                       [To accompany H. Res. 88]

    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 88, by a non-record 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 H.R. 1, the 
``American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.'' The 
resolution provides 3.5 hours of general debate equally divided 
and controlled by the chairman and ranking minority member of 
the Committee on Appropriations, who may yield control of 
blocks of that time.
    The resolution waives all points of order against 
consideration of the bill except those arising under clause 9 
or 10 of rule XXI. Finally, the resolution provides that the 
Committee of the Whole shall rise without motion after general 
debate and that no further consideration of the bill shall 
occur except pursuant to a subsequent order of the House.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
the bill (except those arising under clause 9 or 10 of rule 
XXI) includes a waiver of section 303 of the Congressional 
Budget Act (prohibiting consideration of legislation creating 
new budget authority before the concurrent resolution on the 
budget has been agreed to).
