SEC. 2. CALCULATION OF FEDERAL TAX BURDENS AND OUTLAYS.

    (a) State by State Calculation of Federal Tax Burdens.--
            (1) In general.--The Secretary of Commerce, acting through 
        the Director of the Bureau of Economic Analysis, shall 
        calculate the Federal tax burden of each State for each 
        calendar year.
            (2) Calculation of federal tax burden.--For purposes of 
        calculating the Federal tax burden of each State under 
        paragraph (1), the Secretary shall--
                    (A) treat Federal taxes paid by an individual as a 
                burden on the State in which such individual resides; 
                and
                    (B) treat Federal taxes paid by a legal business 
                entity as a burden on each State in which economic 
                activity of such entity is performed in the same 
                proportion that the economic activity of such entity in 
                such State bears to the economic activity of such 
                entity in all the States.
    (b) State by State Calculation of Federal Outlays.--
            (1) In general.--The Director of the Office of Management

        fiscal year.
            (2) Treatment of contract awards.--For purposes of 
        calculating the amount of Federal outlays received by a State 
        under paragraph (1), a Federal contract award shall be treated 
        as a Federal outlay received by each State in which performance 
        under the award takes place in the same proportion that such 
        performance in such State bears to such performance in all the 
        States.
    (c) State Defined.--In this section the term ``State'' means each 
of the several States.

SEC. 3. JOINT REPORT.

    Not later than the date that is 180 days after the beginning of 
each calendar year, the Secretary of Commerce and the Director of the 
Office of Management and Budget shall--
            (1) jointly submit to Congress a report containing the 
        results of the calculations described in section 2 with respect 
        to such calendar year; and

        the Bureau of Economic Analysis.
