                              R E P O R T

                       [To accompany H. Res. 514]

    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 514, 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. 4576, 
the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2001, under an 
open rule. The rule provides one hour of general debate divided 
equally between the chairman and ranking minority member of the 
Committee on Appropriations.
    The rule waives all points of order against consideration 
of the bill. The rule also waives points of order against 
provisions in the bill for failure to comply with clause 2 of 
rule XXI (prohibiting unauthorized or legislative provisions in 
a general appropriations bill and prohibiting reappropriations 
in a general appropriations bill).
    The rule allows the Chairman of the Committee of the Whole 
to accord priority in recognition to Members who have 
preprinted their amendments in the Congressional Record. The 
rule also 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 one 
motion to recommit with or without instructions.
