H.R. 581      Resources                                                              The Wildland Fire Management Act

The Committee granted, by voice vote, an open rule providing one hour of general debate equally divided and controlled by the chairman and ranking minority member of the Committee on Resources. The rule waives section 311 of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974 (prohibiting consideration of legislation or an amendment that would cause the total level of new budget authority or outlays in the most recent budget resolution to be exceeded, or would cause revenues to be less) against consideration of the bill. The rule provides that the bill shall be open for amendment at any point. The rule waives all points of order against the bill. The rule authorizes the Chair to accord priority in recognition to Members who have preprinted their amendments in the Congressional Record. Finally, the rule provides one motion to recommit, with or without instructions.
