    Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States 
   allowing an item veto in appropriations bills and an item veto of 
       contract authority or taxation changes in any other bill.

    Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United 
States of America in Congress assembled (two-thirds of each House 
concurring therein), That the following article is proposed as an 
amendment to the Constitution of the United States, which shall be 
valid to all intents and purposes as part of the Constitution when 
ratified by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States 
within seven years after the date of its submission for ratification:

                              ``Article--

    ``The President shall have the power to disapprove in whole or in 
part any appropriation, any authority for the United States to enter 
into a contract, or any change in the rate or incidence of taxation on 
any special class of taxpayers and approve any other provision in the 
same bill. In such case he shall, in signing the bill, designate the 
appropriations, contract authority, or tax provisions disapproved, and 
shall return a copy of such disapproved appropriations, contract 
authority, or tax provisions, with his objections, to the House in 
which the bill shall have originated; and the same proceedings shall 
then be had as in the case of other bills disapproved by the 
President.''.
