              TITLE II--BUDGET ENFORCEMENT AND RULEMAKING

                     Subtitle A--Budget Enforcement

SEC. 201. LOCK-BOX FOR SOCIAL SECURITY SURPLUSES.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
            (1) under the Budget Enforcement Act of 1990, the 
        social security trust funds are off-budget for purposes 
        of the President's budget submission and the concurrent 
        resolution on the budget;
            (2) the social security trust funds have been 
        running surpluses for 17 years;
            (3) these surpluses have been used to implicitly 
        finance the general operations of the Federal 
        Government;
            (4) in fiscal year 2001, the social security 
        surplus will be $166 billion;
            (5) this resolution balances the Federal budget 
        without counting the social security surpluses;
            (6) the only way to ensure that social security 
        surpluses are not diverted for other purposes is to 
        balance the budget exclusive of such surpluses; and
            (7) Congress and the President should take such 
        steps as are necessary to ensure that future budgets 
        are balanced excluding the surpluses generated by the 
        social security trust funds.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that 
legislation should be enacted in this session of Congress that 
would enforce the reduction in debt held by the public assumed 
in this resolution by the imposition of a statutory limit on 
such debt or other appropriate means.
    (c) Point of Order.--
            (1) In general.--It shall not be in order in the 
        House of Representatives or the Senate to consider any 
        revision to this resolution or a concurrent resolution 
        on the budget for fiscal year 2002, or any amendment 
        thereto or conference report thereon, that sets forth a 
        deficit for any fiscal year.
            (2) Deficit levels.--For purposes of this 
        subsection, a deficit shall be the level (if any) set 
        forth in the most recently agreed to concurrent 
        resolution on the budget for that fiscal year pursuant 
        to section 301(a)(3) of the Congressional Budget Act of 
        1974.
    (d) Exception.--Subsection (c)(1) shall not apply if--
            (1) the most recent of the Department of Commerce's 
        advance, preliminary, or final reports of actual real 
        economic growth indicate that the rate of real economic 
        growth for each of the most recently reported quarter 
        and the immediately preceding quarter is less than 1 
        percent; or
            (2) a declaration of war is in effect.
    (e) Social Security Look-Back.--If in fiscal year 2001 the 
social security surplus is used to finance general operations 
of the Federal Government, an amount equal to the amount used 
shall be deducted from the available amount of discretionary 
spending for fiscal year 2002 for purposes of any concurrent 
resolution on the budget.
    (f) Waiver and Appeal.--Subsection (c)(1) may be waived or 
suspended in the Senate only by an affirmative vote of three-
fifths of the Members, duly chosen and sworn. An affirmative 
vote of three-fifths of the Members of the Senate, duly chosen 
and sworn, shall be required in the Senate to sustain an appeal 
of the ruling of the Chair on a point of order raised under 
this section.

SEC. 202. DEBT REDUCTION LOCK-BOX.

    (a) Point of Order.--It shall not be in order in the House 
of Representatives to consider any reported bill or joint 
resolution, or any amendment thereto or conference report 
thereon, that would cause a surplus for fiscal year 2001 to be 
less than the level (as adjusted) set forth in section 101(4) 
for that fiscal year.
    (b) Special Rule.--The level of the surplus for purposes of 
subsection (a) shall take into account amounts adjusted under 
section 314(a)(2)(B) or (C) of the Congressional Budget Act of 
1974.

SEC. 203. ENHANCED ENFORCEMENT OF BUDGETARY LIMITS.

    (a) Prohibition on Use of Directed Scorekeeping.--(1) It 
shall not be in order in the House to consider any reported 
bill or joint resolution, or amendment thereto or conference 
report thereon, that contains a directed scorekeeping 
provision.
    (2) As used in this subsection, the term ``directed 
scorekeeping'' means directing the Congressional Budget Office 
or the Office of Management and Budget how to estimate any 
provision providing discretionary new budget authority in a 
bill or joint resolution making general appropriations for a 
fiscal year for budgetary enforcement purposes.
    (b) Prohibition on Use of Advance Appropriations.--(1) It 
shall not be in order in the House to consider any reported 
bill or joint resolution, or amendment thereto or conference 
report thereon, that would cause the total level of 
discretionary advance appropriations provided for fiscal years 
after 2001 to exceed $23,500,000,000 (which represents the 
total level of advance appropriations for fiscal year 2001).
    (2) As used in this subsection, the term ``advance 
appropriation'' means any discretionary new budget authority in 
a bill or joint resolution making general appropriations for 
fiscal year 2001 that first becomes available for any fiscal 
year after 2001.
    (c) Effective Date.--This section shall cease to have any 
force or effect on January 1, 2001.

Appropriations.--
            (1) In general.--It shall not be in order in the

                authority for any fiscal year after the budget 
                year that is in excess of the amounts provided 
                in paragraph (2); and
                    (B) provides an appropriation of new budget 
                authority for any fiscal year subsequent to the 
                year after the budget year.
            (2) Limitation on amounts.--The total amount, 
        provided in appropriations legislation for the budget 
        year, of appropriations for the subsequent fiscal year 
        shall not exceed $23,500,000,000.
    (c) Point of Order With Respect to Delayed Obligations.--
            (1) In general.--Except as provided in paragraph 
        (2), it shall not be in order in the Senate to consider 
        any bill, resolution, amendment, motion, or conference 
        report that contains an appropriation of new budget 
        authority for any fiscal year which does not become 
        available upon enactment of such legislation or on the 
        first day of that fiscal year (whichever is later).
            (2) Exception.--Paragraph (1) shall not apply with 
        respect to appropriations in the defense category; nor 
        shall it apply to appropriations reoccurring or

waived or suspended in the Senate only by an affirmative vote

sustain an appeal of the ruling of the Chair on a point of

SEC. 205. EMERGENCY DESIGNATION POINT OF ORDER IN THE SENATE.

    (a) Designations.--
            (1) Guidance.--In making a designation of a 
        provision of legislation as an emergency requirement 
        under section 251(b)(2)(A) or 252(e) of the Balanced 
        Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, the 
        committee report and any statement of managers 
        accompanying that legislation shall analyze whether a 
        proposed emergency requirement meets all the criteria 
        in paragraph (2).
            (2) Criteria.--
                    (A) In general.--The criteria to be 
                considered in determining whether a proposed 
                expenditure or tax change is an emergency 
                requirement are--
                            (i) necessary, essential, or vital 
                        (not merely useful or beneficial);
                            (ii) sudden, quickly coming into 
                        being, and not building up over time;
                            (iii) an urgent, pressing, and 
                        compelling need requiring immediate 
                        action;
                            (iv) subject to subparagraph (B), 
                        unforeseen, unpredictable, and 
                        unanticipated; and
                            (v) not permanent, temporary in 
                        nature.
                    (B) Unforeseen.--An emergency that is part 
                of an aggregate level of anticipated 
                emergencies, particularly when normally 
                estimated in advance, is not unforeseen.
            (3) Justification for failure to meet criteria.--If 
        the proposed emergency requirement does not meet all 
        the criteria set forth in paragraph (2), the committee 
        report or the statement of managers, as the case may 
        be, shall provide a written justification of why the 
        requirement should be accorded emergency status.
    (b) Point of Order.--When the Senate is considering a bill, 
resolution, amendment, motion, or conference report, a point of 
order may be made by a Senator against an emergency designation 
in that measure and if the Presiding Officer sustains that 
point of order, that provision making such a designation shall 
be stricken from the measure and may not be offered as an 
amendment from the floor.
    (c) Waiver and Appeal.--This section may be waived or 
suspended in the Senate only by an affirmative vote of three-
fifths of the Members, duly chosen and sworn. An affirmative 
vote of three-fifths of the Members of the Senate, duly chosen 
and sworn, shall be required in the Senate to sustain an appeal 
of the ruling of the Chair on a point of order raised under 
this section.
    (d) Definition of an Emergency Requirement.--A provision 
shall be considered an emergency designation if it designates 
any item an emergency requirement pursuant to section 
251(b)(2)(A) or 252(e) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency 
Deficit Control Act of 1985.
    (e) Form of the Point of Order.--A point of order under 
this section may be raised by a Senator as provided in section 
313(e) of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974.
    (f) Conference Reports.--If a point of order is sustained 
under this section against a conference report, the report 
shall be disposed of as provided in section 313(d) of the 
Congressional Budget Act of 1974.
    (g) Exception for Defense Spending.--Subsection (b) shall 
not apply against an emergency designation for a provision 
making discretionary appropriations in the defense category.

SEC. 206. MECHANISM FOR IMPLEMENTING INCREASE OF FISCAL YEAR 2001 
                    DISCRETIONARY SPENDING LIMITS.

    (a) Findings.--The Senate finds the following:
            (1) Unless and until the discretionary spending 
        limit for fiscal year 2001 is increased, aggregate 
        appropriations which exceed the current law limits 
        would still be out of order in the Senate and subject 
        to a supermajority vote.
            (2) The functional totals contained in this

medical education for children's hospitals is a high priority 
in this resolution.

SEC. 302. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON PROVIDING ADDITIONAL DOLLARS TO THE 
                    CLASSROOM.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds that--
            (1) strengthening America's public schools while 
        respecting State and local control is critically 
        important to the future of our children and our Nation;
            (2) education is a local responsibility, a State 
        priority, and a national concern;
            (3) a partnership with the Nation's governors, 
        parents, teachers, and principals must take place in 
        order to strengthen public schools and foster 
        educational excellence;
            (4) the consolidation of various Federal education 
        programs will benefit our Nation's children, parents, 
        and teachers by sending more dollars directly to the 
        classroom; and
            (5) our Nation's children deserve an educational 
        system that will provide opportunities to excel.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) Congress should enact legislation that would 
        consolidate 31 Federal K-12 education programs; and
            (2) the Department of Education, the States, and 
        local educational agencies should work together to 
        ensure that not less than 95 percent of all funds 
        appropriated for the purpose of carrying out elementary 
        and secondary education programs administered by the 
        Department of Education are spent for our children in 
        their classrooms.

                 Subtitle B--Sense of House Provisions

SEC. 311. SENSE OF THE HOUSE ON WASTE, FRAUD, AND ABUSE.

    (a) Findings.--The House finds that--
            (1) while the budget may be in balance, it 
        continues to be ridden with waste, fraud, and abuse;
            (2) just last month, auditors documented more than 
        $19,000,000,000 in improper payments each year by such 
        agencies as the Agency of International Development, 
        the Internal Revenue Service, the Social Security 
        Administration, and the Department of Defense;
            (3) the General Accounting Office (GAO) recently 
        reported that the financial management practices of 
        some Federal agencies are so poor that it is unable to 
        determine the full extent of improper Government 
        payments; and
            (4) the GAO now lists a record number of 25 Federal 
        programs that are at ``high risk'' of waste, fraud, and 
        abuse.
    (b) Sense of the House.--It is the sense of the House that 
the Committee on the Budget has created task forces to address 
this issue and that the President should take immediate steps 
to reduce waste, fraud, and abuse within the Federal Government 
and report on such actions to Congress and that any resulting 
savings should be dedicated to debt reduction and tax relief.

