          Mr. Cochran, from the Committee on Appropriations, 
                        submitted the following

                                 REPORT

    The Committee on Appropriations submits the following 
report further revising the section 302(b) allocation to its 
subcommittees for fiscal year 2015 set forth in Senate Report 
113-163 (May 22, 2014), revised in Senate Report 113-193 (June 
17, 2014), and further revised in Senate Report 113-222 (July 
29, 2014), Senate Report 113-241 (August 5, 2014), and Senate 
Report 113-312 (December 12, 2014).
    Section 302(e) of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974, as 
amended, provides that at any time after a committee reports 
its allocations such committee may report to its House an 
alteration of such allocations. This report is submitted 
pursuant to this section.
    The Budget Act requires that as soon as practicable after a 
concurrent resolution on the budget is agreed to, the Committee 
on Appropriations shall submit to the Senate a report 
subdividing among its subcommittees the new budget authority 
and total outlays allocated to the Committee in the joint 
explanatory statement accompanying the conference report on 
such a resolution. Section 116 of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 
2013 (Public Law 113-67) provides for the chairman of the 
Committee on the Budget to file an allocation consistent with 
the terms of the act to serve as a section 302(a) allocation 
for purposes of budget enforcement in the Senate. The 
allocation was filed by the chairman of the Budget Committee on 
May 5, 2014.
    On May 22, 2014, the Committee on Appropriations filed an 
initial allocation to its subcommittees pursuant to its section 
302(a) allocation.
    On June 16, 2014, the Committee on the Budget filed a 
revised 302(a) allocation for the Committee (Congressional 
Record pp. S3680-3681) reflecting permissible increases in the 
fiscal year 2015 discretionary allocation. These increases 
reflect $100,000,000 in nonsecurity budget authority designated 
for disaster relief, plus associated outlays.
    On July 29, 2014, the Committee on the Budget filed a 
further revised 302(a) allocation for the Committee 
(Congressional Record pp. S5042-5043) reflecting permissible 
increases in the fiscal year 2015 discretionary allocation. 
These increases reflect $6,438,000,000 in nonsecurity budget 
authority designated for disaster relief, plus associated 
outlays and $58,579,000,000 in security budget authority and 
$9,978,000,000 in nonsecurity budget authority designated for 
overseas contingency operations, plus associated outlays.
    On August 5, 2014, the Committee on the Budget filed a 
further revised 302(a) allocation for the Committee 
(Congressional Record pp. S5331-5332) reflecting permissible 
increases in the fiscal year 2015 discretionary allocation. 
These increases reflect $75,000,000 in security outlays 
designated as an emergency requirement.
    On December 12, 2014, the Committee on the Budget filed a 
further revised 302(a) allocation for the Committee reflecting 
permissible adjustments to the fiscal year 2015 discretionary 
allocation. The revised 302(a) allocation reflects an increase 
of $5,855,000,000 in security budget authority and a reduction 
of $720,000,000 in nonsecurity budget authority designated for 
overseas contingency operations, plus associated outlays and a 
reduction of $9,000,000 in nonsecurity budget authority 
designated for disaster relief, plus associated outlays. In 
addition, the revised 302(a) allocation reflects an increase of 
$1,484,000,000 in nonsecurity budget authority reflecting funds 
provided for continuing disability reviews and redeterminations 
and for health care fraud and abuse control, plus associated 
outlays and an increase of $112,000,000 in security budget 
authority and $5,293,000,000 in nonsecurity budget authority 
designated as an emergency requirement, plus associated 
outlays.
    The further revised allocations to subcommittees for 2015 
are set forth below:
