the blank 
spaces therein being appropriately filled, and either approval or 
disapproval being appropriately indicated; but does not include a 
resolution which specifies more than one action.

  (c) A resolution with respect to Council action shall be referred to 
the Committee on Government Reform of the House of Representatives, or 
the Committee on the District of Columbia of the Senate, by the 
President of the Senate or the Speaker of the House of Representatives, 
as the case may be.

reported it at the end of twenty calendar days after its introduction,

consideration of any

  (e) A motion to discharge may be made only by an individual favoring 
the resolution, is highly privileged (except that it may not be made 
after the committee has reported a resolution with respect to the same 
action), and debate thereon shall be limited to not more than one hour, 
to be divided equally between those favoring and those opposing the 
resolution. An amendment to the motion is not in order, and it is not in 
order to move to reconsider the vote by which the motion is agreed to or 
disagreed to.

  (f) If the motion to discharge is agreed to or disagreed to, the 
motion may not be renewed, nor may another motion to discharge the 
committee be made with respect to any other resolution with respect to 
the same action.

  (g) When the committee has reported, or has been discharged from 
further consideration of, a resolution, it is at any time thereafter in 
order (even though a previous motion to the same effect has been 
disagreed to) to move to proceed to the consideration of the resolution. 
The motion is highly privileged and is not debatable. An amendment to 
the motion is not in order, and it is not in order to move to reconsider 
the vote by which the motion is agreed to or disagreed to.

  (h) Debate on the resolution shall be limited to not more than ten 
hours, which shall be divided equally between those favoring and those 
opposing the resolution. A motion further to limit debate is not 
debatable. An amendment to, or motion to recommit, the resolution is not 
in order, and it is not in order to move to reconsider the vote by which 
the resolution is agreed to or disagreed to.

  (i) Motions to postpone made with respect to the discharge from 
committee or the consideration of a resolution, and motions to proceed 
to the consideration of other business, shall be decided without debate.


  (j) Appeals from the decisions of the Chair relating to the 
application of the rules of the Senate or the House of Representatives, 
as the case may be, to the procedure relating to a resolution shall be 
decided without debate.

charge the Committee on the District of Columbia (now Government Reform) 
from further consideration of a (joint) resolution disapproving an act 
of the Council amending the D.C. Criminal Code is privileged after 20 
calendar days from introduction of the resolution, if not reported 
during that time (Oct. 1, 1981, p. 22752; Oct. 14, 1987, p. 27847).
  It is not in order to offer as privileged a motion to discharge the 
Committee on the District of Columbia (now Government Reform) from a 
simple (now joint) resolution disapproving an act passed by the D.C. 
City Council prior to the time that the Council was vested with the 
authority to pass the category of act to which the simple resolution 
disapproval procedure applies (Speaker Albert, Sept. 22, 1976, pp. 
31873-74). The D.C. City Council subsequently having been vested with 
that authority, a motion to dis

  Section 604 does not provide a privileged motion to discharge the 
District of Columbia Committee from a concurrent (now joint) resolution 
disapproving acts of the D.C. City Council not affecting the D.C. 
Criminal Code, such concurrent resolutions only being privileged when 
reported by that committee (Speaker Albert, Sept. 22, 1976, pp. 31873-
74). Under section 604(h), debate on a concurrent (now joint) resolution 
of disapproval can be limited by motion, but otherwise extends not to 
exceed 10 hours; a concurrent (now joint) resolution disapproving an 
action of the D.C. Council which does not affect the U.S. Treasury is 
considered in the House (Dec. 20, 1979, p. 7303).

        shall be excluded in the computation of the 45-day period 

        referred to in paragraph (3) of this section and in section 

        1012, and the 25-day periods referred to in sections 1016 and 

        1017(b)(1). If a special message is transmitted under section 

        1012 during any Congress and the last session of such Congress 

        adjourns sine die before the expiration of 45 calendar days of 

        continuous session (or a special message is so transmitted after 

        the last session of the Congress adjourns sine die), the message 

        shall be deemed to have been retransmitted on the first day of 

        the succeeding Congress and the 45-day period referred to in 

        paragraph (3) of this section and in section 1012 (with respect 


        to such message) shall commence on the day after such first day.


                     rescission of budget authority

  Sec. 1012. (a) transmittal of special message.--Whenever the President 
determines that all or part of any budget authority will not be required 
to carry out the full objectives or scope of programs for which it is 
provided or that such budget authority should be rescinded for fiscal 
policy or other reasons (including the termination of authorized 
projects or activities for which budget authority has been provided), or 
whenever all or part of budget authority provided for only one fiscal 
year is to be reserved from obligation for such fiscal year, the 
President shall transmit to both Houses of Congress a special message 
specifying--

          (1) the amount of budget authority which he proposes to be 

        rescinded or which is to be so reserved;

          (2) any account, department, or establishment of the 

        Government to which such budget authority is available for 

        obligation, and the specific project or governmental functions 


[[Page 1082]]

        involved;

          (3) the reasons why the budget authority should be rescinded 

        or is to be so reserved;

          (4) to the maximum extent practicable, the estimated fiscal, 

        economic, and budgetary effect of the proposed rescission or of 

        the reservation; and

          (5) all facts, circumstances, and considerations relating to 

        or bearing upon the proposed rescission or the reservation and 

        the decision to effect the proposed rescission or the 

        reservation, and to the maximum extent practicable, the 

        estimated effect of the proposed rescission or the reservation 

        upon the objects, purposes, and programs for which the budget 

        authority is provided.


  (b) requirement to make available for obligation.--Any amount of 
budget authority proposed to be rescinded or that is to be reserved as 
set forth in such special message shall be made available for obligation 
unless, within the prescribed 45-day period, the Congress has completed 
action on a rescission bill rescinding all or part of the amount 
proposed to be rescinded or that is to be reserved. Funds made available 
for obligation under this procedure may not be proposed for rescission 
again.


                 proposed deferrals of budget authority

  Sec. 1013. (a) transmittal of special message.--Whenever the 
President, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, the head 
of any department or agency of the United States, or any officer or 
employee of the United States proposes to defer any budget authority 
provided for a specific purpose or project, the President shall transmit 
to the House of Representatives and the Senate a special message 
specifying--

          (1) The amount of the budget authority proposed to be 

        deferred;

          (2) any account, department, or establishment of the 

        Government to which such budget authority is available for 

        obligation, and the specific projects or governmental functions 

        involved;

          (3) the period of time during which the budget authority is 

        proposed to be deferred;

          (4) the reasons for the proposed deferral, including any legal 


[[Page 1083]]

        authority invoked to justify the proposed deferral;

          (5) to the maximum extent practicable, the estimated fiscal, 

        economic, and budgetary effect of the proposed deferral; and

          (6) all facts, circumstances, and considerations relating to 

        or bearing upon the proposed deferral and the decision to effect 

        the proposed deferral, including an analysis of such facts, 

        circumstances, and considerations in terms of their application 

        to any legal authority, including specific elements of legal 

        authority, invoked to justify such proposed deferral, and to the 

        maximum extent practicable, the estimated effect of the proposed 

        deferral upon the objects, purposes, and programs for which the 

        budget authority is provided.
A special message may include one or more proposed deferrals of budget 
authority. A deferral may not be proposed for any period of time 
extending beyond the end of the fiscal year in which the special message 
proposing the deferral is transmitted to the House and the Senate.

  (b) consistency with legislative policy.--Deferrals shall be 
permissible only--

          (1) to provide for contingencies;

          (2) to achieve savings made possible by or through changes in 

        requirements or greater efficiency of operations; or

          (3) as specifically provided by law.
No officer or employee of the United States may defer any budget 
authority for any other purpose.


  (c) exception.--The provisions of this section do not apply to any 
budget authority proposed to be rescinded or that is to be reserved as 
set forth in a special message required to be transmitted under section 
1012.

                      procedure in house and senate

  Sec. 1017. (a) referral.--Any rescission bill introduced with respect 
to a special message or impoundment resolution introduced with respect 
to a proposed deferral of budget authority shall be referred to the 
appropriate committee of the House of Representatives or the Senate, as 
the case may be.


[[Page 1084]]

mittee from further consideration of the bill or resolution or to 
discharge the committee from further consideration of any other 
rescission bill with respect to the same special message or impoundment 
resolution with respect to the same proposed deferral, as the case may 
be, which has been referred to the committee.
  (b) discharge of committee.--(1) If the committee of which a 
rescission bill or impoundment resolution has been referred has not 
reported it at the end of 25 calendar days of continuous session of the 
Congress after its introduction, it is in order to move either to 
discharge the com

  (2) A motion to discharge may be made only by an individual favoring 
the bill or resolution, may be made only if supported by one-fifth of 
the Members of the House involved (a quorum being present), and is 
highly privileged in the House and privileged in the Senate (except that 
it may not be made after the committee has reported a bill or resolution 
with respect to the same special message or the same proposed deferral, 
as the case may be); and debate thereon shall be limited to not more 
than 1 hour, the time to be divided in the House equally between those 
favoring and those opposing the bill or resolution, and to be divided in 
the Senate equally between, and controlled by, the majority leader and 
the minority leader or their designees. An amendment to the motion is 
not in order, and it is not in order to move to reconsider the vote by 
which the motion is agreed to or disagreed to.

  (c) floor consideration in the house.--(1) When the committee of the 
House of Representatives has reported, or has been discharged from 
further consideration of, a rescission bill or impoundment resolution, 
it shall at any time thereafter be in order (even though a previous 
motion to the same effect has been disagreed to) to move to proceed to 
the consideration of the bill or resolution. The motion shall be highly 
privileged and not debatable. An amendment to the motion shall not be in 
order, nor shall it be in order to move to reconsider the vote by which 
the motion is agreed to or disagreed to.

  (2) Debate on a rescission bill or impoundment resolution shall be 
limited to not more than 2 hours, which shall be divided equally between 
those favoring and those opposing the bill or resolution. A motion 
further to limit debate shall not be debatable. In the case of an 
impoundment resolution, no amendment to, or motion to recommit, the 
resolution shall be in order. It shall not be in order to move to 
reconsider the vote by which a rescission bill or impoundment resolution 
is agreed to or disagreed to.


[[Page 1085]]

  (3) Motions to postpone, made with respect to the consideration of a 
rescission bill or impoundment resolution, and motions to proceed to the 
consideration of other business, shall be decided without debate.