SEC. 312. SENSE OF THE HOUSE REGARDING EMERGENCY SPENDING.

    It is the sense of the House that, as part of a 
comprehensive reform of the budget process, the Committees on 
the Budget should develop a definition of, and a process for, 
funding emergencies consistent with the applicable provisions 
of H.R. 853, the Comprehensive Budget Process Reform Act of 
1999, that could be incorporated into the Rules of the House of 
Representatives and the Standing Rules of the Senate.

SEC. 313. SENSE OF THE HOUSE ON ESTIMATES OF THE IMPACT OF REGULATIONS 
                    ON THE PRIVATE SECTOR.

    (a) Findings.--The House finds that--
            (1) the Federal regulatory system sometimes 
        adversely affects many Americans and businesses by 
        imposing financial burdens with little corresponding 
        public benefit;
            (2) currently, Congress has no general mechanism 
        for assessing the financial impact of regulatory 
        activities on the private sector;
            (3) Congress is ultimately responsible for making 
        sure agencies act in accordance with congressional 
        intent and, while the executive branch is responsible 
        for promulgating regulations, Congress should curb 
        ineffective regulations by using its oversight and 
        regulatory powers; and
            (4) a variety of reforms have been suggested to 
        increase congressional oversight over regulatory 
        activity, including directing the President to prepare 
        an annual accounting statement containing several cost/
        benefit analyses, recommendations to reform inefficient 
        regulatory programs, and an identification and analysis 
        of duplications and inconsistencies among such 
        programs.
    (b) Sense of the House.--It is the sense of the House that 
the House should reclaim its role as reformer and take the 
first step toward curbing inefficient regulatory activity by 
passing legislation authorizing the Congressional Budget Office 
to prepare regular estimates on the impact of proposed Federal 
regulations on the private sector.

SEC. 314. SENSE OF THE HOUSE ON BIENNIAL BUDGETING.

    It is the sense of the House that there is a wide range of 
views on the advisability of biennial budgeting and this issue 
should be considered only within the context of comprehensive 
budget process reform.

SEC. 315. SENSE OF THE HOUSE ON ACCESS TO HEALTH INSURANCE AND 
                    PRESERVING HOME HEALTH SERVICES FOR ALL MEDICARE 
                    BENEFICIARIES.

    (a) Access to Health Insurance.--
            (1) Findings.--The House finds that--
                    (A) 44.4 million Americans are currently 
                without health insurance, and that this number 
                is expected to rise to nearly 60 million people 
                in the next 10 years;
                    (B) the cost of health insurance continues 
                to rise, a key factor in increasing the number 
                of uninsured; and
                    (C) there is a consensus that working 
                Americans and their families will suffer from 
                reduced access to health insurance.
            (2) Sense of the house on improving access to 
        health care insurance.--It is the sense of the House 
        that access to affordable health care coverage for all 
        Americans is a priority of the 106th Congress.
    (b) Preserving Home Health Service For All Medicare 
Beneficiaries.--
            (1) Findings.--The House finds that--
                    (A) the Balanced Budget Act of 1997 
                reformed medicare home health care spending by 
                instructing the Health Care Financing 
                Administration to implement a prospective 
                payment system and instituted an interim 
                payment system to achieve savings;
                    (B) the medicare, medicaid, and SCHIP 
                Balanced Budget Refinement Act, 1999, reformed 
                the interim payment system to increase 
                reimbursements to low-cost providers and 
                delayed the automatic 15 percent payment 
                reduction until after the first year of the 
                implementation of the prospective payment 
                system; and
                    (C) patients whose care is more extensive 
                and expensive than the typical medicare patient 
                do not receive supplemental payments in the 
                interim payment system but will receive special 
                protection in the home health care prospective 
                payment system.
            (2) Sense of the house on access to home health 
        care.--It is the sense of the House that--
                    (A) Congress recognizes the importance of 
                home health care for seniors and disabled 
                citizens;
                    (B) Congress and the Administration should 
                work together to maintain quality care for 
                patients whose care is more extensive and 
                expensive than the typical medicare patient, 
                including the most ill and infirmed medicare 
                beneficiaries, while home health care agencies 
                operate in the interim payment system; and
                    (C) Congress and the Administration should 
                work together to avoid the implementation of 
                the 15 percent reduction in the prospective 
                payment system and ensure timely implementation 
                of that system.

SEC. 316. SENSE OF THE HOUSE REGARDING MEDICARE+CHOICE PROGRAMS/
                    REIMBURSEMENT RATES.

    It is the sense of the House that the Medicare+Choice 
regional disparity among reimbursement rates is unfair, and 
that full funding of the Medicare+Choice program is a priority 
as Congress considers any medicare reform legislation.

SEC. 317. SENSE OF THE HOUSE ON DIRECTING THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE 
                    TO ACCEPT NEGATIVE NUMBERS IN FARM INCOME 
                    AVERAGING.

    (a) Findings.--The House finds that--
            (1) farmers' and ranchers' incomes vary widely from 
        year-to-year due to uncontrollable markets and 
        unpredictable weather;
            (2) in the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997, Congress 
        enacted 3-year farm income averaging to protect 
        agricultural producers from excessive tax rates in 
        profitable years;
            (3) last year, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) 
        proposed final regulations for averaging farm income, 
        which failed to make clear that taxable income in a 
        given year may be a negative number; and
            (4) this IRS interpretation can result in farmers 
        paying additional taxes during years in which they 
        experience a loss in income.
    (b) Sense of the House.--It is the sense of the House that 
legislation should be considered during this session of the 
106th Congress to direct the Internal Revenue Service to count 
any net loss of income in determining the proper rate of 
taxation.

SEC. 318. SENSE OF THE HOUSE ON THE IMPORTANCE OF THE NATIONAL SCIENCE 
                    FOUNDATION.

    (a) Findings.--The House finds that--
            (1) the year 2000 will mark the 50th Anniversary of 
        the National Science Foundation;
            (2) the National Science Foundation is the largest 
        supporter of basic research in the Federal Government;
            (3) the National Science Foundation is the second 
        largest supporter of university-based research;
            (4) research conducted by the grantees of the 
        National Science Foundation has led to innovations that 
        have dramatically improved the quality of life of all 
        Americans;
            (5) grants made by the National Science Foundation 
        have been a crucial factor in the development of 
        important technologies that Americans take for granted, 
        such as lasers, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Doppler 
        Radar, and the Internet;
            (6) because basic research funded by the National 
        Science Foundation is high-risk, cutting edge, 
        fundamental, and may not produce tangible benefits for 
        over a decade, the Federal Government is uniquely 
        suited to support such research; and
            (7) the National Science Foundation's focus on 
        peer-reviewed merit based grants represents a model for 
        research agencies across the Federal Government.
    (b) Sense of the House.--It is the sense of the House that 
the function 250 (Basic Science) levels assumean amount of 
funding which ensures that the National Science Foundation is a 
priority in the resolution; and that the National Science Foundation's 
critical role in funding basic research, which leads to the innovations 
that assure the Nation's economic future, and cultivate America's 
intellectual infrastructure, should be recognized.

SEC. 319. SENSE OF THE HOUSE REGARDING SKILLED NURSING FACILITIES.

    It is the sense of the House that the Medicare Payment 
Advisory Commission should continue to carefully monitor the 
medicare skilled nursing benefit to determine if payment rates 
are sufficient to provide quality care, and that if reform is 
recommended, Congress should pass legislation as quickly as 
possible to assure quality skilled nursing care.

SEC. 320. SENSE OF THE HOUSE ON SPECIAL EDUCATION.

    (a) Findings.--The House finds that--
            (1) all children deserve a quality education, 
        including children with disabilities;
            (2) the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act 
        provides that the Federal, State, and local governments 
        are to share in the expense of educating children with 
        disabilities and commits the Federal Government to pay 
        up to 40 percent of the national average per pupil 
        expenditure for children with disabilities;
            (3) the high cost of educating children with 
        disabilities and the Federal Government's failure to 
        fully meet its obligation under the Individuals with 
        Disabilities Education Act stretches limited State and 
        local education funds, creating difficulty in providing 
        a quality education to all students, including children 
        with disabilities;
            (4) the current level of Federal funding to States 
        and localities under the Individuals with Disabilities 
        Education Act is contrary to the goal of ensuring that 
        children with disabilities receive a quality education;
            (5) the Federal Government has failed to 
        appropriate 40 percent of the national average per 
        pupil expenditure per child with a disability as 
        required under the Individuals with Disabilities 
        Education Act to assist States and localities to 
        educate children with disabilities; and
            (6) the levels in function 500 (Education) for 
        fiscal year 2001 assume sufficient discretionary budget 
        authority to accommodate fiscal year 2001 
        appropriations for IDEA, at least $2,000,000,000 above 
        such funding levels appropriated in fiscal year 2000.
    (b) Sense of the House.--It is the sense of the House 
that--
            (1) function 500 (Education) levels assume at least 
        a $2,000,000,000 increase in fiscal year 2001 over the 
        current fiscal year to reflect the commitment of 
        Congress to appropriate 40 percent of the national per 
        pupil expenditure for children with disabilities by a 
        date certain;
            (2) Congress and the President should increase 
        fiscal year 2001 funding for programs under the 
        Individuals with Disabilities Education Act by at least 
        $2,000,000,000 above fiscal year 2000 appropriated 
        levels;
            (3) Congress and the President should give programs 
        under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act 
        the highest priority among Federal elementary and 
        secondary education programs by meeting the commitment 
        to fund the maximum State grant allocation for 
        educating children with disabilities under such Act 
        prior to authorizing or appropriating funds for any new 
        education initiative;
            (4) Congress and the President may consider, if new 
        or increased funding is authorized or appropriated for 
        any elementary and secondary education initiative that 
        directs funds to local educational agencies, providing 
        the flexibility in such authorization or appropriation 
        necessary to allow local educational agencies the 
        authority to use such funds for programs under the 
        Individuals with Disabilities Education Act; and
            (5) if a local educational agency chooses to 
        utilize the authority under section 613(a)(2)(C)(i) of 
        the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act to 
        treat as local funds up to 20 percent of the amount of 
        funds the agency receives under part B of such Act that 
        exceeds the amount it received under that part for the 
        previous fiscal year, then the agency should use those 
        local funds to provide additional funding for any 
        Federal, State, or local education program.

SEC. 321. SENSE OF THE HOUSE REGARDING HCFA DRAFT GUIDELINES.

