For the purposes of this resolution, the exemption from these deadlines provided for the House Ways and Means Committee in Joint Rule 2.03 does not apply to bills referred by the chair of the Ways and Means Committee to a division of that committee, that remain in a division, with the exception of a major appropriation and finance bill.

 

Any bills acted on by a division of the House or recalled from a division of the House or acted on by a Senate Committee other than those exempted in Joint Rule 2.03 after the second deadline must be referred to the House Committee on Rules and Legislative Administration or the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration for disposition.

 

Either the House Committee on Rules and Legislative Administration or the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration, when reporting a bill referred to the committee in accordance with Joint Rule 2.03 and this resolution, may waive the application of the rule and resolution to subsequent actions on that bill by other committees.
