     thereto, amendment between the Houses in relation thereto, or 
     conference report thereon. If adjustments to the baseline are 
     made subsequent to the adoption of this concurrent 
     resolution, then such Chairman shall determine whether to use 
     any of these adjustments when making such estimates.
       (B) Intent.--The authority set forth in subparagraph (A) 
     should only be exercised if the estimates used to determine 
     the compliance of such measures with the budgetary 
     requirements included in this concurrent resolution are 
     inaccurate because adjustments made to the baseline are 
     inconsistent with the assumptions underlying the budgetary 
     levels set forth in this concurrent resolution. Such 
     inaccurate adjustments made after the adoption of this 
     concurrent resolution may include selected adjustments for 
     rulemaking, judicial actions, adjudication, and 
     interpretative rules that have major budgetary effects and 
     are inconsistent with the assumptions underlying the 
     budgetary levels set forth in this concurrent resolution.
       (C) Congressional budget office estimates.--Upon the 
     request of the Chairman of the Committee on the Budget of the 
     House of Representatives, the Congressional Budget Office 
     shall prepare for any measure an estimate based on the 
     baseline determination made by such Chairman pursuant to 
     subparagraph (A).
       (2) Repeal of the president's health care law through 
     reconciliation.--In the House of Representatives, in 
     preparing their submissions under subsection (a) to the 
     Committee on the Budget of the House of Representatives, the 
     committees named in subsection (a) shall--
       (A) note the policies discussed in title VI that repeal the 
     Affordable Care Act and the health care related provisions of 
     the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010; and
       (B) determine the most effective methods by which the 
     health care laws referred to in subparagraph (A) shall be 
     repealed in their entirety.
       (3) Revision of budgetary levels.--
       (A) In general.--Upon the submission of a reconciliation 
     recommendation to the House of Representatives or the 
     Committee on the Budget of the House of Representatives or 
     the submission of a conference report to the House of 
     Representatives pursuant to this section, in which a 
     committee is deemed to have complied with its directive by 
     virtue of section 310(c) of the Congressional Budget Act of 
     1974 (2 U.S.C. 641(c)), the Chairman of the Committee on the 
     Budget of the House of Representatives may file with the 
     House of Representatives appropriately revised allocations, 
     aggregates, and functional levels.
       (B) Revision.--Allocations and aggregates revised pursuant 
     to this paragraph shall be considered to be allocations and 
     aggregates established by this concurrent resolution on the 
     budget pursuant to section 301 of the Congressional Budget 
     Act of 1974 (2 U.S.C. 632).

 TITLE V--ESTIMATES OF DIRECT SPENDING IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

     SEC. 5001. DIRECT SPENDING.

       (a) Means-Tested Direct Spending.--
       (1) Findings.--The House of Representatives finds the 
     following:
       (A) For means-tested direct spending, the average rate of 
     growth in the total level of outlays during the 10-year 
     period preceding fiscal year 2016 is 6.8 percent.
       (B) For means-tested direct spending, the estimated average 
     rate of growth in the total level of outlays during the 10-
     year period beginning with fiscal year 2016 is 4.6 percent 
     under current law.
       (2) Proposed reforms.--The following reforms are proposed 
     under this concurrent resolution by the House of 
     Representatives for means-tested direct spending:
       (A) In 1996, a Republican Congress and a Democratic 
     President reformed welfare by limiting the duration of 
     benefits, giving States more control over the program, and 
     helping recipients find work. In the 5 years following 
     passage, child-poverty rates fell, welfare caseloads fell, 
     and workers' wages increased. This budget assumes the 
     enactment of proposals to reduce poverty and increase 
     opportunity and upward mobility for struggling Americans on 
     the road to personal and financial independence. Based on the 
     successful welfare reforms of the 1990s, these proposals 
     would improve work requirements and provide flexible funding 
     for States to help those most in need find gainful 
     employment, escape poverty, and move up the economic ladder.
       (B) For Medicaid, this budget is predicated on a framework 
     proposed by the chairmen of the committees of jurisdiction of 
     the House of Representatives and the Senate, to modernize and 
     improve the program while increasing State flexibility and 
     protecting the most vulnerable populations. This budget also 
     assumes the repeal of the Medicaid expansions in the 
     President's health care law.
       (b) Nonmeans-Tested Direct Spending.--
       (1) Findings.--The House of Representatives finds the 
     following:
       (A) For nonmeans-tested direct spending, the average rate 
     of growth in the total level of outlays during the 10-year 
     period preceding fiscal year 2016 is 5.4 percent.
       (B) For nonmeans-tested direct spending, the estimated 
     average rate of growth in the total level of outlays during 
     the 10-year period beginning with fiscal year 2016 is 5.5 
     percent under current law.
       (2) Medicare reforms.--For Medicare, this budget advances 
     policies to put seniors, not the Federal Government, in 
     control of their health care decisions. Putting seniors in 
     charge of how their health care dollars are spent will 
     encourage providers to compete against each other on price 
     and quality. Improvements to Medicare are necessary to extend 
     the life of the Federal Hospital Insurance Trust Fund and 
     protect the program for future generations.

                      TITLE VI--POLICY STATEMENTS

              Subtitle A--Policy Statements in Both Houses

     SEC. 6101. POLICY STATEMENT ON BALANCED BUDGET AMENDMENT.

       It is the policy of this concurrent resolution that 
     Congress should pass, and send to the States for their 
     approval, a joint resolution amending the Constitution of the 
     United States to require an annual balanced Federal budget.

     SEC. 6102. POLICY STATEMENT ON SOCIAL SECURITY.

       It is the policy of this concurrent resolution that the 
     President and Congress should work together on a bipartisan 
     basis to preserve Social Security for current and future 
     generations. To achieve that goal--
       (1) Congress should enact legislation to prevent the near-
     term insolvency of the Disability Insurance program, improve 
     the administration

[[Page H2538]]

     and coordination of benefits, and increase employment 
     opportunities for disabled workers; and
       (2) the President should submit legislation to Congress 
     addressing the long-term insolvency of both the Old-Age and 
     Survivors Insurance program and the Disability Insurance 
     program, and such legislation should achieve a sustainable 
     annual cash-flow balance between taxes and benefits over the 
     foreseeable future, rather than temporarily increasing and 
     then depleting the balance of Government securities held by 
     each program's trust fund.

      Subtitle B--Policy Statement in the House of Representatives

     SEC. 6201. POLICY STATEMENT ON BUDGET PROCESS AND BASELINE 
                   REFORM.

       (a) Findings.--
       (1) In 1974, after more than 50 years of executive 
     dominance over fiscal policy, Congress acted to reassert its 
     ``power of the purse'', and passed the Congressional Budget 
     and Impoundment Control Act.
       (2) The measure explicitly sought to establish 
     congressional control over the budget process, to provide for 
     annual congressional determination of the appropriate level 
     of taxes and spending, to set important national budget 
     priorities, and to find ways in which Members of Congress 
     could have access to the most accurate, objective, and 
     highest quality information to assist them in discharging 
     their duties.
       (3) Far from achieving its intended purpose, however, the 
     process has instituted a bias toward higher spending and 
     larger government. The behemoth of the Federal Government has 
     largely been financed through either borrowing or taking ever 
     greater amounts of the national income through high taxation.
       (4) The process does not treat programs and policies 
     consistently and shows a bias toward higher spending and 
     higher taxes.
       (5) It assumes extension of spending programs (of more than 
     $50 million per year) scheduled to expire.
       (6) Yet it does not assume the extension of tax policies in 
     the same way. consequently, extending existing tax policies 
     that may be scheduled to expire is characterized as a new tax 
     reduction, requiring offsets to ``pay for'' merely keeping 
     tax policy the same even though estimating conventions would 
     not require similar treatment of spending programs.
       (7) The original goals set for the congressional process 
     are admirable in their intent, but because the essential 
     mechanisms of the process have remained the same, and 
     ``reforms'' enacted over the past 40 years have largely taken 
     the form of layering greater levels of legal complexity 
     without reforming or reassessing the very fundamental nature 
     of the process.
       (b) Policy Statement.--It is the policy of this concurrent 
     resolution on the budget that as the primary branch of 
     Government, Congress must:
       (1) Restructure the fundamental procedures of budget 
     decision making.
       (2) Reassert Congress's ``power of the purse'', and 
     reinforce the balance of powers between Congress and the 
     President, as the 1974 Act intended.
       (3) Create greater incentives for lawmakers to do budgeting 
     as intended by the Congressional Budget Act of 1974, 
     especially adopting a budget resolution every year.
       (4) Encourage more effective control over spending, 
     especially currently uncontrolled direct spending.
       (5) Consider innovative fiscal tools such as: zero based 
     budgeting, which would require a department or agency to 
     justify its budget as if it were a new expenditure; and 
     direct spending caps to enhance oversight of automatic pilot 
     spending that increases each year without congressional 
     approval.
       (6) Promote efficient and timely budget actions, so that 
     lawmakers complete their budget actions by the time the new 
     fiscal year begins.
       (7) Provide access to the best analysis of economic 
     conditions available and increase awareness of how fiscal 
     policy directly impacts overall economic growth and job 
     creation.
       (8) Remove layers of complexity that have complicated the 
     procedures designed in 1974, and made budgeting more arcane 
     and opaque.
       (9) Remove existing biases that favor higher spending.
       (10) Include procedures by which current tax laws may be 
     extended and treated on a basis that is not different from 
     the extension of entitlement programs.
       (c) Budget Process Reform.--Comprehensive budget process 
     reform should also remove the bias in the baseline against 
     the extension of current tax laws in the following ways:
       (1) Permanent extension of tax laws should not be used as a 
     means to increase taxes on other taxpayers.
       (2) For those expiring tax provisions that are proposed to 
     be permanently extended, Congress should use a more realistic 
     baseline that does not require them to be offset.
       (3) Tax-reform legislation should not include tax increases 
     just to offset the extension of current tax laws.
       (d) Legislation.--The Committee on the Budget of the House 
     of Representatives intends to draft legislation during the 
     114th Congress that will rewrite the Congressional Budget and 
     Impoundment Control Act of 1974 to fulfill the goals of 
     making the congressional budget process more effective in 
     ensuring taxpayers' dollars are spent wisely and efficiently.

     SEC. 6202. POLICY STATEMENT ON ECONOMIC GROWTH AND JOB 
                   CREATION.

       (a) Findings.--The House of Representatives finds the 
     following:
       (1) Although the United States economy technically emerged 
     from recession more than 5 years ago, the subsequent recovery 
     has felt more like a malaise than a rebound. Real gross 
     domestic product GDP growth over the past 5 years has 
     averaged slightly more than 2 percent, well below the 3.2 
     percent historical trend rate of growth in the United States. 
     Although the economy has shown some welcome signs of 
     improvement of late, the Nation remains in the midst of the 
     weakest economic recovery of the modern era.
       (2) Looking ahead, CBO expects the economy to grow by an 
     average of just 2.3 percent over the next 10 years. That 
     level of economic growth is simply unacceptable and 
     insufficient to expand opportunities and the incomes of 
     millions of middle-income Americans.
       (3) Sluggish economic growth has also contributed to the 
     country's fiscal woes. Subpar growth means that revenue 
     levels are lower than they would otherwise be while 
     government spending (e.g. welfare and income-support 
     programs) is higher. Clearly, there is a dire need for 
     policies that will spark higher rates of economic growth and 
     greater, higher-quality job opportunities.
       (4) Although job gains have been trending up of late, other 
     aspects of the labor market remain weak. The labor force 
     participation rate, for instance, is hovering just under 63 
     percent, close to the lowest level since 1978. Long-term 
     unemployment also remains a problem. Of the roughly 8.7 
     million people who are currently unemployed, 2.7 million 
     (more than 30 percent) have been unemployed for more than 6 
     months. Long-term unemployment erodes an individual's job 
     skills and detaches them from job opportunities. It also 
     undermines the long-term productive capacity of the economy.
       (5) Perhaps most important, wage gains and income growth 
     have been subpar for middle-class Americans. Average hourly 
     earnings of private-sector workers have increased by just 1.6 
     percent over the past year. Prior to the recession, average 
     hourly earnings were tracking close to 4 percent. Likewise, 
     average income levels have remained flat in recent years. 
     Real median household income is just under $52,000, one of 
     the lowest levels since 1995.
       (6) The unsustainable fiscal trajectory has cast a shadow 
     on the country's economic outlook. investors and businesses 
     make decisions on a forward-looking basis. they know that 
     today's large debt levels are simply tomorrow's tax hikes, 
     interest rate increases, or inflation and they act 
     accordingly. This debt overhang, and the uncertainty it 
     generates, can weigh on growth, investment, and job creation.
       (7) Nearly all economists, including those at the CBO, 
     conclude that reducing budget deficits (thereby bending the 
     curve on debt levels is a net positive for economic growth 
     over time. The logic is that deficit reduction creates long-
     term economic benefits because it increases the pool of 
     national savings and boosts investment, thereby raising 
     economic growth and job creation.
       (8) CBO analyzed the House Republican fiscal year 2016 
     budget resolution and found it would increase real output per 
     capita (a proxy for a country's standard of living) by about 
     $1,000 in 2025 and roughly $5,000 by 2040 relative to the 
     baseline path. That means more income and greater prosperity 
     for all Americans.
       (9) In contrast, if the Government remains on the current 
     fiscal path, future generations will face ever-higher debt 
     service costs, a decline in national savings, and a 
     ``crowding out'' of private investment. This dynamic will 
     eventually lead to a decline in economic output and a 
     diminution in our country's standard of living.
       (10) The key economic challenge is determining how to 
     expand the economic pie, not how best to divide up and re-
     distribute a shrinking pie.
       (11) A stronger economy is vital to lowering deficit levels 
     and eventually balancing the budget. According to CBO, if 
     annual real GDP growth is just 0.1 percentage point higher 
     over the budget window, deficits would be reduced by $326 
     billion.
       (12) This budget resolution therefore embraces pro-growth 
     policies, such as fundamental tax reform, that will help 
     foster a stronger economy, greater opportunities and more job 
     creation.
       (b) Policy on Economic Growth and Job Creation.--In the 
     House of Representatives, it is the policy of this concurrent 
     resolution to promote faster economic growth and job 
     creation. By putting the budget on a sustainable path, this 
     concurrent resolution ends the debt-fueled uncertainty 
     holding back job creators. Reforms to the tax code will put 
     American businesses and workers in a better position to 
     compete and thrive in the 21st century global economy. This 
     concurrent resolution targets the regulatory red tape and 
     cronyism that stack the deck in favor of special interests. 
     All of the reforms in this concurrent resolution serve as 
     means to the larger end of helping the economy grow and 
     expanding opportunity for all Americans.

     SEC. 6203. POLICY STATEMENT ON TAX REFORM.

       (a) Findings.--The House of Representatives finds the 
     following:
       (1) A world-class tax system should be simple, fair, and 
     promote (rather than impede) economic growth. The United 
     States tax code fails on all three counts: It is notoriously 
     complex, patently unfair, and highly inefficient. The tax 
     code's complexity distorts decisions to work, save, and 
     invest, which leads to slower economic growth, lower wages, 
     and less job creation.
       (2) Over the past decade alone, there have been 4,107 
     changes to the tax code, more than one per day. Many of the 
     major changes over the years have involved carving out 
     special preferences, exclusions, or deductions for various 
     activities or groups. These loopholes add up to more than $1 
     trillion per year and make the code unfair, inefficient, and 
     highly complex.
       (3) In addition, these tax preferences are 
     disproportionately used by upper-income individuals.
       (4) The large amount of tax preferences that pervade the 
     code end up narrowing the tax base. A narrow tax base, in 
     turn, requires much

[[Page H2539]]

     higher tax rates to raise a given amount of revenue.
       (5) It is estimated that American taxpayers end up spending 
     $160 billion and roughly 6 billion hours a year complying 
     with the tax code waste of time and resources that could be 
     used in more productive activities.
       (6) Standard economic theory shows that high marginal tax 
     rates dampen the incentives to work, save, and invest, which 
     reduces economic output and job creation. Lower economic 
     output, in turn, mutes the intended revenue gain from higher 
     marginal tax rates.
       (7) Roughly half of United States active business income 
     and half of private sector employment are derived from 
     business entities (such as partnerships, S corporations, and 
     sole proprietorships) that are taxed on a ``pass-through'' 
     basis, meaning the income flows through to the tax returns of 
     the individual owners and is taxed at the individual rate 
     structure rather than at the corporate rate. Small 
     businesses, in particular, tend to choose this form for 
     Federal tax purposes, and the top Federal rate on such small 
     business income can reach nearly 45 percent. For these 
     reasons, sound economic policy requires lowering marginal 
     rates on these pass-through entities.
       (8) The United States corporate income tax rate (including 
     Federal, State, and local taxes) sums to slightly more than 
     39 percent, the highest rate in the industrialized world. Tax 
     rates this high suppress wages and discourage investment and 
     job creation, distort business activity, and put American 
     businesses at a competitive disadvantage with foreign 
     competitors.
       (9) By deterring potential investment, the United States 
     corporate tax restrains economic growth and job creation. The 
     United States tax rate differential with other countries also 
     fosters a variety of complicated multinational corporate 
     behaviors intended to avoid the tax, which have the effect of 
     moving the tax base offshore, destroying American jobs, and 
     decreasing corporate revenue.
       (10) The ``worldwide'' structure of United States 
     international taxation essentially taxes earnings of United 
     States firms twice, putting them at a significant competitive 
     disadvantage with competitors with more competitive 
     international tax systems.
       (11) Reforming the United States tax code to a more 
     competitive international system would boost the 
     competitiveness of United States companies operating abroad 
     and it would also greatly reduce tax avoidance.
       (12) The tax code imposes costs on American workers through 
     lower wages, on consumers in higher prices, and on investors 
     in diminished returns.
       (13) Revenues have averaged about 17.4 percent of the 
     economy throughout modern American history. Revenues rise 
     above this level under current law to 18.3 percent of the 
     economy by the end of the 10-year budget window.
       (14) Attempting to raise revenue through new tax increases 
     to meet out-of-control spending would sink the economy and 
     Americans' ability to save for their retirement and their 
     children's education.
       (15) This concurrent resolution also rejects the idea of 
     instituting a carbon tax in the United States, which some 
     have offered as a new source of revenue. Such a plan would 
     damage the economy, cost jobs, and raise prices on American 
     consumers.
       (16) Closing tax loopholes to fund spending does not 
     constitute fundamental tax reform.
       (17) The goal of tax reform should be to curb or eliminate 
     loopholes and use those savings to lower tax rates across the 
     board not to fund more wasteful Government spending. 
     Washington has a spending problem, not a revenue problem.
       (18) Many economists believe that fundamental tax reform 
     (i.e. a broader tax base and lower tax rates) would lead to 
     greater labor supply and increased investment, which, over 
     time, would have a positive impact on total national output.
       (19) Heretofore, the congressional scorekeepers the 
     Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and the Joint Committee on 
     Taxation (JCT).
       (20) Static scoring implicitly assumes that the size of the 
     economy (and therefore key economic variables such as labor 
     supply and investment) remains fixed throughout the 
     considered budget horizon. This is an abstraction from 
     reality.
       (21) A new House of Representatives rule was adopted at the 
     beginning of the 114th Congress to help correct this problem. 
     This rule requires CBO and JCT to incorporate the 
     macroeconomic effects of major legislation into their 
     official cost estimates.
       (22) This rule seeks to bridge the divide between static 
     estimates and scoring that incorporates economic feedback 
     effects by providing policymakers with a greater amount of 
     information about the likely economic impact of policies 
     under their consideration while at the same time preserving 
     traditional scoring methods and reporting conventions.
       (b) Policy on Tax Reform.--In the House of Representatives, 
     it is the policy of this concurrent resolution that Congress 
     should enact legislation that provides for a comprehensive 
     reform of the United States tax code to promote economic 
     growth, create American jobs, increase wages, and benefit 
     American consumers, investors, and workers through 
     fundamental tax reform that--
       (1) simplifies the tax code to make it fairer to American 
     families and businesses and reduces the amount of time and 
     resources necessary to comply with tax laws;
       (2) substantially lowers tax rates for individuals and 
     consolidates the current seven individual income tax brackets 
     into fewer brackets;
       (3) repeals the Alternative Minimum Tax;
       (4) reduces the corporate tax rate; and
       (5) transitions the tax code to a more competitive system 
     of international taxation.