    (a) Findings.--The House finds that--
            (1) on February 15, 2000, the Health Care Financing 
        Administration within the Department of Health and 
        Human Services issued a draft Medicaid School-Based 
        Administrative Claiming (MAC) Guide; and
            (2) in its introduction, the stated purpose of the 
        draft MAC guide is to provide information for schools, 
        State medicaid agencies, HCFA staff, and other 
        interested parties on the existing requirements for 
        claiming Federal funds under the medicaid program for 
        the costs of administrative activities, such as 
        medicaid outreach, that are performed in the school 
        setting associated with school-based health services 
        programs.
    (b) Sense of the House.--It is the sense of the House 
that--
            (1) many school-based health programs provide a 
        broad range of services that are covered by medicaid, 
        affording access to care for children who otherwise 
        might well go without needed services;
            (2) such programs also can play a powerful role in 
        identifying and enrolling children who are eligible for 
        medicaid, as well as the State Children's Health 
        Insurance programs;
            (3) undue administrative burdens may be placed on 
        school districts and States and deter timely 
        application approval;
            (4) the Health Care Financing Administration should 
        substantially revise the current draft MAC guide 
        because it appears to promulgate new rules that place 
        excessive administrative burdens on participating 
        school districts;
            (5) the goal of the revised guide should be to 
        encourage the appropriate use of medicaid school-based 
        services without undue administrative burdens; and
            (6) the best way to ensure the continued viability 
        of medicaid school-based services is to guarantee that 
        the guidelines are fair and responsible.

SEC. 322. SENSE OF THE HOUSE ON ASSET-BUILDING FOR THE WORKING POOR.

    (a) Findings.--The House finds that--
            (1) 33 percent of all American households and 60 
        percent of African American households have either no 
        financial assets or negative financial assets;
            (2) 46.9 percent of children in America live in 
        households with no financial assets, including 40 
        percent of Caucasian children and 75 percent of African 
        American children;
            (3) incentives, including individual development 
        accounts, are tools demonstrating success at empowering 
        low-income workers;
            (5) middle and upper income Americans currently 
        benefit from tax incentives for building assets; and
            (6) the Federal Government should utilize the 
        Federal tax code to provide low-income Americans with 
        incentives to work and build assets in order to 
        permanently escape poverty.
    (b) Sense of the House.--It is the sense of the House that 
the provisions of this resolution assume that Congress should 
modify the Federal tax law to include Individual Development 
Account provisions in order to encourage low-income workers and 
their families to save for buying a first home, starting a 
business, obtaining an education, or taking other measures to 
prepare for the future.

SEC. 323. SENSE OF THE HOUSE ON THE IMPORTANCE OF SUPPORTING THE 
                    NATION'S EMERGENCY FIRST-RESPONDERS.

    (a) Findings.--The House finds that--
            (1) over 1.2 million men and women work as fire and 
        emergency services personnel in 32,000 fire and 
        emergency medical services departments across the 
        Nation;
            (2) over 80 percent of those who serve do so as 
        volunteers;
            (3) the Nation's firefighters responded to more 
        than 18 million calls in 1998, including over 1.7 
        million fires;
            (4) an average of 100 firefighters per year lose 
        their lives in the course of their duties; and
            (5) the Federal Government has a role in protecting 
        the health and safety of the Nation's fire fighting 
        personnel.
    (b) Sense of the House.--It is the sense of the House 
that--
            (1) the Nation's firefighters and emergency 
        services crucial role in preserving and protecting life 
        and property should be recognized, and such Federal 
        assistance as low-interest loan programs, community 
        development block grant reforms, emergency radio 
        spectrum reallocations, and volunteer fire assistance 
        programs, should be considered; and
            (2) additional resources should be set aside for 
        such assistance.

SEC. 324. SENSE OF THE HOUSE ON ADDITIONAL HEALTH-RELATED TAX RELIEF.

    It is the sense of the House that the reserve fund set 
forth in section 213 assumes $446,000,000 in fiscal year 2001 
and $4,352,000,000 for the period of fiscal years 2001 through 
2005 for health-related tax provisions comparable to those 
contained in H.R. 2990 (as passed by the House).

                 Subtitle C--Sense of Senate Provisions

SEC. 331. SENSE OF THE SENATE SUPPORTING FUNDING LEVELS IN EDUCATIONAL 
                    OPPORTUNITIES ACT.

    It is the sense of the Senate that the levels in this 
resolution assume that of the amounts provided for elementary 
and secondary education within the Budget Function 500 of this 
resolution for fiscal years 2001 through 2005, such funds shall 
be appropriated in proportion to and in accordance with the 
levels authorized in the Educational Opportunities Act, S. 2.

SEC. 332. SENSE OF THE SENATE ON ADDITIONAL BUDGETARY RESOURCES.

    It is the sense of the Senate that the levels contained in 
this resolution assume that--
            (1) there are billions of dollars in wasted 
        expenditures in the Federal Government that should be 
        eliminated; and
            (2) higher projected budget surpluses arising from 
        reductions in government waste and stronger revenue 
        inflows could be used in the future for additional tax 
        relief or debt reduction.

SEC. 333. SENSE OF THE SENATE ON REGARDING THE INADEQUACY OF THE 
                    PAYMENTS FOR SKILLED NURSING CARE.

    It is the sense of the Senate that the levels in this 
resolution assume that--
            (1) the Administration should identify areas where 
        they have the authority to make changes to improve 
        quality, including analyzing and fixing the labor 
        component of the skilled nursing facility market basket 
        update factor; and
            (2) while Congress deliberates funding structural 
        medicare reform and the addition of a prescription drug 
        benefit, it must maintain the continued viability of 
        the current skilled nursing benefit. Therefore, the 
        committees of jurisdiction should ensure that medicare 
        beneficiaries requiring skilled nursing care have 
        access to that care and that those providers have the 
        resources to meet the expectation for high quality 
        care.

SEC. 334. SENSE OF THE SENATE ON VETERANS' MEDICAL CARE.

    It is the sense of the Senate that the levels in this 
resolution assume an increase of $1,400,000,000 in veterans' 
medical care appropriations in fiscal year 2001.

SEC. 335. SENSE OF THE SENATE ON IMPACT AID.

    It is the sense of the Senate that the levels in this 
resolution assume that the Impact Aid Program strive to reach 
the goal that all local educational agencies eligible for

payment under sections 8002 and 8003.

SEC. 336. SENSE OF THE SENATE ON TAX SIMPLIFICATION.

    It is the sense of the Senate that the levels in this

simplification by the end of the year, and the Department of 
the Treasury is requested to develop a report and alternative 
proposals on tax simplification by the end of the year.

SEC. 337. SENSE OF THE SENATE ON ANTITRUST ENFORCEMENT BY THE 
                    DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE AND FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION 
                    REGARDING AGRICULTURE MERGERS AND ANTICOMPETITIVE 
                    ACTIVITY.

    It is the sense of the Senate that the levels in this 
resolution assume that--
            (1) the Antitrust Division and the Bureau of 
        Competition will have adequate resources to enable them 
        to meet their statutory requirements, including those 
        related to reviewing increasingly numerous and complex 
        mergers and investigating and prosecuting 
        anticompetitive business activity; and
            (2) these departments will--
                    (A) dedicate considerable resources to 
                matters and transactions dealing with agri-
                business antitrust and competition; and
                    (B) ensure that all vertical and horizontal 
                mergers implicating agriculture and all 
                complaints regarding possible anticompetitive 
                business practices in the agriculture industry 
                will receive extraordinary scrutiny.

SEC. 338. SENSE OF THE SENATE REGARDING FAIR MARKETS FOR AMERICAN 
                    FARMERS.

    It is the sense of the Senate that the levels in this 
resolution assume that--
            (1) the United States should take steps to increase 
        support for American farmers in order to level the 
        playing field for United States agricultural producers 
        and increase the leverage of the United States in World 
        Trade Organization negotiations on agriculture as long

        otherwise exceed or impair existing Uruguay Round

        for women throughout their old age;

        women, under whatever approach is taken to reform 
        social security, should receive no lesser a share of

        receive today; and
            (4) the sacrifice that women make to care for their 
        family should be recognized during reform of social

SEC. 354. SENSE OF THE SENATE ON MEDICARE PRESCRIPTION DRUGS.

    It is the sense of the Senate that the levels in this

Congress should explore a medicare prescription drug proposal

            (2) increases access for all medicare

        background system established under section 103(b) of

        under section 330 of the Public Health Service Act (42

        of individuals who receive health care services at 
        community, migrant, homeless, and public housing health 
        centers; and
            (2) appropriations for consolidated health centers

       JOINT EXPLANATORY STATEMENT OF THE COMMITTEE OF CONFERENCE

      The managers on the part of the House and the Senate at 
the conference on the disagreeing votes of the two Houses on 
the amendment of the Senate to the concurrent resolution (H. 
Con. Res. 290), establishing the congressional budget for the 
United States Government for fiscal year 2001, revising the 
congressional budget for the United States Government for 
fiscal year 2000, and setting forth appropriate budgetary 
levels for each of fiscal years 2002 through 2005, submit the 
following joint statement to the House and the Senate in 
explanation of the effect of the action agreed upon by the 
managers and recommended in the accompanying conference report:
      The Senate amendment struck all of the House bill after 
the enacting clause and inserted a substitute text.
      The House recedes from its disagreement to the amendment 
of the Senate with an amendment that is a substitute for the 
House bill and the Senate amendment. The differences between 
the House bill, the Senate amendment, and the substitute agreed 
to in conference are noted below, except for clerical 
corrections, conforming changes made necessary by agreements 
reached by the conferees, and minor drafting and clerical 
changes.
      The conferees intend that to the extent that the 
legislative text in the conference report is the same as in the 
House or Senate-passed resolutions, the corresponding sections 
in the House Report 106-530 and Senate Report 106-251 remain a 
source of legislative history of the drafters' intent on the 
concurrent resolution.

                              DECLARATION

House resolution
      The House resolution revises the budgetary levels for 
fiscal year 2000 and establishes the appropriate levels for 
fiscal year 2001, and for fiscal years 2002, 2003, 2004, and 
2005.
Senate amendment
      The Senate resolution revises the budgetary levels for 
fiscal year 2000 and establishes the appropriate levels for 
fiscal year 2001, and for fiscal years 2002, 2003, 2004, and 
2005.
Conference agreement
      The Conference Agreement revises and replaces the 
budgetary levels for the current year, fiscal year 2000, as 
established by the report accompanying H. Con. Res. 68, the 
Concurrent Resolution on the Budget for Fiscal Year 2000 (H. 
Rept. 106-91); establishes the levels for the budget year, 
fiscal year 2001; establishes levels and for each of the 4 out-
years, fiscal years 2002, 2003, 2004, and 2005.
      The authority to revise the current year levels is set 
forth in section 304 of the Congressional Budget and 
Impoundment Control Act of 1974 [Budget Act]. These revised 
levels supersede those established and adjusted pursuant to H. 
Con. Res. 68 for all purposes under the Budget Act, including 
to enforce sections 302(f) and 311(a) of the Budget Act with 
respect to fiscal year 2000.

