(2) the budget authority provided in any advance appropriation for fiscal year 2006 for any non-defense, non-homeland-security discretionary account in any prior fiscal year appropriation Act; and

(3) the contract authority provided in fiscal year 2006 for any program that is subject to a limitation contained in any fiscal year 2006 appropriation Act for any non-defense, non-homeland-security discretionary account.

(b) Non-defense, Non-homeland-Security discretionary account.—For purposes of subsection (a), the term “non-defense, non-homeland security discretionary account” means any discretionary account, other than—

(2) within each such account and item, to each program, project, and activity (with programs, projects, and activities as delineated in the appropriation Act or accompanying reports for the relevant fiscal year covering such account or item, or for accounts and items not included in appropriation Acts, as delineated in the most recently submitted President's budget).

(d) Subsequent appropriation laws.—In the case of any fiscal year 2006 appropriation Act enacted after the enactment of this section, any rescission required by subsection (a) shall take effect immediately after the enactment of such Act.