  (4) All appeals from the decisions of the Chair relating to the 
application of the Rules of the House of Representatives to the 
procedure relating to any rescission bill or impoundment resolution 
shall be decided without debate.

  (5) Except to the extent specifically provided in the preceding 
provisions of this subsection, consideration of any rescission bill or 
impoundment resolution and amendments thereto (or any conference report 
thereon) shall be governed by the Rules of the House of Representatives 
applicable to other bills and resolutions, amendments, and conference 
reports in similar circumstances.

  (d) floor consideration in the senate.--(1) Debate in the Senate on 
any rescission bill or impoundment resolution, and all amendments 
thereto (in the case of a rescission bill) and debatable motions and 
appeals in connection therewith, shall be limited to not more than 10 
hours. The time shall be equally divided between, and controlled by, the 
majority leader and the minority leader or their designees.

  (2) Debate in the Senate on any amendment to a rescission bill shall 
be limited to 2 hours, to be equally divided between, and controlled by, 
the mover and the manager of the bill. Debate on any amendment to an 
amendment, to such a bill, and debate on any debatable motion or appeal 
in connection with such a bill or an impoundment resolution shall be 
limited to 1 hour, to be equally divided between, and controlled by, the 
mover and the manager of the bill or resolution, except that in the 
event the manager of the bill or resolution is in favor of any such 
amendment, motion, or appeal, the time in opposition thereto, shall be 
controlled by the minority leader or his designee. No amendment that is 
not germane to the provisions of a rescission bill shall be received. 
Such leaders, or either of them, may, from the time under their control 
on the passage of a rescission bill or impoundment resolution, allot 
additional time to any Senator during the consideration of any 
amendment, debatable motion, or appeal.


[[Page 1086]]

resolution, no amendment or motion to recommit is in order.
  (3) A motion to further limit debate is not debatable. In the case of 
a rescission bill, a motion to recommit (except a motion to recommit 
with instructions to report back within a specified number of days, not 
to exceed 3, not counting any day on which the Senate is not in session) 
is not in order. Debate on any such motion to recommit shall be limited 
to one hour, to be equally divided between, and controlled by, the mover 
and the manager of the concurrent resolution. In the case of an 
impoundment

  (4) The conference report on any rescission bill shall be in order in 
the Senate at any time after the third day (excluding Saturdays, 
Sundays, and legal holidays) following the day on which such a 
conference report is reported and is available to Members of the Senate. 
A motion to proceed to the consideration of the conference report may be 
made even though a previous motion to the same effect has been disagreed 
to.

  (5) During the consideration in the Senate of the conference report on 
any rescission bill, debate shall be limited to 2 hours, to be equally 
divided between, and controlled by, the majority leader and minority 
leader or their designees. Debate on any debatable motion or appeal 
related to the conference report shall be limited to 30 minutes, to be 
equally divided between, and controlled by, the mover and the manager of 
the conference report.

  (6) Should the conference report be defeated, debate on any request 
for a new conference and the appointment of conferees shall be limited 
to one hour, to be equally divided, between, and controlled by, the 
manager of the conference report and the minority leader or his 
designee, and should any motion be made to instruct the conferees before 
the conferees are named, debate on such motion shall be limited to 30 
minutes, to be equally divided between, and controlled by, the mover and 
the manager of the conference report. Debate on any amendment to any 
such instructions shall be limited to 20 minutes, to be equally divided 
between, and controlled by the mover and the manager of the conference 
report. In all cases when the manager of the conference report is in 
favor of any motion, appeal, or amendment, the time in opposition shall 
be under the control of the minority leader or his designee.


  (7) In any case in which there are amendments in disagreement, time on 
each amendment shall be limited to 30 minutes, to be equally divided 
between, and controlled by, the manager of the conference report and the 
minority leader or his designee. No amendment that is not germane to the 
provisions of such amendments shall be received.

initial consideration of the bill in the House (Speaker Albert, Mar. 25, 
1975, pp. 8484-85).
  The privileged status given in section 1017(c)(1) to rescission bills 
within the 45-day period prescribed in section 1011 applies only to the 
initial consideration of the bill in the House, and consideration of a 
conference report on any bill containing rescissions of budget authority 
is subject only to the general rules of the House relating to conference 
reports and is

                        line item veto authority

  In Clinton v. City of New York, 524 U.S. 417 (1998), the Supreme Court 
held that the cancellation procedures of the Line Item Veto Act violated 
the presentment clause of article I, section 7 of the Constitution. 
During the period between the January 1, 1997, effective date of the Act 
and the Court decision, the President exercised his authority under the 
Act to cancel dollar amounts of discretionary budget authority (see 
e.g., H. Doc. 105-147), new direct spending (H. Doc. 105-115), and 
limited tax benefits (H. Doc. 105-116). Cancellations were effective 
unless disapproved by law (P.L. 105-159). While the congressional review 
procedures remain in the law, the Court decision makes it unlikely that 
they will be invoked. Accordingly their text is omitted here but may be 
found in pp. 1029-45 of the House Rules and Manual for the 105th 
Congress. The procedures may be summarized as follows: The cancellations 
were transmitted to the Congress by the President by a special message 
within five calendar days after the enactment of the law to which the 
cancellation applied. The Act provided for a congressional review period 
of 30 calendar days of session with expedited House consideration of 
bills disapproving the cancellations including: (1) prescribing the text 
(section 1026(6)); (2) referral to committee with directions to report 
within seven calendar days subject to a motion to discharge (section 
1025(d)); (3) consideration of a disapproval bill in the Committee of 
the Whole with no amendment in order (except that a Member, supported by 
49 other Members, could offer an amendment striking cancellations from 
the bill), and consideration of the bill for amendment limited to one 
hour (section 1025(d)); and (4) one-calendar-day availability for a 
conference report (section 1025(f)). The Act also provided for expedited 
procedures in the Senate, and was to have no force or effect after 
January 1, 2005.

rectly, for the repurchase, transportation or storage of any foreign 
spent nuclear fuel (including any nuclear fuel irradiated in any nuclear 
power reactor located outside of the United States and operated by any 
foreign legal entity, government or nongovernment, regardless of the 
legal ownership or control of the fuel or the reactor, and regardless of 
the origin or licensing of the fuel or the reactor, but not including 
fuel irradiated in a research reactor, and not including fuel irradiated 
in a power reactor if the President determines that (1) use of funds for 
repurchase, transportation or storage of such fuel is required by an 
emergency situation, (2) it is in the interest of the common defense and 
security of the United States to take such action, and (3) he notifies 
the Congress of the determination and action, with a detailed 
explanation and justification thereof, as soon as possible) unless the 
President formally notifies, with the report information specified 
herein, the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources of the Senate and 
the Committee on Science of the House of Representatives of such use of 
funds thirty calendar days, during such time as either House of Congress 
is in session, before the commitment, expenditure, or obligation of such 
funds: And provided further, That, notwithstanding any other provision 
of law, that none of the funds appropriated pursuant to this Act or any 
other funds made available to the Secretary of Energy under any other 
authorization or appropriation Act shall be used, directly or 
indirectly, for the repurchase, transportation, or storage of any such 
foreign spent nuclear fuel for storage or other disposition, interim or 
permanent, in the United States, unless the use of the funds for that 
specific purpose has been (1) previously and expressly authorized by 
Congress in legislation hereafter enacted, (2) previously and expressly 
authorized by a concurrent resolution, or (3) the President submits a 
plan for such use, with the report information specified herein, thirty 
days during which the Congress is in continuous session, as defined in 
the Impoundment Control Act of 1974, prior to such use and neither House 
of Congress approves a resolution of disapproval of the plan prior to 
the expiration of the aforementioned thirty-day period. If such a 
resolution of disapproval has been introduced, but has not been reported 
by the Committee on or before the twentieth day after transmission of 
the presidential message, a privileged motion shall be in order in the 
respective body to discharge the Committee from further consideration of 
the resolu

  Sec. 4006. revised coverage schedules-- * * * (b)(1) In order to place 
a revised schedule (other than a schedule described in subsection (a)(2) 
(C), (D), or (E) in effect, the corporation shall transmit the proposed 
schedule, its proposed effective date, and the reasons for its proposal 
to the Committee on Ways and Means and the Committee on Economic and 
Educational Opportunities of the House of Representatives, and to the 
Committee on Finance and the Committee on Labor and Human Resources of 
the Senate.

  (2) The succeeding paragraphs of this subsection are enacted by 
Congress as an exercise of the rulemaking power of the Senate and the 
House of Representatives, respectively, and as such they shall be 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 resolutions described in paragraph (3). They shall supersede other 
rules only to the extent that they are inconsistent therewith. They are 
enacted 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 rule of that House.

  (3) For the purpose of the succeeding paragraphs of this subsection, 
``resolution'' means only a joint resolution, the matter after the 
resolving clause of which is as follows: ``The proposed revised schedule 
transmitted to Congress by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation on 
------ is hereby approved.'', the blank space therein being filled with 
the date on which the corporation's message proposing the rate was

and to the Committee on Finance and the Committee on Labor and Human 
Resources of the Senate.
  (4) A resolution shall be referred to the Committee on Ways and Means 
and the Committee on Economic and Educational Opportunities of the House 
of Representatives

  (5) If a committee to which has been referred a resolution has not 
reported it before the expiration of 10 calendar days after its 
introduction, it shall then (but not before) be in order to move to 
discharge the committee from further consideration of that resolution, 
or to discharge the committee from further consideration of any other 
resolution with respect to the proposed adjustment which has been 
referred to the committee. The motion to discharge may be made only by a 
person favoring the resolution, shall be highly privileged (except that 
it may not be made after the committee has reported a resolution with 
respect to the same proposed rate), and debate thereon shall be limited 
to not more than 1 hour, to be divided equally between those favoring 
and those opposing the resolution. An amendment to the motion is not in 
order, and it is not in order to move to reconsider the vote by which 
the motion is agreed to or disagreed to. If the motion to discharge is 
agreed to or disagreed to, the motion may not be renewed, nor may 
another motion to discharge the committee be made with respect to any 
other resolution with respect to the same proposed rate.

