SEC. 201. PAY-AS-YOU-GO POINT OF ORDER IN THE SENATE.

    (a) Point of Order.--
        (1) In general.--It shall not be in order in the Senate to 
    consider any direct spending or revenue legislation that would 
    increase the on-budget deficit or cause an on-budget deficit for 
    either of the applicable time periods as measured in paragraphs (5) 
    and (6).
        (2) Applicable time periods.--For purposes of this subsection, 
    the term ``applicable time period'' means either--
            (A) the period of the current fiscal year, the budget year, 
        and the ensuing 4 fiscal years following the budget year; or
            (B) the period of the current fiscal year, the budget year, 
        and the ensuing 9 fiscal years following the budget year.
        (3) Direct spending legislation.--For purposes of this 
    subsection and except as provided in paragraph (4), the term 
    ``direct spending legislation'' means any bill, joint resolution, 
    amendment, motion, or conference report that affects direct 
    spending as that term is defined by, and interpreted for purposes 
    of, the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.
        (4) Exclusion.--For purposes of this subsection, the terms 
    ``direct spending legislation'' and ``revenue legislation'' do not 
    include--
            (A) any concurrent resolution on the budget; or
            (B) any provision of legislation that affects the full 
        funding of, and continuation of, the deposit insurance 
        guarantee commitment in effect on the date of enactment of the 
        Budget Enforcement Act of 1990.
        (5) Baseline.--Estimates prepared pursuant to this subsection 
    shall--
            (A) use the baseline surplus or deficit used for the most 
        recently adopted concurrent resolution on the budget; and
            (B) be calculated under the requirements of subsections (b) 
        through (d) of section 257 of the Balanced Budget and Emergency 
        Deficit Control Act of 1985 (as in effect prior to September 
        30, 2002) for fiscal years beyond those covered by that 
        concurrent resolution on the budget.
        (6) Prior surplus.--If direct spending or revenue legislation 
    increases the on-budget deficit or causes an on-budget deficit when 
    taken individually, it must also increase the on-budget deficit or 
    cause an on-budget deficit when taken together with all direct 
    spending and revenue legislation enacted since the beginning of the 
    calendar year not accounted for in the baseline under paragraph 
    (5)(A), except that direct spending or revenue effects resulting in 
    net deficit reduction enacted in any bill pursuant to a 
    reconciliation instruction since the beginning of that same 
    calendar year shall never be made available on the pay-as-you-go 
    ledger and shall be dedicated only for deficit reduction.

    Chair relating to any provision of this section shall be limited to

    the Senate, duly chosen and sworn, shall be required to sustain an 
    appeal of the ruling of the Chair on a point of order raised under

    (a) Senate.--
        (1) Authority to designate.--In the Senate, with respect to a 
    provision of direct spending or receipts legislation or 
    appropriations for discretionary accounts that Congress designates 
    as an emergency requirement in such measure, the amounts of new 
    budget authority, outlays, and receipts in all fiscal years 
    resulting from that provision shall be treated as an emergency 
    requirement for the purpose of this subsection.
        (2) Exemption of emergency provisions.--Any new budget 
    authority, outlays, and receipts resulting from any provision 
    designated as an emergency requirement, pursuant to this 
    subsection, in any bill, joint resolution, amendment, or conference 
    report shall not count for purposes of sections 302 and 311 of the 
    Congressional Budget Act of 1974 and sections 201, 203, and 207 of 
    this resolution (relating to pay-as-you-go in the Senate, long-term 
    deficits, and discretionary spending limits).
        (3) Designations.--If a provision of legislation is designated 
    as an emergency requirement under this subsection, 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 (6).
        (4) Definitions.--In this subsection, the terms ``direct 
    spending'', ``receipts'', and ``appropriations for discretionary 
    accounts'' mean any provision of a bill, joint resolution, 
    amendment, motion, or conference report that affects direct 
    spending, receipts, or appropriations as those terms have been 
    defined and interpreted for purposes of the Balanced Budget and 
    Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.
        (5) Point of order.--
            (A) In general.--When the Senate is considering a bill, 
        resolution, amendment, motion, or conference report, if a point 
        of order is made by a Senator against an emergency designation 
        in that measure, that provision making such a designation shall 
        be stricken from the measure and may not be offered as an 
        amendment from the floor.
            (B) Supermajority waiver and appeals.--
                (i) Waiver.--Subparagraph (A) may be waived or

