Reported to House amended, Part II (11/20/1991)

Amends the Internal Revenue Code to require the Secretary of the Treasury to take into account the amounts estimated to be transferred to the Presidential Election Campaign Fund (Fund) during the fiscal year before the one in which the presidential election involved occurs before determining that the Fund is insufficiently funded to satisfy the full entitlements of eligible candidates (thus triggering pro rata payment reductions to them).

Directs the Secretary to base deposits into the Presidential Primary Matching Payment Account on estimated Fund income.

Prohibits presidential and vice presidential candidates from receiving Fund assistance without a certification that any television commercial prepared or distributed by such candidate will readily permit closed captioning of the commercial's oral content by way of a specified broadcast technology.

Requires the Federal Election Commission to report to certain congressional committees updated estimates of Fund receipts, disbursements, and balances within seven calendar days after the monthly due date for Presidential candidate submissions for primary matching fund certifications.