  (6) When a committee has reported, or has been discharged from further 
consideration of a resolution, it is at any time thereafter in order 
(even though a previous motion to the same effect has been disagreed to) 
to move to proceed to the consideration of the resolution. The motion is 
highly privileged and is not debatable. An amendment to the motion is 
not in order, and it is not in order to move to reconsider the vote by 
which the motion is agreed to or disagreed to. Debate on the resolution 
shall be limited to not more than 10 hours, which shall be divided 
equally between those favoring and those opposing the resolution. A 
motion further to limit debate is not debatable. An amendment to, or 
motion to recommit, the resolution is not in order, and it is not in 
order to move to reconsider the vote by which the resolution is agreed 
to or disagreed to.

  (7) Motions to postpone, made with respect to the discharge from 
committee, or the consideration of, a resolution and motions to proceed 
to the consideration of other business shall be decided without debate. 
Appeals from the decisions of the Chair relating to the application of 
the rules of the Senate or the House of Representatives, as the case may 
be, to the procedure relating to a resolution shall be decided without 
debate.

  By unanimous consent a concurrent resolution approving a revised 
coverage schedule proposed by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation 
was considered in the House as in Committee of the Whole (Nov. 2, 1977, 
pp. 36644-46).

                guarantee levels for multiemployer plans described in 

                subsection (c), and

                  (ii) whether the basic-benefit guarantee levels for 

                multiemployer plans may be increased without increasing 

                the basic-benefit premiums for multiemployer plans under 

                this title; and

          (B) report such determinations to the Committee on Ways and 

        Means and the Committee on Economic and Educational 

        Opportunities of the House of Representatives and to the 

        Committee on Finance and the Committee on Labor and Human 

        Resources of the Senate.

premium increase is necessary to support the existing basic-benefit 
guarantee levels for multiemployer plans, the corporation shall transmit 
to the Committee on Ways and Means and the Committee on Economic and 
Educational Opportunities of the House of Representatives and to the 
Committee on Finance and the Committee on Labor and Human Resources of 
the Senate by March 31 of any calendar year in which congressional 
action under this subsection is requested--

        multiemployer plans which would be necessary in the absence of 

        an increase in premiums approved in accordance with section 

        4006(b) [29 U.S.C. 1306(b)],

          (ii) a revised schedule of basic-benefit premiums for 

        multiemployer plans which is necessary to support the existing

        multiemployer plans for which the schedule of premiums necessary 

        is higher than the existing premium schedule for such plans but 

        lower than the revised schedule of premiums for such plans 

        specified in clause (ii), together with such schedule of 

        premiums.

  (B) The revised schedule of increased premiums referred to in 
subparagraph (A)(ii) or (A)(iii) shall go into effect as approved by the 
enactment of a joint resolution.

  (C) If an increase in premiums is not so enacted, the revised 
guarantee schedule described in subparagraph (A)(i) shall go into effect 
on the first day of the second calendar year following the year in which 
such revised guarantee schedule was submitted to the Congress.

  (3)(A) If the last report described in paragraph (1) indicates that 
basic-benefit guarantees for multiemployer plans can be increased 
without increasing the basic-benefit premiums for multiemployer plans 
under this title, the corporation shall submit to the Committee on Ways 
and Means and the Committee on Economic and Educational Opportunities of 
the House of Representatives and to the Committee on Finance and the 
Committee on Labor and Human Resources of the Senate by March 31 of the 
calendar year in which congressional action under this paragraph is 
requested--

cooperation with any group of nations which has been exempted pursuant 
to the above proviso from the provisions of paragraph (4) or (5) of 
section 127 of this Act [42 U.S.C. 2156(4) or (5)], but which has not

any action with respect to any such extension, such joint resolution 
will be considered in the House or Senate, as the case may be, under 
procedures identical to those provided for the consideration of 
resolutions pursuant to section 130 of this Act [42 U.S.C. 2159]: * * *

application and reviewing the Commission's decision, the President 
determines that withholding the proposed export would be seriously 
prejudicial to the achievement of United States non-proliferation

Executive order, together with his explanation of why, in light of the 
Commission's decision, the export should nonetheless be made, to the 
Congress for a period of sixty days of continuous session (as defined in 
subsection 130g. [42 U.S.C. 2159(g)]) and shall be referred to the

on Foreign Relations of the Senate or the Committee on International 
Relations of the House of Representatives, as the case may be, and shall 
be considered by the other House under applicable procedures provided 
for the consideration of resolutions pursuant to section 130 of this Act

for the remainder of that Congress, unless such state meets the 
criterion or the President notifies the Congress that he has determined 
that significant progress has been made in achieving adherence to such 
criterion by such state or that United States foreign policy interests 
dictate reconsideration and the Congress, pursuant to the procedure of 
paragraph (1), does not adopt a concurrent resolution stating in 
substance that it disagrees with the President's determination.
  (2) If the Congress adopts a resolution of disapproval pursuant to 
paragraph (1), no further export of materials,


  (3) If the Congress does not adopt a resolution of disapproval with 
respect to a license or authorization submitted pursuant to paragraph 
(1), the criterion set forth in subsection a. shall not be applied as an 
export criterion with respect to exports of materials, facilities and 
technology specified in subsection a. to that state: Provided, That the 
first license or authorization with respect to that state which is 
issued pursuant to this paragraph after twelve months from the elapse of 
the sixty-day period specified in paragraph (1), and the first such 
license or authorization which is issued after each twelve-month period 
thereafter, shall be submitted to the Congress for review pursuant to 
the procedures specified in paragraph (1): Provided further, That if the 
Congress adopts a resolution of disapproval during any review period 
provided for by this paragraph, the provisions of paragraph (2) shall 
apply with respect to further exports to such state.

where such arrangement involves a direct or indirect commitment of the 
United States for the storage or other disposition, interim or 
permanent, of any foreign spent nuclear fuel in the United States, the 
Secretary of Energy may not enter into any such subsequent arrangement, 
unless:

          (A)(i) Such commitment of the United States has been submitted 

        to the Congress for a period of sixty days of continuous session

  Sec. 402. freedom of emigration in east-west trade.-- * * *

  (c)(1) During the 18-month period beginning on the date of the 
enactment of this Act, the President is authorized to waive by Executive 
order the application of subsections (a) and (b) with respect to any 
country, if he reports to the Congress that--

          (A) he has determined that such waiver will substantially 

        promote the objectives of this section; and

          (B) he has received assurances that the emigration practices 

        of that country will henceforth lead substantially to the 

        achievement of the objectives of this section.

  (2) During any period subsequent to the 18-month period referred to in 
paragraph (1), the President is authorized to waive by Executive order 
the application of subsections (a) and (b) with respect to any country, 
if the waiver authority granted by this subsection continues to apply to

          (A) he has determined that such waiver will substantially 


[[Page 1107]]

        promote the objectives of this section; and

          (B) he has received assurances that the emigration practices 

        of that country will henceforth lead substantially to the 

        achievement of the objectives of this section.

  (3) A waiver with respect to any country shall terminate on the day 
after the waiver authority granted by this subsection ceases to be 
effective with respect to such country pursuant to subsection (d). The 
President may, at any time, terminate by Executive order any waiver 
granted under this subsection.

  (d)(1) If the President determines that the further extension of the 
waiver authority granted under subsection (c) will substantially promote 
the objectives of this section, he may recommend further extensions of 
such authority for successive 12-month periods. Any such recommendations 
shall--

          (A) be made not later than 30 days before the expiration of 

        such authority;

          (B) be made in a document transmitted to the House of

        granted under subsection (c) is in effect, a determination that 

        continuation of the waiver applicable to that country will 

        substantially promote the objectives of this section, and a 

        statement setting forth his reasons for such determination.
If the President recommends the further extension of such authority, 
such authority shall continue in effect until the end of the 12-month 
period following the end of the previous 12-month extension with respect 
to any country (except for any country with respect to which such 
authority has not been extended under this subsection), unless a joint 
resolution described in section 153(a) is enacted into law pursuant to 
the provisions of paragraph (2).

  (2)(A) The requirements of this paragraph are met if the joint 
resolution is enacted under the procedures set forth in section 153, 
and--

          (i) the Congress adopts and transmits the joint resolution to 

        the President before the end of the 60-day period beginning on 

        the date the waiver authority would expire but for an extension 

        under paragraph (1), and

          (ii) if the President vetoes the joint resolution, each House 


[[Page 1108]]

        of Congress votes to override such veto on or

        before the later of the last day of the 60-day period referred 

        to in clause (i) or the last day of the 15-day period (excluding 

        any day described in section 154(b)) beginning on the date the 

        Congress receives the veto message from the President.

  (B) If a joint resolution is enacted into law under the provisions of 
this paragraph, the waiver authority applicable to any country with 
respect to which the joint resolution disapproves of the extension of 
such authority shall cease to be effective as of the day after the 60-
day period beginning on the date of the enactment of the joint 
resolution.

  (C) A joint resolution to which this subsection and section 153 apply 
may be introduced at any time on or after the date the President 
transmits to the Congress the document described in paragraph (1)(B).

  (e) This section shall not apply to any country the products of which 
are eligible for the rates set forth in rate column numbered 1 of the 
Tariff Schedules of the United States on the date of the enactment of 
this Act.

  (b) The President shall transmit to the House of Representatives and 
the Senate a document containing the initial report submitted by him 
under section 402(b) or 409(b) with respect to a nonmarket economy

transmit to the House of Representatives and the Senate, a document 
containing the report required by section 402(b) or 409(b) as the case 
may be, to be submitted on or before such December 31.

described in section 151(b)(3) that approves of the extension of 
nondiscriminatory treatment to the products of the country concerned is 
enacted into law.

  (2) In the case of a document referred to in subsection (b) which 
contains a report submitted by the President under section 402(b) or 
409(b) with respect to a nonmarket economy country, if, before the close 
of the 90-day period beginning on the day on which such document is 
delivered to the House of Representatives and to the Senate, a joint 
resolution described in section 152(a)(i)(B) is enacted into law that 
disapproves of the report submitted by the President with respect to 
such country, then, beginning with the day after the end of the 60-day 
period beginning with the date of the enactment of such resolution of 
disapproval, (A) nondiscriminatory treatment shall not be in force with 
respect to the products of such country, and the products of such 
country shall be dutiable at the rates set forth in rate column numbered 
2 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, (B) such 
country may not participate in any program of the Government of the 
United States which extends credit or credit guarantees or investment 
guarantees, and (C) no commercial agreement may thereafter be concluded 
with such country under this title. If the President vetoes the joint 
resolution, the joint resolution shall be treated as enacted into law 
before the end of the 90-day period under this paragraph if both Houses 
of Congress vote to override such veto on or before the later of the 
last day of such 90-day period or the last day of the 15-day period 
(excluding any day described in section 154(b)) beginning on the date 
the Congress receives the veto message from the President.

