The supplementary special message was transmitted to the Congress for consideration on June 5, 2018. The supplementary special message reports the withdrawal of four proposals and the revision of six other rescission proposals. The withdrawals are for the Federal Highway Administration Miscellaneous Appropriations and Miscellaneous Highway Trust Funds accounts of the Department of Transportation, the Environmental Programs and Management account of the Environmental Protection Agency, and the International Disaster Assistance account of the U.S. Agency for International Development.

R18–2A SUPPLEMENTARY REPORT: Report Pursuant to Section 1014(c) of the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974 (2 U.S.C. 685(c)) This report updates Rescission proposal no. R18–2, which was transmitted to the Congress on May 8, 2018. This revision decreases by $1 the amount included in paragraph (1) of the appropriations language due to a rounding error, and corrects the reference in paragraph (1) of the appropriations language from the Agricultural Act of 2014 to the Food Security Act of 1985. This revision does not change the total amount of $499,507,921 proposed for rescission.

Justification: This proposal would rescind $356 million in unobligated balances of conservation programs that were not extended in the Agricultural Act of 2014, and $144 million in unobligated balances of the Environmental Quality Incentive Program (EQIP) from FY 2014 through FY 2017. There were a total of $1.5 billion in balances available in these programs on October 1, 2017. EQIP provides farmers and ranchers with financial cost-share and technical assistance to implement conservation practices on working agricultural land. These funds are from unobligated balances of expired programs or from prior years and are in excess of amounts needed to carry out the programs in FY 2018. Enacting the rescission would have limited programmatic impact. daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES RESCISSION PROPOSAL NO.

VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:19 Jun 08, 2018 Jkt 244001 This revision decreases the proposed rescission amount by $107,482,457 resulting in a revised rescission total of $50,000,000 in the Watershed and Flood Prevention Operations account of the Natural Resources Conservation Service, Department of Agriculture. This revision eliminates the proposed rescission of funding appropriated as part of the Federal Government’s response to aid in recovery efforts following Hurricane Sandy. PROPOSED RESCISSION OF BUDGET AUTHORITY: Report Pursuant to Section 1012 of the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974 (2 U.S.C. 683) Agency: DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE Bureau: Natural Resources Conservation Service Account: Watershed and Flood Prevention Operations (012-1072/X) * Amount proposed for rescission: $50,000,000 Proposed rescission appropriations language: * Of the unobligated balances identified in the Treasury Appropriation Fund Symbol 12X1072, $50,000,000 of amounts made available under the ‘‘Watershed and Flood Prevention Operations’’ heading in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017 (Public Law 115–31) are rescinded. Justification: * This proposal would rescind $50 million in prior year balances from the Department of Agriculture’s Watershed and Flood Prevention Operations program, of which $378 million were available in the overall account on October 1, 2017. This program conducts surveys and investigations, engineering operations, works of improvement, and changes in use of land. These funds are in excess of amounts needed to carry out the program in FY 2018. Enacting the rescission would have a minimal impact on the program as it is fully funded through the 2018 Consolidated Appropriations Act. Enacting the rescission would have limited programmatic impact. RESCISSION PROPOSAL NO.

This decrease reflects the actual amount available for rescission. PROPOSED RESCISSION OF BUDGET AUTHORITY: Report Pursuant to Section 1012 of the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974 (2 U.S.C. 683) Agency: DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT Bureau: Public and Indian Housing Programs Account: Public Housing Capital Fund (086-0304 2017/2020) * Amount proposed for rescission: $31,980,121 Proposed rescission appropriations language: * Of the unobligated balances available under this heading from the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017 (Public Law 115–31), $31,980,121 are rescinded. Justification: * This proposal would rescind $32 million in prior year balances of which there were $118 million available on October 1, 2017. The Capital Fund largely provides formula modernization grants to public housing authorities to address the capital repair needs in about one million units of public housing, in addition to set-asides for resident selfsufficiency programs and other programmatic needs. The proposed rescission would reduce budget authority that is inconsistent with the President’s policies. Enacting the rescission would reduce prior year balances available for capital repair needs, emergency repairs including safety and security measures, physical inspections, administrative and judicial receiverships, Resident Opportunity and Self-Sufficiency (ROSS) grants, and eliminate the FY 2017 competitive JobsPlus grants. Competitive grants to reduce lead-based paint hazards in public housing would continue to be funded from amounts available. Amounts appropriated in FY 2018 for the Public Housing Capital Fund could be used for some of these activities. RESCISSION PROPOSAL NO.

