    HOLT. ``No Senator or Representative shall, during the time for which he was elected, be appointed to any civil office under the authority of the United States which shall have been created or the emoluments whereof shall have been increased during such time; and no person holding any office under the United States shall be a Member of either House during his continuance in office.'' Mr. GOODLATTE. I now yield to the gentlewoman from North Carolina (Ms. Foxx).

    Ms. FOXX. Article I, section 7: ``All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with amendments as on other bills.

    ``Every bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate shall, before it become a law, be presented to the President of the United States. If he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to reconsider it.'' Mr. GOODLATTE. I now yield to the gentleman from Texas (Mr. Conaway).