     SEC. 6204. POLICY STATEMENT ON TRADE.

       (a) Findings.--The House of Representatives finds the 
     following:
       (1) Opening foreign markets to American exports is vital to 
     the United States economy and beneficial to American workers 
     and consumers. The Commerce Department estimates that every 
     $1 billion of United States exports supports more than 5,000 
     jobs here at home.
       (2) The United States can increase economic opportunities 
     for American workers and businesses through the expansion of 
     trade, adherence to trade agreement rules by the United 
     States and its trading partners, and the elimination of 
     foreign trade barriers to United States goods and services.
       (3) Trade Promotion Authority is a bipartisan and bicameral 
     effort to strengthen the role of Congress in setting 
     negotiating objectives for trade agreements, to improve 
     consultation with Congress by the Administration, and to 
     provide a clear framework for congressional consideration and 
     implementation of trade agreements.
       (4) Global trade and commerce is not a zero-sum game. The 
     idea that global expansion tends to ``hollow out'' United 
     States operations is incorrect. Foreign-affiliate activity 
     tends to complement, not substitute for, key parent 
     activities in the United States such as employment, worker 
     compensation, and capital investment. When United States 
     headquartered multinationals invest and expand operations 
     abroad it often leads to more jobs and economic growth at 
     home.
       (5) Trade agreements have saved the average American family 
     of four more than $10,000 per year, as a result of lower 
     duties. Trade agreements also lower the cost of manufacturing 
     inputs by removing duties.
       (6) American businesses and workers have shown that, on a 
     level playing field, they can excel and surpass the 
     international competition.
       (7) When negotiating trade agreements, United States laws 
     on Intellectual Property (IP) protection should be used as a 
     benchmark for establishing global IP frameworks. Strong IP 
     protections have contributed significantly to the United 
     States status as a world leader in innovation across sectors, 
     including in the development of life-saving biologic 
     medicines. The data protections afforded to biologics in 
     United States law, including 12 years of data protection, 
     allow continued development of pioneering medicines to 
     benefit patients both in the United States and abroad. To 
     maintain the cycle of innovation and achieve truly 21st 
     century trade agreements, it is vital that our negotiators 
     insist on the highest standards for IP protections.
       (8) The status quo of the current tax code also undermines 
     the competitiveness of United States businesses and costs the 
     United States economy investment and jobs.
       (9) The United States currently has an antiquated system of 
     international taxation whereby United States multinationals 
     operating abroad pay both the foreign-country tax and United 
     States corporate taxes. They are essentially taxed twice. 
     This puts them at an obvious competitive disadvantage. A 
     modern and competitive international tax system would 
     facilitate global commerce for United States multinational 
     companies and would encourage foreign business investment and 
     job creation in the United States.
       (10) The ability to defer United States taxes on their 
     foreign operations, which some erroneously refer to as a 
     ``tax loophole,'' cushions this disadvantage to a certain 
     extent. Eliminating or restricting this provision (and others 
     like it) would harm United States competitiveness.
       (11) This budget resolution advocates fundamental tax 
     reform that would lower the United States corporate rate, now 
     the highest in the industrialized world, and switch to a more 
     competitive system of international taxation. This would make 
     the United States a much more attractive place to invest and 
     station business activity and would chip away at the 
     incentives for United States companies to keep their profits 
     overseas (because the United States corporate rate is so 
     high).
       (b) Policy on Trade.--In the House of Representatives, it 
     is the policy of this concurrent resolution to pursue 
     international trade, global commerce, and a modern and 
     competitive United States international tax system to promote 
     job creation in the United States. The United States should 
     continue to seek increased economic opportunities for 
     American workers and businesses through the expansion of 
     trade opportunities, adherence to trade agreements and rules 
     by the United States and its trading partners, and the 
     elimination of foreign trade barriers to United States goods 
     and services by opening new markets and by enforcing United 
     States rights. To that end, Congress should pass Trade 
     Promotion Authority to strengthen the role of Congress in 
     setting negotiating objectives for trade agreements, to 
     improve consultation with Congress by the Administration, and 
     to provide a clear framework for congressional consideration 
     and implementation of trade agreements.

     SEC. 6205. POLICY STATEMENT ON REPEALING THE PRESIDENT'S 
                   HEALTH CARE LAW AND PROMOTING REAL HEALTH CARE 
                   REFORM.

       (a) Findings.--The House of Representatives finds the 
     following:
       (1) The President's health care law put Washington's 
     priorities first, and not patients'. The Affordable Care Act 
     (ACA) has failed to reduce health care premiums as promised; 
     instead, the law mandated benefits and coverage levels, 
     denying patients the opportunity to choose the type of 
     coverage that best suits their health needs and driving up 
     health coverage costs. A typical family's health care 
     premiums were supposed to decline by $2,500 a year; instead, 
     according to the 2014 Employer Health Benefits Survey, health 
     care premiums have increased by 7 percent for individuals and 
     families since 2012.

[[Page H2540]]

       (2) The President pledged, ``If you like your health care 
     plan, you can keep your health care plan.'' Instead, the 
     nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office now estimates 9 
     million Americans with employment-based health coverage will 
     lose those plans due to the President's health care law, 
     further limiting patient choice.
       (3) Then-Speaker of the House, Pelosi, said that the 
     President's health care law would create 4 million jobs over 
     the life of the law and almost 400,000 jobs immediately. 
     Instead, the Congressional Budget Office estimates that the 
     reduction in hours worked due to Obamacare represents a 
     decline of about 2.0 to 2.5 million full-time equivalent 
     workers, compared with what would have occurred in the 
     absence of the law. The full impact on labor represents a 
     reduction in employment by 1.5 percent to 2.0 percent, while 
     additional studies show less modest results. A recent study 
     by the Mercatus Center at George Mason University estimates 
     that Obamacare will reduce employment by up to 3 percent, or 
     about 4 million full-time equivalent workers.
       (4) The President has charged the Independent Payment 
     Advisory Board, a panel of unelected bureaucrats, with 
     cutting Medicare by an additional $20.9 billion over the next 
     ten years, according to the President's most recent budget.
       (5) Since ACA was signed into law, the administration has 
     repeatedly failed to implement it as written. The President 
     has unilaterally acted to make a total of 28 changes, delays, 
     and exemptions. The President has signed into law another 17 
     changes made by Congress. The Supreme Court struck down the 
     forced expansion of Medicaid; ruled the individual 
     ``mandate'' could only be characterized as a tax to remain 
     constitutional; and rejected the requirement that closely 
     held companies provide health insurance to their employees if 
     doing so violates these companies' religious beliefs. Even 
     now, almost five years after enactment, the Supreme Court 
     continues to evaluate the legality of how the President's 
     administration has implemented the law. All of these changes 
     prove the folly underlying the entire program--health care in 
     the United States cannot be run from a centralized 
     bureaucracy.
       (6) The President's health care law is unaffordable, 
     intrusive, overreaching, destructive, and unworkable. Its 
     complex structure of subsidies, mandates, and penalties 
     perversely impact individuals, married couples, and families. 
     The law should be fully repealed, allowing for real, patient-
     centered health care reform: the development of real health 
     care reforms that puts patients first, that make affordable, 
     quality health care available to all Americans, and that 
     build on the innovation and creativity of all the 
     participants in the health care sector.
       (b) Policy on Promoting Real Health Care Reform.--In the 
     House of Representatives, it is the policy of this concurrent 
     resolution that the President's health care law should be 
     fully repealed and real health care reform promoted in 
     accordance with the following principles:
       (1) In general.--Health care reform should enhance 
     affordability, accessibility, quality, innovation, choices 
     and responsiveness in health care coverage for all Americans, 
     putting patients, families, and doctors in charge, not 
     Washington, DC. These reforms should encourage increased 
     competition and transparency. Under the President's health 
     care law, government controls Americans' health care choices. 
     Under true, patient-centered reform, Americans would.
       (2) Affordability.--Real reform should be centered on 
     ensuring that all Americans, no matter their age, income, or 
     health status, have the ability to afford health care 
     coverage. The health care delivery structure should be 
     improved, and individuals should not be priced out of the 
     health insurance market due to pre-existing conditions, but 
     nationalized health care is not only unnecessary to 
     accomplish this, it undermines the goal. Individuals should 
     be allowed to join together voluntarily to pool risk through 
     mechanisms such as Individual Membership Associations and 
     Small Employer Membership Associations.
       (3) Accessability.--Instead of Washington outlining for 
     Americans the ways they cannot use their health insurance, 
     reforms should make health coverage more portable. 
     Individuals should be able to own their insurance and have it 
     follow them in and out of jobs throughout their career. Small 
     business owners should be permitted to band together across 
     State lines through their membership in bona fide trade or 
     professional associations to purchase health coverage for 
     their families and employees at a low cost. This will 
     increase small businesses' bargaining power, volume 
     discounts, and administrative efficiencies while giving them 
     freedom from State-mandated benefit packages. Also, insurers 
     licensed to sell policies in one State should be permitted to 
     offer them to residents in any other State, and consumers 
     should be permitted to shop for health insurance across State 
     lines, as they are with other insurance products online, by 
     mail, by phone, or in consultation with an insurance agent.
       (4) Quality.--Incentives for providers to deliver high-
     quality, responsive, and coordinated care will promote 
     patient outcomes and drive down health care costs. Likewise, 
     reforms that work to restore the patient-physician 
     relationship by reducing administrative burdens and allowing 
     physicians to do what they do best--care for patients.
       (5) Choices.--Individuals and families should be free to 
     secure the health care coverage that best meets their needs, 
     rather than instituting one-size-fits-all directives from 
     Federal bureaucracies such as the Internal Revenue Service, 
     the Department of Health and Human Services, and the 
     Independent Payment Advisory Board.
       (6) Innovation.--Instead of stifling innovation in health 
     care technologies, treatments, medications, and therapies 
     with Federal mandates, taxes, and price controls, a reformed 
     health care system should encourage research, development and 
     innovation.
       (7) Responsiveness.--Reform should return authority to 
     States wherever possible to make the system more responsive 
     to patients and their needs. Instead of tying States' hands 
     with Federal requirements for their Medicaid programs, the 
     Federal Government should return control of this program to 
     the States. Not only does the current Medicaid program drive 
     up Federal debt and threaten to bankrupt State budgets, but 
     States are better positioned to provide quality, affordable 
     care to those who are eligible for the program and to track 
     down and weed out waste, fraud and abuse. Beneficiary choices 
     in the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) and 
     Medicaid should be improved. States should make available the 
     purchase of private insurance as an option to their Medicaid 
     and SCHIP populations (though they should not require 
     enrollment).
       (8) Reforms.--Reforms should be made to prevent lawsuit 
     abuse and curb the practice of defensive medicine, which are 
     significant drivers increasing health care costs. The burden 
     of proof in medical malpractice cases should be based on 
     compliance with best practice guidelines, and States should 
     be free to implement those policies to best suit their needs.

     SEC. 6206. POLICY STATEMENT ON MEDICARE.

       (a) Findings.--The House of Representatives finds the 
     following:
       (1) More than 50 million Americans depend on Medicare for 
     their health security.
       (2) The Medicare Trustees Report has repeatedly recommended 
     that Medicare's long-term financial challenges be addressed 
     soon. Each year without reform, the financial condition of 
     Medicare becomes more precarious and the threat to those in 
     or near retirement becomes more pronounced. According to the 
     Medicare Trustees Report--
       (A) the Hospital Insurance Trust Fund will be exhausted in 
     2030 and unable to pay scheduled benefits;
       (B) Medicare enrollment is expected to increase by over 50 
     percent in the next two decades, as 10,000 baby boomers reach 
     retirement age each day;
       (C) enrollees remain in Medicare three times longer than at 
     the outset of the program;
       (D) current workers' payroll contributions pay for current 
     beneficiaries;
       (E) in 2013, the ratio was 3.2 workers per beneficiary, but 
     this falls to 2.3 in 2030 and continues to decrease over 
     time;
       (F) most Medicare beneficiaries receive about three dollars 
     in Medicare benefits for every one dollar paid into the 
     program; and
       (G) Medicare spending is growing faster than the economy 
     and Medicare outlays are currently rising at a rate of 6.5 
     percent per year over the next 10 years. According to the 
     Congressional Budget Office's 2014 Long-Term Budget Outlook, 
     spending on Medicare is projected to reach 5 percent of gross 
     domestic product (GDP) by 2043 and 9.3 percent of GDP by 
     2089.
       (3) Failing to address this problem will leave millions of 
     American seniors without adequate health security and younger 
     generations burdened with enormous debt to pay for spending 
     levels that cannot be sustained.
       (b) Policy on Medicare Reform.--In the House of 
     Representatives, it is the policy of this concurrent 
     resolution to preserve the program for those in or near 
     retirement and strengthen Medicare for future beneficiaries.
       (c) Assumptions.--This concurrent resolution assumes reform 
     of the Medicare program such that--
       (1) current Medicare benefits are preserved for those in or 
     near retirement;
       (2) permanent reform of the sustainable growth rate is 
     responsibly accounted for to ensure physicians continue to 
     participate in the Medicare program and provide quality 
     health care for beneficiaries;
       (3) when future generations reach eligibility, Medicare is 
     reformed to provide a premium support payment and a selection 
     of guaranteed health coverage options from which recipients 
     can choose a plan that best suits their needs;
       (4) Medicare will maintain traditional fee-for-service as a 
     plan option;
       (5) Medicare will provide additional assistance for lower 
     income beneficiaries and those with greater health risks; and
       (6) Medicare spending is put on a sustainable path and the 
     Medicare program becomes solvent over the long-term.

     SEC. 6207. POLICY STATEMENT ON MEDICAL DISCOVERY, 
                   DEVELOPMENT, DELIVERY AND INNOVATION.

       (a) Findings.--The House of Representatives finds the 
     following:
       (1) For decades, the Nation's commitment to the discovery, 
     development, and delivery of new treatments and cures has 
     made the United States the biomedical innovation capital of 
     the world, bringing life-saving drugs and devices to patients 
     and well over a million high-paying jobs to local 
     communities.
       (2) Thanks to the visionary and determined leadership of 
     innovators throughout America, including industry, academic 
     medical centers, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), 
     the United States has led the way in early discovery. The 
     United States leadership role is being threatened, however, 
     as other countries contribute more to basic research from 
     both public and private sources.
       (3) The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and 
     Development predicts that China, for example, will outspend 
     the United States in total research and development by the 
     end of the decade.
       (4) Federal policies should foster innovation in health 
     care, not stifle it. America should maintain its world 
     leadership in medical science by encouraging competitive 
     forces to work

[[Page H2541]]

     through the marketplace in delivering cures and therapies to 
     patients.
       (5) Too often the bureaucracy and red-tape in Washington 
     hold back medical innovation and prevent new lifesaving 
     treatments from reaching patients. This concurrent resolution 
     recognizes the valuable role of the NIH and the indispensable 
     contributions to medical research coming from outside 
     Washington.
       (6) America is the greatest, most innovative Nation on 
     Earth. Her people are innovators, entrepreneurs, visionaries, 
     and relentless builders of the future. Americans were 
     responsible for the first telephone, the first airplane, the 
     first computer, for putting the first man on the moon, for 
     creating the first vaccine for polio and for legions of other 
     scientific and medical breakthroughs that have improved and 
     prolonged human health and life for countless people in 
     America and around the world.
       (b) Policy on Medical Innovation.--
       (1) In the House of Representatives, it is the policy of 
     this concurrent resolution to support the important work of 
     medical innovators throughout the country, including private-
     sector innovators, medical centers and the National 
     Institutes of Health.
       (2) At the same time, the budget calls for continued strong 
     funding for the agencies that engage in valuable research and 
     development, while also urging Washington to get out of the 
     way of researchers, discoverers and innovators all over the 
     country.

     SEC. 6208. POLICY STATEMENT ON FEDERAL REGULATORY REFORM.

       (a) Findings.--The House of Representatives finds the 
     following:
       (1) Excessive regulation at the Federal level has hurt job 
     creation and dampened the economy, slowing the Nation's 
     recovery from the economic recession.
       (2) Since President Obama's inauguration in 2009, the 
     administration has issued more than 468,500 pages of 
     regulations in the Federal Register including 70,066 pages in 
     2014.
       (3) The National Association of Manufacturers estimates the 
     total cost of regulations is as high as $2.03 trillion per 
     year. Since 2009, the White House has generated more than 
     $494 billion in regulatory activity, with an additional $87.6 
     billion in regulatory costs currently pending.
       (4) The Dodd-Frank financial services legislation (Public 
     Law 111-203) has resulted in more than $32 billion in 
     compliance costs and saddled job creators with more than 63 
     million hours of compliance paperwork.
       (5) Implementation of the Affordable Care Act to date has 
     added 132.9 million annual hours of compliance paperwork, 
     imposing $24.3 billion of compliance costs on the private 
     sector and an $8 billion cost burden on the States.
       (6) The highest regulatory costs come from rules issued by 
     the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA); these regulations 
     are primarily targeted at the coal industry. In June 2014, 
     the EPA proposed a rule to cut carbon pollution from the 
     Nation's power plants. The proposed standards are 
     unachievable with current commercially available technology, 
     resulting in a de-facto ban on new coal-fired power plants.
       (7) Coal-fired power plants provide roughly 40 percent of 
     the United States electricity at a low cost. Unfairly 
     targeting the coal industry with costly and unachievable 
     regulations will increase energy prices, disproportionately 
     disadvantaging energy-intensive industries like manufacturing 
     and construction, and will make life more difficult for 
     millions of low-income and middle class families already 
     struggling to pay their bills.
       (8) Three hundred and thirty coal units are being retired 
     or converted as a result of EPA regulations. Combined with 
     the de-facto prohibition on new plants, these retirements and 
     conversions may further increase the cost of electricity.
       (9) A recent study by the energy market analysis group 
     Energy Ventures Analysis Inc. estimates the average energy 
     bill in West Virginia will rise $750 per household by 2020, 
     due in part to EPA regulations. West Virginia receives 95 
     percent of its electricity from coal.
       (10) The Heritage Foundation found that a phase-out of coal 
     would cost 600,000 jobs by the end of 2023, resulting in an 
     aggregate gross domestic product decrease of $2.23 trillion 
     over the entire period and reducing the income of a family of 
     four by $1,200 per year. Of these jobs, 330,000 will come 
     from the manufacturing sector, with California, Texas, Ohio, 
     Illinois, Pennsylvania, Michigan, New York, Indiana, North 
     Carolina, Wisconsin, and Georgia seeing the highest job 
     losses.
       (b) Policy on Federal Regulatory Reform.--In the House of 
     Representatives, it is the policy of this concurrent 
     resolution that Congress should, in consultation with the 
     public burdened by excessive regulation, enact legislation 
     that--
       (1) promotes economic growth and job creation by 
     eliminating unnecessary red tape and streamlining and 
     simplifying Federal regulations;
       (2) requires the implementation of a regulatory budget to 
     be allocated amongst Government agencies, which would require 
     congressional approval and limit the maximum costs of 
     regulations in a given year;
       (3) requires congressional approval of all new major 
     regulations (those with an impact of $100 million or more) 
     before enactment as opposed to current law in which Congress 
     must expressly disapprove of regulation to prevent it from 
     becoming law, which would keep Congress engaged as to pending 
     regulatory policy and prevent costly and unsound policies 
     from being implemented and becoming effective;
       (4) requires a three year retrospective cost-benefit 
     analysis of all new major regulations, to ensure that 
     regulations operate as intended;
       (5) reinforces the requirement of regulatory impact 
     analysis for regulations proposed by executive branch 
     agencies but also expands the requirement to independent 
     agencies so that by law they consider the costs and benefits 
     of proposed regulations rather than merely being encouraged 
     to do so as is current practice; and
       (6) requires a formal rulemaking process for all major 
     regulations, which would increase transparency over the 
     process and allow interested parties to communicate their 
     views on proposed legislation to agency officials.

