    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 103, by a nonrecord vote, report the same to 
the House with the recommendation that the resolution be 
adopted.

               brief summary of provisions of resolution

    The resolution provides for the consideration of House 
Concurrent Resolution 42, the ``Peacekeeping Operations in 
Kosovo Resolution'' under a modified open rule. The rule 
provides two hours of general debate divided equally between 
the chairman and ranking minority member of the Committee on 
International Relations.
    The rule provides that the concurrent resolution shall be 
considered as read. The rule makes in order only those 
amendments printed in the Congressional Record. 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. The rule allows the Chairman of the 
Committee of the Whole to postpone votes during consideration 
of the bill, and to reduce voting time to five minutes on a 
postponed question if the vote follows a fifteen minute vote. 
Finally, the rule provides for one motion to recommit with or 
without instructions.
