      (3) The provisions of this subsection shall be carried out--
            (A) by the Administrator of General Services for any Federal

    Sec. 637. <<NOTE: Taxes. 26 USC 7801 note.>> National Commission on 
Restructuring the Internal Revenue Service.--
      (a) Findings.--The Congress finds the following:
            (1) While the budget for the Internal Revenue Service 
        (hereafter referred to as the ``IRS'') has risen from $2.5 
        billion in fiscal year 1979 to $7.3 billion in fiscal year 1996, 
        tax returns processing has not become significantly faster, tax 
        collection rates have not significantly increased, and the 
        accuracy and timeliness of taxpayer assistance has not 
        significantly improved.
            (2) To date, the Tax Systems Modernization (TSM) program has 
        cost the taxpayers $2.5 billion, with an estimated cost of $8 
        billion. Despite this investment, modernization efforts were 
        recently described by the GAO as ``chaotic'' and ``ad hoc''.
            (3) While the IRS maintains that TSM will increase 
        efficiency and thus revenues, Congress has had to appropriate 
        additional funds in recent years for compliance initiatives in 
        order to increase tax revenues.
            (4) Because TSM has not been implemented, the IRS continues 
        to rely on paper returns, processing a total of 14 billion 
        pieces of paper every tax season. This results in an extremely 
        inefficient system.
            (5) This lack of efficiency reduces the level of customer 
        service and impedes the ability of the IRS to collect revenue.
            (6) The present status of the IRS shows the need for the 
        establishment of a Commission which will examine the 
        organization of IRS and recommend actions to expedite the 
        implementation of TSM and improve service to taxpayers.
      (b) Composition of the Commission.--
            (1) Establishment.--To carry out the purposes of this 
        section, there is established a National Commission on 
        Restructuring the Internal Revenue Service (in this section 
        referred to as the ``Commission'').
            (2) Composition.--The Commission shall be composed of 
        thirteen members, as follows:
                    (A) <<NOTE: President.>> Five members appointed by 
                the President, two from the executive branch of the 
                Government, two from private life, and one from an 
                organization that represents a substantial number of 
                Internal Revenue Service employees.
                    (B) Two members appointed by the Majority Leader of 
                the Senate, one from Members of the Senate and one from 
                private life.
                    (C) Two members appointed by the Minority Leader of 
                the Senate, one from Members of the Senate and one from 
                private life.
                    (D) Two members appointed by the Speaker of the 
                House of Representatives, one from Members of the House 
                of Representatives and one from private life.
                    (E) Two members appointed by the Minority Leader of 
                the House of Representatives, one from Members of the 
                House of Representatives and one from private life.

                    (A) Appointment.--It is the sense of the Congress

                who have been appointed may meet and select a Chairman 
                who thereafter shall have the authority to begin the 
                operations of the Commission, including the hiring of 
                staff.
      (c) Functions of Commission.--
            (1) In general.--The functions of the Commission shall be--

                described in paragraph (2), and
                    (B) <<NOTE: Reports.>> to submit to the Congress a 
                final report of the results of the review, including 
                recommendations for restructuring the IRS.