     SEC. 6209. POLICY STATEMENT ON HIGHER EDUCATION AND WORKFORCE 
                   DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITY.

       (a) Findings on Higher Education.--The House of 
     Representatives finds the following:
       (1) A well-educated workforce is critical to economic, job, 
     and wage growth.
       (2) Roughly 20 million students are enrolled in American 
     colleges and universities.
       (3) Over the past decade, tuition and fees have been 
     growing at an unsustainable rate. Between the 2004-2005 
     Academic Year and the 2014-2015 Academic Year--
       (A) published tuition and fees at public 4-year colleges 
     and universities increased at an average rate of 3.5 percent 
     per year above the rate of inflation;
       (B) published tuition and fees at public two-year colleges 
     and universities increased at an average rate of 2.5 percent 
     per year above the rate of inflation; and
       (C) published tuition and fees at private nonprofit 4-year 
     colleges and universities increased at an average rate of 2.2 
     percent per year above the rate of inflation.
       (4) Federal financial aid for higher education has also 
     seen a dramatic increase. The portion of the Federal student 
     aid portfolio composed of Direct Loans, Federal Family 
     Education Loans, and Perkins Loans with outstanding balances 
     grew by 119 percent between fiscal year 2007 and fiscal year 
     2014.
       (5) This spending has failed to make college more 
     affordable.
       (6) In his 2012 State of the Union Address, President Obama 
     noted: ``We can't just keep subsidizing skyrocketing tuition; 
     we'll run out of money''.
       (7) American students are chasing ever-increasing tuition 
     with ever-increasing debt. According to the Federal Reserve 
     Bank of New York, student debt now stands at nearly $1.2 
     trillion. This makes student loans the second largest balance 
     of consumer debt, after mortgage debt.
       (8) Students are carrying large debt loads and too many 
     fail to complete college or end up defaulting on these loans 
     due to their debt burden and a weak economy and job market.
       (9) Based on estimates from the Congressional Budget 
     Office, the Pell Grant Program will face a fiscal shortfall 
     beginning in fiscal year 2017 and continuing in each 
     subsequent year in the current budget window.
       (10) Failing to address these problems will jeopardize 
     access and affordability to higher education for America's 
     young people.
       (b) Policy on Higher Education Affordability.--In the House 
     of Representatives, it is the policy of this concurrent 
     resolution to address the root drivers of tuition inflation, 
     by--
       (1) targeting Federal financial aid to those most in need;
       (2) streamlining programs that provide aid to make them 
     more effective;
       (3) maintaining the maximum Pell grant award level at 
     $5,775 in each year of the budget window; and
       (4) removing regulatory barriers in higher education that 
     act to restrict flexibility and innovative teaching, 
     particularly as it relates to non-traditional models such as 
     online coursework and competency-based learning.
       (c) Findings on Workforce Development.--The House of 
     Representatives finds the following:
       (1) 8.7 million Americans are currently unemployed.
       (2) Despite billions of dollars in spending, those looking 
     for work are stymied by a broken workforce development system 
     that fails to connect workers with assistance and employers 
     with trained personnel.
       (3) The House Education and Workforce Committee 
     successfully consolidated 15 job training programs in the 
     recently enacted Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act.
       (d) Policy on Workforce Development.--In the House of 
     Representatives, it is the policy of this concurrent 
     resolution to address the failings in the current workforce 
     development system, by--
       (1) further streamlining and consolidating Federal job 
     training programs; and
       (2) empowering states with the flexibility to tailor 
     funding and programs to the specific needs of their 
     workforce, including the development of career scholarships.

     SEC. 6210. POLICY STATEMENT ON DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS 
                   AFFAIRS.

       (a) Findings.--The House of Representatives finds the 
     following:
       (1) For years, there has been serious concern regarding the 
     Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) bureaucratic 
     mismanagement and continuous failure to provide veterans 
     timely access to health care and benefits.
       (2) In 2014, reports started breaking across the Nation 
     that VA medical centers were manipulating wait-list documents 
     to hide long delays veterans were facing to receive health 
     care. The VA hospital scandal led to the immediate 
     resignation of then-Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. 
     Shinseki.
       (3) In 2015, for the first time ever, VA health care was 
     added to the ``high-risk'' list of the Government 
     Accountability Office (GAO), due to management and oversight 
     failures that have directly resulted in risks to the 
     timeliness, cost-effectiveness, and quality of health care.
       (4) In response to the scandal, the House Committee on 
     Veterans' Affairs held several oversight hearings and 
     ultimately enacted the Veterans' Access, Choice and 
     Accountability Act of

[[Page H2542]]

     2014 (VACAA) (Public Law 113-146) to address these problems. 
     VACAA provided $15 billion in emergency resources to fund 
     internal health care needs within the department and provided 
     veterans enhanced access to private-sector health care under 
     the new Veterans Choice Program.
       (b) Policy on the Department of Veterans Affairs.--This 
     budget supports the continued oversight efforts by the 
     Committee on Veterans' Affairs of the House of 
     Representatives to ensure the VA is not only transparent and 
     accountable, but also successful in achieving its goals in 
     providing timely health care and benefits to America's 
     veterans. The Committee on the Budget of the House of 
     Representatives will continue to closely monitor the VA's 
     progress to ensure resources provided by Congress are 
     sufficient and efficiently used to provide needed benefits 
     and services to veterans.

     SEC. 6211. POLICY STATEMENT ON FEDERAL ACCOUNTING 
                   METHODOLOGIES.

       (a) Findings.--The House of Representatives finds the 
     following:
       (1) Given the thousands of Federal programs and trillions 
     of dollars the Federal Government spends each year, assessing 
     and accounting for Federal fiscal activities and liabilities 
     is a complex undertaking.
       (2) Current methods of accounting leave much to be desired 
     in capturing the full scope of government and in presenting 
     information in a clear and compelling way that illuminates 
     the best options going forward.
       (3) Most fiscal analysis produced by the Congressional 
     Budget Office (CBO) is conducted over a relatively short time 
     horizon: 10 or 25 years. While this time frame is useful for 
     most purposes, it fails to consider the fiscal consequences 
     over the longer term.
       (4) Additionally, current accounting methodology does not 
     provide an analysis of how the Federal Government's fiscal 
     situation over the long run affects Americans of various age 
     cohorts.
       (5) Another consideration is how Federal programs should be 
     accounted for. The ``accrual method'' of accounting records 
     revenue when it is earned and expenses when they are 
     incurred, while the ``cash method'' records revenue and 
     expenses when cash is actually paid or received.
       (6) The Federal budget accounts for most programs using 
     cash accounting. Some programs, however, particularly loan 
     and loan guarantee programs, are accounted for using accrual 
     methods.
       (7) GAO has indicated that accrual accounting may provide a 
     more accurate estimation of the Federal Government's 
     liabilities than cash accounting for some programs 
     specifically those that provide some form of insurance.
       (8) Where accrual accounting is used, it is almost 
     exclusively calculated by CBO according to the methodology 
     outlined in the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990 (FCRA). CBO 
     uses fair value methodology instead of FCRA to measure the 
     cost of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, for example.
       (9) FCRA methodology, however, understates the risk and 
     thus the true cost of Federal programs. An alternative is 
     fair value methodology, which uses discount rates that 
     incorporate the risk inherent to the type of liability being 
     estimated in addition to Treasury discount rates of the 
     proper maturity length.
       (10) The Congressional Budget Office has concluded that 
     ``adopting a fair-value approach would provide a more 
     comprehensive way to measure the costs of Federal credit 
     programs and would permit more level comparisons between 
     those costs and the costs of other forms of federal 
     assistance'' than the current approach under FCRA.
       (b) Policy on Federal Accounting Methodologies.--In the 
     House of Representatives, it is the policy of this concurrent 
     resolution that Congress should, in consultation with the 
     Congressional Budget Office and the public affected by 
     Federal budgetary choices, adopt Government-wide reforms of 
     budget and accounting practices so the American people and 
     their representatives can more readily understand the fiscal 
     situation of the Government of the United States and the 
     options best suited to improving it. Such reforms may include 
     but should not be limited to the following:
       (1) Providing additional metrics to enhance our current 
     analysis by considering our fiscal situation comprehensively, 
     over an extended time horizon, and as it affects Americans of 
     various age cohorts.
       (2) Expanding the use of accrual accounting where 
     appropriate.
       (3) Accounting for certain Federal credit programs using 
     fair value accounting as opposed to the current approach 
     under the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990.

     SEC. 6212. POLICY STATEMENT ON REDUCING UNNECESSARY, 
                   WASTEFUL, AND UNAUTHORIZED SPENDING.

       (a) Findings.--The House of Representatives finds the 
     following:
       (1) The Government Accountability Office (GAO) is required 
     by law to identify examples of waste, duplication, and 
     overlap in Federal programs, and has so identified dozens of 
     such examples.
       (2) In its report to Congress on Government Efficiency and 
     Effectiveness, the Comptroller General has stated that 
     addressing the identified waste, duplication, and overlap in 
     Federal programs could ``lead to tens of billions of dollars 
     of additional savings.''.
       (3) In 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 the GAO issued reports 
     showing excessive duplication and redundancy in Federal 
     programs including--
       (A) two hundred nine Science, Technology, Engineering, and 
     Mathematics education programs in 13 different Federal 
     agencies at a cost of $3 billion annually;
       (B) two hundred separate Department of Justice crime 
     prevention and victim services grant programs with an annual 
     cost of $3.9 billion in 2010;
       (C) twenty different Federal entities administer 160 
     housing programs and other forms of Federal assistance for 
     housing with a total cost of $170 billion in 2010;
       (D) seventeen separate Homeland Security preparedness grant 
     programs that spent $37 billion between fiscal years 2011 and 
     2012;
       (E) fourteen grant and loan programs, and three tax 
     benefits to reduce diesel emissions;
       (F) ninety-four different initiatives run by 11 different 
     agencies to encourage ``green building'' in the private 
     sector; and
       (G) twenty-three agencies implemented approximately 670 
     renewable energy initiatives in fiscal year 2010 at a cost of 
     nearly $15 billion.
       (4) The Federal Government spends more than $80 billion 
     each year for approximately 1,400 information technology 
     investments. GAO has identified broad acquisition failures, 
     waste, and unnecessary duplication in the Government's 
     information technology infrastructure. experts have estimated 
     that eliminating these problems could save 25 percent or $20 
     billion.
       (5) GAO has identified strategic sourcing as a potential 
     source of spending reductions. In 2011 GAO estimated that 
     saving 10 percent of the total or all Federal procurement 
     could generate more than $50 billion in savings annually.
       (6) Federal agencies reported an estimated $106 billion in 
     improper payments in fiscal year 2013.
       (7) Under clause 2 of rule XI of the Rules of the House of 
     Representatives, each standing committee must hold at least 
     one hearing during each 120 day period following its 
     establishment on waste, fraud, abuse, or mismanagement in 
     Government programs.
       (8) According to the Congressional Budget Office, by fiscal 
     year 2015, 32 laws will expire, possibly resulting in $693 
     billion in unauthorized appropriations. Timely 
     reauthorizations of these laws would ensure assessments of 
     program justification and effectiveness.
       (9) The findings resulting from congressional oversight of 
     Federal Government programs should result in programmatic 
     changes in both authorizing statutes and program funding 
     levels.
       (b) Policy on Reducing Unnecessary, Wasteful, and 
     Unauthorized Spending.--
       (1) Each authorizing committee of the House of 
     Representatives annually should include in its Views and 
     Estimates letter required under section 301(d) of the 
     Congressional Budget Act of 1974 recommendations to the 
     Committee on the Budget of the House of Representatives of 
     programs within the jurisdiction of such committee whose 
     funding should be reduced or eliminated.
       (2) Committees of jurisdiction should review all 
     unauthorized programs funded through annual appropriations to 
     determine if the programs are operating efficiently and 
     effectively.
       (3) Committees should reauthorize those programs that in 
     the committees' judgment should continue to receive funding.
       (4) For those programs not reauthorized by committees, the 
     House of Representatives should enforce the limitations on 
     funding such unauthorized programs in the House rules. If the 
     strictures of the rules are deemed to be too rapid in 
     prohibiting spending on unauthorized programs, then milder 
     measures should be adopted and enforced until a return to the 
     full prohibition of clause 2(a)(1) of rule XXI of the Rules 
     of the House.

     SEC. 6213. POLICY STATEMENT ON DEFICIT REDUCTION THROUGH THE 
                   CANCELLATION OF UNOBLIGATED BALANCES.

       (a) Findings.--The House of Representatives finds the 
     following:
       (1) According to the most recent estimate from the Office 
     of Management and Budget, Federal agencies were expected to 
     hold $844 billion in unobligated balances at the close of 
     fiscal year 2015.
       (2) These funds represent direct and discretionary spending 
     previously made available by Congress that remains available 
     for expenditure.
       (3) In some cases, agencies are granted funding and it 
     remains available for obligation indefinitely.
       (4) The Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 
     1974 requires the Office of Management and Budget to make 
     funds available to agencies for obligation and prohibits the 
     Administration from withholding or cancelling unobligated 
     funds unless approved by an Act of Congress.
       (5) Greater congressional oversight is required to review 
     and identify potential savings from canceling unobligated 
     balances of funds that are no longer needed.
       (b) Policy on Deficit Reduction Through the Cancellation of 
     Unobligated Balances.--In the House of Representatives, 
     committees should through their oversight activities identify 
     and achieve savings through the cancellation or rescission of 
     unobligated balances that neither abrogate contractual 
     obligations of the Government nor reduce or disrupt Federal 
     commitments under programs such as Social Security, veterans' 
     affairs, national security, and Treasury authority to finance 
     the national debt.
       (c) Deficit Reduction.--The House of Representatives, with 
     the assistance of the Government Accountability Office, the 
     Inspectors General, and other appropriate agencies should 
     continue to make it a high priority to review unobligated 
     balances and identify savings for deficit reduction.

     SEC. 6214. POLICY STATEMENT ON AGENCY FEES AND SPENDING.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
       (1) A number of Federal agencies and organizations have 
     permanent authority to collect fees and other offsetting 
     collections and to spend these collected funds.
       (2) The total amount of offsetting fees and offsetting 
     collections is estimated by the Office of

[[Page H2543]]

     Management and Budget to be $525 billion in fiscal year 2016.
       (3) Agency budget justifications are, in some cases, not 
     fully transparent about the amount of program activity funded 
     through offsetting collections or fees. This lack of 
     transparency prevents effective and accountable government.
       (b) Policy on Agency Fees and Spending.--In the House of 
     Representatives, it is the policy of this concurrent 
     resolution that Congress must reassert its constitutional 
     prerogative to control spending and conduct oversight. To do 
     so, Congress should enact legislation requiring programs that 
     are funded through fees, offsetting receipts, or offsetting 
     collections to be allocated new budget authority annually. 
     Such allocation may arise from--
       (1) legislation originating from the authorizing committee 
     of jurisdiction for the agency or program; or
       (2) fee and account specific allocations included in annual 
     appropriation Acts.

     SEC. 6215. POLICY STATEMENT ON RESPONSIBLE STEWARDSHIP OF 
                   TAXPAYER DOLLARS.

       (a) Findings.--The House of Representatives finds the 
     following:
       (1) The budget for the House of Representatives is $188 
     million less than it was when Republicans became the majority 
     in 2011.
       (2) The House of Representatives has achieved significant 
     savings by consolidating operations and renegotiating 
     contracts.
       (b) Policy on Responsible Stewardship of Taxpayer 
     Dollars.--In the House of Representatives, it is the policy 
     of this concurrent resolution that:
       (1) The House of Representatives must be a model for the 
     responsible stewardship of taxpayer resources and therefore 
     must identify any savings that can be achieved through 
     greater productivity and efficiency gains in the operation 
     and maintenance of House services and resources like 
     printing, conferences, utilities, telecommunications, 
     furniture, grounds maintenance, postage, and rent. This 
     should include a review of policies and procedures for 
     acquisition of goods and services to eliminate any 
     unnecessary spending. The Committee on House Administration 
     should review the policies pertaining to the services 
     provided to Members and committees of the House of 
     Representatives, and should identify ways to reduce any 
     subsidies paid for the operation of the House gym, barber 
     shop, salon, and the House dining room.
       (2) No taxpayer funds may be used to purchase first class 
     airfare or to lease corporate jets for Members of Congress.
       (3) Retirement benefits for Members of Congress should not 
     include free, taxpayer-funded health care for life.

     SEC. 6216. POLICY STATEMENT ON ``NO BUDGET, NO PAY''.

       In the House of Representatives, it is the policy of this 
     concurrent resolution that Congress should agree to a 
     concurrent resolution on the budget every year pursuant to 
     section 301 of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974. If by 
     April 15, the House of Representatives has not agreed to a 
     concurrent resolution on the budget, the payroll 
     administrator of the House of Representatives should carry 
     out this policy in the same manner as the provisions of 
     Public Law 113-3, the No Budget, No Pay Act of 2013, and 
     should place in an escrow account all compensation otherwise 
     required to be made for Members of the House of 
     Representatives. Withheld compensation should be released to 
     Members of the House of Representatives the earlier of the 
     day on which the House of Representatives agrees to a 
     concurrent resolution on the budget, pursuant to section 301 
     of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974, or the last day of 
     that Congress.

     SEC. 6217. POLICY STATEMENT ON NATIONAL SECURITY FUNDING.

