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 clause 9 of rule XXII (precluding 
conferees from including matter outside the scope of 
conference); and a waiver of section 302(f) of the
