            The rule makes in order the amendment in the nature of a substitute printed in part C of the report if offered by Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin or his designee.  The amendment in the nature of a substitute shall be considered as read and shall be separately debatable for one hour equally divided and controlled by the proponent and an opponent.  The rule waives all points of order against the amendment in the nature of a substitute printed in part C of the report except those arising under clause 9 or 10 of rule XXI.
