    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration

                SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS OF THE RESOLUTION

    The resolution provides for consideration of H.R. 2, the 
``Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act,'' under a 
closed rule. The resolution waives all points of order against 
consideration of H.R. 2. The resolution provides that the 
amendment to H.R. 2 printed in part A of this report shall be 
considered as adopted. H.R. 2, as amended, shall be considered 
as read. The resolution waives all points of order against 
provisions of H.R. 2, as amended. The resolution provides seven 
hours of debate on H.R. 2 in the House with 30 minutes equally 
divided and controlled by the Majority Leader and Minority 
Leader or their respective designees, 90 minutes equally 
divided and controlled by the chair and ranking minority member 
of the Committee on Education and the Workforce, 90 minutes

    The resolution provides a structured rule for consideration 
of H. Res. 9, instructing certain committees to report

The resolution provides 1 hour of debate on H. Res. 9 equally 
divided and controlled by the chair and ranking minority member 
of the Committee on Rules, or their designees. The resolution 
makes in order the amendment to H. Res. 9 printed in part B of 
this report, if offered by Representative Matheson of Utah, or 
his designee, which shall be considered as read and shall be 
debatable for 10 minutes equally divided and controlled by the 
proponent and an opponent. All points of order are waived 
against the amendment printed in part B of the report. The 
resolution provides one motion to recommit H. Res. 9 without 
instructions.
    The resolution provides for consideration of a resolution 
if offered by the Majority Leader or his designee, relating to 
the status of certain actions taken by Members-elect, under a 
closed rule. The resolution provides 4 minutes of debate on the 
resolution equally divided and controlled by the Majority 
Leader and Minority Leader, or their designees.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    With respect to H.R. 2, the rule waives section 303(a) of 
the Congressional Budget Act, which prohibits the consideration 
of legislation providing new budget authority, change in 
revenues, change in public debt, new entitlement authority, or 
new credit authority for a fiscal year until the budget 
resolution for that fiscal year has been agreed to. The waiver 
is necessary because a budget resolution was never adopted for 
fiscal year 2011, and the Chairman of the Committee on the 
Budget has yet to submit in the Congressional Record budgetary 
aggregates and allocations for fiscal year 2011 pursuant to 
section 3(b)(1) of H. Res. 5.
    Although the rule waives all points of order against 
consideration of H. Res. 9, the committee is not aware of any 
waivers. The waiver of all points of order is prophylactic in 
nature.
    Although the rule waives all points of order against the 
consideration of the resolution contemplated in section 3 of 
the resolution, the committee does not anticipate the need for 
any waivers. The waiver of all points of order is prophylactic 
in nature.
