items defined to be aircraft, ships, missiles, or combat vehicles, not

              [Economic Support Fund Assistance for Israel]

    [Sec. 517. The Congress finds that progress on the peace process in 
the Middle East is vitally important to United States security interests 
in the region. The Congress recognizes that, in fulfilling its 
obligations under the Treaty of Peace Between the Arab Republic of Egypt 
and the State of Israel, done at Washington on March 26, 1979, Israel 
incurred severe economic burdens. Furthermore, the Congress recognizes 
that an economically and militarily secure Israel serves the security 
interests of the United States, for a secure Israel is an Israel which 
has the incentive and confidence to continue pursuing the peace process. 
Therefore, the Congress declares that, subject to the availability of 
appropriations, it is the policy and the intention of the United States 
that the funds provided in annual appropriations for the Economic 
Support Fund which are allocated to Israel shall not be less than the 
annual debt repayment (interest and principal) from Israel to the United 
States Government in recognition that such a principle serves United 
States interests in the region.]

of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, as amended, may be used to pay 
for the performance of abortions as a method of family planning or to 
motivate or coerce any person to practice abortions. None of the funds 
made available to carry out part I of the Foreign Assistance Act of 
1961, as amended, may be used to pay for the performance of involuntary 
sterilization as a method of family planning or to coerce or provide any 
financial incentive to any person to undergo sterilizations. None of the 
funds made available to carry out part I of the Foreign Assistance Act 
of 1961, as amended, may be used to pay for any biomedical research 
which relates in whole or in part, to methods of, or the performance of, 
abortions or involuntary sterilization as a means of family planning. 
None of the funds made available to carry out part I of the Foreign

Provided, That none of the funds made available under this Act may be 
used to lobby for or against abortion.

    [(d) Not later than February 1, 1997, the President shall submit a 
finding to the Congress regarding the impact of the limitation on 
obligations imposed by subsection (a) of this section on the proper 
functioning of the population planning program. If such Presidential 
finding indicates that the limitation is having a negative impact on the 
proper functioning of the population planning program, funds for 
population planning activities and other population assistance referred 
to in subsection (a) may be made available beginning March 1, 1997, 
notwithstanding the July 1, 1997, limitation set forth in subsection 
(a), if the Congress approves such finding by adoption of a joint

        applicable only with respect to the procedure to be followed in 
        that House in the case of resolutions described by paragraph (2)

        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 such 
        House.
         (2) For purposes of this section, the term ``resolution'' means 
    a joint resolution, the text of which is as follows: ``That the 
    House of Representatives and Senate approve the Presidential 
    finding, submitted to the Congress on XXXXX, that the limitation on 
    obligations imposed by section 518A(a) of the Foreign Operations, 
    Export Financing, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 1997, is 
    having a negative impact on the proper functioning of the population 
    planning program.''. The blank space therein shall be filled with 
    the date on which the President submits his finding to the House of 
    Representatives and the Senate.

    President submits such finding, the resolution shall be introduced 
    in that House, as provided in the preceding sentence, on the first 
    day thereafter on which that House is in session. A resolution once 
    introduced in the House with respect to a Presidential finding under

    suspend the application of this subsection by unanimous consent.
         (5)(A) If any committee to which a resolution with respect to a 
    Presidential finding under this section has been referred has not 
    reported it at the end of 5 calendar days after its introduction, 
    such committee shall be automatically discharged from further 
    consideration of the resolution and it shall be placed on the 
    appropriate calendar. A vote on final passage of the resolution, 
    shall be taken in each House on or before February 28, 1997. If 
    prior to the passage by 1 House of a resolution of that House under 
    this section, that House receives the same resolution from the other 
    House, then--
             (i) the procedure in that House shall be the same as if no 
        resolution had been received from the other House, but
             (ii) the vote on final passage shall be on the resolution 
        of the other House.
         (6)(A) A motion in the House of Representatives to proceed to 
    the consideration of a resolution under this section shall be highly 
    privileged and not debatable. An amendment to the motion shall not

    which such resolution was agreed to or disagreed to.
         (C) Appeals from the decision of the Chair relating to the 
    application of the rules of the House of Representatives to the 
    procedures relating to a resolution under this section shall be 
    decided without debate.
         (D) Except to the extent specifically provided in preceding 
    provisions of this subsection, consideration in the House of 
    Representatives of a resolution under this subsection shall be 
    governed by the rules of the House of Representatives applicable to 
    other resolutions in similar circumstances.
         (7)(A) A motion in the Senate to proceed to the consideration 
    of a resolution under this section shall not debatable. It shall not 
    be in order to move to reconsider the vote by which the motion is 
    agreed to or disagreed to.

    or appeal, the time in opposition thereto shall be controlled by the 
    minority leader or his designee. Such leaders, or either of them,

    allot additional time to any Senator during the consideration of any 
    debatable motion or appeal.
         (C) A motion in the Senate to further limit debate is not 
    debatable. A motion to recommit a resolution is not in order.]
