                              R E P O R T

                       [To accompany H. Res. 829]

    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 829, by a nonrecord vote, report the same to 
the House with the recommendation that the resolution be 
adopted.

                SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS OF THE RESOLUTION

    The resolution provides for consideration of the conference 
report to accompany H.R. 2892, the Department of Homeland 
Security Appropriations Act, 2010. The resolution waives all 
points of order against the conference report and against its 
consideration. The resolution provides that the conference 
report shall be considered as read. Finally, the resolution 
provides that the previous question shall be considered as 
ordered without intervention of any motion except one hour of 
debate and one motion to recommit if applicable.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against the conference 
report and against its consideration includes a waiver of 
clause 8 of rule XXII (requiring a three-day layover of 
conference reports and the accompanying joint explanatory 
statement), a waiver of section 302(f) of the Congressional 
Budget Act (regarding consideration of legislation providing 
new budget authority in excess of a subcommittee's 302(b) 
allocation of such authority), and a waiver of section 306 of 
the Congressional Budget Act (regarding consideration of 
legislation within the jurisdiction of the Budget Committee). 
Although the rule waives all points of order against the 
conference report and against its consideration, the conference 
report does not violate clauses 9 or 10 of rule XXI.
