PUBLIC LAW 98-473—OCT. 12, 1984 not in order. A motion to reconsider the vote by which the resolution is agreed to or disagreed to is not in order. (D) Immediately following the conclusion of the debate on a resolution described in paragraph (1), and a single quorum call at the conclusion of the debate if requested in accordance with the rules of the appropriate House, the vote on final passage of the resolution shall occur. (E) Appeals from the decisions of the Chair relating to the application of the rules of the Senate or the House of Representatives, as the case may be, to the procedure relating to a resolution described in paragraph (1) shall be decided without debate. (5) If, before the passage by the Senate of a resolution of the Senate described in paragraph (1), the Senate receives from the House of Representatives a resolution described in paragraph (1), then the following procedures shall apply: (A) The resolution of the House of Representatives shall not be referred to a committee. (B) With respect to a resolution described in paragraph (1) of the Senate— (i) the procedure in the Senate shall be the same as if no resolution had been received from the House; but (ii) the vote on final passage shall be on the resolution of the House. (C) Upon disposition of the resolution received from the House, it shall no longer be in order to consider the resolution originated in the Senate. (6) If the Senate receives from the House of Representatives, a resolution described in paragraph (1) after the Senate has disposed of a Senate originated resolution, the action of the Senate with regard to the disposition of the Senate originated resolution shall be deemed to be the action of the Senate with regard to the House originated resolution. (7) This proviso is enacted by Congress— (A) as an exercise of the rulemaking power of the Senate and House of Representatives, respectively, and as such it is deemed a part of the rules of each House, respectively, but applicable only with respect to the procedure to be followed in that House in the case of a resolution described in paragraph (1), and it supersedes other rules only to the extent that it is inconsistent with such rules; and (B) with full recognition of the constitutional right of either House to change the rules (so far as relating to the procedure of that House) at any time, in the same manner and to the same extent as in the case of any other rule of that House. (8) Section 110(d)(1) of the Department of Defense Authorization Act, 1985, as approved by Congress on September 27, 1984, is amended by deleting the word "appropriated" and inserting in lieu thereof the word "available".