            of the Chair relating to any provision of this paragraph 
            shall be limited to 1 hour, to be equally divided between, 
            and controlled by, the appellant and the manager of the 
            bill or joint resolution, as the case may be. An 
            affirmative vote of three-fifths of the Members of the 
            Senate, duly chosen and sworn, shall be required to sustain 
            an appeal of the ruling of the Chair on a point of order 
            raised under this paragraph.
            (C) Definition of an emergency designation.--For purposes 
        of subparagraph (A), a provision shall be considered an 
        emergency designation if it designates any item as an emergency 
        requirement pursuant to this subsection.
            (D) Form of the point of order.--A point of order under 
        subparagraph (A) may be raised by a Senator as provided in 
        section 313(e) of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974.
            (E) Conference reports.--When the Senate is considering a 
        conference report on, or an amendment between the Houses in 
        relation to, a bill, upon a point of order being made by any 
        Senator pursuant to this subsection, and such point of order 
        being sustained, such material contained in such conference 
        report shall be deemed stricken, and the Senate shall proceed 
        to consider the question of whether the Senate shall recede 
        from its amendment and concur with a further amendment, or 
        concur in the House amendment with a further amendment, as the 
        case may be, which further amendment shall consist of only that 
        portion of the conference report or House amendment, as the 
        case may be, not so stricken. Any such motion in the Senate 
        shall be debatable. In any case in which such point of order is 
        sustained against a conference report (or Senate amendment 
        derived from such conference report by operation of this 
        paragraph), no further amendment shall be in order.
        (6) Criteria.--
            (A) In general.--For purposes of this subsection, any 
        provision is an emergency requirement if the situation 
        addressed by such provision is--

            or beneficial);
                (ii) sudden, quickly coming into being, and not 
            building up over time;

            unpredictable, and unanticipated; and
                (v) 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.
        (7) Repeal.--In the Senate, section 402 of H. Con. Res. 95 
    (109th Congress), the concurrent resolution on the budget for 
    fiscal year 2006, shall no longer apply.
    (b) House.--In the House, if any bill or joint resolution, or 
amendment offered or considered as adopted or conference report 
thereon, that makes appropriations for discretionary amounts, and such

new budget authority and outlays resulting therefrom shall not be 
counted for the purposes of titles III and IV of the Congressional 
Budget Act of 1974.

            (A) In general.--After the reporting of a bill or joint

        Chairman of the Committee on the Budget shall make adjustments 
        set forth in paragraph (1) for the incremental new budget 
        authority in that measure and the outlays flowing from that

            resolution.
    (e) Oversight of Government Performance.--In the House and the 
Senate, all committees are directed to review programs within their 
jurisdictions to root out waste, fraud, and abuse in program spending, 
giving particular scrutiny to issues raised by Government 
Accountability Office reports. Based on these oversight efforts and 
committee performance reviews of programs within their jurisdictions, 
committees are directed to include recommendations for improved 
governmental performance in their annual views and estimates reports 
required under section 301(d) of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974 
to the Committees on the Budget.
    (f) Supplemental Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2007.--If

corresponding levels assumed in this resolution.

SEC. 208. APPLICATION OF PREVIOUS ALLOCATIONS IN THE SENATE.

    Section 7035 of Public Law 109-234 shall no longer apply in the 
Senate.

SEC. 209. SENATE POINT OF ORDER AGAINST PROVISIONS OF APPROPRIATIONS 
              LEGISLATION THAT CONSTITUTE CHANGES IN MANDATORY PROGRAMS 
              WITH NET COSTS.

