amended by striking paragraph (2).
    (b) Adjustment of State Ceiling for Increases in Cost-of-Living.--
Subsection (d) of section 146 of such Code is amended by inserting 
after paragraph (1) the following new paragraph:
            ``(2) Cost-of-living adjustment.--
                    ``(A) In general.--In the case of a calendar year 
                after 1998, each of the dollar amounts contained in 
                paragraph (1) shall be increased by an amount equal 
                to--
                            ``(i) such dollar amount, multiplied by
                            ``(ii) the cost-of-living adjustment 
                        determined under section 1(f)(3) for such 
                        calendar year by substituting `calendar year

                            ``(i) $1 in the case of an adjustment of 
                        the $75 amount in paragraph (1)(A), and
                            ``(ii) $5 in the case of an adjustment of
