the purpose of amendment and shall be considered as read. The 
rule waives all points of order against the committee amendment 
in the nature of a substitute.
    The rule makes in order only those amendments to the 
committee amendment that are pre-printed in the Congressional 
Record or are pro forma amendments for the purpose of debate. 
The rule provides that each amendment printed in the 
Congressional Record may be offered only by the Member who 
caused it to be printed or a designee, and that each amendment 
shall be considered as read. Finally, the rule provides one 
motion to recommit with or without instructions.
