                   BEEN EXPIRED FOR MORE THAN 5 YEARS.

       (a) Point of Order.--
       (1) In general.--In the Senate, it shall not be in order to 
     consider a provision in a bill, joint resolution, motion, 
     amendment, amendment between the Houses, or conference report 
     that appropriates amounts for a program for which the 
     authorizing authority has been expired for more than 5 fiscal 
     years.
       (2) Point of order sustained.--If a point of order is made 
     by a Senator against a provision described in paragraph (1), 
     and the point of order is sustained by the Chair, that 
     provision shall be stricken from the measure and may not be 
     offered as an amendment from the floor.
       (b) Form of the Point of Order.--A point of order under 
     subsection (a)(1) may be raised by a Senator as provided in 
     section 313(e) of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974 (2 
     U.S.C. 644(e)).
       (c) Conference Reports.--When the Senate is considering a 
     conference report on, or an amendment between the Houses in 
     relation to, a bill or joint resolution, upon a point of 
     order being made by any Senator pursuant to subsection 
     (a)(1), and such point of order being sustained, such 
     material contained in such conference report or House 
     amendment shall be 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 
     subsection), no further amendment shall be in order.
       (d) Supermajority Waiver and Appeal.--In the Senate, this 
     section may be waived or suspended only by an affirmative 
     vote of three-fifths of the Members, duly chose and sworn. An 
     affirmative vote of three-fifths of Members of the Senate,

  SA 1292. Mr. PAUL submitted an amendment intended to be proposed to 
amendment SA 1116 proposed by Mr. Enzi to the concurrent resolution H. 
Con. Res. 71, establishing the congressional budget for the United 
States Government for fiscal year 2018 and setting forth the 
appropriate budgetary levels for fiscal years 2019 through 2027; which 
was ordered to lie on the table; as follows:

       At the appropriate place insert the following:

     SEC. ___. SENSE OF THE SENATE ON TREATMENT OF REDUCTION OF 
                   APPROPRIATIONS LEVELS TO ACHIEVE SAVINGS.

       (a) Findings.--Congress finds the following:
       (1) H. Con. Res. 448 (96th Congress), the concurrent 
     resolution on the budget for fiscal year 1981, gave 
     authorizing committees reconciliation instructions which 
     amounted to approximately two-thirds of the savings required 
     under reconciliation.
       (2) The language in H. Con. Res. 448 resulted in a debate 
     about how reconciling discretionary spending programs could 
     be in order given that authorizations of appropriations for 
     programs did not actually change spending and the programs 
     authorized would be funded through later annual 
     appropriation. The staff of the Committee on the Budget of 
     the Senate and Marty Gold, counsel to the Majority Leader, 
     advised that upon consultation with the Parliamentarian, the 
     original instructions on discretionary spending would be out 
     of order because of the phrase, ``to modify programs''. This 
     was seen as too broad and programs could be modified without 
     resulting in changes to their future appropriations.
       (3) To rectify this violation, the Committee on the Budget 
     of the Senate reported S. Con. Res. 9 (97th Congress), 
     revising the congressional budget for the United States 
     Government for fiscal years 1981, 1982, and 1983, to include 
     reconciliation, which revised the language in the 
     reconciliation instructions to change entitlement law and 
     ``to report changes in laws within the jurisdiction of that 
     committee sufficient to reduce appropriations levels so as to 
     achieve savings''.
       (4) This was understood to mean changes in authorization 
     language of discretionary programs would be permissible under 
     reconciliation procedures provided such changes in law would 
     have the result in affecting a change in later outlays 
     derived from future appropriations. Further it was understood 
     that a change in authorization language that caused a change 
     in later outlays was considered to be a change in outlays for 
     the purpose of reconciliation.
       (5) On April 2, 1981, the Senate voted 88 to 10 to approve 
     S. Con. Res. 9 with the modified reconciliation language.
       (b) Sense of the Senate.--It is the sense of the Senate 
     that committees reporting changes in laws within the 
     jurisdiction of that committee sufficient to reduce 
     appropriations levels so as to achieve savings shall be 
     considered to be changes in outlays for the purpose of 
     enforcing the prohibition on extraneous matters in 
     reconciliation bills.

     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

       (1) In general.--When the Senate is considering a bill, 
     resolution, amendment, motion, amendment between the Houses, 
     or conference report, if a point of order is made by a

     Res. 13 (111th Congress), the concurrent resolution on the 
     budget for fiscal year 2010, shall no longer apply.

     consider a provision in a bill, joint resolution, motion, 
     amendment, amendment between the Houses, or conference report 
     that creates a duplicative program.
       (2) Point of order sustained.--If a point of order is made 
     by a Senator against a provision described in paragraph (1), 
     and the point of order is sustained by the Chair, that 
     provision shall be stricken from the measure and may not be 
     offered as an amendment from the floor.
       (b) Form of the Point of Order.--A point of order under 
     subsection (a)(1) may be raised by a Senator as provided in 
     section 313(e) of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974 (2 
     U.S.C. 644(e)).
       (c) Conference Reports.--When the Senate is considering a 
     conference report on, or an amendment between the Houses in 
     relation to, a bill or joint resolution, upon a point of 
     order being made by any Senator pursuant to subsection 
     (a)(1), and such point of order being sustained, such 
     material contained in such conference report or House 
     amendment shall be 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 
     subsection), no further amendment shall be in order.
       (d) Supermajority Waiver and Appeal.--In the Senate, this 
     section may be waived or suspended only by an affirmative 
     vote of three-fifths of the Members, duly chose and sworn. An 
     affirmative vote of three-fifths of 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.

     relation to, a bill or joint resolution, upon a point of 
     order being made by any Senator pursuant to subsection (a), 
     and such point of order being sustained, such material 
     contained in such conference report or House amendment shall 
     be stricken, and the Senate shall proceed to consider the 
     question of whether the Senate shall recede from its

     case may be, not so stricken. Any such motion in the Senate 
     shall be debatable. In any case in which such point of order

     derived from such conference report by operation of this 
     subsection), no further amendment shall be in order.
