    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 326, by a nonrecord vote, report the same to 
the House with the recommendation that the resolution be 
adopted.

                  summary of provisions of resolution

    The resolution waives all points of order against the 
conference report to accompany H.R. 2561, the Department of 
Defense Appropriations Bill, 2000, and against its 
consideration. The rule further provides that the conference 
report shall be considered as read.
    The waiver of all points of order includes a waiver of 
clause 8 of rule XXII (requiring a three-day layover of a 
conference report) because the conference report was not made 
available until Tuesday, October 12, and may be considered as 
early as Wednesday, October 13. Also, the waiver of all points 
of order includes a waiver of clause 9 of rule XXII 
(prohibiting matters not specifically committed to the 
conference from being included in the conference report).
