The Committee granted, by voice vote, a rule providing for consideration of the Senate amendments to H.R. 1586, the "Aviation Safety and Investment Act of 2010”.  The rule makes in order a single motion by the chair of the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure that the House concur in the Senate amendment to the title and that the House concur in the Senate amendment to the text with the amendment printed in the report of the Committee on Rules.  The previous question shall be considered as ordered without intervening motion or demand for division of the question.  The rule provides one hour of debate on the motion equally divided and controlled by the chair and ranking minority member of the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure.  The rule waives all points of order against consideration of the motion except those arising under clause 10 of rule XXI.  The rule provides that the Senate amendments and the motion shall be considered as read.
