 Mr. Diaz-Balart, from the Committee on Rules, submitted the following

                              R E P O R T

                       [To accompany H. Res. 408]

    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 408, by a nonrecord vote, report the same to 
the House with the recommendation that the resolution be 

                summary of provisions of the resolution

    The resolution provides for the consideration of H.R. 1838, 
the Taiwan Security Enhancement Act, under a modified closed 
rule. The rule provides one hour of debate in the House divided 
equally between the chairman and ranking minority member of the 
Committee on International Relations.
    The rule waives all points of order against consideration 
of the bill. The rule provides that the bill shall be 
considered as read for amendment. The rule further provides 
that the amendment recommended by the Committee on 
International Relations now printed in the bill shall be 
considered as adopted. The rule provides for consideration of 
the amendment printed in the Congressional Record, if offered 
by the Minority Leader or a designee, which shall be considered 
as read and shall be separately debatable for one hour equally 
divided and controlled by the proponent and an opponent.
    Finally, the rule provides one motion to recommit with or 
without instructions.
    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
the bill includes a waiver of clause 3 of Rule XIII (requiring 
the inclusion in the report of a CBO cost estimate) because the 
report accompanying the bill (H. Rept. 106-423, Part 1) did not 
include that cost estimate.