                     Display of Levels and Amounts

                     RECOMMENDED LEVELS AND AMOUNTS

      The required contents of the concurrent resolution on the 
budget are set forth in section 301(a) of the Budget Act.
House resolution
      The House resolution includes amounts for the following 
budgetary totals required pursuant to section 301(a) of the 
Budget Act: totals of new budget authority, outlays, revenue, 
the levels by which revenues should be reduced, surpluses, and 
public debt.
Senate amendment
      Title I of the Senate amendment contains a provision to 
focus attention on levels of debt held by the public. Section 
101(6) provides advisory debt held by the public levels. These 
debt held by the public levels reflect the fact that the 
resolution devotes the entire Social Security surplus to the 
reduction of debt held by the public.
      Section 101(c) shows (for informational purposes only) 
the level of budget authority and outlays for Social Security 
administrative expenses. These expenses, as is the case with 
all expenditures from the Social Security trust funds, are off-
budget; however for scoring purposes they are counted against 
the discretionary spending limits because they are provided 
annually in appropriations acts.
Conference agreement
      Title I of the Conference Agreement includes the amounts 
required for both the House and Senate by section 301(a) of the 
Budget Act.
      For purposes of enforcement in the Senate of section 
311(a)(3) of the Budget Act, the Conference Agreement also 
includes the unified totals for revenue and outlays for the 
Federal Old-Age and Survivors Insurance and Disability 
Insurance Trust Funds.
      The Conference Agreement includes appropriate levels for 
debt held by the public as were included in the Senate 
amendment with an amendment modifying the amounts.

                         Budget Function Levels

      Pursuant to section 301(a)(3) of the Budget Act, the 
budget resolution must set appropriate levels for each major 
functional category based on the 302(a) allocations and the 
budgetary totals.
      The respective levels of the House resolution, the Senate 
amendment, and the conference report for each major budget 
function are as follows:

                     function 050: national defense

      Major Programs in Function--The National Defense function 
includes funds to develop, maintain, and equip the military 
forces of the United States. Roughly 95 percent of the funding 
in this function goes to Department of Defense--Military 
activities, including funds for ballistic missile defense. That 
component also includes pay and benefits for military and 
civilian personnel; research, development, testing, and 
evaluation; procurement of weapons systems; military 
construction and family housing; and operations and maintenance 
of the defense establishment. The remaining funding in the 
function goes toward atomic energy defense activities of the 
Department of Energy, and other defense-related activities.
      House Resolution--The House resolution revises the fiscal 
year 2000 levels to $288.9 billion in budget authority [BA] and 
$282.5 billion in outlays. For fiscal year 2001, it sets forth 
$306.3 billion in BA and $297.6 billion in outlays. Over 5 
years, it provides $1,586.3 billion in BA and $1,554.7 billion 
in outlays.
      Senate Amendment--The Senate amendment revises the fiscal 
year 2000 levels to $291.6 billion in BA and $288.1 billion in 
outlays. For fiscal year 2001, it sets forth $309.8 billion in 
BA and $296.7 billion in outlays. Over 5 years, it provides 
$1,589.2 billion in BA and $1,555.1 billion in outlays. These 
amounts reflect $4.0 billion in additional resources added to 
2001 during the Senate's consideration of S. Con. Res. 101. 
This addition assumes that no such amount is added to 2000. The 
total amount also includes $10 million in BA and outlays in 
2001 and $27.5 million in BA and outlays over 2000-2005. This 
latter amount was adopted by a vote of 99-0 and was explicitly 
assumed to supplement the compensation of enlisted personnel in 
the military who currently receive food stamps.
      Conference Agreement--The Conference Agreement revises 
the fiscal year 2000 levels to $291.6 billion in BA and $288.1 
billion in outlays. For fiscal year 2001, it sets forth $309.9 
billion in BA and $296.7 billion in outlays. Over 5 years, it 
provides $1,589.8 billion in BA and $1,555.9 billion in 
outlays.
      The Conference Agreement adopts the assumptions of the 
Senate amendment with respect to the addition of $4.0 billion 
in BA and commensurate outlays. It also adopts the Senate 
amendment assumption regarding enlisted military personnel on 
food stamps.

would implement the spending or revenue changes provided for in 
the resolution. Any bill considered pursuant to a 
reconciliation instruction is subject to special procedures set 
forth in section 310(b), (c), (d), and (e) and section 313 of 
the Budget Act.
House resolution
      Section 4 contains two sets of instructions to the 
Committee on Ways and Means: one for tax relief, and the other 
for debt reduction. The reporting schedule for the tax bills is 
as follows: first bill, May 26; second bill, June 23; third 
bill, July 28; and fourth bill, September 22. The bills 
providing for a reduction in debt held by the public coincide 
with the first and last tax bills on May 26 and September 22. 
The Committee assumes it will be unnecessary to consider the 
second debt reduction bill if the President agrees to the 
earlier reconciliation bills.
      Subsection (a) directs the Committee on Ways and Means to 
report legislation that will achieve a reduction in revenue of 
$10 billion in fiscal year 2001 and $150 billion over 5 years. 
Although the budget resolution assumes a year-to-year 
distribution of the revenue reduction for the tax bills, the 
Ways and Means Committee bill may be higher or lower than these 
year-to-year levels as long as the net revenue loss does not 
exceed the first-year and five-year totals.
      Subsection (b) directs the Committee on Ways and Means to 
report two bills that would reduce the level of debt held by 
the public: the first bill must reduce debt by $10 billion in 
fiscal year 2001 and the second bill must reduce debt by no 
more than $20 billion in fiscal year 2001.
Senate amendment
      The Senate amendment contains a reconciliation 
instruction to reduce revenues by not more than $13.033 billion

the sum of the fiscal years 2001 through 2005.
      The Senate Finance Committee would be required to report 
reconciliation legislation by September 22, 2000.
Conference agreement
      Section 103 of the Conference Agreement includes 
instructions to the Committee onWays and Means to report two 
bills that reduce revenue by a total of $11.6 billion for fiscal year 
2001 and $150 billion for the period of fiscal year 2001 through 2005. 
The Committee on Ways and Means is required to report the first bill to 
the House on July 14 and the second bill on September 13.
      In addition, the Conference Agreement directs the 
Committee on Ways and Means to report two separate bills that 
reduce debt held by the public. The first bill must reduce debt 
held by the public by $7.5 billion and the second by up to 
$19.1 billion. The conferees intend for the second bill to lock 
in for debt reduction any part of the amounts assumed for tax 
relief if the tax bills do not become law. These bills are to 
be reported by July 14 and September 13, respectively. While 
the reporting dates for these two bills coincide with the 
deadlines for the two tax bills, they are to be reported as 
separate freestanding bills.
      Section 104 of the Conference Agreement provides for two 
reconciliation bills in the Senate (the first, reported from 
the Senate Finance Committee by July 14, 2000, and the second 
reported from the Senate Finance Committee by September 13, 
2000). The sum of the bills (if both were to be enacted) may 
not exceed $11.6 billion for 2001 and $150 billion for fiscal 
years 2001 through 2005.

                           302(a) Allocations

      As required in section 302(a) of the Budget Act, the 
joint statement of managers includes an allocation, based on 
the Conference Agreement, of total budget authority and total 
outlays for each House and Senate committee.
Conference Agreement
      The joint statement of managers establishes allocations 
that are consistent with the budgetary totals and functional 
levels in Title I. The joint statement establishes allocations 
for the budget year, fiscal year 2001, and each of the out-
years covered by the budget resolution, fiscal years 2001 
through 2005. In addition, the joint statement provides a 
revised allocation for fiscal year 2000.
      In the House, the 302(a) allocation to the Appropriations 
Committee is also divided into separate categories for general 
purpose discretionary, mass transit and highways. The 
allocations to the authorizing committees in the House are also 
divided into current law, assumed discretionary action levels, 
and reauthorizations.
      As required under section 302(a), the allocations for the 
House and the Senate are also displayed in three separate 
discretionary categories that are consistent with the limits 
set forth in section 250(c)(4) of the Balanced Budget and 
Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 [Deficit Control Act]: 
general purpose discretionary, mass transit, and highways.
      Although this resolution revises the levels for fiscal 
year 2000, new allocations to Senate Committees are not 
displayed herein because there is no further change from 
current law assumed for 2000 in this resolution that needs to 
be allocated.
      The 302(a) allocations are as follows:

                Implementation and Enforcement of Levels

      Section 301(b)(4) of the Budget Act permits the 
resolution to ``. . . require such other procedures, relating 
to the budget, as may be appropriate to carry out the purposes 
of this Act.'' Authority for Congress to determine its own 
rules is set forth in Section 5 of Article I of the United 
States Constitution. Under these authorities, budget 
resolutions have formulated congressional procedures to enforce 
budgetary limitations, accommodated legislation with costs not 
reflected in the resolution, and implemented the levels and 
assumptions set forth by the resolution.

