                        submitted the following

                              R E P O R T

                       [To accompany H. Res. 849]

    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 849, by a record vote of 8 to 4, 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. 5665, the 
Combating International Islamophobia Act, under a closed rule. 
The resolution provides one hour of debate equally divided and 
controlled by the chair and ranking minority member of the 
Committee on Foreign Affairs or their designees. 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 117-
23, modified by the amendment printed in 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. The resolution 
provides one motion to recommit.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
the bill includes waivers of the following:
    --Clause 4 of rule XIII, which prohibits the consideration 
of a measure or matter reported by a committee until the 
proposed text of the report has been available for 72 hours.
    --Clause 3(d) of rule XIII, which requires the inclusion of 
committee cost estimate in a committee report. A CBO cost 
estimate on H.R. 5665 was not available at the time the 
Committee on Foreign Affairs filed its report.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
provisions in the bill, as amended, the Committee is not aware 
of any points of order. The waiver is prophylactic in nature.
