                                _______
                                

          Mr. Cochran, from the Committee on Appropriations, 
                        submitted the following

                                 REPORT

    The Committee on Appropriations submits the following 
report revising the section 302(b) allocation to its 
subcommittees for fiscal year 2016 set forth in Senate Report 
114-55 (May 21, 2015).
    Section 302(e) of the Congressional Budget Act of 1974, as 
amended, provides that at any time after a committee reports 
its allocations such committee may report to its House an 
alteration of such allocations. This report is submitted 
pursuant to this section.
    The Budget Act requires that as soon as practicable after a 
concurrent resolution on the budget is agreed to, the Committee 
on Appropriations shall submit to the Senate a report 
subdividing among its subcommittees the new budget authority 
and total outlays allocated to the Committee in the joint 
explanatory statement accompanying the conference report on 
such a resolution. The conference report on the concurrent 
resolution for fiscal year 2016 (S. Con. Res. 11) was agreed to 
by the Congress on May 5, 2015.
    Pursuant to section 302(a) of the Congressional Budget Act 
of 1974, as amended, the joint explanatory statement 
accompanying the conference report on the concurrent resolution 
on the budget for fiscal year 2016 (H. Rept. 114-96; filed 
April 29, 2015) contains allocations to the Senate Committee on 
Appropriations for fiscal year 2016. Those allocations are 
consistent with the discretionary spending limits in section 
251(c) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act 
of 1985 (BBEDCA), as adjusted by the Office of Management and 
Budget pursuant to section 251A of that Act.
    The Committee notes that, under the terms of section 251 of 
BBEDCA, the Chairman of the Committee on the Budget may 
increase the 302(a) allocation of the Committee on 
Appropriations if certain conditions relating to funding of 
specific programs are met. These provisions address such 
programs as: cost of emergencies (sec. 251(b)(2)(A)(i)); 
continuing disability reviews and redeterminations (sec. 
251(b)(2)(B)); healthcare fraud and abuse control (sec. 
251(b)(2)(C)); and disaster funding (sec. 251(b)(2)(D)).
    The conference report also provides for a separate 
allocation to the Committee on Appropriations for fiscal year 
2016 for Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO)/Global War on 
Terrorism. Any appropriation designated for OCO under section 
251(b)(2)(A)(ii) of BBEDCA will be scored against this separate 
allocation. The OCO allocation may be subdivided among the 
subcommittees and the Chairman of the Committee on the Budget 
may adjust the 302(a) allocation to account for new 
information.
    On May 21, 2015, the Committee on Appropriations filed an 
initial allocation to its subcommittees pursuant to its section 
302(a) allocation.
    The revised allocations to subcommittees for 2016 are set 
forth below:

                                                                      REVISED SUBCOMMITTEE ALLOCATIONS FOR FISCAL YEAR 2016
                                                                                    [In millions of dollars]
