       ``(1) measure more accurately the costs of Federal credit

     discounting component and the risk component of a direct loan 
     or loan guarantee, or a modification thereof.
       ``(B) The Treasury discounting component shall be the 
     estimated long-term cost to the Government of a direct loan 
     or loan guarantee, or modification thereof, calculated on a 
     net present value basis, excluding administrative costs and 
     any incidental effects on governmental receipts or outlays.
       ``(C) The risk component shall be an amount equal to the 
     difference between--
       ``(i) the estimated long-term cost to the Government of a 
     direct loan or loan guarantee, or modification thereof, 
     estimated on a fair value basis, applying the guidelines set 
     forth by the Financial Accounting Standards Board in 
     Financial Accounting Standards #157, or a successor thereto,

     exercise by the borrower of an option included in the loan 
     contract.
       ``(E) The Treasury discounting component of a loan 
     guarantee shall be the net present value, at the time when 
     the guaranteed loan is disbursed, of the following estimated 
     cash flows:
       ``(i) Payments by the Government to cover defaults and 
     delinquencies, interest subsidies, essential preservation 
     expenses, or other payments.
       ``(ii) Payments to the Government including origination and

     guaranteed loan contract.
       ``(F) The cost of a modification is the sum of--
       ``(i) the difference between the current estimate of the 
     Treasury discounting component of the remaining cash flows 
     under the terms of a direct loan or loan guarantee and the 
     current estimate of the Treasury discounting component of the 
     remaining cash flows under the terms of the contract, as 
     modified; and
       ``(ii) the difference between the current estimate of the 
     risk component of the remaining cash flows under the terms of

       ``(G) In estimating Treasury discounting components, the 
     discount rate shall be the average interest rate on 
     marketable Treasury securities of similar duration to the 
     cash flows of the direct loan or loan guarantee for which the 
     estimate is being made.
       ``(H) When funds are obligated for a direct loan or loan 
     guarantee, the estimated cost shall be based on the current 
     assumptions, adjusted to incorporate the terms of the loan 
     contract, for the fiscal year in which the funds are 
     obligated.
       ``(6) The term `program account' means the budget account 
     into which an appropriation to cover the cost of a direct

     and from the Government resulting from direct loan 
     obligations or loan guarantee commitments made on or after 
     October 1, 1991.
       ``(8) The term `liquidating account' means the budget 
     account that includes all cash flows to and from the 
     Government resulting from direct loan obligations or loan

     that alters the estimated cost of an outstanding direct loan 
     (or direct loan obligation) or an outstanding loan guarantee 
     (or loan guarantee commitment) from the current estimate of 
     cash flows. This includes the sale of loan assets, with or 
     without recourse, and the purchase of guaranteed loans (or 
     direct loan obligations) or loan guarantees (or loan 
     guarantee commitments) such as a change in collection 
     procedures.
       ``(10) The term `current' has the same meaning as in

     Deficit Control Act of 1985.

     with the Director of the Congressional Budget Office.
       ``(d) Improving Cost Estimates.--The Director and the 
     Director of the Congressional Budget Office shall coordinate 
     the development of more accurate data on historical

[[Page S3870]]

     outstanding direct loans and loan guarantees to improve 
     estimates of costs. The Office of Management and Budget and 
     the Congressional Budget Office shall have access to all 
     agency data that may facilitate the development and 
     improvement of estimates of costs.
       ``(e) Historical Credit Programs Costs.--The Director shall 
     review, to the extent possible, historical data and develop 
     the best possible estimates of adjustments that would convert 
     aggregate historical budget data to credit reform accounting.

     ``SEC. 504. BUDGETARY TREATMENT.

       ``(a) President's Budget.--Beginning with fiscal year 2017, 
     the President's budget shall reflect the costs of direct loan 
     and loan guarantee programs. The budget shall also include 
     the planned level of new direct loan obligations or loan 
     guarantee commitments associated with each appropriations 
     request. For each fiscal year within the five-fiscal year 
     period beginning with fiscal year 2017, such budget shall 
     include, on an agency-by-agency basis, subsidy estimates and 
     costs of direct loan and loan guarantee programs with and 
     without the risk component.
       ``(b) Appropriations Required.--Notwithstanding any other 
     provision of law, new direct loan obligations may be incurred 
     and new loan guarantee commitments may be made for fiscal

     in advance in an appropriation Act;
       ``(2) a limitation on the use of funds otherwise available 
     for the cost of a direct loan or loan guarantee program has 
     been provided in advance in an appropriation Act; or

     make new loan guarantee commitments, or modify outstanding 
     direct loans (or direct loan obligations) or loan guarantees 
     (or loan guarantee commitments) shall constitute new budget 
     authority in an amount equal to the cost of the direct loan 
     or loan guarantee in the fiscal year in which definite 
     authority becomes available or indefinite authority is used. 
     Such budget authority shall constitute an obligation of the 
     program account to pay to the financing account.
       ``(2) The outlays resulting from new budget authority for 
     the cost of direct loans or loan guarantees described in 
     paragraph (1) shall be paid from the program account into the 
     financing account and recorded in the fiscal year in which 
     the direct loan or the guaranteed loan is disbursed or its 
     costs altered.

