ranking minority member of the Committee on Appropriations. The 
resolution waives all points of order against consideration of 
each bill. The resolution waives points of order against 
provisions in each bill for failure to comply with clause 2 of

amendments in the Congressional Record. Finally, the resolution 
provides one motion to recommit each bill with or without 
instructions.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
consideration of H.R. 5743, the Committee is not aware of any 
points of order. The waiver is prophylactic in nature.
    The waiver of all points of order against the amendment in 
the nature of a substitute to H.R. 5743, recommended by the 
Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and made in order as 
original text, includes the following:
      A waiver of clause 4 of rule XXI, which prohibits 
a bill or joint resolution carrying an appropriation from being 
reported by a committee not having jurisdiction to report 
appropriations. Sections 401 and 403 of the bill as reported by 
the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence fall within the 
jurisdiction of the Committee on Appropriations. However, the 
Manager's amendment, if adopted, would strike the offending 
provisions.
      A waiver of clause 7 of rule XVI because the bill 
as ordered reported by the Permanent Select Committee on 
Intelligence includes provisions that are not germane to the 
bill as introduced.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
the amendments to H.R. 5742 printed in this report, the 
Committee is not aware of any points of order. The waiver is 
prophylactic in nature.
    It is important to note that the estimate for H.R. 5743 
provided by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) to the 
Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the Committee on 
the Budget is incomplete due to the fact that CBO is only 
permitted to score the unclassified portions of the bill. 
Because the estimate is incomplete, the Chairman of the 
Committee on the Budget is unable to accurately advise the 
Chair on budget related points of order.
    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
the three Appropriations measures includes the following:
      A waiver of clause 4(c) of rule XIII, against 
H.R. 5854, H.R. 5855, and H.R. 5325, which prohibits 
consideration of a general appropriations bill reported by the 
Committee on Appropriations in the House until the third 
calendar day on which printed hearings of the Committee on 
Appropriations thereon have been available to Members.
      A waiver of section 306 of the Congressional 
Budget Act, against H.R. 5854 and H.R. 5855, which prohibits 
consideration of legislation within the jurisdiction of the 
Committee on the Budget unless referred to or reported by the 
Budget Committee.
    The resolution includes a waiver of points of order against 
provisions in the three Appropriations measures for failure to 
comply with clause 2 of rule XXI, which prohibits unauthorized 
appropriations or legislative provisions in an appropriations 
bill. This waiver is necessary because the bill contains 
unauthorized appropriations and legislative provisions.