       (a) Findings.--The House of Representatives finds the 
     following:
       (1) Russian aggression, the growing threats of the Islamic 
     State of Iraq and the Levant in the Middle East, North Korean 
     and Iranian nuclear and missile programs, and continued 
     Chinese investments in high-end military capabilities and 
     cyber warfare shape the parameters of an increasingly complex 
     and challenging security environment.
       (2) All four current service chiefs testified that the 
     National Military Strategy could not be executed at 
     sequestration levels.
       (3) The independent and bipartisan National Defense Panel 
     conducted risk assessments of force structure changes 
     triggered by the Budget Control Act of 2011 (BCA) and 
     concluded that in addition to previous cuts to defense dating 
     back to 2009, the sequestration of defense discretionary 
     spending has ``caused significant shortfalls in U.S. military 
     readiness and both present and future capabilities''.
       (4) The President's fiscal year 2016 budget irresponsibly 
     ignores current law and requests a defense budget $38 billion 
     above the caps for rhetorical gain. By creating an 
     expectation of spending without a plan to avoid the BCA's 
     guaranteed sequester upon breaching of its caps, the White 
     House's proposal compounds the fiscal uncertainty that has 
     affected the military's ability to adequately plan for future 
     contingencies and make investments crucial for the Nation's 
     defense.
       (5) The President's budget proposes $1.8 trillion in tax 
     increases, in addition to the $1.7 trillion in tax hikes the 
     Administration has already imposed. The President's tax 
     increases would further burden economic growth and is not a 
     realistic source for offsets to fund defense sequester 
     replacement.
       (b) Policy on Fiscal Year 2016 National Defense Funding.--
     In fiscal year 2015, the House-passed budget resolution 
     anticipated $566 billion for national defense in the 
     discretionary base budget for fiscal year 2016. With no 
     necessary statutory change yet provided by Congress, the BCA 
     statute would require limiting national defense discretionary 
     base funding to $523 billion in fiscal year 2016. However, in 
     total with $90 billion, the House of Representatives Budget 
     estimate for Overseas Contingency Operations funding for the 
     Department of Defense, the fiscal year 2016 budget provides 
     over $613 billion total for defense spending that is higher 
     than the President's budget request for the fiscal year.
       (c) Defense Readiness and Modernization Fund.--(1) The 
     budget resolution recognizes the need to ensure robust 
     funding for national defense while maintaining overall fiscal 
     discipline. The budget resolution prioritizes our national 
     defense and the needs of the warfighter by providing needed 
     dollars through the creation of the ``Defense Readiness and 
     Modernization Fund''.
       (2) The Defense Readiness and Modernization Fund provides 
     the mechanism for Congress to responsibly allocate in a 
     deficit-neutral way the resources the military needs to 
     secure the safety and liberty of United States citizens from 
     threats at home and abroad. The Defense Readiness and 
     Modernization Fund will provide the chair of the Committee on 
     the Budget of the House of Representatives the ability to 
     increase allocations to support legislation that would 
     provide for the Department of Defense warfighting 
     capabilities, modernization, training and maintenance 
     associated with combat readiness, activities to reach full 
     auditability of the Department of Defense's financial 
     statements, and implementation of military and compensation 
     reforms.
       (d) Sequester Replacement for National Defense.--This 
     concurrent resolution encourages an immediate reevaluation of 
     Federal Government priorities to maintain the strength of 
     America's national security posture. In identifying policies 
     to restructure and stabilize the Government's major 
     entitlement programs which, along with net interest, will 
     consume all Federal revenue in less than 20 years, the budget 
     also charts a course that can ensure the availability of 
     needed national security resources.
       And the House agree to the same.

       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 House to the concurrent resolution (S. Con. 
     Res. 11), setting forth the congressional budget for the 
     United States Government for fiscal year 2016 and setting 
     forth the appropriate budgetary levels for fiscal years 2017 
     through 2025, 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:

                   Joint Explanatory Statement of the
                        Committee on Conference

       The conference agreement between the Senate and the House 
     on the fiscal year 2016 budget resolution is a statement of 
     good faith to the American people that Congress can govern 
     responsibly and effectively. This budget agreement achieves 
     five important objectives:
       It balances the budget within 10 years to address the 
     problem of government overspending and rising debt.
       It balances solely by limiting government spending, not by 
     raising taxes, thereby boosting the private sector economy 
     and job creation.
       It provides a path through reconciliation to repeal the 
     Affordable Care Act with its burdensome mandates and 
     restrictions, a first step toward introducing real, patient-
     centered health care reform.
       It makes national defense a priority and provides for the 
     maximum allowable defense funding under current law, with a 
     fiscally responsible path for further spending increases.
       It calls for a return to regular order in Congress, 
     allowing all committees to act fully and Appropriations 
     Committees to consider spending bills on time.
       It is well known that a budget is more than a set of 
     numbers. It is a reflection of national priorities, a vision 
     of the future. When developed in a responsible way, a sound 
     Federal budget can provide a foundation for moving America in 
     the direction of greater opportunity and economic growth and 
     a safer and more secure Nation.
       In writing this budget, Congress is restoring a priority 
     neglected since fiscal year 2010. Moreover, in writing a 10-
     year balanced budget, the House and Senate Budget Committees 
     have accomplished something the President's budget never does 
     and that Congress last achieved in fiscal year 2002--nearly 
     15 years ago. Passing this budget will also let

[[Page H2544]]

     the congressional policymakers who actually allocate the 
     dollars get to work and observe its spending limits to 
     achieve the Nation's goals.
       The agreement presents a responsible path forward to reduce 
     the Nation's debt burden and expand economic opportunity for 
     all Americans. In meeting the goals cited above, the budget 
     aims to restore public trust by eliminating wasteful 
     Washington overspending; making government truly more 
     effective and more accountable; protecting America's most 
     vulnerable citizens; and strengthening the health and 
     retirement of the Nation's seniors. It ensures taxpayers' 
     dollars are spent more wisely, and that Medicare, Medicaid, 
     nutrition assistance, and other programs can deliver on their 
     promises. While providing a sturdy and reliable safety net 
     for those who need it, this budget also helps others break 
     free of government dependency and pursue self-sufficiency.
       The budget's deficit reduction also will have tangible 
     benefits for the economy. The Congressional Budget Office 
     [CBO] has analyzed how the funding changes contained in the 
     conference report likely would affect U.S. economic 
     performance, finding that the fully implemented spending 
     levels of the budget resolution conference report would 
     improve the economy. Specifically, the budget office found 
     that: a) per capita real gross national product [GNP], a 
     proxy for a country's standard of living, would be 1.4 
     percent higher in 2025 than it would be without the spending 
     changes; and b) nominal GDP would be $400 billion higher by 
     fiscal year 2025 than it would otherwise be.
       On the current fiscal trajectory, which is marked by rising 
     debt levels as a share of the economy, government borrowing 
     would eventually lead to a decline in national savings and a 
     ``crowding out'' of private investment. Crowding out occurs 
     when the Federal Government's borrowing competes successfully 
     with that of private borrowers. Not only can the Federal 
     Government command credit resources more readily, thanks to 
     its generally superior rating for default risk when compared 
     with private borrowers, but excessive borrowing can put 
     upward pressure on interest rates that private borrowers must 
     pay. Less credit available in private lending markets could 
     mean higher prices for Americans as borrowers.
       CBO's analysis of the conference agreement indicates that 
     deficit reduction also creates long-term economic benefits 
     because it increases the pool of national savings and boosts 
     private investment, thereby raising economic growth and job 
     creation. CBO estimates that the conference agreement would 
     maintain budget balance in the years beyond the budget window 
     and significantly reduce Federal debt held by the public as a 
     percent of GDP. To put this in perspective, publicly held 
     debt to GDP currently stands at 74 percent, its highest level 
     since 1951, and is projected to rise steadily in the decades 
     ahead under CBO's extended current law baseline. CBO 
     estimates that the conference agreement would reduce debt as 
     a percent of GDP to 56 percent in 2025 and ultimately to 
     about 20 percent in 2040.
       A congressional budget develops in stages, of which a 
     concurrent resolution on the budget agreed to by the House 
     and Senate is the first. The resolution establishes a 
     framework for fiscal policy and proposes an alignment of 
     resources with Congress's governing priorities. It is the 
     only legislative vehicle that reflects a global assessment of 
     the governing majority's priorities and the demands on 
     Federal resources. Subsequently, respective committees of 
     jurisdiction develop, in accordance with their judgments, 
     policy reforms needed to achieve the budget's fiscal aims, 
     guided by the budget's aggregates and recommended function 
     levels, as presented later in this statement.
       The managers on the part of the House and the Senate of the 
     conference on the votes in disagreement between the Houses on 
     the concurrent resolution establishing the congressional 
     budget for the United States Government for fiscal year 2016, 
     and setting forth appropriate budgetary levels for fiscal 
     years 2017 through 2025 (S. Con. Res. 11) 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 House amendment struck all of the Senate concurrent 
     resolution after the resolving clause and inserted the text 
     of H. Con. Res. 27.
       The Senate recedes from its disagreement to the amendment 
     of the House with an amendment that is a substitute for the 
     Senate concurrent resolution and the House amendment. The 
     differences among the Senate concurrent resolution, the House 
     amendment thereto, 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 clarifying changes.
       Conferees on the Concurrent Resolution on the Budget for 
     Fiscal Year 2016 met in public session on Monday, April 20, 
     2015.

                          DISPLAYS AND AMOUNTS

       The required contents of concurrent budget resolutions are 
     set forth in section 301(a) of the Congressional Budget Act 
     of 1974. The years in this document are fiscal years unless 
     otherwise noted.
       Each function discussion provides recommended function 
     totals for budget authority and outlays, as well as a 
     breakout of discretionary (annually appropriated) and direct 
     (or mandatory) spending amounts for fiscal year 2016. These 
     figures are not binding; they are intended to provide an 
     overall accounting of estimated spending requirements and 
     priorities according to major categories of government 
     activities. Figures for the Senate resolution and the House 
     amendment are based on CBO's January 2015 baseline; 
     conference agreement numbers are based on CBO's March 2015 
     baseline, adjusted for the enactment of H.R. 2.


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       The Senate concurrent resolution includes all of the items 
     required under Section 301(a) of the Congressional Budget 
     Act.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The House amendment includes all of the items required as 
     part of a concurrent budget resolution under section 301(a) 
     of the Congressional Budget Act other than the spending and 
     revenue levels for Social Security Retirement and Disability 
     (which are used to enforce a point of order applicable only 
     in the Senate). It also adds three additional separate budget 
     functions: Government-Wide Savings (930); Overseas 
     Contingency Operations/Global War on Terrorism (970); and 
     Across-the-Board Adjustment (990).
       Discussion of the governing principles underlying the 
     budget's recommended policy reforms can be found in House 
     Report 114-47 accompanying H. Con. Res. 27, the House 
     Concurrent Resolution on the Budget for Fiscal Year 2016.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       The conference agreement includes all of the items required

                          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 upon the economic forecasts development by the 
     Congressional Budget Office and presented in CBO's ``Updated 
     Budget Projections: 2015 to 2015,'' (March 9, 2015).


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       The Senate resolution employed CBO's economic assumptions 
     published in January 2015.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The House amendment uses CBO's economic assumptions 
     published in January 2015.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       The conference agreement uses CBO's economic assumption 
     published in March 2015.

Notes:
1. Only on-budget amounts for fiscal years 2016-2025 are entered into the budget resolution legislative text. Off-budget amounts are shown for display purposes only.
2. The Office of Management and Budget and the Congressional Budget Office do not separately track outlays for the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT) once funds have been appropriated. The budget,
  therefore, shows in function 970 GWOT outlays that result from new budget authority occurring in fiscal years 2016-2025 only. Outlays resulting from GWOT activity prior to fiscal year 2016
  are included in budget functions 050 and 150.

                     National Defense: Function 050


                            FUNCTION SUMMARY

       The National Defense function includes funds to develop, 
     maintain, and equip the military forces of the United States. 
     Historically, about 95 percent of the funding in this 
     function goes to Department of Defense military activities; 
     the remaining funding applies to atomic energy defense 
     activities of the Department of Energy and other defense-
     related activities.


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       The Senate budget resolution calls for $531.3 billion in 
     regular budget authority and $564.0 billion in outlays in 
     fiscal year 2016. Regular discretionary budget authority in 
     fiscal year 2016 totals $523.1 billion, with $555.7 billion 
     in outlays; direct spending is $8.2 billion in budget 
     authority and $8.3 billion in outlays. Over 10 years, regular 
     budget authority totals $5,886.8 billion, and outlays are 
     $5,821.5 billion.
       As well, the function contains $89.0 billion in 
     discretionary budget authority and $87.1 billion in related 
     outlays for overseas contingency operations.

                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The House amendment abides by the Budget Control Act 
     discretionary defense cap of $523 billion for fiscal year 
     2016. In addition to this funding, the House amendment 
     continues to prioritize national defense by providing needed 
     dollars through the creation of the ``Defense Readiness and 
     Modernization Fund.'' The fund will provide the Chairman of 
     the House Committee on the Budget the ability to increase the 
     defense allocation, in a deficit-neutral way, to support 
     legislation that would provide additional resources for the 
     Department of Defense [DOD]. In total with $90 billion, the 
     House budget estimate for Overseas Contingency Operations 
     funding for DOD, the fiscal year 2016 budget provides more 
     than $613 billion total for defense spending--higher than the 
     President's budget request for the fiscal year.
       The House amendment includes a policy statement supporting 
     national defense and the need to replace the defense 
     discretionary sequester. Ultimately, the amendment fully 
     supports U.S. troops, both at home and abroad, especially as 
     the security environment becomes increasingly dangerous, 
     complex, and unpredictable.
       The House amendment specifies $531.3 billion in budget 
     authority and $564.0 billion in outlays in fiscal year 2016, 
     per current law. Discretionary budget authority is $523.1 
     billion, with $555.7 billion in associated outlays. Direct 
     spending for fiscal year 2016 totals $8.2 billion in budget 
     authority and $8.3 billion in outlays. The 10-year function 
     totals for budget authority and outlays are $6,329.8 billion 
     and $6,226.8 billion, respectively.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       The conference agreement calls for $531.3 billion in 
     regular budget authority and $564.3 billion in outlays in 
     fiscal year 2016. Regular discretionary budget authority in 
     fiscal year 2016 totals $523.1 billion, with $555.5 billion 
     in outlays; direct spending is $8.2 billion in budget 
     authority and $8.8 billion in outlays. Over 10 years, regular 
     budget authority totals $6,001.2 billion, and outlays are 
     $5,920.9 billion. Additional resources for national security 
     are provided outside this budget function through overseas 
     contingency operations funding in Function 970.
       The agreement supports funding for national defense that is 
     consistent with current law, thus removing the possibility of 
     across-the-board reductions to the national security budget. 
     The agreement makes clear that U.S. troops will have the 
     resources and support they need to meet the challenges of a 
     complex security environment. Taking into account both 
     funding in this function and the Overseas Contingency 
     Operations function, the agreement supports national security 
     spending levels above the President's request over the next 5 
     and 10 years.

                  International Affairs: Function 150


                            FUNCTION SUMMARY

       The International Affairs function contains spending on 
     international humanitarian and development assistance; 
     international security assistance; the conduct of foreign 
     affairs; foreign information and exchange activities; and 
     international financial programs. Major agencies with 
     programs funded under this function include the Departments 
     of State, Treasury, and Agriculture; the U.S. Agency for 
     International Development; and the Millennium Challenge 
     Corporation. Negative numbers in the descriptions below 
     reflect receipts from foreign-military sales and financing 
     programs.


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       The Senate budget resolution calls for $40.7 billion in 
     regular budget authority and $46.6 billion in outlays in 
     fiscal year 2016. Regular discretionary budget authority in 
     fiscal year 2016 totals $41.3 billion, with $47.9 billion in 
     related outlays. Direct spending is -$551 million in budget 
     authority and -$1.3 billion in outlays. Over 10 years, 
     regular budget authority totals $451.8 billion, and outlays 
     are $437.1 billion.
       The above figures exclude the $7.0 billion in discretionary 
     budget authority and $6.8 billion in related outlays provided 
     in this function for overseas contingency operations.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       Since 2001, funding for the international affairs base 
     budget (excluding Global War on Terrorism/Overseas 
     Contingency Operations funding) has increased by 45 percent, 
     adjusting for inflation. Yet more spending has not yielded 
     better results. Duplicative programs, programs unrelated to 
     vital U.S. national interests, and inefficiencies are 
     prevalent in the budget and should be addressed. This 
     amendment represents a thorough re-evaluation of accounts in 
     this category and prioritizes programs that are both integral 
     to the core mission and that effectively and efficiently 
     achieve desired outcomes. For this budget category, the House 
     amendment proposes a total of $38.3 billion in budget 
     authority and $42.9 billion in outlays for fiscal year 2016. 
     Most of the function's spending is discretionary, totaling 
     $38.9 billion in budget authority and $44.2 billion in 
     outlays for fiscal year 2016. Direct spending amounts are 
     -$551 million in budget authority and -$1.3 billion in 
     outlays. Over 10 years the resolution provides $427.6 billion 
     in budget authority and $410.7 billion in outlays.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       The conference agreement calls for $40.2 billion in regular 
     budget authority and $46.0 billion in outlays in fiscal year 
     2016. Regular discretionary budget authority in fiscal year 
     2016 totals $40.1 billion, with $47.1 billion in outlays; 
     direct spending is $108 million in budget authority and -$1.1 
     billion in outlays. Over 10 years, regular budget authority 
     totals $438.5 billion, with outlays of $431.7 billion. 
     Additional resources for international affairs are provided 
     outside this budget function through overseas contingency 
     operations funding in Function 970.
       The agreement supports international affairs activities 
     with the goal of promoting U.S. interests abroad and 
     supporting humanitarian and development assistance overseas. 
     It recognizes the need for review of programs in this 
     function as many of them continue to receive funding despite 
     expired authorizations. The agreement supports efforts by the 
     committees of jurisdiction to reform U.S. foreign aid 
     programs to ensure that foreign assistance is prioritized to 
     deliver aid in a more effective and transparent manner.

          General Science, Space, and Technology: Function 250


                            FUNCTION SUMMARY

       The General Science, Space, and Technology function 
     includes the National Science Foundation, programs other than 
     aviation programs at the National Aeronautics and Space 
     Administration, and general science programs at the 
     Department of Energy.


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       The Senate budget resolution calls for $30.0 billion in 
     budget authority and $30.0 billion in outlays in fiscal year 
     2016. Discretionary budget authority in fiscal year 2016 
     totals $29.9 billion, with $29.9 billion in related outlays. 
     Direct spending is $107 million in budget authority and $105 
     million in outlays. Over 10 years, budget authority totals 
     $331.4 billion, and outlays are $328.5 billion.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The House amendment reduces excess and unnecessary 
     spending, while supporting core government responsibilities. 
     It preserves basic research, providing stable funding for the 
     National Science Foundation to conduct its authorized 
     activities in science, space, and technology basic research, 
     development, and science, technology, engineering, and math 
     [STEM] education, while shifting the focus back to basic 
     research. The amendment provides continued support for the 
     National Aeronautics and Space Administration [NASA] and 
     recognizes the vital strategic importance of the United 
     States remaining the pre-eminent space-faring nation. The 
     amendment aligns funding in accordance with the NASA core 
     principles to support robust space capability, to allow for 
     exploration beyond low Earth orbit, and to support the 
     Nation's scientific and educational base. Total funding in 
     the amendment is $28.4 billion and $29.0 billion in budget 
     authority and outlays, respectively, in fiscal year 2016. 
     Nearly all the function's spending is discretionary, with 
     $28.3 billion in budget authority and $28.9 billion in 
     outlays in fiscal year 2016; direct spending is $107 million 
     in budget authority and $105 million in outlays. The 10-year 
     totals are $313.1 billion in budget authority and $309.3 
     billion in outlays.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       Function 250 consists almost entirely of discretionary 
     funding. The largest component of this category--about half 
     of total spending--is for NASA's space-flight, research, and 
     supporting activities. The conference agreement recognizes 
     and supports preserving the Federal scientific community's 
     original role as a venue for groundbreaking basic science 
     research discoveries and a driver of innovation and economic 
     growth. The agreement calls for $29.2 billion in budget 
     authority and $29.6 billion in outlays in fiscal year 2016. 
     Discretionary budget authority in fiscal year 2016 is $29.1 
     billion, with outlays of $29.5 billion; direct spending is 
     $100 million in budget authority and $101 million in outlays. 
     Over 10 years, budget authority totals $322.3 billion, and

                          Energy: Function 270


                            FUNCTION SUMMARY

       The Energy function concerns the production, development, 
     and use of energy for the country. This function contains 
     civilian energy programs at agencies including the 
     Departments of Energy and Agriculture, Tennessee Valley 
     Authority, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, and Nuclear 
     Regulatory Commission. Negative numbers in the function 
     mainly reflect the incoming repayment of loans and receipts 
     from the sale of electricity produced by Federal entities, 
     which are accounted for as negative spending.