    (a) In General.--In the Senate, it shall not be in order to 
consider any appropriations legislation, including any amendment 
thereto, motion in relation thereto, or conference report thereon, that 
includes any provision which constitutes a change in a mandatory 
program producing net costs, as defined in subsection (b), that would 
have been estimated as affecting direct spending or receipts under 
section 252 of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 
1985 (as in effect prior to September 30, 2002) were they included in 
legislation other than appropriations legislation. A point of order 
pursuant to this section shall be raised against such provision or 
provisions as described in subsections (e) and (f).
    (b) Changes in Mandatory Programs Producing Net Costs.--A provision 
or provisions shall be subject to a point of order pursuant to this 
section if--
        (1) the provision would increase budget authority in at least 1 
    of the 9 fiscal years that follow the budget year and over the 
    period of the total of the budget year and the 9 fiscal years 
    following the budget year;
        (2) the provision would increase net outlays over the period of 
    the total of the 9 fiscal years following the budget year; and
        (3) the sum total of all changes in mandatory programs in the 
    legislation would increase net outlays as measured over the period 
    of the total of the 9 fiscal years following the budget year.
    (c) Determination.--The determination of whether a provision is 
subject to a point of order pursuant to this section shall be made by 
the Committee on the Budget of the Senate.
    (d) Supermajority Waiver and Appeal.--This section may be waived or 
suspended in the Senate only by an affirmative vote of three-fifths of 
the Members, duly chosen and sworn. An affirmative vote of three-fifths 
of the Members of the Senate, duly chosen and sworn, shall be required 
to sustain an appeal of the ruling of the Chair on a point of order 
raised under this section.
    (e) General Point of Order.--It shall be in order for a Senator to 
raise a single point of order that several provisions of a bill, 
resolution, amendment, motion, or conference report violate this 
section. The Presiding Officer may sustain the point of order as to 
some or all of the provisions against which the Senator raised the 
point of order. If the Presiding Officer so sustains the point of order 
as to some of the provisions (including provisions of an amendment, 
motion, or conference report) against which the Senator raised the 
point of order, then only those provisions (including provision of an 
amendment, motion, or conference report) against which the Presiding 
Officer sustains the point of order shall be deemed stricken pursuant 
to this section. Before the Presiding Officer rules on such a point of 
order, any Senator may move to waive such a point of order as it 
applies to some or all of the provisions against which the point of 
order was raised. Such a motion to waive is amendable in accordance 
with rules and precedents of the Senate. After the Presiding Officer 
rules on such a point of order, any Senator may appeal the ruling of 
the Presiding Officer on such a point of order as it applies to some or 
all of the provisions on which the Presiding Officer ruled.
    (f) Form of the Point of Order.--When the Senate is considering a 
conference report on, or an amendment between the Houses in relation 
to, a bill, upon a point of order being made by any Senator pursuant to 
this section, and such point of order being sustained, such material 
contained in such conference report or amendment shall be deemed 
stricken, and the Senate shall proceed to consider the question of 
whether the Senate shall recede from its amendment and concur with a 
further amendment, or concur in the House amendment with a further 
amendment, as the case may be, which further amendment shall consist of 
only that portion of the conference report or House amendment, as the 
case may be, not so stricken. Any such motion shall be debatable. In 
any case in which such point of order is sustained against a conference 
report (or Senate amendment derived from such conference report by 
operation of this subsection), no further amendment shall be in order.
    (g) Effectiveness.--This section shall not apply to--
        (1) legislation making supplemental appropriations for fiscal 
    year 2007; and
        (2) any provision constituting a change in a mandatory program 
    in appropriations legislation if such provision has been enacted in 
    each of the 3 fiscal years prior to the budget year.

SEC. 210. COMPLIANCE WITH SECTION 13301 OF THE BUDGET ENFORCEMENT ACT 
              OF 1990.

statement accompanying the conference report on any concurrent 
resolution on the budget shall include in its allocation under section 
302(a) of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974 to the Committee on 
Appropriations amounts for the discretionary administrative expenses of 
the Social Security Administration.
    (b) Special Rule.--In the House, for purposes of applying section 
302(f) of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974, estimates of the level 
of total new budget authority and total outlays provided by a measure 
shall include any discretionary amounts provided for the Social 
Security Administration.

