                      consideration of the joint resolution, and all 
                      points of order against the joint resolution (and

                      or their designees. 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

                      if requested in accordance with the rules of the 
                      Senate.
                          (iv) Rulings of the chair on procedure.--

                      shall be the same as if no joint resolution had 
                      been received from the other House, except that 
                      the vote on passage shall be on the joint
