House Resolution 52, 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.J. Res. 28, 
the Further Additional Continuing Appropriations Act, 2019, 
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 Appropriations or their 
designees. The resolution waives all points of order against 
consideration of the joint resolution. The resolution provides 
that the joint resolution shall be considered as read. The 
resolution waives all points of order against provisions in the 
joint resolution. The resolution provides one motion to 
recommit. The resolution provides that it shall be in order at 
any time through the legislative day of January 25, 2019, for 
the Speaker to entertain motions that the House suspend the 
rules and that the Speaker or her designee shall consult with 
the Minority Leader or his designee on the designation of any 
matter for consideration pursuant to this section.

                         EXPLANATION OF WAIVERS

    The waiver of all points of order against consideration of 
H.J. Res. 28 includes waivers of the following:
           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.
           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.
           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.
    Although the resolution waives all points of order against 
provisions in the joint resolution, the Committee is not aware 
of any points of order. The waiver is prophylactic in nature.