SEC. 211. APPLICATION AND EFFECT OF CHANGES IN ALLOCATIONS AND 
              AGGREGATES.

    (a) Application.--Any adjustments of allocations and aggregates 
made pursuant to this resolution shall--
        (1) apply while that measure is under consideration;
        (2) take effect upon the enactment of that measure; and
        (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 
resolution 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 determined on the 
basis of estimates made by the appropriate Committee on the Budget.

SEC. 212. ADJUSTMENTS TO REFLECT CHANGES IN CONCEPTS AND DEFINITIONS.

    Upon the enactment of a bill or joint resolution providing for a 
change in concepts or definitions, the Chairman of the appropriate 
Committee on the Budget may make adjustments to the levels and 
allocations in this resolution in accordance with section 251(b) of the 
Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 (as in effect 
prior to September 30, 2002).

SEC. 213. EXERCISE OF RULEMAKING POWERS.

    Congress adopts the provisions of this title--
        (1) as an exercise of the rulemaking power of the Senate and 
    House of Representatives, respectively, and as such they shall be 
    considered as part of the rules of each House or of that House to 
    which they specifically apply, and such rules shall supersede other 
    rules only to the extent that they are inconsistent with such other 
    rules; and
        (2) with full recognition of the constitutional right of either 
    the Senate or House of Representatives to change those rules 
    (insofar as they relate to that House) at any time, in the same 
    manner, and to the same extent as is the case of any other rule of 
    the Senate or House of Representatives.

                        TITLE III--RESERVE FUNDS

SEC. 301. DEFICIT-NEUTRAL RESERVE FUND FOR SCHIP LEGISLATION.

    (a) Senate.--
        (1) Priority.--The Senate establishes the following priorities 
    and makes the following findings:
            (A) The Senate shall make the enactment of legislation to 
        reauthorize the State Children's Health Insurance Program 
        (SCHIP) a top priority for the remainder of fiscal year 2007, 
        during the first session of the 110th Congress.
            (B) Extending health care coverage to the Nation's 
        vulnerable uninsured children is an urgent priority for the 
        Senate.
            (C) SCHIP has proven itself a successful program for 
        covering previously uninsured children.
            (D) More than 6 million children are enrolled in this 
        landmark program, which has enjoyed broad bipartisan support in 
        Congress, among our Nation's governors, and within state and 
        local governments.
            (E) SCHIP reduces the percentage of children with unmet 
        health care needs.
            (F) Since SCHIP was created, enormous progress has been 
        made in reducing disparities in children's coverage rates.
            (G) Uninsured children who gain coverage through SCHIP 
        receive more preventive care and their parents report better 
        access to providers and improved communications with their 
        children's doctors.
            (H) Congress has a responsibility to reauthorize SCHIP 
        before the expiration of its current authorization.
        (2) Reserve fund.--In the Senate, the Chairman of the Senate 
    Committee on the Budget may revise the allocations, aggregates, and 
    other appropriate levels in this resolution for a bill, joint 
    resolution, amendment, motion, or conference report that provides 
    up to $50,000,000,000 in outlays over the period of the total of 
    fiscal years 2007 through 2012 for reauthorization of the State 
    Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP), if such legislation 
    maintains coverage for those currently enrolled in SCHIP, continues 
    efforts to enroll uninsured children who are already eligible for 
    SCHIP or Medicaid but are not enrolled, or supports States in their 
    efforts to move forward in covering more children, by the amounts 
    provided in that legislation for those purposes, provided that the 
    outlay adjustment shall not exceed $50,000,000,000 in outlays over 
    the period of the total of fiscal years 2007 through 2012, and 
    provided that such legislation would not increase the deficit over 
    either the period of the total of fiscal years 2007 through 2012 or 
    the period of the total of fiscal years 2007 through 2017.
    (b) House Reserve Fund for the State Children's Health Insurance 
Program.--The Chairman of the House Committee on the Budget may revise 
the allocations of a committee or committees, aggregates, and other 
appropriate levels for bills, joint resolutions, amendments, or 
conference reports, which contains matter within the jurisdiction of 
the Committee on Energy and Commerce that expands coverage and improves 
children's health through the State Children's Health Insurance Program 
(SCHIP) under title XXI of the Social Security Act and the program 
under title XIX of such Act (commonly known as Medicaid) and that 
increases new budget authority that will result in not more than 
$50,000,000,000 in outlays in fiscal years 2007 through 2012, and 
others which contain offsets so designated for the purpose of this 
section within the jurisdiction of another committee or committees, if 
the combined changes would not increase the deficit or decrease the 
surplus for the total over the period of fiscal years 2007 through 2012 
or the period of fiscal years 2007 through 2017.