                         ENFORCEMENT PROCEDURES

      The Budget Act establishes procedures to enforce the 
levels set forth in the budget resolution. The budget 
resolution also can establish additional rules to enforce the 
budgetary levels it sets forth. Most budget-related rules so 
established are enforced through points of order that can be 
raised by any Member of the appropriate House immediately prior 
to the consideration of legislation. Usually such points of 
order may be raised against any bill or joint resolution, 
amendments thereto or a Conference Agreement thereon. In some 
cases, the points of order apply to certain motions.
House resolution
      Section 5 extends an existing point of order established 
to prevent Social Security surpluses from being reduced. 
Subsection (a) provides various findings relating to the 
budgetary status of Social Security.
      Subsection (b) establishes a freestanding rule 
prohibiting the consideration in the House or the Senate of any 
budget resolution that sets forth an on-budget deficit. It 
recognizes that if the budget resolution provides for an on-
budget deficit, it is implicitly relying on Social Security to 
finance the general operations of the Federal Government. 
Paragraph (2) clarifies that, for purposes of that section, 
deficit levels are those set forth in the resolution pursuant 
to section 301 of the Budget Act.
      Section 6 prohibits the House from considering 
legislation that would reduce the surplus below the levels set 
forth in section 2(4) of the resolution (as adjusted for the 
reserve funds). The reason for this new rule is to ensure that 
the portion of the surplus reserved for tax cuts is used to pay 
down the debt if the tax reductions do not become law. Under 
current law, committees can circumvent the allocations, 
aggregates and discretionary limits by simply designating 
legislation an emergency. This designation results in a dollar-
for-dollar increase in the allocations, aggregates, and 
discretionary spending limits. As one committee recently 
observed in a report accompanying a bill, the only real 
constraint on such committees is the adverse publicity that 
would result if the emergency-designated appropriations 
resulted in an on-budget deficit.
      This restriction is enforced by a point of order which, 
if sustained, would preclude further consideration of an 
offending measure. The point of order would apply to both tax 
and spending bills. With respect to spending bills, the point 
of order would apply to both direct spending bills reported by 
authorizing committees and appropriations bills reported by the 
Appropriations Committee. For the purpose of the point of 
order, the surplus is the amount established in section 2(4). 
These levels are adjusted for the revenue legislation set forth 
in the reconciliation instructions in section 4 and are subject 
to the adjustments and reserve funds provided for in the 
resolution.
      Section 31 establishes two new restrictions designed to 
prevent the House from considering legislation that circumvents 
the allocations and aggregates set forth in the budget 
resolution. Both restrictions are enforceable through points of 
order that preclude consideration of an offending measure. The 
points of order may be raised against any reported bill, joint 
resolution, amendment to such a measure or any resulting 
Conference Agreement. They are applicable in both the House and 
the Senate. These two restrictions are outlined below.
      Subsection (a) prohibits the consideration of legislation 
that would direct the Congressional Budget Office [CBO] or the 
Office of Management and Budget [OMB] to estimate the costs of 
a measure in a specified manner. This subsection assumes that 
any type of directed scoring is intended to circumvent a 
committee's allocation, the budget resolution's aggregate 
levels of budget authority and outlays, or the discretionary 
spending limits set forth in the Deficit Control Act. In the 
absence of such directed scoring, CBO and OMB are required to 
adhere to scoring conventions set forth in sections 257 of the 
Deficit Control Act and the joint statement of managers 
accompanying the Balanced Budget Act of 1997 (H. Rept. 105-
217).
      Subsection (b)(1) prohibits the consideration of 
legislation that would provide an amount of advance 
discretionary spending exceeding $23 billion. Subsection (b)(2) 
defines an advance appropriation as any general appropriation 
for fiscal year 2001 that would provide budget authority first 
made available in fiscal year 2002 or later. A significant 
level of advanced appropriations is permitted because in some 
programmatic areas, such as education, the planning cycle of 
State or local government recipients does not coincide with the 
Federal budget cycle. These governments need to know in advance 
how much they will receive from the Federal Government in order 
to accurately develop their budgets.
      The Committee assumes that in order to advise the 
presiding officer on a point of order, the chairman will 
monitor the current level of enacted advanced appropriations in 
conjunction with the Current Level reports required by sections 
302(f), 311(a), and Rule 26 of the Rules of Procedure for the 
House Budget Committee.
Senate amendment
      Section 201: Congressional Lockbox for Social Security 
Surpluses. The Senate amendment contains language which is very 
similar to section 201 of the Conference Agreement on the 
fiscal year 2000 budget resolution. This ``Social Security 
lockbox,'' as it is known,provides a point of order in both the 
House of Representatives and the Senate against a budget resolution 
that sets forth an on-budget deficit for any fiscal year. This ensures 
that Social Security surpluses can not be used to finance deficit 
spending.
      The point of order will now be permanent and in the 
Senate will require 60 votes for a waiver or to sustain an 
appeal. In addition, a ``double lock'' is now attached to this 
lockbox point of order by adding a ``lookback''. The 
``lookback'' requires that after the end of the fiscal year, in 
its next budget resolution, Congress must look back to see if 
any deficit spending has occurred and make the Social Security 
trust fund whole in the subsequent year by reducing future 
discretionary spending by an equivalent amount.
      Section 207: Emergency Designation Point of Order in the 
Senate. The Senate amendment contains language which provides a 
60-vote point of order in the Senate against any legislation 
(including Conference Agreements) that contains an emergency 
designation with respect to any spending or revenues. 
Subsection (g) contains an exception for all discretionary 
defense spending. This section is very similar to section 206 
of the Conference Agreement on the fiscal year 2000 budget 
resolution with one exception: the point of order is now 
permanent. As was the case last year, the point of order would 
operate similar to the Senate's Byrd Rule (section 313 of the 
Budget Act ) in that if the point of order is sustained, the 
offending language (in this case the emergency designation) can 
be excised from the bill, amendment or Conference Agreement, 
leaving the remainder intact. This is likely to result in the 
remaining language then being subject to some other Budget Act 
point of order because the additional spending would then be 
scored against either the discretionary spending limits, the 
section 311 aggregates, or a committee's allocation.
      Section 208: Reserve Fund Pending the Increase of fiscal 
year 2001 Discretionary Spending Limits. Section 312(b) of the 
Budget Act provides a 60-vote point of order in the Senate 
against any legislation that exceeds the discretionary spending 
limits set forth in section 251 of the Deficit Control Act. 
This point of order applies to a concurrent resolution on the 
budget as well as substantive legislation. Sustaining the 
current discretionary spending limits is not feasible based on 
recent budget submissions by President Clinton and 
congressional action.
      The Senate amendment envisions a level of discretionary 
spending which exceeds the current statutory limits. However, 
because of the restrictions of section 312(b), the functional 
totals and spending aggregates contained in this resolution 
technically indicate a level of discretionary spending that 
adheres to the current-law limits. The section 302(a) 
allocation to the Committee on Appropriations is also in 
compliance with the current limits. This is achieved by 
assuming a reserve amount within function 920 (allowances).
      The Senate amendment contains language which provides the 
chairman of the Committee on the Budget in the Senate with the 
authority to adjust the section 302(a) allocation to the 
Committee on Appropriations up to the level of discretionary 
spending envisioned by the resolution, only after legislation 
has been enacted that increases the statutory 
discretionaryspending limits. For the purposes of this section, the 
Senate amendment assumes that only the fiscal year 2001 limits will be 
increased. No assumption is made with respect to the appropriate level 
for fiscal year 2002. The Senate amendment also intends that in order 
to maintain mathematical consistency and accurate enforcement of the 
budget resolution, the chairman will also be authorized to adjust the 
aggregates contained in the resolution. Therefore it will be necessary 
to amend the language of section 208 to provide the chairman with this 
additional authority.
      Section 209: Congressional Firewall for Defense and Non-
Defense Spending. The Senate amendment contains language that, 
upon the enactment of legislation which increases the 
discretionary spending limits for fiscal year 2001, establishes 
a ``firewall'' between defense and nondefense discretionary 
spending in the Senate. This firewall consists of limits on the 
overall level of both defense and nondefense spending. The 
nondefense portion includes the outlays for both highways and 
mass transit. These limits will be enforced by a 60-vote point 
of order against a measure that exceeds the limits.
      Section 210: Mechanisms for Strengthening Budgetary 
Integrity. The Senate amendment contains language establishing 
two new points of order in the Senate, one with respect to 
advanced appropriations and the other with respect to delayed 
obligations. Both points of order require 60-votes for a waiver 
or to sustain an appeal of the ruling of the Chair. Similar to 
the emergency designation point of order in section 207 of the 
Senate amendment, these points of order also operate like the 
Byrd Rule: if the point of order is sustained, the offending 
language will be excised from the measure--including the 
Conference Agreement. Both points of order expire at the end of 
fiscal year 2002 in keeping with the lifetime of the current 
discretionary spending limits.
      Section 210(b) of the Senate amendment provides a point 
of order against any appropriation that results in the sum of 
all advances from fiscal year 2001 into fiscal year 2002 (or 
into any subsequent fiscal year) in excess of the amounts that 
were advanced from fiscal year 2000 into fiscal year 2001 for 
education programs ($23 billion).
      Section 210(c) of the Senate amendment provides a point 
of order against the use of any delayed obligations in an 
appropriations bill with specific exceptions for any delays in 
the defense category and any reoccurring or customary delays 
(including a date and a dollar limitation) that are listed in 
this section. These specified delays total approximately $11.2 
billion.
      Section 210(g) of the Senate amendment provides guidance 
for interpreting the germaneness requirement found in section 
305(b)(2) of the Budget Act. Section 305 requires that all 
amendments offered on the floor to a budget resolution or a 
reconciliation bill must be germane to the underlying 
legislation and is enforced by a 60-vote point of order in the 
Senate. The Senate amendment states that an amendment will be 
considered not germane if it contains only precatory (non-
binding) language. This is designed to place a 60-vote hurdle 
with respect towhat is commonly referred to as ``sense of the 
Senate'' amendments. Note that it is not meant to preclude the 
inclusion of ``purpose'' or ``findings'' language that is part of an 
otherwise substantive amendment.
Conference agreement
      Section 201 of the Conference Agreement extends section 
201 of H. Con. Res. 68, which prohibits the consideration in 
both the House and the Senate of any budget resolution that 
sets forth an on-budget deficit. Subsection (a) makes various 
findings regarding the relationship between the Social Security 
surplus and the Federal budget. This section is enforceable by 
a point of order that may be waived by a majority vote in the 
House and a three-fifths vote in the Senate. The rule applies 
to any budget resolution establishing levels for fiscal year 
2002 or revising the levels set forth in this resolution for 
fiscal year 2001. It also applies to amendments or Conference 
Agreements on such resolutions. As with other budget-related 
points of order, determinations of the appropriate levels are 
made by the Budget Committee of the appropriate House. The 
Conference Agreement includes the exception contained in the 
Senate amendment for periods of war or low economic growth.
      Section 202 of the Conference Agreement establishes a 
procedure for preserving the surpluses set forth in the 
resolution. This procedure applies only to the House. Section 
202 specifically prohibits the consideration of any measure in 
the House that would reduce the surplus below the level set 
forth in section 101(4) (as appropriately adjusted). It is 
enforced by a point of order which, if sustained, would 
preclude consideration of the measure. The House conferees 
intend for determinations of whether a measure would cause the 
surplus to be less than the levels in the budget resolution in 
the same manner as such determinations are made under Section 
311(a) of the Budget Act.
      In order to enforce this provision, the House Budget 
Committee will monitor the current level of the surplus, which 
is a function of enacted spending and tax legislation, and the 
surplus levels set forth in the budget resolution.
      This point of order will not preclude the consideration 
of legislation assumed in the appropriate surplus levels for 
which adjustments are made pursuant to sections 214 through 
220.
      The House conferees intend this mechanism to ensure that 
the surpluses reserved for either tax relief or debt reduction 
are not used to finance higher spending. Under current law and 
the terms of recent budget resolutions, there is nothing to 
prevent spending and tax legislation from eroding the surplus 
set forth in the resolution. A measure may implicitly tap into 
this surplus by providing an appropriation for any program or 
purpose enumerated in section 314 of the Budget Act. Doing so 
automatically increases the levels in the budget resolution 
above their original amounts, thereby reducing the current 
level of the surplus. This mechanism is designed to prevent 
this from happening.
      Section 203 of the Conference Agreement provides for the 
enhanced enforcement of budgetary limits. It applies only to 
the House. Subsection (a) prohibits consideration in the House 
of appropriation bills containing directed scoring language. A 
directed scoring provision is defined as legislative language 
that directs CBO or OMB how to estimate the discretionary new 
budget authority of a provision for budget enforcement 
purposes. The House conferees intend for appropriate scoring 
conventions to be used to enforce the budget resolution under 
the Budget Act, and the appropriations caps and pay-as-you-go 
[PAYGO] requirements set forth in the Deficit Control Act. The 
conferees recognize it may be necessary to occasionally waive 
this provision in order to assure that costs are scored to the 
appropriate committee in omnibus appropriations bills. This 
subsection expires on January 1, 2001.
      Subsection (b)(1) prohibits the consideration in the 
House of legislation that would provide an amount of advance 
discretionary spending exceeding $23.5 billion. Subsection 
(b)(2) defines an advance appropriation as any general 
appropriation for fiscal year 2001 that would provide budget 
authority first made available in fiscal year 2002 or later. 
This subsection also expires on January 1, 2001.
      Section 204 of the Conference Agreement contains language 
establishing two new points of order in the Senate, one with 
respect to advance appropriations and the other with respect to 
delayed obligations. Total advances are limited to $23.5 
billion and permissible delays include only those which are 
recurring or customary or relate to discretionary defense 
spending. Both points of order require 60 votes for a waiver or 
to sustain an appeal of the ruling of the Chair. Similar to the 
emergency designation point of order in section 207 of the 
Senate amendment, these points of order also operate like the 
Byrd Rule: if the point of order is sustained, the offending 
language will be excised from the measure--including any 
conference agreement. Both points of order expire at the end of 
fiscal year 2002 in keeping with the lifetime of the current 
discretionary spending limits. The Conference Agreement also 
retains the provision from section 210(g) of the Senate 
Amendment with a modification.
      Section 205 of the Conference Agreement retains the 
language from section 207 of the Senate amendment which 
establishes a 60 vote point of order in the Senate against 
legislation (including Conference Agreements) that contains an 
emergency designation with respect to any spending or revenues. 
Subsection (g) contains an exception for all discretionary 
defense spending. This section is very similar to section 206 
of the Conference Agreement on the fiscal year 2000 budget 
resolution with one exception: the point of order is now made 
permanent. As was the case last year, the point of order would 
operate similarly to the Senate's Byrd Rule (section 313 of the 
Budget Act) in that if the point of order is sustained, the 
offending language (in this case the emergency designation) can 
be excised from the bill, amendment or Conference Agreement, 
leaving the remainder in tact. This is likely to result in the 
remaining language then being subject to some other Budget Act 
point of order because the additional spending would then be 
scored against either the discretionary spending limits, the 
section 311 aggregates, or a committee's allocation.
      Section 206 of the Conference Agreement retains the 
language from section 208 of the Senate amendment and 
establishes a mechanism in the Senate for implementing an 
increase in fiscal year 2001 discretionary spending limits. 
This provision permits the chairman of the Senate Committee on 
the Budget to revise the section 302(a) allocation to the 
Committee on Appropriations (and other appropriate budgetary 
levels), once an increase in the discretionary spending limits 
for fiscal year 2001 is enacted.
      Section 207 of the Conference Agreement retains the 
language of section 209 of the Senate amendment and provides 
that, upon the enactment of legislation increasing the 
discretionary spending limits for fiscal year 2001, there is 
established a ``firewall'' between defense and nondefense 
discretionary spending in the Senate. This firewall consists of 
limits on the overall level of both defense and nondefense 
spending. The nondefense portion includes the outlays for both 
highways and mass transit. These limits will be enforced by a 
60-vote point of order against a measure that exceeds the 
limits.
      The Senate's PAYGO point of order was modified in section 
207 of the Conference Agreement on the fiscal year 2000 budget 
resolution to make clear that spending of on-budget surpluses 
would not violate the PAYGO rule. This rule continues in 
effect, unchanged by this resolution, and is reprinted below:

               Pay-As-You-Go Point of Order in the Senate

      See Section 207 of H. Con. Res. 68 (106th Cong. 1st 
Sess.)
      (a) Purposes.--The Senate declares that it is essential 
to--
            (1) ensure continued compliance with the balanced 
        budget plan set forth in this resolution; and
            (2) continue the pay-as-you-go enforcement system.
      (b) Point of Order.--
            (1) In general.--It shall not be in order in the 
        Senate to consider any direct spending or revenue 
        legislation that would increase the on-budget deficit 
        or cause an on-budget deficit for any one of the three 
        applicable time periods as measured in paragraphs (5) 
        and (6).
            (2) Applicable time periods.--For purposes of this 
        subsection the term ``applicable time period'' means 
        any one of the three following periods:
                    (A) The first year covered by the most 
                recently adopted concurrent resolution on the 
                budget.
                    (B) The period of the first 5 fiscal years 
                covered by the most recently adopted concurrent 
                resolution on the budget.
                    (C) The period of the 5 fiscal years 
                following the first 5 fiscal years covered by 
                the most recently adopted concurrent resolution 
                on the budget.
            (3) Direct-spending legislation.--For purposes of 
        this subsection and except as provided in paragraph 
        (4), the term ``direct-spending legislation'' means any 
        bill, joint resolution, amendment, motion, or 
        Conference Agreement that affects direct spending as 
        that term is defined by and interpreted for purposes of 
        the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act 
        of 1985.
            (4) Exclusion.--For purposes of this subsection the 
        terms ``direct-spending legislation''and ``revenue 
        legislation'' do not include--
                    (A) any concurrent resolution on the 
                budget; or
                    (B) any provision of legislation that 
                affects the full funding of, and continuation 
                of, the deposit insurance guarantee commitment 
                in effect on the date of enactment of the 
                Budget Enforcement Act of 1990.
            (5) Baseline.--Estimates prepared pursuant to this 
        section shall--
                    (A) use the baseline used for the most 
                recently adopted concurrent resolution on the 
                budget; and
                    (B) be calculated under the requirements of

        must also increase the on-budget deficit or causes an 
        on-budget deficit when taken together with all direct 
        spending and revenue legislation enacted since the 
        beginning of the calendar year not accounted for in the 
        baseline under paragraph (5)(A), except that the direct

the Senate only by the affirmative vote of three-fifths of the 
Members, duly chosen and sworn.
      (d) Appeals.--Appeals in the Senate from the decisions of 
the Chair relating to any provision of this section shall be 
limited to 1 hour, to be equally divided between, andcontrolled

the case may be. An affirmative vote of three-fifths of the Members of 
the Senate, duly chosen and sworn, shall be required in the Senate to 
sustain an appeal of the ruling of the Chair on a point of order raised 
under this section.

