SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS OF RESOLUTION The resolution provides for the consideration of the Conference Report to Accompany H.R. 800, the Education Flexibility Partnership Act of 1999. The rule waives points of order against the conference report and against its consideration. The rule further provides that the conference report shall be considered as read. The waiver of all points of order includes a waiver of clause 8 of rule XXII (requiring a three-day layover of a conference report) because the conference report was not filed until Tuesday, April 20, but will be considered on the floor on Wednesday, April 21. Also, the waiver of all points of order includes a waiver of clause 9 of rule XXII (prohibiting matters not specifically committed to the conference from being included in the conference report). The conference committee adopted an amendment by Senator Jeffords to exempt rural school districts from the Department of Education's consortia program. This amendment was not within the scope of the conference, but it was adopted by the conference by voice vote.