SEC. 302. DEFICIT-NEUTRAL RESERVE FUND FOR VETERANS AND WOUNDED 
              SERVICEMEMBERS.

    The Chairman of the appropriate Committee on the Budget may revise 
the allocations of a committee or committees, aggregates, and other 
appropriate levels in this resolution for one or more bills, joint 
resolutions, amendments, motions, or conference reports which--
        (1) enhance medical care and disability benefits for wounded or 
    disabled military personnel or veterans, which may include low-
    vision and blinded veterans;
        (2) expand eligibility for Combat-Related Special Compensation 
    to permit additional disabled retirees to receive both disability 
    compensation and retired pay;
        (3) eliminate the offset between Survivor Benefit Plan 
    annuities and veterans' dependency and indemnity compensation;
        (4) improve disability evaluations of military personnel or 
    veterans to expedite the claims process;

through 2017.

                            TITLE IV--POLICY

SEC. 401. POLICY ON MIDDLE-INCOME TAX RELIEF.

    (a) In the House.--
        (1) In general.--It is the policy of the House to minimize 
    fiscal burdens on middle-income families and their children and 
    grandchildren. It is the policy of the House to provide immediate 
    relief for the tens of millions of middle-income households who 
    would otherwise be subject to the Alternative Minimum Tax under 
    current law. Furthermore, it is the policy of the House to support 
    extension of middle-income tax relief and enhanced economic equity 
    through policies such as--
            (A) extension of the child tax credit;
            (B) extension of marriage penalty relief;
            (C) extension of the 10 percent individual income tax 
        bracket;
            (D) elimination of estate taxes on all but a minute 
        fraction of estates by reforming and substantially increasing 
        the unified tax credit;
            (E) extension of the research and experimentation tax 
        credit;
            (F) extension of the deduction for State and local sales 
        taxes;
            (G) extension of the deduction for small business 
        expensing; and
            (H) enactment of a tax credit for school construction 
        bonds.
        (2) Other matters.--The House assumes the cost of enacting such 
    policies is offset by reforms within the Internal Revenue Code of 
    1986 that promote economic efficiency, higher rates of tax 
    compliance to close the ``tax gap'', and reduced taxpayer burdens 
    through tax simplification.
    (b) In the Senate.--
        (1) In general.--The Senate adopted by a vote of 97 to 1 an 
    amendment to S. Con. Res. 21 as reported by the Senate Committee on 
    the Budget which, with regard to tax relief, reduced the revenue 
    aggregates by $179,816,000,000 to provide for--
            (A) extension of the child tax credit;
            (B) extension of marriage penalty relief;
            (C) extension of the 10 percent individual income tax 
        bracket;
            (D) reform of the estate tax to protect small businesses 
        and family farms;
            (E) extension of the adoption tax credit;
            (F) extension of the dependent care tax credit;
            (G) extension of the treatment of combat pay for purposes 
        of determining the Earned Income Tax Credit; and
            (H) other, unspecified tax relief.
        (2) Policy.--It is the policy of the Senate that this 
    resolution supports both the enactment of the policies listed in 
    paragraph (1) and the Senate pay-as-you-go rule in section 201, and 
    that any additional revenues needed to meet the Senate's tax policy 
    goals can be achieved by closing the tax gap, shutting down abusive 
    tax shelters, addressing offshore tax havens, and without raising 
    taxes.