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       The Senate budget resolution calls for -$1.9 billion in 
     budget authority and $2.4 billion in outlays in fiscal year 
     2016. Discretionary budget authority in fiscal year 2016 
     totals $3.1 billion, with $4.2 billion in related outlays. 
     Direct spending is -$5.1 billion in budget authority and 
     -$1.8 billion in outlays. Over 10 years, budget authority 
     totals $6.9 billion, and outlays are $6.1 billion.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       A central aim of policies assumed in this function is to 
     ensure that private sector capital is not crowded out by 
     government overreach and bureaucratic waste. The policies 
     also should protect taxpayers from poor government decision-
     making that wastes Federal dollars and increases energy 
     prices. Finally, streamlining research and development 
     activities across the Department of Energy will increase 
     efficiency and consolidate

     operations, leading to reduced costs. These are the 
     guiding principles for energy policy in the House 
     amendment. For fiscal year 2016, the budget resolution 
     provides -$3.6 billion in budget authority, with $654 
     million in related outlays. The discretionary figures for 
     fiscal year 2016 are $2.1 billion in budget authority and 
     $2.4 billion in outlays, with direct spending of -$5.6 
     billion in budget authority and -$1.8 billion in outlays. 
     Ten-year function totals are $5.9 billion in budget 
     authority and $4.7 billion in outlays.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       The conference agreement promotes abundant and affordable 
     American energy production and use. It envisions policies 
     that realign the size and role of government involvement in 
     the private sector, while empowering the committees of 
     jurisdiction to pursue legislation in pursuit of these broad 
     goals. The agreement provides -$3.2 billion in budget 
     authority for fiscal year 2016 and $1.4 billion in outlays.

                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The House amendment continues to support policies that will 
     make America's natural resources available to producers who 
     can provide a fair return to taxpayers. In addition to the 
     receipts the Federal Government collects from royalties, 
     rents, and bonus bids, the increased economic activity on 
     Federal land will create jobs and boost economic output. The 
     amendment supports reducing the Federal estate, and giving 
     States and localities more control over the resources within 
     their boundaries. The House budget provides $35.4 billion in 
     budget authority for fiscal year 2016, with $38.1 billion in 
     related outlays. The discretionary spending figures for 
     fiscal year 2016 are $34.4 billion in budget authority and

     billion in outlays.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       The conference agreement promotes a safe and healthy 
     environment that can accompany robust economic growth and job 
     creation. It supports better management of the lands and 
     resources overseen by the Federal Government, including 
     potentially reducing the Federal estate, and a more 
     responsible relationship between regulatory agencies and the 
     private sector. The agreement provides $36.4 billion in 
     budget authority for fiscal year 2016 and $39.5 billion in 
     outlays. These figures include $34.4 billion in discretionary 
     budget authority and $37.0 billion in discretionary outlays, 
     as well as $1.9 billion in direct spending budget authority 
     with $2.5 billion in outlays. Spending through the 10-year 
     budget window totals $406.0 billion in budget authority and

                       Agriculture: Function 350


                            FUNCTION SUMMARY

       The Agriculture function helps provide for the continued 
     success of American agriculture and the agricultural 
     industry. This function includes only programs and policies 
     concerned with agricultural production, including direct 
     assistance and loans to farmers; export assistance; 
     agricultural research; and marketing, information, and animal 
     and plant health inspection services.


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       The Senate budget resolution calls for $20.6 billion in 
     budget authority and $20.6 billion in outlays in fiscal year 
     2016. Discretionary budget authority in fiscal year 2016 
     totals $5.9 billion, with $5.9 billion in related outlays. 
     Direct spending is $14.7 billion in budget authority and 
     $14.7 billion in outlays. Over 10 years, budget authority 
     totals $218.1 billion, and outlays are $213.3 billion.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The House amendment recommends that a higher priority be 
     given to competitive grant-based agricultural research. This 
     type of research funding, in contrast to formula-based and 
     other types, is most likely to spur agricultural productivity 
     growth, which is important to enhancing the international 
     competitiveness of U.S. agriculture over the longer term. 
     Also, continued attention should be given to streamlining 
     and, where possible, consolidating operations and activities 
     across U.S. Department of Agriculture agencies, including in 
     its large network of county field offices.
       The 2014 farm bill made a number of reforms to agricultural 
     policies, most notably by eliminating direct payments, but 
     significant declines in market prices over the past year are 
     expected to result in increased levels of assistance under 
     the farm bill's new price- and revenue-based programs. While 
     it is important to continue to reform agricultural programs, 
     weather and market challenges continue to highlight the 
     importance of maintaining a safety net for farmers.
       In this function, the amendment provides $20.1 billion in 
     budget authority and $21.2 billion in outlays for fiscal year 
     2016. Discretionary budget authority in fiscal 2016 is $6.1 
     billion; outlays are $6.0 billion. The direct spending share 
     of the fiscal year 2016 function totals are $14.0 billion in 
     budget authority and $15.2 billion in outlays. For the period 
     of fiscal years 2016 through 2025, budget authority totals 
     $204.5 billion and outlays are $201.9 billion.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       The conference agreement empowers the Committees on 
     Agriculture in the House of Representatives and Senate to 
     build on the reforms in the 2014 farm bill to ensure American 
     agriculture remains a vital part of the Nation's economy 
     while supporting rural economies in a fiscally responsible 
     way. The agreement provides $19.1 billion in budget authority 
     for fiscal year 2016 and $21.6 billion in outlays in this 
     function. These amounts include $6.0 billion in discretionary 
     budget authority and $5.9 billion in discretionary outlays, 
     as well as direct spending amounts of $13.1 billion in budget 
     authority and $15.6 billion in outlays. Total spending over 
     the next 10 years in this function equals $204.2 billion in 
     budget authority and $201.1 billion in outlays.

               Commerce and Housing Credit: Function 370


                            FUNCTION SUMMARY

       The Commerce and Housing Credit function includes mortgage 
     credit, the U.S. Postal Service, deposit insurance, and most 
     of the activities of the Departments of Commerce and Housing 
     and Urban Development. Negative figures in this function 
     mainly reflect the negative subsidy rates applied to certain 
     loan and loan-guarantee programs scored under the guidelines 
     of the Federal Credit Reform Act, such as the Federal Housing 
     Administration [FHA] and the Government National Mortgage 
     Association (commonly known as Ginnie Mae) programs.


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

     2016. Discretionary budget authority in fiscal year 2016 
     totals -$8.1 billion, with -$7.9 billion in related outlays.

     -$3.7 billion in outlays. Over 10 years, budget authority 
     totals -$5.6 billion, and outlays are -$179.9 billion. These

     associated with this function.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The House amendment envisions a Federal system that 
     supports commerce and housing and regulates in an efficient 
     manner, providing sufficient oversight where necessary 
     without wasting taxpayer monies or stifling free enterprise. 
     The amendment calls for minimizing subsidies to commercial 
     entities where possible and protecting taxpayers from the 
     risk of future bailouts. Additionally, it envisions 
     adjusting the budgets of Federal agencies to levels 
     necessary to effectively and efficiently execute their 
     missions, and creating a climate that supports rather than 
     stifles commerce and free enterprise. The House amendment 
     also recommends giving the Postal Service the flexibility 
     that any business needs to respond to changing market 
     conditions, including declining mail volume, which is down 
     more than 25 percent since 2006.
       In this function, on a unified basis, the amendment 
     provides -$6.8 billion in budget authority and -$20.1 billion 
     in outlays for fiscal year 2016, of which -$13.1 billion is 
     discretionary budget authority, with -$12.8 billion in 
     outlays. Direct spending for fiscal 2016 is $6.4 billion in 
     budget authority and -$7.3 billion in outlays. For fiscal 
     years 2016 through 2025, the amendment provides -$103.8 
     billion in budget authority and -$277.3 billion in outlays.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       The conference agreement supports policies that would 
     reduce the risk of taxpayer bailouts and promote free 
     enterprise. Additionally, the agreement aims to remove 
     burdensome regulations so the economy can run more 
     efficiently. Fiscal year 2016 budget authority totals -$4.0 
     billion, and outlays total -$13.6 billion. Discretionary 
     budget authority in fiscal year 2016 totals -$10.6 billion, 
     with -$7.2 billion in related outlays. Direct spending budget 
     authority is $6.6 billion in fiscal year 2016, with -$6.4 
     billion in outlays. Over 10 years, budget authority in 
     Function 370 totals -$79.7 billion, and outlays are -$244.3 
     billion. These totals reflect combined on- and off-budget 
     amounts.

                            house amendment

       The amendment prioritizes the solvency of the Highway Trust 
     Fund, aligns spending with incoming revenue, and ensures any 
     general fund transfers will be fully offset. It provides the 
     authorizing committees flexibility through a deficit-neutral 
     reserve fund. It also maintains essential funding for surface 
     transportation, aviation, and safety--offset by reductions in 
     other transportation activities of lower priority to the 
     Federal Government.
       For fiscal year 2016, the amendment provides $36.7 billion 
     in budget authority and $79.2 billion in associated outlays. 
     Those amounts consist of $31.0 billion in fiscal 2016 
     discretionary budget authority and $78.1 billion in outlays, 
     and direct spending budget authority of $5.7 billion, with 
     $1.1 billion in outlays. Over 10 years, the function totals 
     are $741.5 billion in budget authority and $781.5 billion in 
     outlays.


                          conference agreement

       The conference agreement provides essential funding for 
     surface transportation, aviation, and safety, offset by 
     reductions in transportation activities of lower priority to 
     the Federal Government. Through deficit-neutral reserve 
     funds, the agreement gives the committees of jurisdiction 
     flexibility in future legislation involving the Highway Trust 
     Fund. The fund is put on more sound financial footing and its 
     solvency reinstated. The agreement provides $72.1 billion in 
     budget authority for fiscal year 2016 and $87.2 billion in 
     outlays. These amounts include $30.1 billion in discretionary

                           senate resolution

       The Senate budget resolution calls for $86.3 billion in 
     budget authority and $95.7 billion in outlays in fiscal year 
     2016. Discretionary budget authority in fiscal year 2016

     $930.0 billion, and outlays are $942.3 billion.


                            house amendment

       Rather than foster a system that drives up tuition and 
     presents too many students with the difficult choice between 
     crippling debt and stopping short of their highest 
     educational attainment, the House amendment envisions a 
     framework that uses Federal dollars more efficiently, 
     accounts for student loans in a way that reflects their true 
     cost, and invests in a sustainable higher education system. 
     The amendment also views Federal support for K-12 education 
     as just that: It should support, not seize control from, 
     State and local entities. Real gains in education result from 
     the diversity and creativity of State and local educators, 
     and the trend toward centralizing rules and standards in 
     Washington risks smothering effectiveness and innovation.
       Toward these ends, the amendment provides $80.6 billion in 
     budget authority and $90.4 billion in outlays for fiscal year 
     2016. Of those amounts, $88.2 billion is discretionary budget 
     authority, with $91.4 billion in associated outlays. Direct 
     spending in fiscal 2016 totals -$7.6 billion in budget 
     authority and -$967 million in outlays. (The negative figures 
     result mainly from the methodology used to score direct 
     student loans under the Federal Credit Reform Act.) Over 10 
     years, the House amendment provides $883.2 billion in total 
     budget authority and $900.5 billion in outlays.


                          conference agreement

       The conference agreement supports reforms to the current 
     educational system in order to give the Nation's students the 
     opportunity for a better, more affordable education. In 
     addition, it encourages the enactment of policies that better 
     equip Americans of all ages to excel not only in school but 
     also in the workforce. Function 500 totals amount to $83.3 
     billion in budget authority and $93.3 billion in outlays in 
     fiscal year 2016. Discretionary budget authority in fiscal 
     year 2016 totals $89.8 billion, with $93.8 billion in related 
     outlays. Direct spending budget authority is -$6.5 billion in 
     fiscal year 2016, with -$504 million in outlays. Over 10 
     years, budget authority totals $932.6 billion, and outlays

     in full--its spending, taxes, regulations, and mandates--as a 
     first step toward introducing real, patient-centered health 
     care reform in America. The amendment contains a policy 
     statement describing the contours of this strategy, 
     emphasizing affordability, accessibility, quality, choices, 
     innovation, responsiveness, and legal reforms. The amendment 
     also supports major reforms to strengthen and secure Medicaid 
     benefits, such as converting the Federal share of Medicaid 
     into State Flexibility Funds that each State may tailor to 
     its own needs. For fiscal year 2016, the amendment provides 
     $416.5 billion in budget authority in Function 550, with 
     $426.9 billion in associated outlays. For discretionary

                          conference agreement

     President's health care law. The agreement accommodates 
     legislation from the committees of jurisdiction in the House 
     and Senate to continue to develop health care solutions that 
     lower costs and improve access to care. It envisions Medicaid 
     reform, based on a framework proposed by the chairmen of the 
     committees of jurisdiction in the House and the Senate, to 
     modernize and improve the program while increasing State 
     flexibility and protecting the most vulnerable populations.
       The conference agreement calls for $433.1 billion in budget 
     authority and $430.9 billion in outlays in fiscal year 2016.

                            function summary

       The Medicare function includes only the Medicare program, 
     which provides health insurance to senior citizens and 
     certain persons with disabilities. Nearly 99 percent of 
     spending in this function occurs on the direct side of the 
     budget, and almost all of the direct spending consists of 
     payments for Medicare benefits. The balance of spending is 
     discretionary annual appropriations for the cost of 
     administering and monitoring the Medicare program.

                            house amendment

       The amendment recognizes the imperative of saving, 
     strengthening, and securing the future of Medicare. The 
     current spending trajectory of Medicare will result in an 
     inability to provide the promised benefits to America's 
     seniors in the not-so-distant future. The amendment pursues a 
     responsible course to ensure the viability of the Medicare 
     Program through a number of structural reforms, including 
     transitioning to a premium support model bringing patient 
     choices and helpful competition into the program, allowing 
     for improvement in quality care, increasing accessibility and 
     affordability, and a real check on wasteful practices. For 
     fiscal year 2016, the function totals in the amendment are 
     $577.7 billion in budget authority and $577.6 billion in 
     outlays. The direct spending portion for fiscal 2016 totals

     billion in budget authority and outlays. Over 10 years, 
     Function 570 spending is projected at $7,181.2 billion in 
     budget authority and $7,180.2 billion in outlays.


                          conference agreement

       The conference agreement supports the repeal of the 
     President's health care law, including the repeal of the 
     Medicare Independent Payment Advisory Board. The agreement 
     proposes the same amount of Medicare savings reflected in the 
     Senate-passed fiscal year 2016 budget as a target to extend 
     the life of the Hospital Insurance trust fund and tasks the 
     committees of jurisdiction in the House and Senate with 
     determining the specific Medicare reforms needed to bring 
     spending levels under current law in line with the budget. 
     Finally, the conference agreement accounts for the full cost 
     of H.R. 2, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act 
     of 2015.
       The conference agreement calls for $579.4 billion in budget 
     authority and $579.4 billion in outlays in fiscal year 2016.

                            house amendment

       The House amendment proposes to continue the successful 
     welfare reforms of the 1990s by improving work requirements 
     for means-tested programs to help more people escape poverty 
     and move up the economic ladder. It focuses resources on 
     programs that deliver real results, restraining spending to 
     reasonable levels, reducing improper payments, and allowing 
     States more ability to improve programs through policy 
     innovation. For fiscal year 2016, the amendment provides 
     $512.4 billion in budget authority, with $513.7 billion in

     authority and $5,048.2 billion in outlays.


                          conference agreement

       The conference agreement assumes the enactment of proposals 
     to reduce poverty and increase opportunity and upward 
     mobility for struggling Americans on the road to personal and 
     financial independence. Based on the successful welfare 
     reforms of the 1990s, these proposals would improve work 
     requirements and provide flexible funding for States to help 
     those most in need find gainful employment, escape poverty, 
     and move up the economic ladder. The agreement focuses 
     resources on programs that deliver real results, reducing 
     wasteful spending and empowering States to make key decisions 
     and improve welfare programs through policy innovation. In 
     fiscal year 2016, the agreement provides $523.1 billion in 
     total budget authority and $523.6 billion in total outlays. 
     Discretionary budget authority is $63.2 billion, and outlays 
     are $64.2 billion. Direct spending is $459.9 billion in

                            house amendment

       Absent structural reform, Social Security will fail to 
     fulfill its promises to the Nation's retired and disabled 
     persons--and that outcome will occur sooner than expected. 
     With each year Congress delays, the policy changes needed to 
     correct the program's fiscal trajectory will become larger 
     and more wrenching to adopt, eventually leading to sudden, 
     steep reductions in benefits. The House amendment calls for a 
     bipartisan way forward, encouraging the President and 
     Congress to begin the process of reforming Social Security. 
     The budget provides $930.0 billion in unified Function 650 
     budget authority in fiscal year 2016, and $925.9 billion in 
     outlays. The discretionary figures for fiscal 2016 are $5.0

     Congress will work together on a bipartisan basis to preserve 
     Social Security for current and future generations. It 
     assumes enactment of legislation that will prevent the near-
     term insolvency of the Disability Insurance program; improve 
     the administration and coordination of benefits; and increase 
     employment opportunities for disabled workers. The agreement 
     also assumes the President will submit legislation to 
     Congress addressing the long-term insolvency both of the Old-
     Age and Survivors Insurance program and the Disability 
     Insurance program. In fiscal year 2016, the agreement 
     provides $928.9 billion in total budget authority and $925.0 
     billion in total outlays. Discretionary budget authority is 
     $5.0 billion, and outlays are $5.1 billion. Direct spending 
     is $923.9 billion in budget authority and $919.8 billion in

                            house amendment

       With the risk of terrorism, as well as a tidal wave of 
     debt, the House amendment focuses Federal taxpayer money for 
     the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security on 
     administering justice, arresting and prosecuting terrorists, 
     investigating crimes, and seeking punishment for those guilty 
     of unlawful behavior. For fiscal year 2016, the House

                            house amendment

       The House amendment advances the idea that a government 
     seeking greater efficiency in its programs should demand no 
     less from its own operations. This should be achieved by

                            house amendment

       The House amendment recommends no changes in this function, 
     leaving it instead at the CBO baseline levels. The CBO 
     baseline includes total savings of $33.5 billion in budget 
     authority and $17.3 billion in outlays in fiscal year 2016, 
     and $405.7 billion and $357.9 billion in reductions for 
     budget authority and outlays over 10 years, respectively, to 
     reflect the impact of the Budget Control Act [BCA] on non-
     defense and non-Medicare spending. The following two 
     components are included in the baseline:
       1. A reduction of $383.4 billion in budget authority and 
     $342.4 billion in outlays for non-defense activities, needed 
     to comply with the discretionary spending caps set by section 
     101 of the BCA;
       2. A $22.3 billion and $15.5 billion reduction in budget 
     authority and outlays, respectively, to non-Medicare and non-
     defense direct spending programs necessary to comply with the 
     automatic-enforcement procedure (the direct spending 
     sequester) mandated by the BCA.


