To create a legislative line item veto by requiring separate enrollment 
                   of items in appropriations bills.

    Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the 
United States of America in Congress assembled, That (a) the 
Impoundment Control Act of 1974 is amended by adding at the end thereof 
the following new title:

 ``TITLE XI--LEGISLATIVE LINE ITEM VETO SEPARATE ENROLLMENT AUTHORITY 
                       LEGISLATIVE LINE ITEM VETO

    ``Sec. 1101. (a)(1) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, 
when any general or special appropriation bill or any bill or joint 
resolution making supplemental, deficiency, or continuing 
appropriations passes both Houses of the Congress in the same form, the 
Secretary of the Senate (in the case of a bill or joint resolution 
originating in the Senate) or the Clerk of the House of Representatives 
(in the case of a bill or joint resolution originating in the House of 
Representatives) shall cause the enrolling clerk of such House to 
enroll each item of such bill or joint resolution as a separate bill or 
joint resolution, as the case may be.
    ``(2) A bill or joint resolution that is required to be enrolled 
pursuant to paragraph (1)--
            ``(A) shall be enrolled without substantive revision;
            ``(B) shall conform in style and form to the applicable 
        provisions of chapter 2 of title 1, United States Code (as such 
        provisions are in effect on the date of the enactment of this 
        title); and
            ``(C) shall bear the designation of the measure of which it 
        was an item prior to such enrollment, together with such other 
        designation as may be necessary to distinguish such bill or 
        joint resolution from other bills or joint resolutions enrolled 
        pursuant to paragraph (1) with respect to the same measure.
    ``(b) A bill or joint resolution enrolled pursuant to subsection 
(a)(1) with respect to an item shall be deemed to be a bill under 
clauses 2 and 3 of section 7 of article 1 of the Constitution of the 
United States and shall be signed by the presiding officers of both 
Houses of the Congress and presented to the President for approval or 
disapproval (and otherwise treated for all purposes) in the manner 
provided for bills and joint resolutions generally.
    ``(c) For purposes of this concurrent resolution, the term `item' 
means any numbered section and any unnumbered paragraph of--
            ``(1) any general or special appropriation bill; and
            ``(2) any bill or joint resolution making supplemental, 
        deficiency, or continuing appropriations.''.
    (b) The amendment made by subsection (a) shall apply to bills and 
joint resolutions agreed to by the Congress during the two-calendar-
year period beginning with the date of the enactment of this Act.