          (2) 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.

  (c) introduction and referral.--(1) On the day on which a trade 
agreement or extension is submitted to the House of Representatives and 
the Senate under section 102, section 282 of the Uruguay Round 
Agreements Act, or section 2105(a)(1) of the Bipartisan Trade Promotion 
Authority Act of 2002, the implementing bill submitted by the President 
with respect to such trade agreement or extension shall be introduced 
(by request) in the House by the majority leader of the House, for 
himself and the minority leader of the House, or by Members of the House 
designated by the majority leader and minority leader of the House; and 
shall be introduced (by request) in the Senate by the majority leader of 
the Senate, for himself the minority leader of the Senate, or by Members 
of the Senate designated by the majority leader and minority leader of 
the Senate. If either House is not in session on the day on which such a 
trade agreement is submitted, the implementing bill shall be introduced 
in that House as provided in the preceding sentence, on the first day 
thereafter on which the House is in session. Such bills shall be 
referred by the Presiding Officers of the respective Houses to the 
appropriate committee, or, in the case of a bill containing provisions 
within the jurisdiction of two or more committees, jointly to such 
committees for consideration of those provisions within their respective 
jurisdictions.

introduced in the House shall be referred to the Committee on Ways and 
Means and the approval resolution introduced in the Senate shall be

Representatives or the Senate; and no motion to suspend the application 
of this subsection shall be in order in either House, nor shall it be in 
order in either House for the Presiding Officer to entertain a request 
to suspend the application of this subsection by unanimous consent.

  (e) period for committee and floor consideration.--(1) Except as 
provided in paragraph (2), if the committee or committees of either 
House to which an implementing bill or approval resolution has been 
referred have not reported it at the close of the 45th day after its 
introduction, such committee or committees shall be automatically 
discharged from further consideration of the bill or resolution and it 
shall be placed on the appropriate calendar. A vote on final passage of 
the bill or resolution shall be taken in each House on or before the 
close of the 15th day after the bill or resolution is reported by the 
committee or committees of that House to which it was referred, or after 
such committee or committees have been discharged from further 
consideration of the bill or resolution. If prior to the passage by one 
House of an implementing bill or approval resolution of that House, that 
House receives the same implementing bill or approval resolution from 
the other House, then--

          (A) the procedure in that House shall be the same as if no 

        implementing bill or approval resolution had been received from 

        the other House; but

          (B) the vote on final passage shall be on the implementing 

        bill or approval resolution of the other House.


[[Page 1113]]

tees have not reported such bill at the close of the 15th day after its 
receipt by the Senate (or, if later, before the close of the 45th day 
after the corresponding implementing revenue bill or resolution was 
introduced in the Senate), such committee or committees shall be 
automatically discharged from further consideration of such bill or 
resolution and it shall be placed on the calendar. A vote on final 
passage of such bill or resolution shall be taken in the Senate on or 
before the close of the 15th day after such bill or resolution is 
reported by the committee or committees of the Senate to which it was 
referred, or after such committee or committees have been discharged 
from further consideration of such bill or resolution.
  (2) The provisions of paragraph (1) shall not apply in the Senate to 
an implementing revenue bill or resolution. An implementing revenue bill 
or resolution received from the House shall be referred to the 
appropriate committee or committees of the Senate. If such committee or 
commit

  (3) For purposes of paragraphs (1) and (2), in computing a number of 
days in either House, there shall be excluded any day on which that 
House was not in session.

  (f) floor consideration in the house.--(1) A motion in the House of 
Representatives to proceed to the consideration of an implementing bill 
or approval resolution shall be highly privileged and not debatable. An 
amendment to the motion shall not be in order, nor shall it be in order 
to move to reconsider the vote by which the motion is agreed to or 
disagreed to.

  (2) Debate in the House of Representatives on an implementing bill or 
approval resolution shall be limited to not more than 20 hours, which 
shall be divided equally between those favoring and those opposing the 
bill or resolution. A motion further to limit debate shall not be 
debatable. It shall not be in order to move to recommit an implementing 
bill or approval resolution or to move to reconsider the vote by which 
an implementing bill or approval resolution is agreed to or disagreed 
to.

  (3) Motions to postpone, made in the House of Representatives with 
respect to the consideration of an implementing bill or approval 
resolution, and motions to proceed to the consideration of other 
business, shall be decided without debate.

  (4) All appeals from the decisions of the Chair relating to the 
application of the Rules of the House of Representatives to the 
procedure relating to an implementing bill or approval resolution shall 
be decided without debate.


[[Page 1114]]

  (5) Except to the extent specifically provided in the preceding 
provisions of this subsection, consideration of an implementing bill or 
approval resolution shall be governed by the Rules of the House of 
Representatives applicable to other bills and resolutions in similar 
circumstances.

  (g) floor consideration in the senate.--(1) A motion in the Senate to 
proceed to the consideration of an implementing bill or approval 
resolution shall be privileged and not debatable. An amendment to the 
motion shall not be in order, nor shall it be in order to move to 
reconsider the vote by which the motion is agreed to or disagreed to.

  (2) Debate in the Senate on an implementing, and all debatable motions 
and appeals in connection therewith, shall be limited to not more than 
20 hours. The time shall be equally divided between, and controlled by, 
the majority leader and the minority leader or their designees.

  (3) Debate in the Senate on any debatable motion or appeal in 
connection with an implementing bill or approval resolution shall be 
limited to not more than 1 hour, to be equally divided between, and 
controlled by, the mover and the manager of the bill or resolution, 
except that in the event the manager of the bill or resolution is in 
favor of any such motion or appeal, the time in opposition thereto, 
shall be controlled by the minority leader or his designee. Such 
leaders, or either of them, may, from time under their control on the 
passage of an implementing bill or approval resolution, allot additional 
time to any Senator during the consideration of any debatable motion or 
appeal.


  (4) A motion in the Senate to further limit debate is not debatable. A 
motion to recommit an implementing bill or approval resolution is not in 
order.


[[Page 1115]]

  Pursuant to section 151(f)(2) of this Act debate on an implementing 
revenue bill must be equally divided and controlled among those favoring 
and opposing the bill (absent unanimous-consent agreement for some other 
distribution of the time); a motion to limit debate on such legislation 
must be made in the House, and not in the Committee of the Whole, and 
may be made either pending the motion to resolve into Committee of the 
Whole or at a later time, after the Committee has risen without 
completing action on the bill (July 10, 1979, pp. 17812-13). An 
implementing bill reported from committee has been considered as 
privileged under the Act (Nov. 14, 1980, p. 29617). The House has 
adopted a special order recommended by the Committee on Rules providing 
for consideration of both a resolution to deny the extension of ``fast 
track'' procedures requested by the President under section 1103(b) of 
the Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988 and a resolution to 
express the sense of the House concerning U.S. negotiating objectives 
after such an extension (May 23, 1991, p. 12137). The Senate has 
affirmed its constitutional authority to enact a statutory rule (as in 
subsection (d) of section 151) prohibiting amendments to specified 
revenue bills in derogation of its constitutional authority to propose 
amendments to House revenue bills (presiding officer sustained on

means only--

          (A) a joint resolution of the two Houses of the Congress, the 

        matter after the resolving clause of which is as follows: ``That 

        the Congress does not approve the action taken by, or the 

        determination of the President under section 203 of the Trade 

        Act of 1974 transmitted to the Congress on ------.'', the blank

407(c)(2), with the phrase ``the report of the President submitted under 
section ------ of the Trade Act of 1974 with respect to ------'' (with 
the first blank space being filled with ``402(b)'' or ``409(b)'', as 
appropriate, and the second blank space being filled with the name of 
the country involved).

  (b) reference to committees.--All resolutions introduced in the House 
of Representatives shall be referred to the Committee on Ways and Means 
and all resolutions introduced in the Senate shall be referred to the 
Committee on Finance.

  (c) discharge of committees.--(1) If the committee of either House to 
which a resolution has been referred has not reported it at the end of 
30 days after its introduction, not counting any day which is excluded 
under section 154(b), it is in order to move either to discharge the 
committee from further consideration of the resolution or to discharge 
the committee from further consideration of any other resolution 
introduced with respect to the same matter, except that a motion to 
discharge--

          (A) may only be made on the second legislative day after the 

        calendar day on which the Member making the motion announces to 


[[Page 1116]]

        the House his intention to do so; and

          (B) is not in order after the Committee has reported a

individual favoring the resolution, and is highly privileged in the 
House and privileged in the Senate; and debate thereon shall be limited 
to not more than 1 hour, the time to be divided in the House equally 
between those favoring and those opposing the resolution, and to be

vote by which the motion is agreed to or disagreed to.

  (d) floor consideration in the house.--(1) A motion in the House of 
Representatives to proceed to the consideration of a resolution shall be 
highly privileged and not debatable. An amendment to the motion shall 
not be in order, nor shall it be in order to move to reconsider the vote 
by which the motion is agreed to or disagreed to.

  (2) Debate in the House of Representatives on a resolution shall be 
limited to not more than 20 hours, which shall be divided equally 
between those favoring and those opposing the resolution. A motion 
further to limit debate shall not be debatable. No amendment to, or

order to move to reconsider the vote by which a resolution is agreed to 
or disagreed to.

  (3) Motions to postpone, made in the House of Representatives with 
respect to the consideration of a resolution, and motions to proceed to 
the consideration of other business, shall be decided without debate.

  (4) All appeals from the decisions of the Chair relating to the 
application of the Rules of the House of Representatives to the 
procedure relating to a resolution shall be decided without debate.

  (5) Except to the extent specifically provided in the preceding

House of Representatives shall be governed by the Rules of the House of 
Representatives applicable to other resolutions in similar 
circumstances.