                          conference agreement

       The conference agreement calls for $25.3 billion in budget 
     authority and $45.5 billion in outlays in fiscal year 2016. 
     Discretionary budget authority in fiscal year 2016 totals

[[Page H2559]]

     -$5.4 billion, with $14.9 billion in related outlays. Direct 
     spending budget authority and outlays each total $30.7 
     billion. Over 10 years, total budget authority is -$908.2 
     billion, and outlays are -$798.6 billion.

                 Government-Wide Savings: Function 930


                            function summary

       This House category includes various policies that produce 
     government-wide savings in multiple categories rather than in 
     a single, specific budget function.


                           senate resolution

       The Senate resolution does not contain a Function 930.


                            house amendment

       The resolution calls for spending of $27.5 billion and 
     $18.4 billion in budget authority and outlays, respectively, 
     in fiscal year 2016. The 10-year totals for budget authority 
     and outlay savings are -$496.9 billion and -$418.2 billion, 
     respectively. (The figures appear in Function 930 in the 
     summary tables.) As is true elsewhere, specific policies will 
     be determined by the appropriate committees of jurisdiction.

            Undistributed Offsetting Receipts: Function 950


                            function summary

       The Undistributed Offsetting Receipts function comprises 
     major offsetting receipts items that would distort the 
     funding levels of other functional categories if they were 
     distributed to them.


                           senate resolution

       All funding in this function is direct spending. The Senate 
     budget resolution calls for -$86.0 billion in budget 
     authority and outlays in fiscal year 2016 (The minus sign 
     indicates receipts flowing into the Treasury.). Over 10 
     years, budget authority totals -$1,102.6 billion, with 
     -$1,102.8 billion in outlays. These figures reflect the 
     combined on- and off-budget amounts associated with this 
     function.


                            house amendment

       The House amendment examines the management of Federal 
     fleet vehicles, real-property, and lands among other assets 
     in an effort to help taxpayers recoup billions of dollars 
     devoted to unused government property. The House amendment 
     calls for -$90.1 billion in budget authority and outlays in 
     fiscal year 2016, all of which is direct spending. Over 10 
     years, budget authority and outlays total -$1,154.6 
     billion.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       The conference agreement calls for -$99.2 billion in budget 
     authority and outlays for fiscal year 2016. The negative 
     figures reflect receipts flowing into the Treasury. Over 10 
     years, budget authority and outlays each total -$1,292.4 
     billion. These figures reflect the combined on- and off-
     budget amounts associated with this function.

 Overseas Contingency Operations/Global War on Terrorism: Function 970


                            FUNCTION SUMMARY

       This function includes funding for the prosecution of 
     Overseas Contingency Operations/Global War on Terrorism and 
     other closely related activities.


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       The Senate resolution does not have a Function 970.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The amendment assumes $90.0 billion as a placeholder 
     estimate of the budgetary resources necessary to fulfill the 
     Department of Defense's war policy, with final decisions 
     still pending assessment. Combined with the base resources 
     for National Defense, the fiscal year 2016 budget provides 
     more than $613 billion in total defense spending for the 
     Global War on Terrorism. The House amendment provides for 
     higher total defense resources than the President's request 
     in fiscal year 2016, the President's 5-year plan, and the 
     President's 10-year levels.
       This function also estimates $6 billion in funding for the 
     activities of civilian agencies--primarily the State 
     Department and USAID--as part of the integrated civil-
     military strategy for securing American objectives in the 
     frontline states.
       The House amendment provides $96.0 billion in budget 
     authority and $45.4 billion in outlays for fiscal year 2016. 
     The 10-year totals for budget authority and outlays are 
     $229.3 billion and $196.6 billion, respectively.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       The agreement supports overseas contingency operations 
     funding at a level appropriate to meet the challenges posed 
     by an increasingly dangerous security environment, and 
     reflects a realistic ramp-down path for this funding over the 
     budget window. Funding in this function will provide support 
     for military and diplomatic operations to counter the danger 
     from growing global instability and threats posed by those 
     who challenge U.S. security interests at home and abroad. The 
     agreement sets the overall allocation for overseas 
     contingency operations funding. The committees of 
     jurisdiction will determine the specific policies.
       The conference agreement calls for $96.3 billion in budget 
     authority and $48.8 billion in outlays in fiscal year 2016. 
     There is no direct spending in this function. Over 10 years, 
     budget authority totals $378.2 billion, and outlays are 
     $373.8 billion.

               Across-the-Board Adjustment: Function 990


                            FUNCTION SUMMARY

       This House function reflects the impact of an across-the-
     board rescission affecting the Department of Homeland 
     Security that was included in the Consolidated and Further 
     Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015 (Public Law 113-235).


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       The Senate resolution does not contain a Function 990.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The CBO baseline for Function 990 includes reductions of 
     $241 million in budget authority and $226 million in outlays 
     over 10 years. The resolution recommends retaining the 
     baseline levels.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       The conference agreement does not contain a separate 
     Function 990.

                                Revenues


                            FUNCTION SUMMARY

       Federal revenues are comprised of taxes and other 
     collections from the public that result from the Government's 
     sovereign powers to impose levies under Article I, section 8, 
     clause I of the U.S. Constitution. Federal revenues include 
     individual and corporate incomes taxes, social insurance 
     taxes, excise taxes, estate and gift taxes, customs duties, 
     and miscellaneous receipts.


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       The Senate budget resolution calls for $3,459.5 billion in 
     revenues in fiscal year 2016 ($2,666.8 billion on-budget, 
     $792.8 billion off-budget) and $41,669.7 billion over 10 
     years ($32,170.6 billion on-budget, $9,499.1 billion off-
     budget).


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The U.S. tax code is notoriously complex, patently unfair, 
     and highly inefficient. Its complexity distorts decisions to 
     work, save, and invest, which leads to slower economic 
     growth, lower wages, and less job creation. The House 
     amendment proposes to correct the notorious complexity, 
     unfairness, and inefficiency of U.S. taxes by calling for a 
     reformed tax code that is simpler and fairer and promotes 
     growth. A revamped tax code could raise just as much revenue 
     as the system in place today, but without the harmful tax 
     policies embedded in current law, such as the Affordable Care 
     Act. A restructured and more efficient tax code with a 
     broader tax base and lower tax rates also would spark greater 
     economic growth and create more jobs.
       The amendment's revenue projections--$3.459.5 billion in 
     fiscal year 2016 and $41.669.7 billion through fiscal year 
     2025--are built on such a tax reform model.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       The U.S. tax code is overly complicated, inefficient, and 
     archaic. The current structure hurts economic growth, 
     frustrates working Americans, and pushes American businesses 
     overseas. The conference agreement assumes that the tax-
     writing committees will adopt a tax reform proposal that 
     reduces marginal rates but broadens the tax base to create a 
     fair, efficient, competitive, and pro-growth tax regime that 
     is revenue neutral. Any revenue-neutral tax reform would 
     include a repeal of the harmful tax increases in the 
     President's health care law.
       The conference agreement calls for revenues of $3,470.7 
     billion in fiscal year 2016 ($2,676.7 billion on-budget, 
     $794.0 billion off-budget) and $41,750.5 billion over 10 
     years ($32,237.4 billion on-budget, $9,513.1 billion off-
     budget). The difference between the conference agreement 
     revenues and those of the Senate resolution and House 
     amendment is due to CBO's March reestimate at projected 
     revenues. The conference agreement contains no tax increases.

                 RECONCILIATION AND REPORT SUBMISSIONS

       The budget resolution conference agreement provides a path 
     for the committees of jurisdiction in the House and Senate 
     through reconciliation to repeal the Affordable Care Act with 
     its burdensome mandates and restrictions, a first step toward 
     introducing real, patient-centered health care reform.


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       Section 201 of the Senate resolution instructs the Finance 
     Committee and the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and 
     Pensions each to report, by July 31, 2015, changes in laws 
     within their jurisdictions to reduce the deficit by no less 
     than $1 billion over the 10-year period of fiscal years 2016 
     through 2025.
       Section 202 of the resolution prohibits a reconciliation 
     bill reported under section 201 from including a provision 
     that would increase the statutory debt limit. The prohibition 
     is enforced with a point of order that, if raised, would 
     require an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the Senate to 
     waive.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       Section 201 of the House amendment instructs 13 authorizing 
     committees to achieve specified amounts of deficit reduction 
     by a deadline of July 15, 2015.
       While the amendment instruction provides flexibility as to 
     how the authorizing committees may achieve these savings, it 
     assumes savings will be achieved through reductions in direct 
     spending. The amounts reconciled are intended to serve as a 
     floor on required savings, not a ceiling. The targets are for 
     the total of the 10-year period of fiscal years 2016 through 
     2025. These targets will provide the committees maximum 
     flexibility in their savings while ensuring the

[[Page H2560]]

     budget is balanced within the 10-year window.
       Each reconciled authorizing committee is directed to mark 
     up legislation meeting its reconciliation target and submit 
     legislation to the Committee of the Budget, consistent with 
     section 310 of the Budget Act, instead of reporting it 
     directly to the House. Other than submitting legislation to 
     the Committee on the Budget, committees are expected to 
     follow regular order in complying with House and Committee 
     rules related to markup procedures and reporting 
     requirements. The Committee on the Budget will then combine 
     all submissions and report the legislation, without 
     substantive revision, to the House.
       Section 202 of the House amendment authorizes the Chair of 
     the Committee on the Budget to: (1) use the baseline 
     underlying the Congressional Budget Office's [CBO's] Budget 
     and Economic Outlook: 2015 to 2025 (January 2015) when making 
     estimates of any bill or joint resolution, or any amendment 
     thereto or conference report thereon and (2) determine 
     whether to use any adjustments to the baseline, if made 
     subsequent to the adoption of this concurrent resolution, 
     when making such estimates. When making such estimates and 
     determining compliance of measures, the Chair of the 
     Committee on the Budget should only exercise this authority 
     if such estimates are inaccurate because the adjustments made 
     to the baseline are inconsistent with the assumptions 
     underlying the budgetary levels set forth in this concurrent 
     resolution. Inaccurate adjustments may include selected 
     adjustments for rulemaking, judicial actions, adjudication, 
     and interpretative rules that have major budgetary effects 
     and are inconsistent with the assumptions underlying the 
     budgetary levels set forth in this concurrent resolution. CBO 
     shall, upon the request of the Chair of the Committee on the 
     Budget, prepare an estimate based on the baseline 
     determination made by such Chair.
       Section 202 also stipulates that the authorizing committees 
     instructed to submit reconciliation legislation pursuant to 
     this concurrent resolution shall, in preparing submissions, 
     note and determine the most effective methods by which the 
     President's health care law shall be repealed.
       Additionally, section 202 authorizes the Chair of the 
     Committee on the Budget to file with the House appropriately 
     revised allocations under section 302(a) of the Budget Act 
     and revised functional levels and aggregates upon: (1) an 
     authorizing committee's submission to the Committee on the 
     Budget of legislation complying with its reconciliation 
     instructions pursuant to section 310(b) of the Budget Act and 
     (2) the submission of a conference report to the House. 
     Section 202 further stipulates that these revised aggregates 
     and allocations shall be considered to be the allocations and 
     aggregates established by the concurrent resolution on the 
     budget pursuant to section 310 of the Budget Act.
       Section 203 of the House amendment authorizes the Chair of 
     the Committee on the Budget to submit additional information 
     to help guide the authorizing committees, including suggested 
     increases in the amount of deficit reduction reconciled to 
     each authorizing committee.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       The conference agreement affirms the use of reconciliation 
     for the sole purpose of repealing the President's job-killing 
     health care law by instructing only those committees with 
     jurisdiction over the health-care-related provisions in the 
     Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (Public 
     Law 111-148) and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation 
     Act of 2010 (Public Law 111-152). Specifically, the Senate 
     Committees on Finance and Health, Education, Labor, and 
     Pensions, and the House Committees on Ways and Means, 
     Education and the Workforce, and Energy and Commerce all 
     received instructions to report changes in laws within their 
     jurisdictions to reduce the deficit by no less than $1 
     billion over the 10-year period of fiscal years 2016 through 
     2025.
       The instructions for Senate committees are as follows:

                         [Fiscal years 2016-25]
------------------------------------------------------------------------
                 Committee                    10-Year deficit reduction
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Finance...................................                $1,000,000,000
Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions....                $1,000,000,000
------------------------------------------------------------------------

       The Senate retains the Senate-only rule against a 
     reconciliation measure that increases the public debt limit. 
     The provision applies to reconciliation bills pursuant to 
     this concurrent resolution, and any amendment, amendments 
     between the Houses, and conference report thereon. The rule 
     may only be waived by two-thirds of the Senate.
       The instructions for the House are as follows:

                         [Fiscal years 2016-25]
------------------------------------------------------------------------
                 Committee                    10-Year deficit reduction
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Education and the Workforce...............                $1,000,000,000
Energy and Commerce.......................                $1,000,000,000
Ways and Means............................                $1,000,000,000
------------------------------------------------------------------------

       Reconciled committees in the Senate and the House of 
     Representatives are instructed to submit their 
     recommendations to their respective Budget Committees no 
     later than July 24, 2015.
       The House retains the House-passed provision clarifying 
     that in the House, for purposes of budget enforcement, the 
     Chairman shall use the baseline underlying the March 2015 
     update to CBO's Budget and Economic Outlook: 2015 to 2025. It 
     further grants the Chairman of the Budget Committee the 
     authority to determine whether to reflect CBO's ad hoc 
     adjustments to the baseline subsequent to the adoption of 
     this concurrent resolution.
       While committees determine the policies used to meet their 
     reconciliation targets, the conference report retains the 
     House position that the committees take note of the policy 
     statement in the conference report relating to the repeal of 
     the President's health care law.
       The conference report provides authority to the Chairman of 
     the Committee on the Budget of the House of Representatives 
     to make adjustments in this concurrent resolution for 
     committees that submit reconciliation recommendations and 
     meet their respective reconciliation targets.

                           BUDGET ENFORCEMENT

             Subtitle A--Budget Enforcement in Both Houses

     Point of Order against Legislation Increasing Long-Term 
         Deficits or Direct Spending


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       Section 402 of the Senate resolution extends the current 
     Senate point of order prohibiting the consideration of 
     legislation that would increase the on-budget deficit by more 
     than $5 billion in any of the 4 consecutive 10-year periods 
     beginning after the last year covered in the most recently 
     agreed to budget resolution. The prohibition is enforced with 
     a point of order that, if raised, could be waived with the 
     affirmative vote of three-fifths of Members, duly chosen and 
     sworn. Paragraph (d) provides an exception for any 
     legislation considered under the reserve fund in section 
     303(1)--repeal of the President's health care law.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       Section 407 of the House amendment prohibits the 
     consideration of any measure reported by an authorizing 
     committee that increases direct spending by $5 billion over 
     the long-term. The prohibition is enforced with a point of 
     order. Subsection (b) states the applicable periods for this 
     section are any of the 4 consecutive 10 fiscal year periods 
     beginning in fiscal year 2026.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       Section 3101 of the conference agreement extends the 
     Senate-passed provision to the House and includes an 
     exception in paragraph (d) for reserve funds in sections 
     4303(1), 4501, 4502, and 4503 of the conference agreement 
     relating to repeal of the President's health care law. In the 
     House the point of order lies against the bill increasing 
     direct spending over the period.
     Allocation for Overseas Contingency Operations/Global War on 
         Terrorism


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       Section 409 of the Senate resolution establishes a 
     mechanism allowing the Senate to review the designation for 
     overseas contingency operations [OCO] in fiscal years 2016 
     and 2017. Designations that would cause the total amount of 
     OCO spending in those years to exceed $58 billion and $59.5 
     billion, respectively, would be subject to a point of order, 
     which--if raised--would require 60 votes to waive. If 
     sustained, the offending provision of budget authority would 
     be stricken from the text, but the rest of the measure would 
     remain standing.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       Subsection 408(a) of the House amendment provides the 
     Committee on Appropriations with two separate OCO/GWOT 
     allocations for the purposes of Overseas Contingency 
     Operations/Global War on Terrorism under section 302(a) of 
     the Budget Act, which are included in this report in the 
     allocation tables.
       Subsection (b) stipulates that, for purposes of enforcing 
     the point of order under section 302(f) of the Budget Act, 
     the ``first fiscal year'' and the ``total of fiscal years'' 
     refer to fiscal year 2016 only. This separate allocation is 
     the exclusive allocation for OCO/GWOT under section 302(a) of 
     the Budget Act. It also stipulates that section 302(c) of the 
     Budget Act does not apply to this separate allocation. 
     Subsection (c) stipulates that new budget authority or 
     outlays counting toward the allocation established by 
     subsection (a) shall be designated pursuant to section 
     251(b)(2)(A)(ii) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit 
     Control Act of 1985.
       Subsection (d) prohibits any adjustment under section 
     314(a) of the Budget Act if an adjustment would be made under 
     section 251(b)(2)(A)(ii) of BBEDCA for fiscal year 2016.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       Section 3102 of the conference agreement adopts an approach 
     to Overseas Contingency Operations [OCO] funding similar to 
     the House amendment. A separate 302(a) allocation is provided 
     to each of the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations 
     for the OCO/Global War on Terrorism. Any appropriation 
     designated for OCO under Section 251(b)(2)(A)(ii) of the 
     Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 
     would be scored against the 302(a) allocation to the 
     Committees on Appropriations. The OCO allocation may be 
     subdivided into 302(b) sub-allocations and is enforceable 
     under section 302(f) on the Congressional Budget Act.
     Point of Order against Certain Changes in Mandatory Programs


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       Section 406 of the Senate resolution phases out the use of 
     certain ``CHIMPs'' (changes in mandatory programs) in 
     appropriation bills that reduce budget authority but do not 
     result in any net outlay savings. For fiscal

