     in paragraph (1) has not reported such joint resolution (or 
     an identical joint resolution) at the end of 20 calendar days 
     after the submission date, such committee may be discharged

     resolution shall occur.

       (6) Inapplicability of certain provisions.--In the Senate, 
     the procedures specified in paragraph (4) or (5) shall not 
     apply to the consideration of a joint resolution respecting a 
     request--

     with the applicable submission date; or
       (B) if the request submitted under subsection (e) was

     before the passage by one House of a joint resolution of that 
     House described in paragraph (1), that House receives from 
     the other House a joint resolution described in paragraph 
     (1), then the following procedures shall apply:
       (A) The joint resolution of the other House shall not be 
     referred to a committee.
       (B) With respect to a joint resolution described in 
     paragraph (1) of the House receiving the joint resolution--
       (i) the procedure in that House shall be the same as if no 
     joint resolution had been received from the other House; but
       (ii) the vote on final passage shall be on the joint 
     resolution of the other House.
       (g) Report on Unsecured Weapons in Libya.--Not later than 
     90 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, the 
     President shall submit a report to Congress examining the 
     extent to which advanced weaponry remaining unsecured after 
     the fall of Moammar Qaddafi was used by the individuals 
     responsible for the September 11, 2012, attack on the United 
     States consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
