                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
H.R. 3877 includes waivers of the following:
     Section 103(i) of H. Res. 6, which prohibits 
consideration of an unreported bill pursuant to a rule.
     Clause 11 of rule XXI, which prohibits 
consideration of a bill which has not been reported by a 
committee until such measure has been available to Members, 
Delegates, and the Resident Commissioner for 72 hours.
     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.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
provisions in H.R. 3877, the Committee is not aware of any 
points of order. The waiver is prophylactic in nature.
    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
H.R. 549 includes waivers of the following:
     Clause 4 of rule XIII, which prohibits 
consideration of a reported bill which has not been available 
to Members, Delegates, and the Resident Commissioner for 72 
hours.
     Section 306 of the Budget Act, which prohibits 
consideration of legislation within the jurisdiction of the 
Committee on the Budget unless referred to or reported by the 
Budget Committee.
     Clause 10 of rule XXI, which prohibits 
consideration of a measure that has a net effect of increasing 
the deficit or reducing the surplus over the five- or 10-year 
period.
     Section 302(f) of the Congressional Budget Act, 
which prohibits consideration of legislation providing new 
budget authority in excess of a 302(a) or 302(b) allocation of 
such authority.
     Section 311 of the Congressional Budget Act, which 
prohibits consideration of legislation that would cause the 
level of total new budget authority for the first fiscal year 
to be exceeded, or would cause revenues to be less than the 
level of total revenues for the first fiscal year or for the 
total of that first fiscal year and the ensuing fiscal years 
for which allocations are provided, except when a declaration 
of war by the Congress is in effect.
    The waiver of all points of order against provisions in 
H.R. 549 includes a waiver of clause 5(a) 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.
