Resolved, That at any time after the adoption of this resolution the Speaker

Committee of the Whole House on the state of the Union for consideration of the
joint resolution (H.J. Res. 2) proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the
United States with respect to the number of terms of office of Members of the
Senate and the House of Representatives. The first reading of the joint
resolution shall be dispensed with. General debate shall be confined to the
joint resolution and shall not exceed two hours equally divided and controlled
by the chairman and ranking minority member of the Committee on the Judiciary.
After general debate the joint resolution shall be considered for amendment
under the five-minute rule. The joint resolution shall be considered as read. No
amendment shall be in order except those specified in the report of the
Committee on Rules accompanying this resolution. Each amendment may be offered
only in the order specified in the report, may be offered only by a Member
designated in the report, may be considered notwithstanding the adoption of a
previous amendment in the nature of a substitute, shall be considered as read,
shall be debatable for the time specified in the report of the Committee on
Rules equally divided and controlled by the proponent and an opponent, and shall
not be subject to amendment. If more than one amendment is adopted, then only
the one receiving the greater number of affirmative votes shall be considered as
finally adopted. In the case of a tie for the greater number of affirmative
votes, then only the last amendment to receive that number of affirmative votes
shall be considered as finally adopted. The Chairman of the Committee of the
Whole may: (1) postpone until a time during further consideration in the
Committee of the Whole a request for a recorded vote on any amendment; and (2)
reduce to five minutes the minimum time for electronic voting on any postponed
question that follows another electronic vote without intervening business,
provided that the minimum time for electronic voting on the first in any series
of question shall be fifteen minutes. At the conclusion of consideration of the
joint resolution for amendment the Committee shall rise and report the joint
resolution to the House with such amendment as may have been finally adopted.
The previous question shall be considered as ordered on the joint resolution and
any amendment thereto to final passage without intervening motion except one
motion to recommit with or without instructions.
