                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
H.R. 3798 includes a waiver of the following:
           Clause 10 of rule XXI, which prohibits the 
        consideration of a bill if it has the net effect of 
        increasing mandatory spending over the five-year or 
        ten-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) 
        allocation of such authority; and
           Section 311 of the Congressional Budget Act, 
        which prohibits consideration of legislation that 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.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
provisions in H.R. 3798, as amended, the Committee is not aware 
of any points of order. The waiver is prophylactic in nature.
    The waiver of all points of order against the conference 
report and its consideration includes a waiver of the 
following:
           Section 306 of the Congressional 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; and
           Clause 9 of rule XXII, which prohibits the 
        inclusion of matter in a conference report not 
        committed to the conference by either House.
