                              R E P O R T

                       [To accompany H. Res. 182]

    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 182, by a nonrecord vote, report the same to 
the House with the recommendation that the resolution be 
adopted.

                  SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS OF RESOLUTION

    The resolution provides for the consideration of a 
concurrent resolution of either House providing for the 
adjournment of the two Houses during the Independence Day 
district work period. The rule waives all points of order 
against the consideration of the resolution.
    Section 2 of the rule provides that H. Res. 179 is laid on 
the table.
    While adjournment resolutions are ordinarily privileged, a 
point of order could be raised against the July 4th district 
work period resolution on the grounds that it violates section 
309 of the Budget Act, which requires that the House cannot 
adjourn for more than three calendar days in July if it has not 
completed action on all appropriations bills.
