§665a. Committee allocations and enforcement (a) Committee spending allocations (1) House of Representatives (A) Allocation among committees

The joint explanatory statement accompanying a conference report on a budget resolution shall include allocations, consistent with the resolution recommended in the conference report, of the appropriate levels (for each fiscal year covered by that resolution and a total for all such years) of—

(i) total new budget authority,

(ii) total entitlement authority,

(iii) total outlays,

(iv) new budget authority from the Violent Crime Reduction Trust Fund, and

(v) outlays from the Violent Crime Reduction Trust Fund;


among each committee of the House of Representatives that has jurisdiction over legislation providing or creating such amounts.

(B) No double counting

Any item allocated to one committee of the House of Representatives may not be allocated to another such committee.

(C) Further division of amounts

The amounts allocated to each committee for each fiscal year, other than the Committee on Appropriations, shall be further divided between amounts provided or required by law on the date of filing of that conference report and amounts not so provided or required. The amounts allocated to the Committee on Appropriations for each fiscal year shall be further divided between discretionary and mandatory amounts or programs, as appropriate.

(2) Senate allocation among committees

The joint explanatory statement accompanying a conference report on a budget resolution shall include an allocation, consistent with the resolution recommended in the conference report, of the appropriate levels of—

(A) total new budget authority;

(B) total outlays;

(C) social security outlays;

(D) new budget authority from the Violent Crime Reduction Trust Fund; and

(E) outlays from the Violent Crime Reduction Trust Fund;


among each committee of the Senate that has jurisdiction over legislation providing or creating such amounts.

(3) Amounts not allocated

(A) In the House of Representatives, if a committee receives no allocation of new budget authority, entitlement authority, or outlays, that committee shall be deemed to have received an allocation equal to zero for new budget authority, entitlement authority, or outlays.

(B) In the Senate, if a committee receives no allocation of new budget authority, outlays, or social security outlays, that committee shall be deemed to have received an allocation equal to zero for new budget authority, outlays, or social security outlays.

(4) No double counting

Amounts allocated among committees under clause (iv) or (v) of paragraph (1)(A) or under subparagraph (D) or (E) of paragraph (2) shall not be included within any other allocation under that paragraph.

(b) Suballocations by committees (1) Suballocations by Appropriations Committees

As soon as practicable after a budget resolution is agreed to, the Committee on Appropriations of each House (after consulting with the Committee on Appropriations of the other House) shall suballocate each amount allocated to it for the budget year under subsection (a)(1)(A) or (a)(2) of this section among its subcommittees. Each Committee on Appropriations shall promptly report to its House suballocations made or revised under this paragraph.

(2) Suballocations by other committees of the Senate

Each other committee of the Senate to which an allocation under subsection (a)(2) of this section is made in the joint explanatory statement may subdivide each amount allocated to it under subsection (a) of this section among its subcommittees or among programs over which it has jurisdiction and shall promptly report any such suballocations to the Senate. Section 633(c) of this title shall not apply in the Senate to committees other than the Committee on Appropriations.

(c) Application of section 633(f) of this title to this section

In fiscal years through 1995, reference in section 633(f) of this title to the appropriate allocation made pursuant to section 633(b) of this title for a fiscal year shall, for purposes of this section, be deemed to be a reference to any allocation made under subsection (a) of this section or any suballocation made under subsection (b) of this section, as applicable, for the fiscal year of the resolution or for the total of all fiscal years made by the joint explanatory statement accompanying the applicable concurrent resolution on the budget. In the House of Representatives, the preceding sentence shall not apply with respect to fiscal year 1991.

(d) Application of subsections (a) and (b) to fiscal years 1992 to 1995

In the case of concurrent resolutions on the budget for fiscal years 1992 through 1995, allocations shall be made under subsection (a) of this section instead of section 633(a) of this title and shall be made under subsection (b) of this section instead of section 633(b) of this title. For those fiscal years, all references in sections 1 633(c), (d), (e), (f), and (g) of this title to section 633(a) of this title shall be deemed to be to subsection (a) of this section (including revisions made under section 665c of this title) and all such references to section 633(b) of this title shall be deemed to be to subsection (b) of this section (including revisions made under section 665c of this title).

(e) Pay-as-you-go exception in House

(1) 2 Section 633(f)(1) of this title and, after April 15 of any calendar year section 634(a) of this title, shall not apply to any bill, joint resolution, amendment thereto, or conference report thereon if, for each fiscal year covered by the most recently agreed to concurrent resolution on the budget—

(1) the enactment of such bill or resolution as reported;

(2) the adoption and enactment of such amendment; or

(3) the enactment of such bill or resolution in the form recommended in such conference report,


would not increase the deficit for any such fiscal year, and, if the sum of any revenue increases provided in legislation already enacted during the current session (when added to revenue increases, if any, in excess of any outlay increase provided by the legislation proposed for consideration) is at least as great as the sum of the amount, if any, by which the aggregate level of Federal revenues should be increased as set forth in that concurrent resolution and the amount, if any, by which revenues are to be increased pursuant to pay-as-you-go procedures under section 632(b)(8) of this title if included in that concurrent resolution.

(2) Revised allocations.—

(A) As soon as practicable after Congress agrees to a bill or joint resolution that would have been subject to a point of order under section 633(f)(1) of this title but for the exception provided in paragraph (1), the chairman of the Committee on the Budget of the House of Representatives may file with the House appropriately revised allocations under section 633(a) of this title and revised functional levels and budget aggregates to reflect that bill.

(B) such 3 revised allocations, functional levels, and budget aggregates shall be considered for the purposes of this Act as allocations, functional levels, and budget aggregates contained in the most recently agreed to concurrent resolution on the budget.