SEC. 402. POLICY ON DEFENSE PRIORITIES.

    It is the policy of this resolution that--
        (1) implementing the recommendation of the National Commission 
    on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (commonly referred to 
    as the 9/11 Commission) to adequately fund cooperative threat 
    reduction and nuclear nonproliferation programs should receive 
    higher priority than the President's budget provides;
        (2) TRICARE fees for military retirees under the age of 65 
    should remain at current levels;
        (3) military pay and benefits should be enhanced to improve 
    retention of experienced personnel;
        (4) the recommendations of the bipartisan ``Walter Reed 
    Commission'' (the President's Commission on Care for America's 
    Returning Wounded Warriors) and other United States Government 
    investigations into military healthcare facilities and services 
    should be funded;
        (5) higher priority defense needs could be addressed by funding 
    missile defense at an adequate but lower level, not providing 
    funding for development of space-based missile defense 
    interceptors, and by restraining excessive cost and schedule growth 
    in defense research, development and procurement programs;
        (6) sufficient resources should be provided for the Department 
    of Defense to do a more careful job of addressing as many as 
    possible of the 1,378 unimplemented recommendations made by the 
    Government Accountability Office over the last 6 years to improve 
    practices at the Department of Defense, including investigation of 
    the billions of dollars of obligations, disbursements and 
    overcharges for which the Department of Defense cannot account; and
        (7) savings from the actions recommended in paragraphs (5) and 
    (6) of this section should be used to fund the priorities 
    identified in paragraphs (1) through (4) in this section.

SEC. 403. POLICY ON COLLEGE AFFORDABILITY.

    It is the policy of this resolution that nothing in this resolution 
should be construed to reduce any assistance that makes college more 
affordable for students, including but not limited to assistance to 
student aid programs run by nonprofit state agencies.

           TITLE V--SENSE OF THE HOUSE AND SENSE OF CONGRESS

SEC. 501. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON SERVICEMEMBERS' AND VETERANS' HEALTH 
              CARE AND OTHER PRIORITIES.

    It is the sense of Congress that--
        (1) Congress supports excellent health care for current and 
    former members of the United States Armed Services, who have served 
    well and honorably and have made significant sacrifices for this 
    Nation;
        (2) this resolution provides $43,125,000,000 in discretionary 
    budget authority for 2008 for Function 700 (Veterans Benefits and 
    Services), including veterans' health care, which is $6,668,000,000 
    more than the 2007 level, $5,474,000,000 more than the 
    Congressional Budget Office's baseline level for 2008, and 
    $3,576,000,000 more than the President's budget for 2008;
        (3) this resolution provides funding to implement, in part, 
    recommendations of the bi-partisan ``Walter Reed Commission'' (the 
    President's Commission on Care for America's Returning Wounded 
    Warriors) and other United States Government investigations into 
    military and veterans health care facilities and services;
        (4) this resolution assumes the rejection of the enrollment 
    fees and co-payment increases in the President's budget;
        (5) this resolution provides additional funding above the 
    President's inadequate budget levels for the Department of Veterans 
    Affairs to research and treat veterans' mental health, post-
    traumatic stress disorder, and traumatic brain and spinal cord 
    injuries; and
        (6) this resolution provides additional funding above the 
    President's inadequate budget levels for the Department of Veterans 
    Affairs to improve the speed and accuracy of its processing of 
    disability compensation claims, including funding to hire 
    additional personnel above the President's requested level.

SEC. 502. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON THE INNOVATION AGENDA: A COMMITMENT TO 
              COMPETITIVENESS TO KEEP AMERICA #1.

