H.R. 2506 Appropriations Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2002

The Committee granted, by voice vote, a modified open rule providing one hour of general debate to be equally divided and controlled by the chairman and ranking minority member of the Committee on Appropriations. The rule waives points of order against consideration of the bill for failure to comply with clause 4 of rule XIII (requiring a three-day layover of the committee report and requiring the three-day availability of printed hearings on a general appropriations bill). The rule provides that the amendment printed in the report of the Committee on Rules accompanying the resolution shall be considered as adopted in the House and in the Committee of the Whole. The rule waives points of order against provisions in the bill as amended for failure to comply with clause 2 of rule XXI (prohibiting unauthorized or legislative provisions in a general appropriations bill or prohibiting reappropriations in a general appropriations bill), except as specified in the rule.

The rule makes in order only those amendments printed in the Congressional Record and pro forma amendments for the purpose of debate. The rule provides that each amendment printed in the Congressional Record may be offered only by the Member who caused it to be printed or his designee, and that each amendment shall be considered as read. Finally, the rule provides one motion to recommit with or without instructions.