[[Page 1117]]

  (e) floor consideration in the senate.--(1) A motion in the Senate to

connection with a resolution shall be limited to not more than 1 hour, 
to be equally divided between, and controlled by, the mover and the 
manager of the resolution, except that in the event the manager of the 
resolution is in favor of any such motion or appeal, the time in 
opposition thereto, shall be controlled by the minority leader or his 
designee. Such leaders, or either of them, may, from time under their 
control on the passage of a resolution, allot additional time to any 
Senator during the consideration of any debatable motion or appeal.

  (4) A motion in the Senate to further limit debate on a resolution, 
debatable motion, or appeal is not debatable. No amendment to, or motion 
to recommit, a resolution is in order in the Senate.

  (f) procedures in the senate.--(1) Except as otherwise provided in 
this section, the following procedures shall apply in the Senate to a 
resolution to which this section applies:

          (A)(i) Except as provided in clause (ii), a resolution that 

        has passed the House of Representatives shall, when received in 

        the Senate, be referred to the Committee on Finance for 

        consideration in accordance with this section.

          (ii) If a resolution to which this section applies was 

        introduced in the Senate before receipt of a resolution that has 

        passed the House of Representatives, the resolution from the 

        House of Representatives shall, when received in the Senate, be 

        placed on the calendar. If this clause applies, the procedures 

        in the Senate with respect to a resolution introduced in the 

        Senate that contains the identical matter as the resolution that 

        passed the House of Representatives shall be the same as if no 

        resolution had been received from the House of Representatives, 

        except that the vote on passage in the Senate shall be on the 

        resolution that passed the House of Representatives.

          (B) If the Senate passes a resolution before receiving from 

        the House of Representatives a joint resolution that contains 

        the identical matter, the joint resolution shall be held at the 


[[Page 1118]]

        desk pending receipt of the

        joint resolution from the House of Representatives. Upon receipt 

        of the joint resolution from the House of Representatives, such 

        joint resolution shall be deemed to be read twice, considered, 

        read the third time, and passed.

  (2) If the texts of joint resolutions described in section 152 or 
153(a), whichever is applicable concerning any matter are not 
identical--

          (A) the Senate shall vote passage on the resolution introduced 

        in the Senate, and

          (B) the text of the joint resolution passed by the Senate 

        shall, immediately upon its passage (or, if later, upon receipt 

        of the joint resolution passed by the House), be substituted for 

        the text of the joint resolution passed by the House of 

        Representatives, and such resolution, as amended, shall be 

        returned with a request for a conference between the two Houses.


  (3) Consideration in the Senate of any veto message with respect to a 
joint resolution described in subsection (a)(2)(B) or section 153(a), 
including consideration of all debatable motions and appeals in 
connection therewith, shall be limited to 10 hours, to be equally 
divided between, and controlled by, the majority leader and the minority 
leader or their designees.


  Although a motion that the House resolve itself into the Committee of 
the Whole is not ordinarily subject to the motion to postpone 
indefinitely (VI, 726), the motion to postpone indefinitely may be 
offered pursuant to the provisions of this statute, is nondebatable, and 
represents final adverse disposition of the disapproval resolution (Mar. 
10, 1977, p. 7021).

or to striking out or inserting a with-respect-to clause. Debate in the 
House of Representatives on any amendment to a resolution shall be

to further limit debate on an amendment to a resolution is not 
debatable.

  (4) That part of section 152(e)(4) which provides that no amendment is 
in order shall not apply to any amendment to a resolution which is 
limited to striking out or inserting the names of one or more countries

amendment to a resolution shall be limited to not more than 1 hour, to 
be equally divided between, and controlled by, the mover and the manager 
of the resolution, except that in the event the manager of the 
resolution is in favor of any such amendment, the time in opposition 
thereto shall be controlled by the minority leader or his designee. The 
majority leader and minority leader may, from time under the control on 
the passage of a resolution, allot additional time to any Senator during 
the consideration of any amendment. A motion in the Senate to further 
limit debate on an amendment to a resolution is not debatable.

  (c) consideration of second resolution not in order.--It shall not be 
in order in either the House of Representatives or the Senate to 
consider a resolution with respect to a recommendation of the President

resolution with respect to the same recommendation.

  (d) procedures relating to conference reports in the senate.--(1) 
Consideration in the Senate of the conference report on any joint 
resolution described in subsection (a), including consideration of all 
amendments in disagreement (and all amendments thereto), and

                            [19 U.S.C. 3803]

          (1) In general.--Whenever the President determines that one or 

        more existing duties or other import restrictions of any foreign 

        country or the United States are unduly burdening and 

        restricting the foreign trade of the United States and that the 

        purposes, policies, priorities, and objectives of this title 


[[Page 1128]]

        will be promoted thereby, the President--

                  (A) may enter into trade agreements with foreign 

                countries before--

                        (i) July 1, 2005; or

                        (ii) July 1, 2007, if trade authorities 

                    procedures are extended under subsection (c); and

                  (B) may, subject to paragraphs (2) and (3), proclaim--

                        (i) such modification or continuance of any 

                    existing duty,

                        (ii) such continuance of existing duty-free or 

                    excise treatment, or

                        (iii) such additional duties,

                as the President determines to be required or 

                appropriate to carry out any such trade agreement.

        The President shall notify the Congress of the President's 

        intention to enter into an agreement under this subsection.

          (2) Limitations.--No proclamation may be made under paragraph 

        (1) that--

                  (A) reduces any rate of duty (other than a rate of 

                duty that does not exceed 5 percent ad valorem on the 

                date of the enactment of this Act) to a rate of duty 

                which is less than 50 percent of the rate of such duty 

                that applies on such date of enactment;

                  (B) reduces the rate of duty below that applicable 

                under the Uruguay Round Agreements, on any import 

                sensitive agricultural product; or

                  (C) increases any rate of duty above the rate that 

                applied on the date of the enactment of this Act.

          (3) Aggregate reduction; exemption from staging.--

                  (A) Aggregate reduction.--Except as provided in 

                subparagraph (B), the aggregate reduction in the rate of 

                duty on any article which is in effect on any day 

                pursuant to a trade agreement entered into under 

                paragraph (1) shall not exceed the aggregate reduction 

                which would have been in effect on such day if--

                        (i) a reduction of 3 percent ad valorem or a 

                    reduction of one-tenth of the total reduction, 

                    whichever is greater, had taken effect on the 

                    effective date of the first reduction proclaimed 

                    under paragraph (1) to carry out such agreement with 


[[Page 1129]]

                    respect to such article; and

                        (ii) a reduction equal to the amount applicable 

                    under clause (i) had taken effect at 1-year 

                    intervals after the effective date of such first 

                    reduction.

                  (B) Exemption from staging.--No staging is required 

                under subparagraph (A) with respect to a duty reduction 

                that is proclaimed under paragraph (1) for an article of 

                a kind that is not produced in the United States. The 

                United States International Trade Commission shall 

                advise the President of the identity of articles that 

                may be exempted from staging under this subparagraph.

          (4) Rounding.--If the President determines that such action 

        will simplify the computation of reductions under paragraph (3), 

        the President may round an annual reduction by an amount equal 

        to the lesser of--

                  (A) the difference between the reduction without 

                regard to this paragraph and the next lower whole 

                number; or

                  (B) one-half of 1 percent ad valorem.

          (5) Other limitations.--A rate of duty reduction that may not 

        be proclaimed by reason of paragraph (2) may take effect only if 

        a provision authorizing such reduction is included within an 

        implementing bill provided for under section 2105 and that bill 

        is enacted into law.

          (6) Other tariff modifications.--Notwithstanding paragraphs 

        (1)(B), (2)(A), (2)(C), and (3) through (5), and subject to the 

        consultation and layover requirements of section 115 of the 

        Uruguay Round Agreements Act, the President may proclaim the 

        modification of any duty or staged rate reduction of any duty 

        set forth in Schedule XX, as defined in section 2(5) of that 

        Act, if the United States agrees to such modification or staged 

        rate reduction in a negotiation for the reciprocal elimination 

        or harmonization of duties under the auspices of the World Trade 

        Organization.

          (7) Authority under uruguay round agreements act not 

        affected.--Nothing in this subsection shall limit the authority

                or any other barrier to, or other distortion of, 

                international trade unduly burdens or restricts the 

                foreign trade of the United States or adversely affects 

                the United States economy, or

                  (ii) the imposition of any such barrier or distortion 

                is likely to result in such a burden, restriction, or 

                effect,

        and that the purposes, policies, priorities, and objectives of

                extended under subsection (c).

          (2) Conditions.--A trade agreement may be entered into under 

        this subsection only if such agreement makes progress in meeting 

        the applicable objectives described in section 2102(a) and (b) 

        and the President satisfies the conditions set forth in section 

        2104.

        title referred to as ``trade authorities procedures'') apply to 

        a bill of either House of Congress which contains provisions

  (d) Commencement of Negotiations.--In order to contribute to the 
continued economic expansion of the United States, the President shall 
commence negotiations covering tariff and nontariff barriers affecting 
any industry, product, or service sector, and expand existing sectoral 
agreements to countries that are not parties to those agreements, in 
cases where the President determines that such negotiations are feasible 
and timely and would benefit the United States. Such sectors include 
agriculture, commercial services, intellectual property rights, 
industrial and capital goods, government procurement, information 
technology products, environmental technology and services, medical 
equipment and services, civil aircraft, and infrastructure products. In 
so doing, the President shall take into account all of the principal 
negotiating objectives set forth in section 2102(b).

  (a) Notice and Consultation Before Negotiation.--The President, with 
respect to any agreement that is subject to the provisions of section 
2103(b), shall--

          (1) provide, at least 90 calendar days before initiating 

        negotiations, written notice to the Congress of the President's 

        intention to enter into the negotiations and set forth therein 

        the date the President intends to initiate such negotiations, 

        the specific United States objectives for the negotiations, and 

        whether the President intends to seek an agreement, or changes 

        to an existing agreement;

          (2) before and after submission of the notice, consult 

        regarding the negotiations with the Committee on Finance of the 

        Senate and the Committee on Ways and Means of the House of 

        Representatives, such other committees of the House and Senate 

        as the President deems appropriate, and the Congressional 

        Oversight group convened under section 2107; and

          (3) upon the request of a majority of the members of the 

        Congressional Oversight Group under section 2107(c), meet with 

        the Congressional Oversight Group before initiating the 

        negotiations or at any other time concerning the negotiations.

  (b) Negotiations Regarding Agriculture.--

          (1) In general.--Before initiating or continuing negotiations 

        the subject matter of which is directly related to the subject 

        matter under section 2102(b)(10)(A)(i) with any country, the 

        President shall assess whether United States tariffs on 

        agricultural products that were bound under the Uruguay Round 

        Agreements are lower than the tariffs bound by that country. In 

        addition, the President shall consider whether the tariff levels 

        bound and applied throughout the world with respect to imports 

        from the United States are higher than United States tariffs and 

        whether the negotiation provides an opportunity to address any 

        such disparity. The President shall consult with the Committee 

        on Ways and Means and the Committee on Agriculture of the House 

        of Representatives and the Committee on Finance and the 

        Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry of the Senate 

        concerning the results of the assessment, whether it is 

        appropriate for the United States to agree to further tariff 

        reductions based on the conclusions reached in the assessment, 


[[Page 1135]]

        and how all applicable negotiating objectives will be met.

          (2) Special consultations on import sensitive products.--(A) 

        Before initiating negotiations with regard to agriculture, and, 

        with respect to the Free Trade Area for the Americas and 

        negotiations with regard to agriculture under the auspices of 

        the World Trade Organization, as soon as practicable after the 

        enactment of this Act, the United States Trade Representative 

        shall--

                  (i) identify those agricultural products subject to 

                tariff-rate quotas on the date of enactment of this Act, 

                and agricultural products subject to tariff reductions 

                by the United States as a result of the Uruguay Round 

                Agreements, for which the rate of duty was reduced on 

                January 1, 1995, to a rate which was not less than 97.5 

                percent of the rate of duty that applied to such article 

                on December 31, 1994;

                  (ii) consult with the Committee on Ways and Means and 

                the Committee on Agriculture of the House of 

                Representatives and the Committee on Finance and the 

                Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry of the 

                Senate concerning--

                        (I) whether any further tariff reductions on the 

                    products identified under clause (i) should be 

                    appropriate, taking into account the impact of any 

                    such tariff reduction on the United States industry 

                    producing the product concerned;

                        (II) whether the products so identified face 

                    unjustified sanitary or phytosanitary restrictions, 

                    including those not based on scientific principles 

                    in contravention of the Uruguay Round Agreements; 

                    and

                        (III) whether the countries participating in the 

                    negotiations maintain export subsidies or other 

                    programs, policies, or practices that distort world 

                    trade in such products and the impact of such 

                    programs, policies, and practices on United States 

                    producers of the products;

                  (iii) request that the International Trade Commission 

                prepare an assessment of the probable economic effects 

                of any such tariff reduction on the United States 

                industry producing the product concerned and on the 


[[Page 1136]]

                United States economy as a whole; and

                  (iv) upon complying with clauses (i), (ii), and (iii), 

                notify the Committee on Ways and Means and the Committee 

                on Agriculture of the House of Representatives and the

                Nutrition, and Forestry of the Senate of those products 

                identified under clause (i) for which the Trade 

                Representative intends to seek tariff liberalization in 

                the negotiations and the reasons for seeking such tariff 

                liberalization.

          (B) If, after negotiations described in subparagraph (A) are 

        commenced--

                  (i) the United States Trade Representative identifies 

                any additional agricultural product described in 

                subparagraph (A)(i) for tariff reductions which were not 

                the subject of a notification under subparagraph 

                (A)(iv), or

                  (ii) any additional agricultural product described in 

                subparagraph (A)(i) is the subject of a request for 

                tariff reductions by a party to the negotiations,

        the Trade Representative shall, as soon as practicable, notify 

        the committees referred to in subparagraph (A)(iv) of those 

        products and the reasons for seeking such tariff reductions.

          (3) Negotiations Regarding the Fishing Industry.--Before 

        initiating, or continuing, negotiations which directly relate to 

        fish or shellfish trade with any country, the President shall 

        consult with the Committee on Ways and Means and the Committee 

        on Resources of the House of Representatives, and the Committee 

        on Finance and the Committee on Commerce, Science, and 

        Transportation of the Senate, and shall keep the Committees 

        apprised of negotiations on an ongoing and timely basis.

        products shall cease to have force and effect upon the enactment 

        of a disapprovalresolution, provided for in paragraph (2), 

        relating to that action.

          (2)(A) This paragraph is enacted by the Congress--

                procedures to be followed

                in that House in the case of disapproval resolutions and 

                such procedures supersede other rules only to the extent 

                that they are inconsistent therewith; and

                  (ii) with the 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 any other 

                rule of that House.

          (B) For purposes of this subsection, the term ``disapproval 

        resolution'' means only a joint resolution of either House of 

        Congress the matter after the resolving clause of which is as 

        follows: ``That the Congress disapproves the action taken under 

        section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962 with respect to 

        petroleum imports under ------------ dated ------------.'', the 

        first blank space being filled with the number of the

        shall be referred to the Committee on Finance.

          (ii) No amendment to a disapproval resolution shall be in 

        order in either the House of Representatives or the Senate, and 

        no motion to suspend the application of this clause shall be in 

        order in either House nor shall it be in order in either House 

        for the Presiding Officer to entertain a request to suspend the 


        application of this clause by unanimous consent.

be passed by recorded vote to reflect the vote of each Member of 
Congress thereon.

  (B)(i) The provisions of this subparagraph are enacted by the 
Congress--

          (I) as an exercise of the rulemaking power of the Senate and 

        the House of Representatives and as such shall be considered as 

        part of the rules of each House, and shall supersede other rules 

        only to the extent that they are inconsistent therewith; and

        or dates of all or part (as the case may be) of such 

        recommendations (other than any provision of law enacted with 

        respect to such recommendations in the period beginning on the 

        date the President transmits his recommendations to the Congress 

        under subsection (h) [2 U.S.C. 358] and ending on the date of 

        their approval under subsection (i)(2) [2 U.S.C. 359(2)]), and

          (B) any prior recommendations of the President which take 


        effect under this chapter.


  In 1985, the Salary Act was amended to require a salary commission 
report with respect to fiscal year 1987. The President transmitted his 
recommendations concerning that report in his fiscal year 1988 Budget 
message (Jan. 5, 1987, H. Doc. 100-11). Since not disapproved by the 
Congress in accordance with the Salary Act (2 U.S.C. 359), those 
recommendations took effect on March 1, 1987. On return to the normal 
quadrennial cycle, the President transmitted with his fiscal year 1990 
Budget message recommendations concerning a salary commission report 
with respect to fiscal year 1989 (Jan. 9, 1989, H. Doc. 101-21). Those 
recommendations were disapproved by Public Law 101-1 (H. J. Res. 129, 
101st Cong., Feb. 7, 1989, p. 1708). In 1989, the Salary Act was amended 
to redesignate the Commission, refine the parameters for quadrennial 
adjustments, and provide for privileged consideration of legislation to 
approve adjustments recommended by the President. The quadrennial review 
contemplated by the statute has not occurred since 1993. Adjustments are 
to maintain equal levels of pay among the Speaker, the Vice President, 
and the Chief Justice; among the Majority and Minority Leaders, the 
President pro tempore of the Senate, and level I of the Executive 
Schedule; and among Representatives, Senators, certain judges, and level 
II of the Executive Schedule (2 U.S.C. 362).

authority to issue ``pay orders'' is stated as follows:

  Under section 311(d) of the Legislative Branch Appropriations Act, 
1988 (2 U.S.C. 60a-2a), the Speaker may adjust pay levels for officers 
and employees of the House to maintain certain relationships with

disbursed by the Secretary of the Senate, or whenever any of the events 
described in paragraph (2) occurs, the Speaker of the House of 
Representatives may adjust the rates of pay (and any minimum or maximum 
rate, limitation, or allowance) applicable to personnel whose pay is 
disbursed by the Clerk of the House of Representatives to the extent 
necessary to ensure--

[[Page 1154]]

  Sec. 551. (a) For purposes of this section, the term ``energy action'' 
means any matter required to be transmitted, or submitted to the 
Congress in accordance with the procedures of this section.

  (b) The President shall transmit any energy action (bearing an 
identification number) to both Houses of Congress on the same day. If 
both Houses are not in session on the day any energy action is received 
by the appropriate officers of each House, for purposes of this section 
such energy action shall be deemed to have transmitted on the first 
succeeding day on which both Houses are in session.

  (c)(1) Except as provided in paragraph (2) of this subsection, if 
energy action is transmitted to the Houses of Congress, such action 
shall take effect at the end of the first period of 15 calendar days of 
continuous session of Congress after the date on which such action is 
transmitted to such Houses, unless between the date of transmittal and 
the end of such 15-day period, either House passes a resolution stating 
in substance that such House does not favor such action.

  (2) An energy action described in paragraph (1) may take effect prior 
to the expiration of the 15-calendar-day period after the date on which 
such action is transmitted, if each House of Congress approves a 
resolution affirmatively stating in substance that such House does not 
object to such action.

  (d) For the purpose of subsection (c) of this section--

          (1) continuity of session is broken only by an adjournment of 

        Congress sine die; and

          (2) the days on which either House is not in session because 

        of an adjournment of more than 3 days to a day certain are 

        excluded in the computation of the 15-calendar-day period.

  (e) Under provisions contained in an energy action, a provision of 
such an action may take effect on a date later than the date on which 
such action otherwise takes effect pursuant to the provisions of this 
section.

  (f)(1) This subsection is enacted by Congress--

          (A) as an exercise of the rulemaking power of the Senate and 

        the 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 resolutions described by paragraph (2) 

        of this subsection; and it supersedes other rules only to the 

        extent that is inconsistent therewith; and

          (B) with full recognition of the constitutional right of 

        either House to change the rules (so far as relating to the 


[[Page 1155]]

        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 the House.

  (2) For purposes of this subsection, the term ``resolution'' means 
only a resolution of either House of Congress described in subparagraph 
(A) or (B) of this paragraph.

          (A) A resolution the matter after the resolving clause of 

        which is as follows: ``That the ------ does not object to the 

        energy action numbered ------ submitted to the Congress on ----

        --, 19--.'', the first blank space therein being filled with the 

        name of the resolving House and the other blank spaces being 

        appropriately filled; but does not include a resolution which 

        specifies more than one energy action.