[[Page H2561]]

     year 2016, the limit on this type of CHIMP is $19 billion, 
     the amount contained in fiscal year 2015 appropriations 
     measures. Thereafter, the limit is reduced by 20 percent per 
     year until fiscal year 2021, when CHIMPs that fail to reduce 
     net outlays are no longer to be permitted in appropriation 
     measures. The limit is enforced with a point of order that, 
     if raised, would require the affirmative vote of three-fifths 
     of Members, duly chosen and sworn.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The House amendment does not contain any provisions 
     relating to CHIMPs.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       Section 3103 of the conference agreement gradually reduces 
     the amount of certain changes in mandatory programs [CHIMPs] 
     permitted in appropriations bills from a total of $19.1 
     billion in fiscal year 2016 to $15 billion in fiscal year 
     2019. This reduction would apply only to those CHIMPs that 
     (a) would have been classified as affecting direct spending 
     or receipts under section 252 of BBEDCA (as in effect prior 
     to September 30, 2002) if the provision was included in 
     legislation other than an appropriations bill or joint 
     resolution, and (b) reduce budget authority but do not result 
     in any net outlay savings over the 10-year budget enforcement 
     window. The reduction in this type of CHIMP is enforced in 
     the Senate with a point of order prohibiting consideration of 
     a bill or joint resolution making appropriations for a full 
     fiscal year, (or an amendment thereto or conference report 
     thereon that would cause the total amount of this type of 
     CHIMP enacted in a fiscal year to exceed a specific amount:
       Fiscal year 2016  $19,100,000,000
       Fiscal year 2017  $19,100,000,000
       Fiscal year 2018  $17,000,000,000
       Fiscal year 2019  $15,000,000,000
       The Senate point of order, if raised, would require the 
     affirmative vote of three-fifths of the Members, duly chosen 
     and sworn, to waive. In the House the point of order lies 
     against the individual provision except for an amendment or 
     conference report in which case it lies against the entire 
     amendment or conference report. For purposes of this section, 
     the total budget authority of CHIMPs shall be determined on 
     the basis of estimates provided by the Chairman of the 
     Committee on the Budget of the applicable House of Congress.
     Point of Order against Provisions that Constitute Changes in 
         Mandatory Programs Affecting the Crime Victims Fund


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       Section 410 of the Senate resolution prohibits Senate 
     consideration of any measure that includes CHIMPs that affect 
     the Crime Victims Fund [CVF]. The prohibition would be 
     enforced with a point of order that, if raised, would require 
     the affirmative vote of three-fifth of Members, duly chose 
     and sworn, to waive. If sustained, the offending provision(s) 
     would be stricken, but the rest of the measure would remain 
     standing.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The House amendment does not contain any provisions 
     relating to CHIMPs affecting the Crime Victims Fund.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       Section 3104 of the conference agreement limits the use of 
     CHIMPs that affect the CVF to $10.8 billion in fiscal year 
     2016. This rule only applies to appropriations measures that 
     provide full-year funding for a fiscal year. The reduction in 
     the CVF CHIMP is enforced with a ``surgical strike'' point of 
     order. If a point of order is raised and sustained against a 
     provision containing a CHIMP affecting the CVF that would 
     cause the total value of all such CHIMPS enacted in relation 
     to a fiscal year to exceed the limit, the provision would be 
     stricken from the measure, but the rest of the bill would 
     remain standing. In the House, in the case of an amendment or 
     conference report, the point of order would lie against the 
     entire measure.
       For purposes of this section, the absolute of the total 
     budget authority of CHIMPs shall be determined on the basis 
     of estimates provided by the Chairman of the Committee on the 
     Budget of the applicable House of Congress.
       Section 3104 of the conference agreement also directs the 
     Committees on the Budget and Committees on Appropriations of 
     the House and Senate to work with other committees of 
     jurisdiction to review the enforcement procedures for CHIMPs 
     in appropriations bills--especially those affecting the CVF--
     and to make a joint recommendation that can be included in 
     subsequent concurrent resolutions on the budget.
     Fair-Value Credit Estimates


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       For legislation affecting Federal direct loan and loan-
     guarantee programs, section 412 of the Senate resolution 
     directs CBO to provide in its cost estimates an assessment 
     using fair-value--alongside those estimates prepared under 
     the Federal Credit Reform Act. In the Senate, cost estimates 
     prepared using fair-value would be provided for informational 
     purposes only.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       Subsection 406(a) of the House amendment requires, upon the 
     request of the Chairman or Ranking Member of the Committee on 
     the Budget, that CBO estimates for any measure under the 
     terms of Title V of the Budget Act to include an estimate of 
     the current actual or estimated market values representing 
     the ``fair value'' of assets and liabilities affected by such 
     measure.
       Subsection (b) requires that, whenever CBO prepares an 
     estimate of the cost of legislation with a cost related to 
     housing, residential mortgage, or student loan programs, 
     under the Federal Credit Reform Act of 1990, the estimate 
     include an estimate of the ``fair value'' of the assets and 
     liabilities affected.
       Subsection (c) permits the Chair of the Committee on the 
     Budget to use these supplemental estimates to determine 
     whether legislation is within the levels of the budget 
     resolution and complies with other budgetary controls.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       Section 3105 of the conference agreement adopts an approach 
     to fair-value estimates similar to the House amendment. At 
     the request of the Chairman of the Budget Committee of the 
     applicable House, CBO shall prepare, when practicable, a 
     fair-value estimate of measures providing or modifying loan 
     and loan guarantee programs scored under the Federal Credit 
     Reform Act. Under this section, CBO is required to provide 
     these fair-value estimates for housing, residential mortgage, 
     and student loan programs. This scoring rule applies to 
     bills, joint resolutions, motions, amendments, amendments 
     between the Houses, and conference reports. Section 3105(c) 
     authorizes the Chairman of the Committee on the Budget of the 
     House of Representatives to use these supplemental estimates 
     for the purposes of determining budget-related points of 
     order. In the Senate, any fair-value estimates produced under 
     this section may be used for informational purposes only.
     Scoring Rule for Currency Modernization


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       Section 414 of the Senate resolution requires CBO to 
     estimate the cost of transitioning from the dollar bill to 
     the dollar coin using net present value and to incorporate 
     the behavioral effects of that transition in its estimate.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The House amendment does not contain any provisions 
     relating to currency modernization.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       In section 3106 of the conference agreement, the House 
     joins the Senate in adopting the Senate-passed scoring rule 
     relating to currency modernization.
     Long-Term Scoring of Changes in Spending Limits and Extension 
         of Highway Programs


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       Section 416 of the Senate resolution directs CBO to provide 
     long-term cost estimates for: (1) legislation that would 
     increase the statutory discretionary spending limits, and (2) 
     legislation that would transfer amounts from the General Fund 
     of the Treasury to the Highway Trust Fund. Under this rule, 
     CBO would provide estimates of the increased spending--and 
     the offsets--for the scoring window (fiscal years 2016 
     through 2025) as well as the 20 years beyond (fiscal years 
     2026 through 2045).


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The House amendment does not contain any provisions 
     relating to long-term scoring of changes in spending limits 
     and extension of highway programs.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       In section 3107 of the conference agreement, the House 
     joins the Senate in adopting the Senate-passed rule.
     Requiring Clearer Reporting of Projected Federal Spending and 
         Deficits


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       Section 417 of the Senate resolution requires CBO to 
     provide 30-year projections of three key budget aggregates--
     revenues, outlays, and deficits--in current dollars and as a 
     percent of GDP when CBO publishes its annual Budget and 
     Economic Outlook.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The House amendment does not contain any provisions 
     relating to clearer reporting of projected Federal spending 
     and deficits.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       In section 3108 of the conference agreement, the House 
     joins the Senate in adopting the reporting requirement.
     Congressional Budget Office Estimates of Measures with 
         Significant Outlay Effects


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       Section 419 of the Senate resolution requires CBO to 
     provide outyear estimates of legislation that would (1) 
     increase or decrease outlays by more than 0.25 percent of GDP 
     over the 10-year period of the enforcement window, or (2) 
     that would have the same significant impact on outlays, but 
     in the 10th year alone. In the event that the budgetary 
     effects of a measure are not sufficient to automatically 
     trigger the outyear cost estimates, the Chairman of the 
     Budget Committee has the authority to request an estimate.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The House amendment does not contain any provisions 
     relating to CBO estimates of measures with significant outlay 
     effects.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       In section 3109 of the conference agreement, the House 
     joins the Senate-passed rule regarding supplemental 
     estimates.

     Prohibiting the Use of Guarantee Fees as an Offset


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       Section 421 of the Senate resolution prohibits 
     consideration of legislation that increases or extends an 
     increase of any guarantee fees of the Federal National 
     Mortgage Association [FNMA] and the Federal Home Loan 
     Mortgage Corporation [FHLMC]. Guarantee fees are collected to 
     offset prospective FNMA and FHLMC credit losses, and using 
     these fees as an offset merely double-counts the funds 
     collected.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The House amendment does not contain any provisions 
     relating to CBO estimates of measures with significant outlay 
     effects.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       In section 3110 of the conference agreement, the House 
     joins the Senate rule prohibiting the use of guarantee fees 
     as an offset.
     Information for Congress and the Public about Projected 
         Federal Outlays, Revenues, and Deficits


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       Section 423 of the Senate resolution directs CBO to produce 
     a one-page executive summary of its annual Budget and 
     Economic Outlook that includes current-year and future-year 
     projections of key budget aggregates (total outlays, tax 
     expenditures, receipts, surpluses/deficits) and categories of 
     spending (total mandatory spending and total discretionary 
     spending; Social Security outlays, revenues, and 
     surpluses/deficits; and Medicare outlays, revenues, and 
     surpluses/deficits.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The House amendment does not contain any provisions 
     relating to information for Congress and the public about 
     projected Federal outlays, revenue and deficits.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

     Honest Accounting: Cost Estimates for Major Legislation to 
         Incorporate Macroeconomic Effects


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       Section 413 of the Senate resolution directs the Joint 
     Committee on Taxation and CBO to produce, alongside CBO's 
     conventional estimates, cost estimates that incorporate the 
     macroeconomic effects of major policy changes. These 
     estimates would be provided for informational purposes only.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       Sections 401(a) and (b) of the House amendment directs CBO 
     and the Joint Committee on Taxation, as applicable, to 
     incorporate in the cost estimates for major legislation, to 
     the extent practicable, the macroeconomic effects of such 
     legislation during fiscal year 2016.
       Subsection (c) stipulates that the macroeconomic estimates 
     include, to the extent practicable, a qualitative assessment 
     of the budgetary effects (including the variables referred to 
     above) of major legislation in the 20-fiscal-year period 
     beginning after the last fiscal year of the most recently 
     agreed-to budget resolution and an identification of the 
     assumptions and source data underlying the estimate.
       Subsection (d) defines major legislation to include 
     legislation that causes a gross budgetary effect in any 
     fiscal year covered by the budget resolution equal to or 
     greater than 0.25 percent of the current projected GDP of the 
     United States for that fiscal year. Under this subsection, 
     the Chairman of the Committee on the Budget of the House or 
     Senate and the Chair of the Joint Committee on Taxation, as 
     applicable, may designate bills providing direct spending as 
     major legislation for which estimates would incorporate 
     macroeconomic effects.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       Section 3112 of the conference agreement directs the Joint 
     Committee on Taxation and CBO to produce, alongside CBO's 
     conventional estimates, cost estimates that incorporate the 
     macroeconomic effects of major policy changes. Subsection (c) 
     defines major legislation as a bill, resolution, conference 
     report, or treaty causing an increase or decrease in 
     revenues, direct spending, or deficits in any fiscal year 
     covered by the budget resolution equal to or greater than 
     0.25 percent of the projected GDP for that year or equal to 
     or greater than $15 billion for that year for treaties. In 
     applying these thresholds, CBO and JCT are required to look 
     at the gross budgetary effects of the legislation before 
     incorporating macroeconomic effects and not including timing 
     shifts.
       In carrying out this requirement, the managers intend that 
     CBO and JCT review provisions that have a significant 
     budgetary effect. Thus, the test is whether the absolute 
     value of the effect of any provision in the legislation has a 
     budgetary effect larger than the threshold, or if the sum of 
     the absolute values of the effects of the provisions on 
     revenues and on direct spending exceeds the threshold, rather 
     than whether the legislation taken as a whole equals or 
     exceeds such threshold values when all of the conventionally 
     estimated costs of the provisions are netted out.
       In the Senate, these estimates would be provided for 
     informational purposes only. In the House, the Chair of the 
     Committee on the Budget shall exercise the authority granted 
     under subsection (c)(1)(B)(ii), in collaboration with the 
     appropriate Chair or Vice Chair of the Joint Committee on 
     Taxation, to designate a revenue measure as major 
     legislation.

              Subtitle B--Budget Enforcement in the Senate

     Extension of Enforcement of Budgetary Points of Order in the 
         Senate


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       Section 401(a) of the Senate resolution extends several 
     supermajority points of order created in the Congressional 
     Budget Act. These provisions will expire at the end of fiscal 
     year 2016. Subsection (b) repeals the sunset of the Senate 
     Pay-As-You-Go point of order established in section 201 S. 
     Con. Res. 21 (110th Congress), the fiscal year 2008 
     concurrent resolution on the budget. Subsection (c) repeals 
     the sunset of the short-term deficits point of order 
     established in section 404 of S. Con. Res. 13 (111th 
     Congress), the fiscal year 2010 concurrent resolution on the 
     budget.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The House-passed resolution does not contain a comparable 
     provision on Senate enforcement of supermajority points of 
     order.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       Section 3201 of the conference agreement adopts the Senate 
     language as a Senate-only provision.
     Point of Order against Advance Appropriations


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       As in past years, section 403 of the Senate resolution 
     provides a supermajority point of order in the Senate against 
     appropriations in fiscal year 2016 bills that would become 
     effective in any year after fiscal year 2016, and against 
     appropriation bills in fiscal year 2017 that would first 
     become available in any year after fiscal year 2017. It does 
     not apply to appropriations for the Corporation for Public 
     Broadcasting or Department of Veterans Affairs for the 
     Medical Services, Medical Support and Compliance, and Medical 
     Facilities accounts of the Veterans Health Administration. It 
     provides an exemption up to $28.852 billion (the same level 
     as provided for fiscal years 2014 and 2015 in the Bipartisan 
     Budget Act of 2013, P.L. 113-67) for accounts identified in 
     the joint explanatory statement of managers.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       Section 405 of the House amendment provides a limit on 
     appropriations that would become effective in fiscal year 
     2017. Subsection (a) prohibits the consideration of any 
     general or continuing appropriations measure from making 
     advance appropriations unless the appropriation is included 
     in a list of exceptions.
       Subsection (b) specifies the list of excluded accounts, 
     which may receive advance appropriations, are referred to in 
     this report or joint explanatory statement, as applicable, in 
     the section designated as ``Accounts Identified for Advance 
     Appropriations.''
       Subsection (c) sets an overall limit for allowable advance 
     appropriations for fiscal year 2017. It permits advance 
     appropriations of up to $63.271 billion for fiscal year 2017 
     for the veterans accounts referenced in subsection (b) and 
     referred to in this report. It also allows up to $28.852 
     billion in advance appropriations for other accounts 
     referenced in subsection (b) and referred to in this report.
       Subsection (d) defines an advance appropriation as any new 
     discretionary budget authority provided in a bill, joint 
     resolution, amendment, or conference report making general or 
     continuing appropriations for a fiscal year following fiscal 
     year 2016.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       Under the conference agreement, the Senate (in section 
     3202) and the House (in section 3304) retain their respective 
     limits on advance appropriations.

       Section 425(a) of the Congressional Budget Act prohibits 
     the consideration of legislation in the Senate that would 
     impose unfunded Federal mandates on State and local 
     governments above a certain limit, enforced with a point of 
     order. Section 404 of the Senate resolution increases the 
     vote threshold needed to waive that point of order from a 
     simple majority to three-fifths of Members, duly chosen and 
     sworn.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The House amendment does not contain a comparable provision 
     relating to unfunded mandates.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       Section 405 of the Senate resolution restores the equal 
     treatment of all reconciliation bills consistent with budget 
     law prior to 2008 by repealing the point of order prohibiting 
     consideration of reconciliation bills that increase the 
     deficit found in section 202(a) of S. Con. Res. 21, the 
     fiscal year 2008 budget resolution.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       Section 410(a)(3) of the House amendment would--for 
     purposes of a reconciliation bill reported pursuant to this 
     concurrent resolution on the budget--temporarily suspend the 
     application of the point of order prohibiting consideration 
     of reconciliation bills that increase the deficit, found in 
     section 202(a) of S. Con. Res. 21, the fiscal year 2008 
     budget resolution.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       Section 3204 of the conference agreement adopts the Senate 
     language relating to the point of order against certain 
     reconciliation bills.
     Prohibition on Agreeing to Legislation without a Score


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       Section 407 of the Senate resolution prohibits a vote on 
     passage of a bill or resolution unless the CBO cost estimate 
     required for that measure (pursuant to section 402 of the 
     Congressional Budget Act) is available on CBO's website at 
     least 28 hours before a vote on final passage. The 
     prohibition is enforced with point of order that, if raised, 
     would require the affirmative vote of three-fifths of 
     Members, duly chosen and sworn, to waive.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The House amendment does not contain a comparable provision 
     relating to agreeing to legislation without a score.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       Section 3205 of the conference agreement adopts the Senate 
     language relating to agreeing to legislation without a score 
     as a Senate-only provision.
     Protecting the Savings in Reported Reconciliation Bills


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       In the House, amendments to a reconciliation bill must be 
     deficit-neutral with respect to the reported savings in the 
     bill, not the instructed savings in the affiliated budget 
     resolution. The House rule ensures that if a reconciliation 
     bill exceeds its fiscal target, those ``extra'' savings will 
     be used for deficit reduction, not to increase spending. 
     Section 408 of the Senate resolution applies the House rule 
     in the Senate.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The House does not have a comparable provision relating to 
     the reported savings in a reconciliation bill (the rule 
     already applies in the House).


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       Section 3206 of the conference agreement adopts the Senate 
     language relating to the reported savings in a reconciliation 
     bill as a Senate-only provision.
     Scoring Rule for Certain Energy Contracts


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       Section 415 of the Senate resolution directs CBO to score 
     energy savings performance contracts using net present 
     value--a method that more accurately represents the economic 
     value of these transactions.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The House amendment does not have a comparable provision 
     relating to scoring energy savings performance contracts.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       Section 3207 of the conference agreement adopts the Senate 
     language on energy savings performance contracts as a Senate-
     only provision.
       In section 3305 of the conference agreement, the House 
     agrees to assess the implementation of section 3207 through a 
     collaborative assessment, in conjunction with the Senate and 
     CBO, of the appropriate scorekeeping methodology for 
     evaluating the budgetary effects of this type of energy 
     contract.
     Adjustment for Wildfire Suppression Funding


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       If a bill becomes law that provides a new discretionary 
     spending cap adjustment for wildfire suppression, section 424 
     of the Senate resolution gives the Senate Budget Committee 
     Chairman the authority to adjust the 302(a) allocation to the 
     Appropriations Committee accordingly.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       The House amendment does not have a comparable provision 
     relating to wildfire suppression funding.


                         CONFERENCE AGREEEMENT

       Section 3208 of the conference agreement adopts the Senate 
     language as a Senate-only provision.

                 Subtitle C--Budget Enforcement in the
                        House of Representatives

     Limitation on Measures Affecting Social Security Solvency


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       The Senate resolution does not have a comparable provision 
     relating to Social Security (a Senate point of order already 
     exists in section 311(a)(3) of the Congressional Budget Act).