    (a) It is the sense of Congress to provide sufficient funding that 
our Nation may continue to be the world leader in education, innovation 
and economic growth. This resolution provides substantial increased 
funding above the President's requested level for 2008, and additional 
amounts in subsequent years in Function 250 (General Science, Space and 
Technology) and Function 270 (Energy). Additional increases for 
scientific research and education are included in Function 500 
(Education, Employment, Training, and Social Services), Function 550 
(Health), Function 300 (Environment and Natural Resources), Function 
350 (Agriculture), Function 400 (Transportation), and Function 370 
(Commerce and Housing Credit), all of which receive more funding than 
the President requested.
    (b) America's greatest resource for innovation resides within 
classrooms across the country. The increased funding provided in this 
resolution will support important initiatives to educate 100,000 new 
scientists, engineers, and mathematicians, and place highly qualified 
teachers in math and science K-12 classrooms.
    (c) Independent scientific research provides the foundation for 
innovation and future technologies. This resolution will put us on the 
path toward doubling funding for the National Science Foundation, basic 
research in the physical sciences, and collaborative research 
partnerships; and toward achieving energy independence through the 
development of clean and sustainable alternative energy technologies.

SEC. 503. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON HOMELAND SECURITY.

    It is the sense of Congress that--
        (1) this resolution assumes additional homeland security 
    funding above the President's requested level for 2008 and every 
    subsequent year;
        (2) this resolution assumes funding above the President's 
    requested level for 2008, and additional amounts in subsequent 
    years, in the four budget functions: Function 400 (Transportation), 
    Function 450 (Community and Regional Development), Function 550 
    (Health), and Function 750 (Administration of Justice) that fund 
    most nondefense homeland security activities; and
        (3) the homeland security funding provided in this resolution 
    will help to strengthen the security of our Nation's transportation 
    system, particularly our ports where significant security 
    shortfalls still exist and foreign ports, by expanding efforts to 
    identify and scan all high-risk United States-bound cargo, equip, 
    train and support first responders (including enhancing 
    interoperable communications and emergency management), strengthen 
    border patrol, and increase the preparedness of the public health 
    system.

SEC. 504. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING THE ONGOING NEED TO RESPOND TO 
              HURRICANES KATRINA AND RITA.

    The sense of Congress is as follows:
        (1) Critical needs in the Gulf Coast region should be addressed 
    without further delay. The budget resolution creates a reserve fund 
    that would allow for affordable housing that may be used to focus 
    on areas devastated by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, as well as new 
    funding for additional recovery priorities.
        (2) Additional oversight and investigation is needed to ensure 
    that recovery efforts are on track, develop legislation to reform 
    the contracting process, and better prepare for future disasters. 
    Those efforts should be made in close consultation with residents 
    of affected areas. For example, the budget resolution provides 
    additional 2007 funding for the Federal Emergency Management 
    Agency, some of which may be used for this purpose.

SEC. 505. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING LONG-TERM SUSTAINABILITY OF 
              ENTITLEMENTS.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
        (1) The aging of the United States population is going to put 
    unprecedented pressure on the Nation's retirement and health care 
    systems.
        (2) The long-term strength of Social Security would be improved 
    through a fiscally responsible policy of reducing the deficit and 
    paying down the debt that has accumulated since 2001, thus reducing 
    debt service payments and freeing up billions of dollars that can 
    be dedicated to meeting social security's obligations.
        (3) A policy of reducing and eventually eliminating the deficit 
    and paying down the debt is a key factor in improving the long-term 
    strength of the economy as a whole, because a lower debt burden 
    frees up resources for productive investments that will result in 
    higher economic growth, provide a higher standard of living for 
    future generations, and enhance the Nation's ability to meet its 
    commitments to its senior citizens.
        (4) The most significant factor affecting the Nation's 
    entitlement programs is the rapid increase in health care costs. 
    The projected increasing costs of Medicare and Medicaid are not 
    unique to these programs but rather are part of a pattern of rising 
    costs for the health sector as a whole.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that the 
growing cost of entitlements should be addressed in a way that is 
fiscally responsible and promotes economic growth, that addresses the 
causes of cost growth in the broader health care system, and that 
protects beneficiaries without leaving a legacy of debt to future 
generations.