          (B) A resolution the matter after the resolving clause of 

        which is as follows: ``That the ------ does not favor the energy 

        action numbered ------ transmitted to Congress on ------, 

        19--.'', the first blank space therein being filled with the 

        name of the resolving House and other blank spaces therein being 

        appropriately filled; but does not include a resolution which 

        specifies more than one energy action.

  (3) A resolution once introduced with respect to an energy action 
shall immediately be referred to a committee (and all resolutions with 
respect to the same plan shall be referred to the same committee) by the 
President of the Senate or the Speaker of the House of Representatives, 
as the case may be.

  (4)(A) If the committee to which a resolution with respect to an 
energy action has been referred has not reported it at the end of 5 
calendar days after its referral, it shall be in order to move either to 
discharge the committee from further consideration of such resolution or 
to discharge the committee from further consideration of any other 
resolution with respect to such energy action which has been referred to 
the committee.


[[Page 1156]]

  (B) A motion to discharge may be made only by an individual favoring 
the resolution, shall be highly privileged (except that it may not be 
made after the committee has reported a resolution with respect to the 
same energy action), and debate thereon shall be limited to not more 
than one hour, to be divided equally between those favoring and those 
opposing the resolution. An amendment to the motion shall not be in 
order, and it shall not be in order to move to reconsider the vote by 
which the motion was agreed to or disagreed to.

  (C) If the motion to discharge is agreed to or disagreed to, the 
motion may not be renewed, nor may another motion to discharge the 
committee be made with respect to any other resolution with respect to 
the same energy action.

  (5)(A) When the committee has reported, or has been discharged from 
further consideration of, a resolution, it shall be at any time 
thereafter in order (even though a previous motion to the same effect 
has been disagreed to) to move to proceed to the consideration of the 
resolution. The motion shall be highly privileged and shall not be 
debatable. An amendment to the motion shall not be in order, and it 
shall not be in order to move to reconsider the vote by which the motion 
was agreed to or disagreed to.

  (B) Debate on the resolution referred to in subparagraph (A) of this 
paragraph shall be limited to not more than 10 hours, which shall be 
divided equally between those favoring and those opposing such 
resolution. A motion further to limit debate shall not be debatable. An 
amendment to, or motion to recommit, the resolution shall not be in 
order, and it shall not be in order to move to reconsider the vote by 
which such resolution was agreed to or disagreed to; except that it 
shall be in order--

          (i) to offer an amendment in the nature of a substitute, 

        consisting of the text of a resolution described in paragraph 

        (2)(A) of this subsection with respect to an energy action, for 

        a resolution described in paragraph (2)(B) of this subsection 

        with respect to the same such action, or

          (ii) to offer an amendment in the nature of a substitute, 

        consisting of the text of a resolution described in paragraph 

        (2)(B) of this subsection with respect to an energy action, for 

        a resolution described in paragraph (2)(A) of this subsection 

        with respect to the same such action.
The amendments described in clauses (i) and (ii) of this subparagraph 
shall not be amendable.

  (6)(A) Motions to postpone, made with respect to the discharge from 
committee, or the consideration of a resolution and motions to proceed 
to the consideration of other business, shall be decided without debate.


[[Page 1157]]

  (B) Appeals from the decision of the Chair relating to the application 
of the rules of the Senate or the House of Representatives, as the case 
may be, to the procedure relating to a resolution shall be decided 
without debate.


  (7) Notwithstanding any of the provisions of this subsection, if a 
House has approved a resolution with respect to an energy action, then 
it shall not be in order to consider in that House any other resolution 
with respect to the same such action.

  These statutory procedures have been used for consideration of a 
motion to discharge a committee from consideration of a resolution 
disapproving an ``energy action'' under Public Law 94-163 (Apr. 13, 
1976, p. 10794; May 27, 1976, p. 15772).

        in section 3(8) of the Energy Policy and Conservation Act [42 

        U.S.C. 6202(8)], or

          (B) finds, and publishes such finding, that a national or 

        regional fuel supply shortage exists or may exist which the 

        President determines--

                  (i) is, or is likely to be, of significant scope and 

                duration, and of an emergency nature;

                  (ii) causes, or may cause, major adverse impact on 

                public health, safety, or welfare or on the economy; and

                  (iii) results, or is likely to result, from an 

                interruption in the supply of coal or from sabotage, or 

                an act of God;
the President may, by order, allocate (and require the transportation 
thereof) for the use of any electrical powerplant or major fuel-burning 
installation, in accordance with such terms and conditions as he may 
prescribe, to insure reliability of electric service or prevent 
unemployment, or protect public health, safety, or welfare.

this section, any suspension of emission limitations or other 
requirements of applicable implementation plans, as defined in section 
110(d) of the Clean Air Act [42 U.S.C. 7410(d)], required by such 
prohibition shall be issued only in accordance with section 110(f) of 
the Clean Air Act [42 U.S.C. 7410(f)].
  (b) emergency prohibition on use of natural gas or petroleum.--If the 
President declares a severe energy supply interruption, as defined in 
section 3(8) of the Energy Policy and Conservation Act [42 U.S.C. 
6202(8)], the President may, by order, prohibit any electric powerplant 
or major fuelburning installation from using natural gas or petroleum, 
or both, as a primary energy source for the

  (c) emergency stays.--The President may, by order, stay the 
application of any provision of this act, or any rule or order 
thereunder, applicable to any new or existing electric powerplant, if 
the President finds, and publishes such finding, that an emergency 
exists, due to national, regional, or systemwide shortages of coal or 
other alternate fuels, or disruption of transportation facilities, which 
emergency is likely to affect reliability of service of any such 
electric powerplant.

  (d) duration of emergency orders.--(1) Except as provided in paragraph 
(3), any order issued by the President under this section shall not be 
effective for longer than the duration of the interruption or emergency, 
or 90 days, whichever is less.

  (2) Any such order may be extended by a subsequent order which the 
President shall transmit to the Congress in accordance with section 551 
of the Energy Policy and Conservation Act [42 U.S.C. 6421]. Such order 
shall be subject to congressional review pursuant to such section.

  (3) Notwithstanding paragraph (1), the effectiveness of any order 
issued under this section shall not terminate under this subsection 
during the 15-calendar-day period during which any such subsequent order 
described in paragraph (2) is subject to congressional review under 
section 551 of the Energy Policy and Conservation Act [42 U.S.C. 6421].

under this Act, the Secretary is authorized to enter into contracts with 
any person who generates or holds title to high-level radioactive waste, 
or spent nuclear fuel, of domestic origin for the acceptance of title, 
subsequent transportation, and disposal of such waste or spent fuel. 
Such contracts shall provide for payment to the Secretary of fees 
pursuant to paragraphs (2) and (3) sufficient to offset expenditures 
described in subsection (d).

  (4) Not later than 180 days after the date of enactment of this Act, 
the Secretary shall establish procedures for the collection and payment 
of the fees established by paragraph (2) and paragraph (3). The 
Secretary shall annually review the amount of the fees established by 
paragraphs (2) and (3) above to evaluate whether collection of the fee 
will provide sufficient revenues to offset the costs as defined in 
subsection (d) herein. In the event the Secretary determines that either 
insufficient or excess revenues are being collected, in order to recover 
the costs incurred by the Federal Government that are specified in 
subsection (d), the Secretary shall propose an adjustment to the fee to 
insure full cost recovery. The Secretary shall immediately transmit this 
proposal for such an adjustment to Congress. The adjusted fee proposed 
by the Secretary shall be effective after a period of 90 days of 
continuous session have elapsed following the receipt of such 
transmittal unless during such 90-day period either House of Congress 
adopts a resolution disapproving the Secretary's proposed adjustment in 
accordance with the procedures set forth for congressional review of an 
energy action under section 551 of the Energy Policy and Conservation 
Act [42 U.S.C. 6421].

shall be highly privileged (except that it may not be made after the 
committee has reported such a resolution), and debate thereon shall be 
limited to not more than one hour, to be divided equally between those 
favoring and those opposing the resolution. An amendment to the motion 
shall not be in order, and it shall not be in order to move to 
reconsider the vote by which the motion was agreed to or disagreed to. 
If the motion to discharge is agreed to or disagreed to, the motion may 
not be made with respect to any other resolution with respect to the 
same Presidential recommendation. When the committee has reported, or 
has been discharged from further consideration of a resolution, it shall 
at any time thereafter be in order (even though a previous motion to the 
same effect has been disagreed to) to move to proceed to the 
consideration of the resolution. The motion shall be highly privileged

Secretary shall determine whether, and for how long, the continuation of 
the existing withdrawal of the lands would be, in his judgment, 
consistent with the statutory objectives of the programs for which the 
lands were dedicated and of the other relevant programs. The Secretary 
shall report his recommendations to the President, together with 
statements of concurrence or nonconcurrence submitted by the heads of 
the departments or agencies which administer the lands. The President 
shall transmit this report to the President of the Senate and the 
Speaker of the House of Representatives, together with his 
recommendations for action by the Secretary, or for legislation. The 
Secretary may act to terminate withdrawals other than those made by Act 
of the Congress in accordance with the recommendations of the President 
unless before the end of ninety days (not counting days on which the 
Senate and the House of Representatives has adjourned for more than 
three consecutive days) beginning on the day the report of the President 
has been submitted to the Senate and the House of Representatives the 
Congress has adopted a concurrent resolution indicating otherwise. If 
the committee to which a resolution has been referred during the said 
ninety day period has not reported it at the end of thirty calendar days 
after its referral, it shall be in order to either discharge the 
committee from further consideration of such resolution or to discharge 
the committee from consideration of any other resolution with respect to 
the Presidential recommendation. A motion to

 28. Congressional Review of Agency Rulemaking [5 U.S.C. 801, 802, 804]

                                                           Sec. 1130(28)


  The following excerpts of chapter 8 of title 5, United States Code, do 
not contain privileged procedures for the consideration of a measure in 
the House. They are depicted here because they constitute Rules of the 
House and potentially affect the legislative process. Detailed 
procedures for the consideration in the Senate of a joint resolution 
disapproving an agency rule may be found in the statute (5 U.S.C. 802).


  Sec. 801. congressional review.

  (a)(1)(A) Before a rule can take effect, the Federal agency 
promulgating such rule shall submit to each House of the Congress and to 
the Comptroller General a report containing--

          (i) a copy of the rule;

          (ii) a concise general statement relating to the rule, 

        including whether it is a major rule; and

          (iii) the proposed effective date of the rule.

