Requires specified House committees to report changes in laws within their respective jurisdictions sufficient to decrease budget authority and outlays in FY 1985 through 1987 in amounts consistent with reductions in entitlement programs assumed in this resolution and to increase revenues in FY 1985 through 1987 in amounts consistent with the assumptions in this resolution.

Declares that for FY 1985 through 1987 any revenues raised by legislation enacted on or after March 15, 1984, shall only be used to reduce the Federal budget deficits for such fiscal years except to the extent that such legislation earmarks all or any part of such revenues for specific spending programs.

Declares that it is the sense of the Congress: (1) that the Executive Branch achieve at least $2,000,000,000 in savings over FY 1985 through 1987 by implementing those recommendations of the President's Private Sector Survey on Cost Control requiring administrative action within that branch of Government; and (2) that the President report to Congress each year on the progress made in achieving such savings.

Declares that if Congress has not completed action by the start of FY 1985 on the second concurrent resolution on the budget for FY 1985, then this concurrent resolution shall be deemed to be the concurrent resolution required under the Budget Act. States that such result shall not apply to bills, resolutions, amendments, or conference reports in the jurisdiction of a committee if the enactment of such a measure would not cause the appropriate allocation of new discretionary budget authority or new spending authority for FY 1985 to be exceeded.

Provides that specified new discretionary budget authority or new spending authority contained in a bill, resolution, amendment, or conference report shall be disregarded if the budget authority for outlays which will result is derived from certain trust funds.

Makes it out of order in the House to consider any bill, resolution, or amendment providing new budget authority or spending authority, for 1985 direct loan authority, primary loan guarantee authority, or secondary loan guarantee authority for FY 1985 unless and until the committee with jurisdiction makes the allocation or subdivisions required by the Congressional Budget Act in connection with the most recently agreed to concurrent resolution on the budget.

Declares that such prohibition shall not apply until 21 days of continuous session after Congress completes action on this concurrent resolution.