                             RESERVE FUNDS

      Reserve funds are special procedures for adjusting the 
levels in the budget resolution to accommodate specified 
classes of legislation. Usually the cost of these bills is not 
assumed in either the total revenue and spending levels or the 
appropriate committee's 302(a) allocations. In the absence of 
the adjustments, any reported bill would exceed the reporting 
committees' allocations in violation of section 302(f) of the 
Budget Act, subjecting it to a point of order which could 
preclude the applicable House from considering the measure. The 
adjustments are usually automatically triggered by the 
consideration of a measure on the House or Senate floor. In the 
case of the reserve funds set forth herein, the adjustments may 
be made at the discretion of the Budget Committee chairman of 
the House in which the measure is being considered and are 
subject to various limitations.
House resolution
      Section 7 establishes several procedures to ensure that 
an amount equal to the revenue reduction assumed for tax relief 
is used for that purpose, or, if the tax legislation is not 
enacted into law, used to reduce the public debt. Subsection 
(a) directs the Budget Committee chairman to reduce the 
aggregate by the amount that Federal revenues should be changed 
for fiscal year 2001 ($150 billion over 5 years) to zero. In 
subsection (b), this level is then increased as each of the 
reconciliation bills is considered by Congress. Because only 
specified bills would cause the adjustment to be made, any 
other bill that would use the revenue for other purposes would 
be subject to a point of order.
      Section 8 provides a reserve fund of $50 billion that may 
be used for tax relief or debt reduction. Any part of this 
reserve fund used for tax relief would be in addition to the 
tax relief assumed in section 2(1). If the Committee on Ways 
and Means reports legislation reducing revenue by an amount in 
excess of its reconciliation instructions, subsection (b) 
allows the Budget Committee chairman to increase the aggregate 
level of revenue reduction by that amount. The total increase 
under this section, however, may not exceed $5.155 billion in 
fiscal year 2001 and $50 billion over 5 years.
      Section 9 provides for an adjustment in the appropriate 
levels of the budget resolution if the Congressional Budget 
Office [CBO] releases a report projecting an increase in the 
on-budget surplus. If there is an increase in the surplus 
relative to the CBO estimates underlying the budget resolution, 
the Budget Committee chairman has the option to choose among 
any combination of the following: increasing the allocations to 
the authorizing committees; increasing the allocation of debt 
held by the public; and increasing the amount of revenue 
reduction. The sum of the adjustments may not exceed the 
projected increase in the surplus for fiscal year 2000 and for 
the period of fiscal years 2001 through 2005 included in the 
updated CBO report. Additionally, section 9 permits the Budget 
Committee chairman to direct the Committee on Ways and Means to 
report a bill reducing debt held by the public by an amount 
equal to any increase in the surplus for fiscal year 2000.
      Section 10 establishes a reserve fund for certain 
Medicare-related legislation. The Budget Committee chairman has 
the option to increase the allocations of budget authority and 
outlays to the Committees on Ways and Means and Commerce, and 
the aggregates for legislation providing for Medicare reform 
and prescription drug coverage. The adjustments are in the 
amounts provided by the bill for the specified purpose, but not 
to exceed $2 billion in budget authority and outlays in fiscal 
year 2001 and $40 billion in budget authority and outlays over 
the 5-year period. The reserve fund assumes that this 
legislation will not be included in a reconciliation bill.
      Section 11 establishes a reserve fund for agriculture for 
fiscal year 2000. The Budget Committee chairman is authorized 
to increase the allocations of budget authority and outlays to 
the Committee on Agriculture for legislation that provides 
income assistance to farmers and farm producers. The reserve 
fund is based on the assumption that the legislation will be 
reported bythe Committee on Agriculture as a freestanding bill, 
rather than included in a supplemental appropriations bill, as has been 
the case in previous years. The chairman of the Budget Committee may 
make the adjustment by whatever amount of budget authority and 
resulting outlays are provided by the bill, but in no event may the 
adjustment exceed $6 billion in fiscal year 2000. The resolution 
assumes all of the budget authority will be obligated and paid out of 
the Treasury in fiscal year 2000.
      Section 12 provides a reserve fund for risk management or 
income support legislation in fiscal year 2001 similar to that 
included in last year's budget resolution. The reserve fund 
authorizes the Budget Committee chairman to increase the 
allocations of budget authority and outlays to the Committee on 
Agriculture for legislation related to crop insurance or other 
income support measures. The adjustment is at the option of the 
chairman, but must be in the amount of budget authority and 
resulting outlays provided by the bill, but may not exceed 
$1.355 billion in budget authority and $595 million in outlays 
in fiscal year 2001, and $8.539 billion in budget authority and 
$7.223 billion in outlays over the 5-year period. The committee 
notes that a crop insurance bill, H.R. 2559, passed the House 
last year with a comparable adjustment in the fiscal year 2000 
budget resolution (H. Con. Res 68) and has yet to be taken up 
by the Senate.
      Section 13 sets forth the procedures for making 
adjustments pursuant to the reserve funds. Subsections (a)(1) 
and (2) provide that the adjustments are made only during the 
interval that the legislation is under consideration and do not 
take effect until the legislation is enacted. The treatment of 
these reserve funds is consistent with the treatment of 
adjustments for emergencies and other programs and initiatives 
under section 314 of the Budget Act.
      Subsection (a)(3) provides that in order to make the 
adjustments for the reserve funds, the chairman must insert 
appropriate language in the Congressional Record.
      Subsection (b) clarifies that any adjustments made under 
any of the reserve funds in the resolution have the same effect 
as if they were part of the original levels set forth in 
section 3. In other words, the adjusted levels, after they are 
made, are used to enforce points of order against legislation 
that is inconsistent with the budget resolution's allocations 
and aggregates.
      Subsection (c) clarifies that the Committee on the Budget 
determines the estimates used to enforce points of order, as is 
the case for enforcing budget-related points of order pursuant 
to section 312 of the Budget Act.
Senate amendment
      Section 202: Reserve Fund for Medicare. The Senate 
amendment contains language in section 202 establishing a two-
part reserve fund for Medicare legislation.
      Subsection (a) permits the chairman of the Committee on 
the Budget to adjust the section 302(a) allocation to the 
Committee on Finance, and the aggregates and other 
appropriatebudgetary levels for legislation that provides a Medicare 
prescription drug benefit if the cost of the legislation does not 
exceed $20 billion over the period of fiscal years 2001 through 2003 
and the legislation does not cause an on-budget deficit in any of these 
years.
      Subsection (b) provides that if the Committee on Finance 
fails to report such legislation prior to September 1, 2000, 
the adjustments permitted by subsection (a) shall be made with 
respect to any legislation considered in the Senate containing 
a prescription drug benefit.
      Subsection (c) permits the chairman of the Committee on 
the Budget to adjust the section 302(a) allocation to the 
Committee on Finance and the spending aggregates for 
legislation which provides an additional $20 billion for fiscal 
years 2004 and 2005 if the Committee on Finance reports 
legislation that extends the solvency of the Medicare Hospital 
Insurance trust fund without the use of new subsidies from the 
general fund, without decreasing beneficiaries' access to 
health care, and excludes the cost of extending and modifying 
the prescription drug benefit crafted pursuant to the first 
part of the reserve fund. The Committee assumes that Medicare 
reform efforts will ensure adequate reimbursement for Medicare 
providers. The allocation of this $20 billion cannot cause an 
on-budget deficit in either 2004 or 2005.
      Section 203: Reserve Fund for the Stabilization of 
Payments to Counties in Support of Education. The Senate 
amendment contains language providing a reserve fund that would 
allow the chairman of the Committee on the Budget to adjust the 
section 302(a) allocation to the Energy and Natural Resources 
Committee for legislation providing additional mandatory 
spending for the stabilization of receipt-based payments to 
counties that support school and road systems and also provides 
a portion of those payments toward local investments in Federal 
lands within those counties. Adjustments may also be made for 
amendments that bring the reported legislation into compliance 
with the terms of this reserve fund. The reserve fund requires 
that the committee report this legislation and that the cost 
shall not exceed $200,000,000 in the first year and not more 
than $1,100,000,000 for fiscal years 2001 through 2005.
      Section 204: Reserve Fund for Agriculture. The Senate 
amendment contains language providing a reserve fund that would 
allow the chairman of the Committee on the Budget to adjust the 
section 302 allocation to the Committee on Agriculture, 
Nutrition, and Forestry for legislation providing for 
additional mandatory spending for assistance for producers of 
program crops and specialty crops, enhancement for agriculture 
conservation programs, and perhaps other programs within the 
committee's jurisdiction. The reserve fund can only be 
triggered if the committee reports legislation to the Senate on 
or before June 29, 2000. Adjustments may also be made for 
amendments that bring the reported legislation into compliance 
with the terms of this reserve fund. The cost of such 
legislation shall not exceed $5,500,000,000 for fiscal year 
2000; $1,640,000,000 for fiscal year 2001; and $3,000,000,000 
for fiscal years 2001 through 2005.
      Section 205: Tax Reduction Reserve Fund in the Senate. 
The Senate amendment contains language providing a reserve fund 
that allows the chairman of the Committee on the Budget 
toadjust the spending and revenue aggregates for legislation that 
reduces revenues as long as the legislation does not cause an on-budget 
deficit for the first year or the sum of the 5 years covered by this 
resolution.
      Section 206: Mechanism for Additional Debt Reduction. If 
either or both of the tax reconciliation bills envisioned by 
section 104 of the Senate amendment or the Medicare/
Prescription drug legislation envisioned by section 202 of the 
Senate amendment do not become law (because they are never 
enacted by the Congress or the President vetoes the measures), 
the Conference Agreement contains language which would allow 
the chairman of the Budget Committee to reduce the balances 
available on the Senate's pay-go scorecard and adjust the 
aggregates and committee allocations to prevent these 
``reconciled'' or ``reserved'' amounts from being used for 
anything other than reduction of debt held by the public. In 
addition, the debt held by the public levels shown in section 
101(6) of this resolution will be reduced by those same amounts 
to make clear that these funds are dedicated to debt reduction.
      Section 214: Reserve Fund to Foster the Health of 
Children with Disabilities and the Employment and Independence 
of Their Families. The Senate amendment contains language that 
provides a reserve fund that would allow the chairman of the 
Committee on the Budget to adjust the section 302(a) allocation 
to the Committee on Finance and the spending aggregate for 
legislation which facilitates children with disabilities 
receiving needed health care at home while still allowing their 
families to become or remain employed. The reserve fund can 
only be triggered if the committee reports legislation to the 
Senate. Adjustments may also be made for amendments that bring 
the reported legislation into compliance with the terms of this 
reserve fund. This will permit such legislation to make use of 
any on-budget surpluses. However, the cost of such legislation 
shall not exceed $50,000,000 for fiscal year 2001; and 
$300,000,000 for fiscal years 2001 through 2005.
      Section 216: Reserve Fund for Military Retiree Health 
Care. The Senate amendment contains language providing a 
reserve fund that would allow the chairman of the Committee on 
the Budget to adjust the section 302(a) allocation to the 
Committee on Armed Services, and other budgetary aggregates and 
limits, for legislation that funds improvements to health care 
programs for military retirees and their dependents in the 
fiscal year 2001 Department of Defense authorization 
legislation. The reserve fund can only be triggered if the 
committee reports such legislation to the Senate. The cost of 
such legislation may not cause an on-budget deficit for fiscal 
year 2001 or the sum of fiscal years 2001 through 2005.
      Section 217: Reserve Fund for Early Learning and Parent 
Support Programs. The Senate amendment contains language that 
provides a reserve fund that would allow the chairman of the 
Committee on the Budget in the House and Senate to adjust the 
section 302(a) allocation to the Committee on Education and the 
Workforce of the House of Representatives or the Committee on 
Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions in the Senate, and other 
budgetary aggregates and limits,for legislation that improves 
opportunities at the local level for early learning, brain development, 
and school readiness and offers support programs for their families. 
The cost of such legislation may not cause an on-budget deficit and may 
not exceed $8.5 billion in budget authority for the sum of fiscal years 
2001 through 2005.
Conference agreement
      Section 211 of the Conference Agreement establishes a 
procedure to ensure that if any of the reconciliation bills 
pursuant to sections 103(a) and 104, Medicare reform/
prescription drug bills pursuant to sections 214 and 215, and 
other freestanding tax bills are not enacted into law, then the 
amount of the surplus reserved for these bills will be used to 
reduce debt. This will be displayed by permitting the chairmen 
to reduce the advisory levels of debt held by the public. The 
chairmen of the Budget Committees are authorized to increase 
the revenue aggregates by the difference between the assumed 
tax cut and the amount of any tax cuts actually enacted after 
the date of the adoption of this resolution. In the same 
fashion, each Chairman may reduce the spending aggregates by 
the difference between the amount assumed for Medicare reform/
prescription drugs and the amount of spending provided by any 
such enacted legislation. If any changes in the aggregates are 
made under this section, then the Senate Budget Committee 
chairman is authorized to make the appropriate changes in the 
Senate's PAYGO balances. This section would also reduce any 
adjustment made under section 213 to the extent that the 
adjustments exceed the costs of enacted legislation as of the 
date the Chairmen make the adjustments under this section.
      Section 212 of the Conference Agreement establishes a 
reserve fund to accommodate an additional $25 billion in tax 
relief or debt reduction. This section applies to both the 
House and the Senate. Under this section, the Budget Committee 
chairman of the appropriate House may adjust the revenue 
aggregate by the amount the legislation reduces revenue in 
excess of the reconciled $11.6 billion in fiscal year 2001 and 
$150 billion over 5 years (when all other legislation reducing 
revenues enacted after the adoption of this concurrent 
resolution has been taken into account), but not to exceed the 
$1 billion in fiscal year 2001 and $25 billion in fiscal years 
2001 through 2005. This amount is in addition to any adjustment 
triggered by CBO's update to The Budget and Economic Outlook 
referred to in section 213.
      Section 213 of the Conference Agreement establishes a 
reserve fund to accommodate additional tax relief or debt 
reduction if the estimates of the projected on-budget surplus 
increases. It applies to both the House and the Senate. The 
Budget Committee chairman of each House may increase the 
aggregate level of revenue reduction, and adjust the 
reconciliation instructions accordingly, by an amount not to 
exceed the projected increase in the on-budget surplus as 
estimated in the next update to The Budget and Economic Outlook 
published by the Congressional Budget Office [CBO]. This 
increase is relative to the corresponding levels as reported in 
The Budget and Economic Outlook published by CBO in March 2000 
which underlie this budget resolution. If these additional 
surpluses are not applied to additional tax reduction, thelevel 
of debt held by the public will be automatically reduced. If CBO 
projects an increase in the surplus for fiscal year 2000, this section 
authorizes the House Budget chairman to reduce the debt levels and 
direct the Committee on Ways and Means to report a bill reducing debt 
held by the public by the amount of the increase in the surplus for 
that fiscal year.
      Section 214 of the Conference Agreement establishes a 
reserve fund for legislation that provides for Medicare reform 
and prescription drug coverage. This reserve fund applies only 
in the House. The Budget Committee chairman is authorized to 
increase the appropriate allocations of budget authority and 
outlays to the House Ways and Means Committee and the House 
Commerce Committee, and aggregates if necessary, by the amount 
of budget authority and outlays provided by the measure for the 
specified purpose. In no event may the amount of the adjustment 
exceed $2.0 billion in budget authority and outlays in fiscal 
year 2001 and $40 billion in budget authority and outlays over 
5 years.
      Section 215 of the Conference Agreement establishes a 
reserve fund for Medicare in the Senate. It contains language 
which establishes a two-part reserve fund for Medicare 
legislation.
      Subsection (a) permits the chairman of the Committee on 
the Budget to adjust the section 302(a) allocation to the 
Committee on Finance, and the aggregates and other appropriate 
budgetary levels for legislation which provides a Medicare 
prescription drug benefit if the cost of the legislation does 
not exceed $20 billion over the period of fiscal years 2001 
through 2005 and the legislation does not cause an on-budget 
deficit in any of these years.
      Subsection (b) permits the chairman of the Committee on 
the Budget to adjust the section 302(a) allocation to the 
Committee on Finance and other aggregates for legislation which 
provides $40 billion for fiscal years 2001 through 2005 if the 
Committee on Finance reports legislation which improves the 
solvency of the Medicare program without the use of new 
subsidies from the general fund and improves access to 
prescription drugs (or continues access provided under 
subsection (a)). The amount provided under this subsection will 
be reduced by any amount provided for legislation considered in 
the Senate under subsection (a). The allocation of this $40 
billion may not cause an on-budget deficit in any fiscal year.
      Section 216 of the Conference Agreement establishes a 
reserve fund for legislation that provides assistance for 
producers of program and specialty crops. It applies in both 
the House and the Senate. The Budget Committee chairman of the 
appropriate House is authorized to increase the 302(a) 
allocations for fiscal years 2000 and 2001 for the House 
Committee on Agriculture and the Senate Committee on 
Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry by the amount of budget 
authority and resulting outlays provided by the measure for the 
specified purpose. In no event may the amount of the adjustment 
exceed $5.5 billion in budget authority and outlays in fiscal 
year 2000, and 1.64 billion in budget authority and outlays in 
fiscal year 2001. Theconferees have based this reserve fund on 
the assumption that it will be considered as part of a freestanding 
bill reported by the authorizing committees rather than incorporated 
into an appropriations measure.
      Section 217 of the Conference Agreement establishes a 
reserve fund to accommodate legislation for health programs 
designed to allow children with disabilities to obtain access 
to home health services and enable their parents to seek 
employment. This reserve fund applies to both the House and 
Senate. The Budget Committee chairman of the appropriate House 
may make adjustments to the 302(a) allocations of the House 
Commerce Committee and the Senate Finance Committee by the 
amount of budget authority and outlays provided by the bill. In 
no event may the amount of the adjustment exceed $25 million in 
budget authority and outlays in fiscal year 2001 and $150 
million in budget authority and outlays over 5 years.
      Section 218 of the Conference Agreement establishes a 
reserve fund for legislation that improves military retiree 
health care programs. It applies in both the House and Senate. 
The Budget Committee chairman of the appropriate House may 
increase the 302(a) allocations for the House and Senate 
Committees on Armed Services by the amount of budget authority 
and outlays provided by the bill for the specified purpose. In 
no event may the amount of the adjustment exceed $50 million in 
budget authority and outlays in fiscal year 2001 and $400 
million in budget authority and outlays over 5 years. In 
addition, the chairman may not make an adjustment if the 
enactment of the legislation would cause an on-budget deficit 
in fiscal year 2001 or the 5 year period.
      Section 219 of the Conference Agreement establishes a new 
reserve fund for legislation that accelerates enrollment of 
uninsured children in Medicaid and the State Children's Health 
Insurance Programs or provides Medicaid coverage for women 
diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer through the screening 
programs of the Centers for Disease Control. It applies in both 
the House and the Senate. The Budget Committee chairman of the 
appropriate House is authorized to increase the 302(a) 
allocations to the House Commerce Committee and the Senate 
Finance Committee by the amount of budget authority and outlays 
provided by the bill. In no event may the amount of the 
adjustment exceed $50 million in budget authority and outlays 
for fiscal year 2001 and $250 million in budget authority and 
outlays for the 5 year period.
      Section 220 of the Conference Agreement establishes a 
reserve fund for legislation providing for stabilization of 
payments to counties in support of education. It applies in 
both the House and Senate. The Budget Committee chairman of the 
appropriate House may increase the 302(a) allocations for the 
House Committees on Agriculture and Resources and the Senate 
Committee on Energy and Natural Resources by the amount of 
budget authority and outlays provided by the bill for the 
specified purpose. In no event may the amount of the adjustment 
exceed $200 million in budget authority and outlays in fiscal 
year 2001 and $1.1 billion in budget authority and outlays over 
5 years. In addition, the section requires that, for the 
adjustment to bemade, the legislation must provide for the 
stabilization of receipt-based payments to counties that support school 
and road systems and must also provide for a portion of those payments 
to be dedicated toward local investments in Federal lands within the 
counties.
      Section 221 of the Conference Agreement is similar to the 
language included in the Senate amendment which provides for a 
reserve fund that allows the Senate chairman of the Committee 
on the Budget to adjust the spending and revenue aggregate for 
legislation that reduces revenues as long as the legislation 
does not cause an on-budget deficit for the first year or the 
sum of the 5 years covered by this resolution. The House has 
standing authority to consider such legislation under Section 
302(g)(1)(B) of the Budget Act.
      Section 222 of the Conference Agreement sets forth the 
procedures by which the Budget Committee chairman may make the 
adjustments for the reserve funds established under this 
subtitle. Subsection (a) clarifies that the adjustments are 
made only when the measure is considered and become permanent 
only when the measure is enacted. Subsection (b) provides that 
the adjusted levels are used to enforce subsequent budget-
related points of order. Subsection (c) reiterates the role of 
the Budget Committee in advising the presiding officer of the 
House regarding the budgetary effects of legislation subject to 
such points of order.