SEC. 506. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING THE NEED TO MAINTAIN AND BUILD 
              UPON EFFORTS TO FIGHT HUNGER.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
        (1) More than 35 million individuals (12.4 million of them 
    children) are food insecure, uncertain of having, or unable to 
    acquire enough food. 10.8 million Americans are hungry because of 
    lack of food.
        (2) Despite the critical contributions of the Department of 
    Agriculture nutrition programs and particularly the food stamp 
    program that significantly reduced payment error rates while 
    increasing enrollment to partially mitigate the impact of recent 
    increases in the poverty rate, significant need remains.
        (3) Nearly 25 million people, including nine million children 
    and three million seniors, sought emergency food assistance from 
    food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and local charities last 
    year.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that the 
Department of Agriculture programs that help fight hunger should be 
maintained and that Congress should seize opportunities to enhance 
those programs to reach people in need and to fight hunger.

SEC. 507. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING AFFORDABLE HEALTH COVERAGE.

    (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
        (1) More than 46 million Americans, including nine million 
    children, lack health insurance. People without health insurance 
    are more likely to experience problems getting medical care and to 
    be hospitalized for avoidable health problems.
        (2) Most Americans receive health coverage through their 
    employers. A major issue facing all employers is the rising cost of 
    health insurance. Small businesses, which have generated most of 
    the new jobs annually over the last decade, have an especially 
    difficult time affording health coverage, due to higher 
    administrative costs and fewer people over whom to spread the risk 
    of catastrophic costs. Because it is especially costly for small 
    businesses to provide health coverage, their employees make up a 
    large proportion of the nation's uninsured individuals.
    (b) Sense of Congress.--It is the sense of Congress that 
legislation consistent with the pay-as-you-go principle should be 
adopted that makes health insurance more affordable and accessible, 
with attention to the special needs of small businesses, and that 
lowers costs and improves the quality of health care by encouraging 
integration of health information technology tools into the practice of 
medicine, and promoting improvements in disease management and disease 
prevention.

SEC. 508. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING EXTENSION OF THE STATUTORY PAY-
              AS-YOU-GO RULE.

    It is the sense of Congress that in order to reduce the deficit 
Congress should extend PAYGO consistent with provisions of the Budget 
Enforcement Act of 1990.

SEC. 509. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON LONG-TERM BUDGETING.

    It is the sense of Congress that the determination of the 
congressional budget for the United States Government and the 
President's budget request should include consideration of the 
Financial Report of the United States Government, especially its 
information regarding the Government's net operating cost, financial 
position, and long-term liabilities.

SEC. 510. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING PAY PARITY.

    It is the sense of Congress that rates of compensation for civilian 
employees of the United States should be adjusted at the same time, and 
in the same proportion, as are rates of compensation for members of the 
uniformed services.

SEC. 511. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING WASTE, FRAUD, AND ABUSE.

    It is the sense of Congress that all committees should examine 
programs within their jurisdiction to identify wasteful and fraudulent 
spending. To this end, section 207 of this resolution includes cap 
adjustments to provide appropriations for 3 programs that accounted for 
a significant share of improper payments reported by Federal agencies 
in 2006: Social Security Administration Continuing Disability Reviews, 
the Medicare/Medicaid Health Care Fraud and Abuse Control Program, and 
Unemployment Insurance. Section 207 also includes a cap adjustment for 
the Internal Revenue Service for tax compliance efforts to close the 
tax gap. In addition, the resolution's deficit-neutral reserve funds 
require authorizing committees to cut lower-priority and wasteful 
spending to accommodate higher-priority programs. Finally, section 207

SEC. 512. SENSE OF CONGRESS REGARDING THE IMPORTANCE OF CHILD SUPPORT 
              ENFORCEMENT.

    It is the sense of Congress that--
        (1) additional legislative action is needed to ensure that 
    States have the necessary resources to collect all child support 
    that is owed to families and to allow them to pass 100 percent of 
    support on to families without financial penalty; and
        (2) when 100 percent of child support payments are passed to 
    the child, rather than administrative expenses, program integrity 
    is improved and child support participation increases.

SEC. 513. SENSE OF THE HOUSE ON STATE VETERANS CEMETERIES.

the plot allowance for the interment in a State veterans cemetery of 
any spouse or eligible child of a veteran, consistent with the pay-as-
you-go principle.
