The rule provides one hour of general debate divided equally between the chairman and ranking minority member of the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. The rule makes in order the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure amendment in the nature of a substitute, now printed in the bill, as an original bill for the purpose of amendment. The rule also waives clause 7 of rule XVI (prohibiting nongermane amendments) against the committee amendment in the nature of a substitute. The rule further provides that the amendment in the nature of a substitute shall be open for amendment by section. Members who have preprinted their amendments in the Congressional Record prior to their consideration will be given priority in recognition to offer their amendments if otherwise consistent with House rules. 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. The waiver of clause 7 of rule XVI (prohibiting nongermane amendments) against the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure amendment in the nature of substitute is necessary because the substitute adds Otsego Lake in New York, Oneida Lake in New York, Raystown Lake in Pennsylvania, and Swan Lake in Itasca County, Minnesota to the Clean Lakes Program and these lakes were not included in the original bill.