     accounts shall be a means of financing.
       ``(e) Modifications.--An outstanding direct loan (or direct

     its costs unless budget authority for the additional cost has 
     been provided in advance in an appropriation Act.
       ``(f) Reestimates.--When the estimated cost for a group of 
     direct loans or loan guarantees for a given program made in a 
     single fiscal year is re-estimated in a subsequent year, the 
     difference between the reestimated cost and the previous cost 
     estimate shall be displayed as a distinct and separately 
     identified subaccount in the program account as a change in 
     program costs and a change in net interest. There is hereby 
     provided permanent indefinite authority for these re-
     estimates.
       ``(g) Administrative Expenses.--All funding for an agency's 
     administrative costs associated with a direct loan or loan 
     guarantee program shall be displayed as distinct and 
     separately identified subaccounts within the same budget 
     account as the program's cost.

     accounts by the Federal Financing Bank (hereinafter in this 
     subsection referred to as the `Bank') pursuant to section 
     405(b)) and the rate of interest paid to financing accounts 
     on uninvested balances in financing accounts shall be the 
     same as the rate determined pursuant to section 502(5)(G).
       ``(2) Loans.--For guaranteed loans financed by the Bank and 
     treated as direct loans by a Federal agency pursuant to 
     section 406(b)(1), any fee or interest surcharge (the amount

     determined pursuant to section 502(5)(G) that the Bank

     Federal Financing Bank Act of 1973 shall be considered a cash

     insurance and any recoveries to the Government shall be 
     included in the calculation of the cost.

     shall be construed to change the authority or the

     SEC. __. PREVENTING REGULATORY OVERREACH TO ENHANCE CARE 
                   TECHNOLOGY.

       (a) Findings; Sense of Congress.--
       (1) Findings.--Congress finds as follows:
       (A) The mobile health and mobile application economy was 
     created in the United States and is now being exported 
     globally, with the market expected to exceed $26,000,000,000 
     by 2017.
       (B) The United States mobile application economy is 
     responsible for nearly 500,000 new jobs in the United States.
       (C) Consumer health information technologies, including 
     smart phones and tablets, have the potential to transform 
     health care delivery through reduced systemic costs, improved 
     patient safety, and better clinical outcomes.
       (D) Clinical and health software innovation cycles evolve 
     and move faster than the existing regulatory approval 
     processes.
       (E) Consumers and innovators need a new risk-based 
     framework for the oversight of clinical and health software 
     that improves on the framework of the Food and Drug 
     Administration.
       (F) A working group convened jointly by the Food and Drug 
     Administration, the Federal Communications Commission, and 
     the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information 
     Technology identified in a report that there are several 
     major barriers to the effective regulation of health 
     information technology that cannot be alleviated without 
     changes to existing law.
       (2) Sense of congress.--It is the sense of Congress that--
       (A) the President and Congress must intervene to facilitate 
     interagency coordination across regulators that focuses 
     agency efforts on fostering health information technology and 
     mobile health innovation while better protecting patient 
     safety, improving health care, and creating jobs in the 
     United States;
       (B) the President and the Congress should work together to 
     develop and enact legislation that establishes a risk-based 
     regulatory framework for such clinical software and health 
     software that reduces regulatory burdens, fosters innovation, 
     and, most importantly, improves patient safety;
       (C) The National Institute of Standards and Technology 
     should be the Federal agency that has oversight over 
     technical standards used by clinical software; and
       (D) The National Institute of Standards and Technology, in 
     collaboration with the Federal Communications Commission, the 
     National Patient Safety Foundation, and the Office of the 
     National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, 
     should work on next steps, beyond current oversight efforts, 
     regarding health information technology, such as 
     collaborating with nongovernmental entities to develop 
     certification processes and to promote best practice 
     standards.
       (b) Clinical Software and Health Software.--
       (1) Definitions.--Section 201 of the Federal Food, Drug, 
     and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 321) is amended by adding at the

     structure or any function of the body of man or other 
     animals; and

     care provider in a health care setting.

     secondary software, to run or act as a mechanism for 
     connectivity, or to store data.

     data and directly diagnose a patient or user without the 
     intervention of a health care provider;

     a drug or device; or

       (2) Prohibition.--Subchapter A of chapter V of the Federal 
     Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 351 et seq.) is 
     amended by adding at the end the following:

       At the appropriate place, insert the following:
       Sec. ___. (a) The Senate finds the following:
       (1) On May 14, 2013, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax 
     Administration released the audit report, ``Inappropriate 
     Criteria Were Used to Identify Tax-Exempt Applications for 
     Review,'' detailing the inappropriate targeting of social 
     welfare organizations by the Internal Revenue Service 
     (referred to in this section as the ``IRS'').
       (2) There are on-going Congressional investigations of the 
     inappropriate targeting by the IRS of social welfare 
     organizations that necessitate the prompt sharing of all 
     requested documents.
       (3) On June 13, 2014, the IRS disclosed that a computer 
     failure reportedly resulted in a loss of emails sent or 
     received by former IRS Exempt Organizations Director Lois 
     Lerner for the period between January 1, 2009, and April 
     2011.
       (4) On June 16, 2014, it was exposed that the emails of 6 
     other IRS employees involved in the inappropriate targeting 
     were also reportedly unrecoverable.
       (5) A thorough investigation of the inappropriate targeting 
     of social welfare organizations by the IRS is essential to 
     ensure future confidence in the integrity of the United 
     States tax administration.
       (b) It is the sense of the Senate that--
       (1) the Commissioner of the IRS and other Administration 
     officials involved in the investigation of the inappropriate 
     targeting by the IRS of social welfare organizations should 
     provide full cooperation to the investigation; and
       (2) the on-going bipartisan Senate Finance Committee 
     investigation should be encouraged to include efforts to 
     uncover details related to the loss of emails and the 
     subsequent discovery and reporting of such loss.
