BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. CARTER. Mr. Chairman, I must insist upon my point of order.

The Acting CHAIR. The gentleman will state his point of order.

Mr. CARTER. I make a point of order against the amendment because it provides an appropriation for an unauthorized program and therefore violates clause 2 of rule XXI. Clause 2 of rule XXI states in pertinent part:

``An appropriation ..... may not be in order as an amendment ..... , for an expenditure not previously authorized by law ..... ''

Mr. Chairman, the amendment proposes to appropriate funds for a program that is not authorized by law. The amendment therefore violates clause 2 of rule XXI.

I ask for a ruling of the Chair.
