SEC. 402. EMERGENCY LEGISLATION.

    (a) Exemption of Overseas Contingency Operations.--In the House, if 
a bill or joint resolution is reported, or an amendment is offered 
thereto or a conference report is filed thereon, that makes 
supplemental appropriations for fiscal year 2005 for contingency 
operations related to the global war on terrorism, then the new budget 
authority, new entitlement authority, outlays, and receipts resulting 
therefrom shall not count for purposes of sections 302, 303, and 401 of 
the Congressional Budget Act of 1974 for the provisions of such measure 
that are designated pursuant to this subsection as making 
appropriations for such contingency operations.
    (b) Exemption of Emergency Provisions.--In the House, if a bill or 
joint resolution is reported, or an amendment is offered thereto or a 
conference report is filed thereon, that designates a provision as an 
emergency requirement pursuant to this section, then the new budget 
authority, new entitlement authority, outlays, and receipts resulting 
therefrom shall not count for purposes of sections 302, 303, 311, and 
401 of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974.
    (c) Designations.--
            (1) Guidance.--In the House, if a provision of legislation 
        is designated as an emergency requirement under subsection (b), 
        the committee report and any statement of managers accompanying 
        that legislation shall include an explanation of the manner in 
        which the provision meets the criteria in paragraph (2). If 
        such legislation is to be considered by the House without being 
        reported, then the committee shall cause the explanation to be 
        published in the Congressional Record in advance of floor 
        consideration.
            (2) Criteria.--
                    (A) In general.--Any such provision is an emergency 
                requirement if the underlying situation poses a threat 
                to life, property, or national security and is--
                            (i) sudden, quickly coming into being, and 
                        not building up over time;
                            (ii) an urgent, pressing, and compelling 
                        need requiring immediate action;
                            (iii) subject to subparagraph (B), 
                        unforeseen, unpredictable, and unanticipated; 
                        and
                            (iv) not permanent, temporary in nature.
                    (B) Unforeseen.--An emergency that is part of an 
                aggregate level of anticipated emergencies, 
                particularly when normally estimated in advance, is not 
                unforeseen.

              OF 1990.

the Congressional Budget Act of 1974 and section 13301 of the Budget

Administration.

              AGGREGATES.

            (3) be published in the Congressional Record as soon as 
        practicable.
    (b) Effect of Changed Allocations and Aggregates.--Revised 
allocations and aggregates resulting from these adjustments shall be 
considered for the purposes of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974 as 
allocations and aggregates contained in this resolution.
    (c) Budget Committee Determinations.--For purposes of this

            (1) the levels of new budget authority, outlays, direct 
        spending, new entitlement authority, revenues, deficits, and 
        surpluses for a fiscal year or period of fiscal years shall be

                      TITLE V--SENSE OF THE HOUSE

SEC. 501. SENSE OF THE HOUSE ON SPENDING ACCOUNTABILITY.

    It is the sense of the House that--
            (1) authorizing committees should actively engage in 
        oversight utilizing--
                    (A) the plans and goals submitted by executive 
                agencies pursuant to the Government Performance and 
                Results Act of 1993; and
                    (B) the performance evaluations submitted by such 
                agencies (that are based upon the Program Assessment 
                Rating Tool which is designed to improve agency 
                performance);
        in order to enact legislation to eliminate waste, fraud, and 
        abuse to ensure the efficient use of taxpayer dollars;
            (2) all Federal programs should be periodically 
        reauthorized and funding for unauthorized programs should be 
        level-funded in fiscal year 2005 unless there is a compelling 
        justification;
            (3) committees should submit written justifications for 
        earmarks and should consider not funding those most egregiously 
        inconsistent with national policy;
            (4) the fiscal year 2005 budget resolution should be 
        vigorously enforced and legislation should be enacted 
        establishing statutory limits on appropriations and a PAY-AS-
        YOU-GO rule for new and expanded entitlement programs; and
            (5) Congress should make every effort to offset nonwar-
        related supplemental appropriations.

SEC. 502. SENSE OF THE HOUSE ON ENTITLEMENT REFORM.

    (a) Findings.--The House finds that welfare was successfully 
reformed through the application of work requirements, education and 
training opportunity, and time limits on eligibility.
    (b) Sense of the House.--It is the sense of the House that 
authorizing committees should--
            (1) systematically review all means-tested entitlement 
        programs and track beneficiary participation across programs 
        and time;
            (2) enact legislation to develop common eligibility 
        requirements for means-tested entitlement programs;
            (3) enact legislation to accurately rename means-tested 
        entitlement programs;
            (4) enact legislation to coordinate program benefits in 
        order to limit to a reasonable period of time the Government 
        dependency of means-tested entitlement program participants;
            (5) evaluate the costs of, and justifications for, 
        nonmeans-tested, nonretirement-related entitlement programs; 
        and
            (6) identify and utilize resources that have conducted 
        cost-benefit analyses of participants in multiple means- and 
        nonmeans-tested entitlement programs to understand their 
        cumulative costs and collective benefits.
            Attest:

                                                                          Clerk.