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       Subsection 402(a) prohibits, during fiscal year 2016, 
     consideration in the House of Representatives or the Senate 
     of any legislation that reduces the actuarial balance of the 
     Federal Old-Age and Survivors Insurance [OASI] Trust Fund by 
     at least .01 percent of the present value of future 
     taxable payroll for the 75-year period included in the 
     most recent annual report of the board of trustees.
       Subsection (b) provides an exception if such legislation 
     would improve the actuarial balance of the combined balance 
     in the OASI Trust Fund and the Federal Disability Insurance 
     Trust Fund for the 75-year period utilized in the most recent 
     annual report of the board of trustees.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       The House point of order is not germane to a budget 
     resolution in the Senate. Section 3301 of the conference 
     agreement adopts the language of the House amendment as a 
     House-only provision.
     Limitation on Transfers from the General Fund to the Highway 
         Trust Fund


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       The reserve fund in section 309 of the Senate resolution 
     allows the Chairman of the Committee on the Budget in the 
     Senate to revise the allocations of one or more committees, 
     the aggregates, and other appropriate levels in this 
     resolution for one or more bills, joint resolutions, 
     amendments, amendments between Houses, or motions relating to 
     Federal investment in the infrastructure of the United 
     States, provided that such legislation shall not include 
     transfers from other trust funds but may include transfers 
     from the general fund that are offset, provided further that 
     such legislation would not increase the deficit either over 
     the period of the total of the fiscal years 2016 through 
     2020, or the period of the total of the fiscal years 2016 
     through 2025.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       Section 404 of the House amendment stipulates that, for 
     purposes of budget enforcement, transfers of funds from the 
     general fund of the Treasury to the Highway Trust Fund shall 
     be counted as new budget authority and outlays equal to the 
     amount of the transfer in the fiscal year in which the 
     transfer occurs.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       Under the conference agreement, the Senate (in section 
     4309) and the House (in section 3302) retain their respective 
     language on general fund transfers to the Highway Trust Fund.
     Adjustments for the Improved Control of Budgetary Resources


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       The Senate resolution does not have a comparable provision 
     relating to the improved control of budgetary resources.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       Subsection 409(a) of the House amendment authorizes the 
     chairman of the Budget Committee to reduce a committee's 
     allocation (other than the Committee on Appropriations) and 
     increase the Committee on Appropriations allocation of 
     discretionary spending for fiscal year 2016 if a committee 
     (other than Appropriations) reports legislation that 
     decreases direct spending in any fiscal year and authorizes 
     appropriations for the same purpose. Subsection (b) provides 
     the Chair of the Committee on the Budget with the authority 
     to determine and adjust, as applicable, the budgetary levels 
     of this concurrent resolution on the budget.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       Section 3303 of the conference agreement adopts the House 
     amendment language as a House-only provision.
     Point of Order against Advance Appropriations


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       As in past years, section 403 of the Senate resolution 
     provides a supermajority point of order in the Senate against 
     appropriations in fiscal year 2016 bills that would become 
     effective in any year after fiscal year 2016, and against 
     appropriation bills in fiscal year 2017 that would first 
     become available in any year after fiscal year 2017. It does 
     not apply to appropriations for the Corporation for

[[Page H2564]]

     Public Broadcasting or Department of Veterans Affairs for the 
     Medical Services, Medical Support and Compliance, and Medical 
     Facilities accounts of the Veterans Health Administration. It 
     provides an exemption up to $28.852 billion (the same level 
     as provided for fiscal years 2014 and 2015 in the Bipartisan 
     Budget Act of 2013, P.L. 113-67) for accounts identified in 
     the joint explanatory statement of managers.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       Section 405 of the House amendment provides a limit on 
     appropriations that would become effective in fiscal year 
     2017. Subsection (a) prohibits the consideration of any 
     general or continuing appropriations measure from making 
     advance appropriations unless the appropriation is included 
     in a list of exceptions.
       Subsection (b) specifies the list of excluded accounts, 
     which may receive advance appropriations, are referred to in 
     this report or joint explanatory statement, as applicable, in 
     the section designated as ``Accounts Identified for Advance 
     Appropriations.''
       Subsection (c) sets an overall limit for allowable advance 
     appropriations for fiscal year 2017. It permits advance 
     appropriations of up to $63.271 billion for fiscal year 2017 
     for the veterans accounts referenced in subsection (b) and 
     referred to in this report. It also allows up to $28.852 
     billion in advance appropriations for other accounts 
     referenced in subsection (b) and referred to in this report.
       Subsection (d) defines an advance appropriation as any new 
     discretionary budget authority provided in a bill, joint 
     resolution, amendment, or conference report making general or 
     continuing appropriations for a fiscal year following fiscal 
     year 2016.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       Under the conference agreement, the Senate (in section 
     3202) and the House (in section 3304) retain their respective 
     limits on advance appropriations.

     Submission of Findings for the Elimination of Waste, Fraud, 
         and Abuse


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       Section 431 of the Senate resolution directs Senate 
     committees to identify waste, fraud, abuse, and duplication 
     in Federal programs and to review matters identified by the 
     Government Accountability Office, or GAO (in GAO's annual 
     duplication report or its High Risk list) for 
     consideration by Congress. In addition, the resolution 
     asks committees to provide recommendations for improved 
     governmental performance in their annual views and 
     estimates reports.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       Section 301 of the House amendment includes reconciliation-
     like instructions to named House committees to submit to the 
     Committee on the Budget of the House of Representatives no 
     later than October 1, 2015, changes in laws within their 
     jurisdiction that would achieve a targeted amount of savings 
     from the elimination of waste, fraud, and abuse. Savings 
     targets for each committee would be published in the 
     Congressional Record by the Chairman of the Committee on the 
     Budget of the House.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       Section 3401 of the conference agreement adopts the 
     language in the Senate resolution with some modifications. 
     Subsection (a) of the conference agreement directs all 
     committees of the Senate and House of Representatives to 
     review programs within their jurisdiction and identify waste, 
     fraud, abuse, or duplication, and increase the use of 
     performance data to inform each committee's work.
       Section 3401(b) also directs all committees of the Senate 
     and House of Representatives to review applicable matters for 
     congressional consideration identified in the Office of 
     Inspector General semiannual reports and the Office of 
     Inspector General's list of unimplemented recommendations and 
     on the Government Accountability Office's High Risk list and 
     annual report to reduce program duplication.
       Section 3401(c) further directs all committees of the 
     Senate and House of Representatives, after completing the 
     oversight and performance reviews required under this 
     section, to include recommendations for improved governmental 
     performance in their annual views and estimates reports 
     submitted by the committees to the Committees on the Budget 
     of the Senate and House of Representatives, as applicable, 
     under section 301(d) of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974 
     (2 U.S.C. 632(d)).
     Budgetary Treatment of Administrative Expenses


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       Section 432 of the Senate resolution requires the joint 
     explanatory statement accompanying the conference report on 
     the budget resolution to include amounts for the 
     discretionary administrative expenses of the Social Security 
     Administration and the United States Postal Service--which 
     are subject to the discretionary spending caps--in the 
     allocation to the Appropriations Committee.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       Section 403(a) of the House amendment declares that the 
     administrative expenses of the Social Security Administration 
     and the United States Postal Service are reflected in the 
     allocation to the Committee on Appropriations even though 
     both are technically off-budget. This language is necessary 
     to ensure the Committee on Appropriations retains control 
     over administrative expenses through the annual 
     appropriations process. This budgetary treatment of 
     administrative expenses is based on the long-term practice of 
     the House and Senate Budget Committees.
       Subsection (b) requires the administrative expenses to be 
     included in the cost estimates for the relevant 
     appropriations measure, which are used to determine if a 
     measure exceeds the spending limits in the budget resolution 
     and, as a result, subject to points of order.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       Section 3402 of the conference agreement adopts the 
     language in the House resolution with a minor modification 
     that strikes the reference to the point of order in section 
     311 of the Congressional Budget Act.
     Application and Effect of Changes in Allocations and 
         Aggregates


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       Section 433 of the Senate resolution directs that (1) 
     adjustments of allocations and aggregates made under the 
     authority of a reserve fund or other directive will apply 
     while a measure is under consideration, take effect once the 
     measure is enacted, and be published in the Congressional 
     Record; (2) revisions to allocations and aggregates will be 
     considered as if contained in this budget resolution, for 
     enforcement purposes; and (3) Budget Committee estimates will 
     serve as the basis for determining new levels of budget 
     authority, outlays, direct spending, new entitlement 
     authority, revenues, deficits, and surpluses.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       Section 410(a) of the House-passed resolution sets forth 
     allocation and adjustment procedures required to accommodate 
     legislation provided for in this concurrent resolution. It 
     declares that these adjustments apply while the legislation 
     is under consideration and become permanent upon enactment of 
     the legislation. These adjustments must be printed in the 
     Congressional Record.
       Paragraph 410(a)(3) includes a provision temporarily 
     suspending the Senate point of order against certain 
     reconciliation bills.
       Section 410(b) stipulates that in the House of 
     Representatives, for purposes of this concurrent resolution 
     and budget enforcement, any legislation for which the Chair 
     of the Committee on the Budget of the House of 
     Representatives makes an adjustment or revision in the 
     allocations, aggregates, and other budgetary levels of this 
     concurrent resolution shall not be subject to the points of 
     order set forth in clause 10 of rule XXI of the Rules of the 
     House of Representatives (CUT-GO).


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       Section 3403 retains the Senate language but adopts House 
     subsection 410(b) pertaining to Rule XXI of the House of 
     Representatives (CUT-GO).
     Adjustments to Reflect Changes in Concepts and Definitions


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       Section 434 of the Senate resolution declares that in the 
     event Congress enacts a bill or joint resolution that changes 
     concepts or definitions, the Senate resolution provides the 
     Budget Committee Chairman with the authority to change levels 
     and allocations in this resolution, accordingly.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       Section 410 (a) of the House amendment declares that in the 
     event Congress enacts a bill or joint resolution that changes 
     concepts or definitions, the Senate resolution provides the 
     Budget Committee Chairman with the authority to change levels 
     and allocations in this resolution, accordingly

[[Page H2565]]

                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       Both the Senate and House resolutions include traditional 
     language giving the Chairman of the Budget Committee the 
     authority to make changes to the level and committee 
     allocations in the event legislation becomes law that changes 
     key budgetary concepts or definitions. In section 3404 of the 
     conference agreement, the House joins the Senate language 
     relating to changes in concepts and definitions.
     Exercise of Rulemaking Powers


                           SENATE RESOLUTION

       Section 435 of the Senate resolution declares that the 
     provisions in Title III of the resolution are promulgated 
     under the Senate's rulemaking power and shall be considered 
     part of the rules of the Senate.


                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       Section 411 of the House amendment affirms that the 
     adoption of the budget resolution is an exercise of the 
     House's rulemaking power and that the House has the 
     constitutional right to change these rules.


                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       In section 3405 of the conference agreement, the House 
     joins the Senate language relating to rulemaking powers of 
     this resolution


   PAY-AS-YOU-GO SCORECARD FOR THE SENATE REFLECTING LEVELS FOR THE 
                          CONFERENCE AGREEMENT

       Period of the current fiscal year, the budget year, and the 
     4 fiscal years following the budget year: $0.
       Period of the current fiscal year, the budget year, and the 
     9 fiscal years following the budget year: $0.

                             RESERVE FUNDS

       The Budget Committee does not have the authority to 
     authorize policy changes--that is the role of the authorizing 
     committees. Committees often make some of their policy 
     priorities known in their views and estimates letters, and 
     reserve funds are a way to accommodate those requests when 
     the specific spending and revenue contours of those policies 
     are unknown.
       Operatively, a reserve fund allows the Chairman of the 
     Budget Committee to revise committee allocations, budgetary 
     aggregates, and other appropriate levels in the budget 
     resolution to accommodate legislation described in the 
     reserve fund, provided the budgetary effects of that 
     legislation satisfy the requirements enumerated.

                            HOUSE AMENDMENT

       Section 501. Reserve fund for the repeal of the President's 
     health care law. Section 501 permits the Chair of the 
     Committee on the Budget to revise allocations of spending 
     authority and other budgetary levels for a measure that fully 
     repeals the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act 
     (Public Law 111-148) and the health care-related provisions 
     of the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 
     [HCERA 2010] (Public Law 111-152). These are the health care 
     bills enacted into law in 2010.
       Legislation repealing the health care laws must solely 
     achieve that purpose and may not include extraneous language, 
     whether such language has a budgetary effect or not. These 
     adjustments would not be available for legislation that only 
     partially repeals these laws. The reserve fund is intended to 
     only apply to the health care provisions and would not apply 
     to the repeal of the education-related provisions of HCERA 
     2010. The adjustments may be made for bills, amendments 
     thereto, or conference reports. Multiple measures may take 
     advantage of the reserve fund, as long as each is for the 
     specified purpose.
       An amendment (or a motion to recommit), if it qualifies 
     under the terms of this reserve fund, may be offered to an 
     unrelated measure, but should such a measure, as amended, be 
     returned to the House as a conference report or an amendment 
     between the Houses, no adjustments would be made if that 
     measure contained text unrelated to the purpose of this 
     reserve fund. Adjustments may be made for amendments meeting 
     the criteria, but the adjustment would not cover provisions 
     in the underlying bill unrelated to repealing these laws.
       A measure receiving an adjustment under the terms of this 
     reserve fund may be open for amendment, subject to the 
     special rule providing for its consideration, but the 
     amendment, if it does not meet the terms outlined in this 
     section, must be compliant with the Budget Act and the Rules 
     of the House without regard to the adjustments made to the 
     underlying measure.
       Section 502. Deficit-neutral reserve fund for promoting 
     real health care reform. Section 502 permits the Chair of the 
     Committee on the Budget to revise allocations of spending 
     authority, provided to committees of the House, and to adjust 
     other budgetary levels for a measure that promotes real 
     health care reform as long as the measure is deficit-neutral 
     for the period of fiscal years 2016 through 2025.
       Section 503. Deficit-neutral reserve fund related to the 
     Medicare provisions of the President's health care law.

     to revise allocations of spending authority provided to 
     committees of the House, and to adjust other budgetary levels

     Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111-
     148) or the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 
     2010 (Public Law 111-152), as long as the measure is deficit-
     neutral for the period of fiscal years 2016 through 2025.
       A measure that repeals only part of these Medicare spending 
     reductions is also eligible for these adjustments. A series 
     of bills, joint resolutions, amendments, or conference 
     reports may receive adjustments under this section, only 
     limited by the cumulative amount of the Medicare spending 
     reductions included in the public laws referenced, as 
     estimated by the Chair of the Committee on the Budget. Once 
     the limit is reached through enacted measures, no more 
     adjustments may be made under this reserve fund. The amount 
     necessary to repeal the Medicare spending cuts is a limit on 
     the adjustments that may be made under this reserve fund, but 
     as the House considers measures that meet these terms, the 
     amount is not reduced until the enactment of such measure 
     fulfilling this purpose.

     increase the deficit over the period of fiscal years 2016 
     through 2025.

     medical education. Section 505 permits the Chair of the 
     Committee on the Budget to revise the allocations of spending 
     authority provided to applicable committees and adjust other

     such measure does not increase the deficit over the period of 
     fiscal years 2016 through 2025.

     agreements. Section 506 permits the Chair of the Committee on 
     the Budget to revise the allocations of spending authority

     measures. Section 508 permits the Chair of the Committee on 
     the Budget to revise the allocations of spending authority 
     provided to the Committee on Ways and Means for legislation 
     that causes a decrease in revenue. The Chair of the Committee 
     on the Budget may adjust the allocations and aggregates in 
     this resolution if the measure does not increase the deficit 
     over the period of fiscal years 2016 through 2025. This 
     allows the Committee on Ways and Means to report legislation 
     that reduces revenue below the level provided for in this 
     resolution but only if it decreases outlays by an equal or 
     greater amount in the applicable period.

     budgetary levels in this resolution for a measure that 
     reforms, improves and updates, as determined by such Chair, 
     the Federal retirement system as long as such measure does 
     not increase the deficit over the period of fiscal years 2016 
     through 2025.

     House of Representatives and is a requirement for the 
     consideration of a concurrent resolution on the budget in the 
     114th Congress. It provides the average and estimated average 
     rate of growth in means-tested and non-means-tested direct 
     spending for the 10-year periods before and after fiscal year 
     2016, respectively, and proposes reforms of these two 
     categories and direct spending.

Notes: The average annual growth rate over the 2006-2015 period encompasses growth in outlays from the amount recorded in 2005 through the amount
  projected for 2015.
Data on spending for benefit programs in this table exclude administrative costs that are classified as discretionary but generally include
  administrative costs classified as mandatory.
SNAP = Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program; n.a. = not applicable.
Because October 1 fell on a weekend in 2006, 2007, and 2012, certain federal payments that were due on that date were instead made at the end of the
  preceding September and thus shifted into the previous fiscal year. Those shifts primarily affected outlays for Supplemental Security Income,
  veterans' compensation benefits and pensions, and Medicare.
 
a. The average annual growth rate reflects the program's growth from its inception in 2006 through 2015.
b. Differs from the amounts reported in Table 3-2 from The Budget and Economic Outlook: Fiscal Years 2015 to 2025 because it does not include payments
  to health insurance plans for risk adjustment (amounts paid to plans that attract less healthy enrollees) and reinsurance (amounts paid to plans that
  enroll individuals who end up with high costs). Spending for grants to states to establish exchanges is also excluded.
c. Does not include amounts that reduce tax receipts.
d. Includes the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program, the Child Support Enforcement program, the Child Care Entitlement program, and other
  programs that benefit children.
e. Includes mandatory spending designed to reduce the discretionary budget authority needed to support the maximum award level set in the appropriation
  act plus mandatory spending that, by formula, increases the total maximum award above the amount set in the appropriation act.
f. Does not include offsetting receipts.
g. Does not include outlays associated with federal interest payments, which are not considered part of mandatory spending

Notes: The projections shown here are the same as those reported in Congressional Budget Office, The Budget and Economic Outlook: Fiscal Years 2015 to
  2025 (January 2015). CBO recently updated its baseline projections as reported in Congressional Budget Office, Updated Budget Projections: 2015 to
  2025 (March 2015). Some of the projections are different in the March baseline, but at the request of the committee staff, the projections shown are
  from the January baseline.
The average annual growth rate over the 2016-2025 period encompasses growth in outlays from the amount projected for 2015 through the amount projected
  for 2025.
Projections of spending for benefit programs in this table exclude administrative costs that are classified as discretionary but generally include
  administrative costs classified as mandatory.
SNAP = Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.
Because October 1 will fall on a weekend in 2016, 2017, 2022, and 2023, certain federal payments that are due on that date will instead be made at the
  end of the preceding September and thus be shifted into the previous fiscal year.
Those shifts primarily affect outlays for Supplemental Security Income, veterans' compensation benefits and pensions, and Medicare.
 
a. Differs from the amounts reported in Table 3-2 from The Budget and Economic Outlook: Fiscal Years 2015 to 2025 because it does not include payments
  to health insurance plans for risk adjustment (amounts paid to plans that attract less healthy enrollees) and reinsurance (amounts paid to plans that
  enroll individuals who end up with high costs). Spending for grants to states to establish exchanges is also excluded.
b. Does not include amounts that reduce tax receipts.
c. Differs from the amounts reported on Table 3-2 from The Budget and Economic Outlook: Fiscal Years 2015 to 2025 because it does not include other tax
  credits that were included in that table.
d. Includes the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program, the Child Support Enforcement program, the Child Care Entitlement program, and other
  programs that benefit children.
e. Includes mandatory spending designed to reduce the discretionary budget authority needed to support the maximum award level set in the appropriation
  act plus mandatory spending that, by formula, increases the total maximum award above the amount set in the appropriation act.
f. Does not include offsetting receipts.
g. Does not include outlays associated with federal interest payments, which are not considered part of mandatory spending.
h. The discretionary baseline does not represent a projection of expected costs for the discretionary portion of the Pell Grant program. As with all
  other discretionary programs, the budget authority is calculated by inflating the budget authority appropriated for fiscal year 2015. Outlays for
  future years are based on those amounts of budget authority and also reflect a temporary surplus of budget authority provided in 2015.