  (B) On the date of the submission of the report under subparagraph 
(A), the Federal agency promulgating the rule shall submit to the 
Comptroller General and make available to each House of Congress--

          (i) a complete copy of the cost-benefit analysis of the rule, 

        if any;

          (ii) the agency's actions relevant to sections 603, 604, 605, 

        607, and 609;

          (iii) the agency's actions relevant to sections 202, 203, 204, 

        and 205 of the Unfunded Mandates Reform Act of 1995 [2 U.S.C. 

        1532-35]; and

          (iv) any other relevant information or requirements under any 

        other Act and any relevant Executive orders.

  (C) Upon receipt of a report submitted under subparagraph (A), each 
House shall provide copies of the report to the chairman and ranking 
member of each standing committee with jurisdiction under the rules of 
the House of Representatives or the Senate to report a bill to amend the 
provision of law under which the rule is issued.


[[Page 1207]]

shall include an assessment of the agency's compliance with procedural 
steps required by paragraph (1)(B).
  (2)(A) The Comptroller General shall provide a report on each major 
rule to the committees of jurisdiction in each House of the Congress by 
the end of 15 calendar days after the submission or publication date as 
provided in section 802(b)(2). The report of the Comptroller General

  (B) Federal agencies shall cooperate with the Comptroller General by 
providing information relevant to the Comptroller General's report under 
subparagraph (A).

  (3) A major rule relating to a report submitted under paragraph (1) 
shall take effect on the latest of--

          (A) the later of the date occurring 60 days after the date on 

        which--

                  (i) the Congress receives the report submitted under 

                paragraph (1); or

                  (ii) the rule is published in the Federal Register, if 

                so published;

          (B) if the Congress passes a joint resolution of disapproval 

        described in section 802 relating to the rule, and the President 

        signs a veto of such resolution, the earlier date--

                  (i) on which either House of Congress votes and fails 

                to override the veto of the President; or

                  (ii) occurring 30 session days after the date on which 

                the Congress received the veto and objections of the 

                President; or

          (C) the date the rule would have otherwise taken effect, if 

        not for this section (unless a joint resolution of disapproval 

        under section 802 is enacted).

  (4) Except for a major rule, a rule shall take effect as otherwise 
provided by law after submission to Congress under paragraph (1).

  (5) Notwithstanding paragraph (3), the effective date of a rule shall 
not be delayed by operation of this chapter beyond the date on which 
either House of Congress votes to reject a joint resolution of 
disapproval under section 802.

  (b)(1) A rule shall not take effect (or continue), if the Congress 
enacts a joint resolution of disapproval, described under section 802, 
of the rule.

  (2) A rule that does not take effect (or does not continue) under 
paragraph (1) may not be reissued in substantially the same form, and a 
new rule that is substantially the same as such a rule may not be 
issued, unless the reissued or new rule is specifically authorized by a 
law enacted after the date of the joint resolution disapproving the 
original rule.

graph (2) and submits written notice of such determination to the 
Congress.
  (c)(1) Notwithstanding any other provision of this section (except 
subject to paragraph (3)), a rule that would not take effect by reason 
of subsection (a)(3) may take effect, if the President makes a 
determination under para

  (2) Paragraph (1) applies to a determination made by the President by 
Executive order that the rule should take effect because such rule is--

          (A) necessary because of an imminent threat to health or 

        safety or other emergency;

          (B) necessary for the enforcement of criminal laws;

          (C) necessary for national security; or

          (D) issued pursuant to any statute implementing an 

        international trade agreement.

  (3) An exercise by the President of the authority under this 
subsection shall have no effect on the procedures under section 802 or 
the effect of a joint resolution of disapproval under this section.

  (d)(1) In addition to the opportunity for review otherwise provided 
under this chapter, in the case of any rule for which a report was 
submitted in accordance with subsection (a)(1)(A) during the period 
beginning on the date occurring--

          (A) in the case of the Senate, 60 session days, or

          (B) in the case of the House of Representatives, 60 

        legislative days,
before the date the Congress adjourns a session of Congress through the 
date on which the same or succeeding Congress first convenes its next 
session, section 802 shall apply to such rule in the succeeding session 
of Congress.

  (2)(A) In applying section 802 for purposes of such additional review, 
a rule described under paragraph (1) shall be treated as though--

          (i) such rule were published in the Federal Register (as a 

        rule that shall take effect) on--

                  (I) in the case of the Senate, the 15th session day, 

                or

                  (II) in the case of the House of Representatives, the 

                15th legislative day,

        after the succeeding session of Congress first convenes; and

          (ii) a report on such rule were submitted to Congress under 

        subsection (a)(1) on such date.


[[Page 1209]]

  (B) Nothing in this paragraph shall be construed to affect the 
requirement under subsection (a)(1) that a report shall be submitted to 
Congress before a rule can take effect.


  (3) A rule described under paragraph (1) shall take effect as 
otherwise provided by law (including other subsections of this section).


                                  * * *

  (f) Any rule that takes effect and later is made of no force or effect 
by enactment of a joint resolution under section 802 shall be treated as 
though such rule had never taken effect.


  (g) If the Congress does not enact a joint resolution of disapproval 
under section 802 respecting a rule, no court or agency may infer any 
intent of the Congress from any action or inaction of the Congress with 
regard to such rule, related statute, or joint resolution of 
disapproval.

only a joint resolution introduced in the period beginning on the date

                                  * * *

  (f) If, before the passage by one House of a joint resolution of that 
House described in subsection (a), that House receives from the other 
House a joint resolution described in subsection (a), then the following 
procedures shall apply:

[[Page 1210]]

        referred to a committee.

        (a) of the House receiving the joint resolution--

                  (A) the procedure in that House shall be the same as 

                if no joint resolution had been received from the other

provisions of the Act that relate directly to House procedure. Sections 
258, 258A, 258B, and 258C primarily provide for reporting and 
consideration of legislation in the Senate; therefore, only portions of 
those sections are carried here. A more thorough understanding of the 
statutory scheme requires the full statutory text (see 2 U.S.C. 900).

if--

          (1) during the period consisting of the quarter during which 

        such notification is given, the quarter preceding such 

        notification and the 4 quarters following such notification, CBO 

        or OMB has determined that real economic growth is projected or 

        estimated to be less than zero with respect to each of any 2 

        consecutive quarters within such period; or

        Representatives may, and the Majority Leader of the Senate 

        shall, introduce a joint resolution (in the form set forth in 

        paragraph (2)) declaring that the conditions specified in 

        section 254(j) are met and suspending the relevant provisions of 

        this title, titles III and VI of the Congressional Budget Act of 

        1974, and section 1103 of title 31, United States Code.

          (2) Form of joint resolution.--

                resolution introduced pursuant to paragraph (1) shall be 

                as follows: ``That the Congress declares that the 

                conditions specified in section 254(j) of the Balanced 

                Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 are

                31, United States Code, and part C of the Balanced 

                Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 are 

                modified as described in section 258(b) of the Balanced 

                Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.''.

                  (B) The title of the joint resolution shall be ``Joint 

                resolution suspending certain provisions of law pursuant 

                to section 258(a)(2) of the Balanced Budget and

        shall report the joint resolution to its House without amendment 

        on or before the fifth day on which such House is in session 

        after the date on which the joint resolution is introduced. If 

        the Committee fails to report the joint resolution within the 

        five-day period referred to in the preceding sentence, it shall

        the close of the fifth calendar day of session after the date on 

        which the joint resolution is reported or after the Committee 

        has been discharged from further consideration of the joint 

        resolution. If prior to the passage by one House of a joint 

        resolution of that House, that House receives the same joint 

        resolution from the other House, then--

                  (i) the procedure in that House shall be the same as

                resolution of the other House.

        When the joint resolution is agreed to, the Clerk of the House 

        of Representatives (in the case of a House joint resolution 

        agreed to in the House of Representatives) or the Secretary of 

        the Senate (in the case of a Senate joint resolution agreed to 

        in the Senate) shall cause the joint resolution to be engrossed, 

        certified, and transmitted to the other House of the Congress as 


        soon as practicable.

                under subsection (a) in the Senate--

                        (i) the procedure in the Senate shall be the 

                    same as if no joint resolution had been received 

                    from the House; but

                    resolution as amended by the text of the Senate 

                    joint resolution.

        under subsection (a) after the Senate has disposed of a Senate 

        originated resolution which is identical to the House passed 

        joint resolution, the action of the Senate with regard to the 

        disposition of the Senate originated joint resolution shall be

reductions, the President may provide for lesser reductions in new 
budget authority and unobligated balances for other programs, projects, 
or activities within major functional category 050 for such fiscal year, 
but only to the extent that the resulting outlay increases do not exceed 
the additional outlay reductions, and no such program, project, or 
activity may be increased above the level actually made available by law

        start of the next session of Congress; and

          (3) a joint resolution affirming or modifying the changes 

        proposed by the President pursuant to this paragraph becomes

resolution introduced under subsection (d) after the Senate has disposed 
of a Senate originated joint resolution which is identical to the House 
passed joint resolution, the action of the Senate with regard to the 
disposition of the Senate originated joint resolution shall be deemed to 
be the action of the Senate with regard to the House originated joint 
resolution. If it is not identical to the House passed joint resolution, 
then the Senate shall be considered to have passed the joint resolution 
of the House as amended by the text of the Senate joint resolution.

        hours. At the conclusion of consideration of the legislation for 

        amendment, the Committee shall rise and report the legislation 

        to the House with such amendments as may have been adopted. The 

        previous question shall be considered as ordered on the 

        legislation and amendments thereto to final passage without 

        intervening motion except one motion to recommit with or without 

        instructions. If the Committee of the Whole rises and reports 

        that it has come to no resolution on the bill, then on the next 

        legislative day the House shall, immediately after the third 

        daily order of business under clause 1 of Rule XIV of the Rules 

        of the House of Representatives, resolve into the Committee of

        the procedure relating to any such legislation shall be decided 

        without debate.

          (4) Except to the extent specifically provided in the 

        preceding provisions of this subsection, consideration of any 

        such legislation and amendments thereto (or any conference 

        report thereon) shall be governed by the Rules of the House of 

        Representatives applicable to other bills and resolutions,
