considered as adopted and the bill, as amended, shall be considered as 
read. The rule waives all points of order against provisions in the 
bill, as amended. The rule provides one motion to recommit with or 
without instructions. In section 2, the rule provides that on any 
legislative day during the period from May 5, 2017, through May 15, 
2017: the Journal of the proceedings of the previous day shall be 
considered as approved; and the Chair may at any time declare the House 
adjourned to meet at a date and time to be announced by the Chair in 
declaring the adjournment. In section 3, the rule provides that the 
Speaker may appoint Members to perform the duties of the Chair for the

designation of any matter for consideration pursuant to this section. 
Finally, in section 5, the rule waives clause 6(a) of rule XIII