                        MISCELLANEOUS PROVISIONS

      Under Section 301(b)(4) of the Budget Act and its 
standing authority under the U.S. Constitution, the budget 
resolution includes enforcement-related provisions other than 
points of order and reserve funds. These provisions include 
various directives relating to scoring conventions and a 
reaffirmation of the rule making authority of the U.S. 
Congress.
House resolution
      No house provisions are included in this section.
Senate amendment
      Section 211: Prohibition on the use of Federal Reserve 
Surpluses. The Senate amendment contains language that is 
designed to ensure that transfers from non-budgetary 
governmental entities such as the Federal Reserve banks shall 
not be used to offset increased on-budget spending when such 
transfers produce no real budgetary effects. It has long been 
the view of the Committee on the Budget that transfers of 
Federal Reserve surpluses to the Treasury are not valid offsets 
for increased spending. Nonetheless, such transfers have been 
legislated in the past--as recently as the fall of 1999. The 
purpose of this section is to establish a scoring rule to 
makeclear that such transfers will not be taken into account when 
determining compliance with the various Budget Act and Senate pay-go 
points of order.
      Section 212: Reaffirming the Prohibition on the use of 
Revenue Offsets for Discretionary Spending. The Senate 
amendment contains language that is intended to emphasize the 
longstanding view of the Congressional Budget Committees and 
the Congressional Budget Office that changes in revenues shall 
not be scored in appropriations legislation. This means that 
tax increases shall not be used as offsets for increased 
discretionary spending. The Committee on the Budget finds it 
necessary to set this forth in this budget resolution in 
response to the President once again asserting in his fiscal 
year 2001 budget that an increase in tobacco taxes can be used 
to offset huge increases in discretionary spending.
      Section 213: Application and Effect of Changes in 
Allocations and Aggregates. The Senate amendment contains 
language that is similar to the language found in section 208 
of the Conference Agreement on the fiscal year 2000 budget 
resolution. This language clarifies how and when any 
adjustments to the allocations or aggregates or pay-go balances 
permitted by the various reserve funds contained in the 
Conference Agreement may be made.
      Section 215: Exercise of Rule Making Powers. The Senate 
amendment contains language regarding the rule making authority 
of each of the Houses of Congress.
Conference agreement
      Section 231 of the Conference Agreement, which applies to 
the House only, reflects the Senate treatment for function 650, 
which consists of on-budget payments by the Treasury Department 
to the OASDI Trust Funds for income taxes on Social Security 
benefits. In a significant departure from the House bill and 
from conference reports since 1991, the function 650 levels do 
not include the administrative expenses that were included in 
the House resolution and in recent conference reports in 
previous years. These expenses were not included in the 
function out of a belated recognition that such expenses were 
taken off budget by the Budget Enforcement Act [BEA] of 1990. 
Section 13301 of that Act provided, in part:

            (A) Exclusion of social security from all 
        budgets.--Notwithstanding any other provision of law, 
        the receipts and disbursements of the Federal Old-Age 
        and Survivors Insurance Trust Fund and the Disability 
        Insurance Trust Fund shall not be counted as new budget 
        authority, outlays, receipts, or deficit or surplus for 
        purposes of * * * (2) the congressional budget.

      Nevertheless, Congress continued to include 
administrative expenses for Social Security in function 650 
because they were clearly discretionary--that is, they are 
controlled through the annual appropriations process. Because 
section 302(a) of the Budget Act provides that theallocation 
must be ``consistent'' with the functional levels and aggregates, it 
was originally considered necessary to include these amounts in the 
function 650 levels and the aggregate.
      The other reason for changing the treatment of Social 
Security is that the Congressional Budget Office [CBO] already 
excludes Social Security administrative expenses from its 
budgetary projections of on-budget revenue, spending, and 
surplus or deficit levels. As a consequence, CBO projections 
have not been comparable to the levels underlying the House and 
Senate budget resolutions. This has caused confusion among 
Members of Congress who have sought to make comparisons between 
CBO's projections and the levels set forth in the budget 
resolution.
      To comply with the BEA and standardize congressional 
scoring for Social Security, section 231 of the conference 
report provides clear authority to include administrative 
amounts in the 302(a) allocation to the Appropriations 
Committee, even though such levels will no longer be included 
in the on-budget totals and function levels.
      Subsection (b) clarifies that any determination under 
section 302(f) of the Budget Act include any amounts provided 
in the measure for discretionary administrative expenses of the 
Social Security Administration.
      Section 232 of the Conference Agreement retains the 
language of section 211 of the Senate amendment. It contains 
language that is designed to ensure that transfers from non-
budgetary governmental entities such as the Federal Reserve 
banks shall not be used to offset increased on-budget spending 
when such transfers produce no real budgetary effects. It has 
long been the view of the Committee on the Budget that 
transfers of Federal Reserve surpluses to the Treasury are not 
valid offsets for increased spending. Nonetheless, such 
transfers have been legislated in the past--as recently as the 
fall of 1999. The purpose of this section is to establish a 
scoring rule to make clear that such transfers will not be 
taken into account when determining compliance with the various 
Budget Act and Senate pay-go points of order.
      Section 233 of the Conference Agreement is similar to 
section 212 of the Senate amendment. It contains language that 
is intended to emphasize the longstanding view of the 
congressional Budget Committees and the Congressional Budget 
Office that changes in revenues included in appropriations 
legislation shall nonetheless be scored on the PAYGO scorecard. 
This means that tax increases shall not be used as offsets for 
increased discretionary spending. The Committees on the Budget 
find it necessary to set this forth in this budget resolution 
in response to the President once again asserting in his fiscal 
year 2001 budget that an increase in taxes can be used to 
offset increases in discretionary spending.
      Section 234 of the Conference Agreement adopts the 
language contained in section 215 of the Senate amendment. This 
provision restates that the rules set forth in this budget 
resolution are considered a part of the rules of each House or 
the House to which they specifically apply. This section 
further recognizes the constitutional right of each House to 
change provisions of the resolution through subsequent rule 
making.

                          Economic Assumptions

      Section 301(g)(2) of the Congressional Budget Act 
requires that the joint explanatory statement accompanying a 
conference report on a budget resolution set forth the common 
economic assumptions upon which the joint statement and 
conference report are based. The conference agreement is built 
on the economic assumptions developed by the Congressional 
Budget Office [CBO] and presented in CBO's The Budget and 
Economic Outlook: Fiscal Years 2001-2010.
      House Resolution.--CBO's economic assumptions were used.
      Senate Amendment.--CBO's economic assumptions were used.
      Conference Agreement.--CBO's economic assumptions were 
used.
