            (1) The chairman of the Committee on the Budget shall

        order, subject to the terms set forth in this section, for one

        of fiscal years, as applicable, designated as emergencies in 
        the measure referred to in this section, in excess of the 
        applicable amount remaining in the reserve fund.
            (3) The motion set forth in paragraph (2) shall be open for 
        debate and amendment, but any amendment offered thereto is only 
        in order if limited to amending the amounts for fiscal year 
        2007 or for the period of fiscal years 2007 through 2011.
            (4) Except as provided by paragraph (5), the chairman of 
        the Committee on the Budget may not make any adjustments under 
        this title unless or until the committee filing a report or 
        joint statement of managers on a conference report on a measure 
        including an emergency designation fulfills the terms set forth 
        in section 504.
            (5) The chairman of the Committee on the Budget shall make 
        any adjustments he deems necessary under this title if he

        circumstances referred to in rule 3 of the rules of the 
        committee are met and the committee cannot convene to consider 
        the motion referred to in this section in a timely fashion.
    (c) Application of Adjustments.--The adjustments made pursuant to 
subsection (a) or (b) shall--
            (1) apply while that bill, joint resolution, conference 
        report or amendement is under consideration;
            (2) take effect upon the enactment of that legislation; and
            (3) be published in the Congressional Record as soon as 
        practicable.

resolution, the chairman of the Committee on the Budget shall, after

SEC. 504. COMMITTEE NOTIFICATION OF EMERGENCY LEGISLATION.

    (a) Committee Notification.--Whenever a committee of the House 
(including a committee of conference) reports any bill or joint 
resolution that includes a provision designated as an emergency

                      TITLE VI--SENSE OF CONGRESS

SEC. 601. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON LONG-TERM BUDGETING.

    It is the sense of Congress that the determination of the 
congressional budget for the United States Government and the 
President's budget request should include consideration of the 
Financial Report of the United States Government, especially its 
information regarding the Government's net operating cost, financial 
position, and long-term liabilities.

SEC. 602. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON CLOSING THE TAX GAP TO REDUCE THE 
              DEFICIT.

    It is the sense of Congress that any revenues increases achieved 
through recovery of taxes legally owed to the U.S. Treasury but not 
actually paid, the so-called ``tax gap'', shall be dedicated entirely 
to reducing the deficit and the accumulated debt, and not to financing 
additional spending.
