be adopted.

                SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS OF THE RESOLUTION

    The resolution provides for consideration of H.R. 1, the 
For the People Act of 2019, under a structured rule. The 
resolution provides two hours of general debate equally divided 
and controlled by the chair and ranking minority member of the 
Committee on House Administration. The resolution waives all 
points of order against consideration of the bill. The 
resolution provides that an amendment in the nature of a 
substitute consisting of the text of Rules Committee Print 116-
7, modified by the amendment printed in Part A of this report, 
shall be considered as adopted and the bill, as amended, shall 
be considered as read. The resolution waives all points of 
order against provisions in the bill, as amended. Section 2 of 
the resolution makes in order only those further amendments 
printed in part B of this report and amendments en bloc 
described in section 3 of the resolution. The resolution 
provides that the amendments printed in part B of this report 
may be offered only in the order printed in this report, may be 
offered only by a Member designated in this report, shall be 
considered as read, shall be debatable for the time specified 
in this report equally divided and controlled by the proponent 
and an opponent, shall not be subject to amendment, and shall 
not be subject to a demand for division of the question in the 
House or in the Committee of the Whole. The resolution waives 
all points of order against the amendments printed in part B of 
this report or amendments en bloc as described in section 3 of 
the resolution. Section 3 of the resolution provides that it 
shall be in order at any time for the chair of the Committee on 
House Administration or her designee to offer amendments en 
bloc consisting of amendments printed in part B of this report 
not earlier disposed of. Amendments en bloc shall be considered 
as read, shall be debatable for 20 minutes equally divided and 
controlled by the chair and ranking minority member of the 
Committee on House Administration or their designees, shall not 
be subject to amendment, and shall not be subject to a demand 
for division of the question in the House or in the Committee 
of the Whole. Section 4 of the resolution provides, after the 
conclusion of consideration of the bill for amendment, a final 
period of general debate, which shall not exceed 10 minutes 
equally divided and controlled by the chair and ranking 
minority member of the Committee on House Administration. The 
resolution provides one motion to recommit with or without 
instructions. The resolution provides that it shall be in order 
at any time through the legislative day of March 8, 2019, for 
the Speaker to entertain motions that the House suspend the 
rules and that the Speaker or her designee shall consult with 
the Minority Leader or his designee on the designation of any 
matter for consideration pursuant to this section.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
H.R. 1 includes waivers of the following:
           Clause 12(a)(1) of rule XXI, which prohibits 
        consideration of a bill unless there is a searchable 
        electronic comparative print that shows how the bill 
        proposes to change current law.
           Clause 12(b) of rule XXI, which prohibits 
        consideration of a bill unless there is a searchable 
        electronic comparative print that shows how the text of 
        the bill as proposed to be considered differs from the 
        text of the bill as reported.
    The waiver of all points of order against provisions in the 
bill, as amended, includes waivers of the following:
           Clause 4 of rule XXI, which prohibits 
        reporting a bill carrying an appropriation from a 
        committee not having jurisdiction to report an 
        appropriation.
           Clause 5(a)(1) of rule XXI, which prohibits 
        a bill carrying a tax or tariff measure from being 
        reported by a committee not having jurisdiction to 
        report tax or tariff measures.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
the amendments printed in part B of this report or against 
amendments en bloc described in section 3 of the resolution, 
the Committee is not aware of any points of order. The waiver 
is prophylactic in nature.

        our democratic society: ``Congress shall make no law .

        American people can freely speak about their political 
        beliefs.
          (3) The Federal government should not concern itself 
        with the political ideology or affiliation of any of 
        its citizens, when applying the law, offering services, 
        or evaluating applications for federal benefits or 
        awards.
          (4) The protection of free speech is broad and covers 
        expressive and political speech.
          (5) Political speech, including the financial 
        contributions to political or issue advocacy campaigns, 
        is a vital part of our Nation's free exchange of ideas 
        and avenues of free expression must be preserved and
