shall state in detail the reasons for the difference.

  (2) On the day on which the President decides that there is no

  (c)(1) During the 18-month period beginning on the date of the

          (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

Congress that--

          (A) he has determined that such waiver will substantially 

        promote the objectives of this section; and

  (3) A waiver with respect to any country shall terminate on the day

  (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;

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

        Representatives and the Senate setting forth his reasons for 

        recommending the extension of such authority; and

          (C) include, for each country with respect to which a waiver 

        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 

        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 


[[Page 1167]]

        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.


                                                          Sec. 1130(11C)


    c. nondiscriminatory treatment, Sec. 407 of the trade act of 1974


                            [19 U.S.C. 2437]

  Sec. 407. procedure for congressional approval or disapproval of 
extension of nondiscriminatory treatment and presidential reports.--(a) 
Whenever the President issues a proclamation under section 404 extending 
nondiscriminatory treatment to the products of any foreign country, he 
shall promptly transmit to the House of Representatives and to the 
Senate a document setting forth the proclamation and the agreement the 
proclamation proposes to implement, together with his reasons therefor.

  (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 
country. On or before December 31 of each year, the President shall 
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.


[[Page 1168]]

  (c)(1) In the case of a document referred to in subsection (a), the 
proclamation set forth in the document may become effective and the 
agreement set forth in the document may enter into force and effect only 
if a joint resolution 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.

        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 

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

  (b) definitions.--For purposes of this section--

          (1) The term ``implementing bill'' means only a bill of either 

        House of Congress which is introduced as provided in subsection

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.

  (2) On the day on which a bilateral commercial agreement, entered into 
under title IV of this Act after the date of the enactment of this Act, 
is transmitted to the House of Representatives and the Senate, an

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

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

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

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 
committees 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

  (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

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.


[[Page 1173]]

in order, nor shall it be in order to move to reconsider the vote by 
which the motion is agreed to or disagreed to.
  (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

  (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 1174]]

  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, 17813). 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). For other special 
orders altering procedures under the Trade Act of 1974, see, e.g., July 
27, 2005, p. 17978; Apr. 10, 2008, p. 5640. 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 appeal) (Nov. 19, 
1993, p. 30641).


                  resolutions of disapproval, Sec. 152

        space being filled with the appropriate date; and

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

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 1175]]

        the House his intention to do so; and

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

        resolution with respect to the same matter.

  (2) A motion to discharge under paragraph (1) may be made only by an 
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 
divided in the Senate equally between, and controlled by, the majority 
leader and the minority leader or their designees. An amendment to the

  (e) floor consideration in the senate.--(1) A motion in the Senate to 
proceed to the consideration of a resolution shall be privileged. 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

  (2) Debate in the Senate on a resolution, and all debatable motions 
and appeals in connection therewith, shall be limited to not more than

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 1177]]

        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).

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.


[[Page 1179]]

  (c) consideration of second resolution not in order.--It shall not be 
in order in either the House of Representatives or the Senate to

resolution with respect to the same recommendation.

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

and controlled by, the majority leader and the minority leader or their 
designees. Debate on any debatable motion or appeal related to the 
conference report shall be limited to 1 hour, to be equally divided 
between, and controlled by, the mover and the manager of the conference

disagreement shall be received unless it is a germane amendment.

                reported in that House of Congress by the Committee on 

                Ways and Means or the Committee on Finance, as the case
