Sec. 1101. Former rules on employment practices
and application of certain laws.
The earliest form of the rule on ``employment
practices'' was designated as rule LI. It grew out of the Fair
Employment Practices Resolution first adopted in the 100th Congress (H.
Res. 558, Oct. 3, 1988, p. 27840) and renewed in the 101st Congress (H.
Res. 15, Jan. 3, 1989, p. 85). The terms of that resolution were
incorporated by reference in a standing rule LI in the 102d Congress (H.
Res. 5, Jan. 3, 1991, p. 39), and were codified in full text, with
certain amendments, in the 103d Congress (H. Res. 5, Jan. 5, 1993, p.
49). The Employment Practices rule was overtaken by the earliest form of
``application of certain laws,'' which was originally designated as LII
in the 103d Congress (H. Res. 578, Oct. 7, 1994, p. 29326). The
Application of Laws rule, in turn, was overtaken by the Congressional
Accountability Act of 1995 (P.L. 104-1; 2 U.S.C. 1301). Certain savings
provisions appear in section 506 of that Act (2 U.S.C. 1435). A later
form of the rule designated as LII (gift rule) was adopted in the 104th
Congress (H. Res. 250, Nov. 16, 1995, p. 33433). In the 105th Congress
the Gift Rule was redesignated as rule LI (H. Res. 5, Jan. 7, 1997, p.
