Expedited Consideration of Proposed Rescissions Act of 1992 - Amends the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974 to allow the President to transmit to both Houses of the Congress, for expedited consideration, one or more special messages proposing to rescind all or part of any item of budget authority provided in an appropriation bill. Prohibits funds made available for obligation under this procedure from being proposed for rescission again under such procedure or the current procedure.

Sets forth House and Senate procedures for the expedited consideration of such a proposal.
