    The Committee on Rules, having had under consideration 
House Resolution 28, by a record vote of 9 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. 264, the 
Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act, 
2019; H.R. 265, the Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and 
Drug Administration, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 
2019; H.R. 266, the Department of the Interior, Environment, 
and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2019; and H.R. 267, 
the Department of Transportation, Housing and Urban 
Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2019; 
each under a closed rule. The resolution provides one hour of 
debate on each bill equally divided and controlled by the chair 
and ranking minority member of the Committee on Appropriations 
or their respective designees. The resolution waives all points 
of order against consideration of each bill. The resolution 
provides that each bill shall be considered as read. The 
resolution waives all points of order against provisions in 
each bill. The resolution provides each bill one motion to 
recommit.
    The resolution waives the requirement of clause 6(a) of 
rule XIII for a two-thirds vote to consider a report from the 
Committee on Rules on the same day it is presented to the House 
with respect to any resolution reported through the legislative 
day of January 15, 2019, relating to a measure making or 
continuing appropriations for the fiscal year ending September 
30, 2019.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
H.R. 264, H.R. 265, H.R. 266, and H.R. 267 includes waivers of 
the following for each bill:
           Clause 11 of rule XXI, prohibiting the 
        consideration of a bill or joint resolution which has 
        not been reported by a committee until such measure has 
        been available to Members, Delegates, and the Resident 
        Commissioner for 72 hours. While the text of each bill 
        was made publicly available in searchable form at 9:00 
        am on January 6, 2019, the waiver of clause 11 of rule 
        XXI is necessary because the bills could not be 
        formally introduced until the House convened for 
        business on January 8, 2019.
           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.
    The waiver of all points of order against consideration 
additionally includes a waiver of the following for both H.R. 
264 and H.R. 266:
           Section 302(f)(1) of the Congressional 
        Budget Act, which prohibits consideration of 
        legislation providing new budget authority in excess of 
        a 302(b) allocation of such authority.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
provisions in H.R. 264, H.R. 265, H.R. 266, and H.R. 267, the 
Committee is not aware of any points of order. The waiver is 
prophylactic in nature.