R18–28, which was transmitted to the Congress on May 8, 2018. Proposed rescission appropriations language: Any unobligated balances of amounts made available in section 1899K(b) of division B of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Public Law 111–5) are rescinded. Justification: daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES * This proposal would rescind $23 million in remaining balances for National Emergency Grants (NEGs) authorized under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. These NEGs were authorized to help States implement the Health Coverage Tax Credit (HCTC) for Trade Adjustment Assistance recipients, both helping States establish the systems and procedures needed to make healthcare benefits available and providing assistance and support services to eligible individuals waiting to receive payments through the HCTC. The initial HCTC authorization expired on January 1, 2014, but was reinstated in 2015. Since the HCTC program was reinstated, the Department of Labor has only distributed $1.4 million in Health NEGs. Enacting this rescission would be unlikely to have a programmatic impact since the Department does not have plans for the remaining funds. The proposed rescission would have no effect on outlays.

This revision decreases the proposed rescission amount by $9,564,496 resulting in a revised rescission total of $141,716,839 in the Capital Magnet Fund, Community Development Financial Institutions, Department of the Treasury. This decrease reflects the actual amount available for rescission.

Justification: * This proposal would rescind $142 million in amounts made available under the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (Public Law 110– 289) for FY 2018, of which $142 million was available on May 1, 2018. The Capital Magnet Fund (CMF) is a competitive grant program that funds housing nonprofits and Community Development Financial Institutions to finance affordable housing activities, as well as related economic development activities and community service facilities. This proposed rescission of CMF balances, which were derived from assessments on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac under permanent law, would reduce budget authority that is inconsistent with the President’s policies, recognizing that State and local governments and the private sector have a greater role to play in addressing affordable housing needs. Enacting the rescission would reduce the funds available for grants under this program. RESCISSION PROPOSAL NO.

Justification: This proposal would rescind $150 million in prior year balances from the National Service Trust, of which there were $205 million available on October 1, 2017. The National Service Trust provides funds for educational awards to eligible AmeriCorps volunteers who have completed their terms of service.

the appropriations language due to a rounding error, and corrects the 
reference in paragraph (1) of the appropriations language from the 
Agricultural Act of 2014 to the Food Security Act of 1985. This 
revision does not change the total amount of $499,507,921 proposed for 
rescission.

Amount proposed for rescission: $499,507,921

Proposed rescission appropriations language:
    * Of the unobligated balances identified by the Treasury 
Appropriation Fund Symbol 12X1004, the following amounts are 
permanently rescinded: (1) $143,854,263 of amounts made available in 
section 1241(a)(5) of the Food Safety Act of 1985 (16 U.S.C. 
3841(a)(5)); (2) $146,650,991 of amounts made available in section 
2701(d) of the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (Public Law 
110-246); (3) $33,261,788 of amounts made available in section 2701(e) 
of the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (Public Law 110-246); 
(4) $12,960,988 of amounts made available in section 2701(g) of the 
Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (Public Law 110-246); (5) 
$7,447,193 of amounts made available in section 2510 of the Food, 
Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (Public Law 110-246); and (6) 
$155,332,698 of amounts made available from the Commodity Credit 
Corporation to carry out the wetlands reserve program.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    * Revised from previous report.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Justification:

This proposal would rescind $356 million in unobligated balances of 
conservation programs that were not extended in the Agricultural Act of 
2014, and $144 million in unobligated balances of the Environmental 
Quality Incentive Program (EQIP) from FY 2014 through FY 2017. There 
were a total of $1.5 billion in balances available in these programs on 
October 1, 2017. EQIP provides farmers and ranchers with financial 
cost-share and technical assistance to implement conservation practices 
on working agricultural land. These funds are from unobligated balances 
of expired programs or from prior years and are in excess of amounts 
needed to carry out the programs in FY 2018. Enacting the rescission 
would have limited programmatic impact.

RESCISSION PROPOSAL NO. R18-3A

SUPPLEMENTARY REPORT: Report Pursuant to Section 1014(c) of the 
Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974 (2 U.S.C. 
685(c))

This report updates Rescission proposal no. R18-3, which was 
transmitted to the Congress on May 8, 2018.

This revision decreases the proposed rescission amount by $107,482,457 
resulting in a revised rescission total of $50,000,000 in the Watershed 
and Flood Prevention Operations account of the Natural Resources 
Conservation Service, Department of Agriculture. This revision 
eliminates the proposed rescission of funding appropriated as part of 
the Federal Government's response to aid in recovery efforts following 
Hurricane Sandy.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    * Revised from previous report.

Proposed rescission appropriations language:
    * Of the unobligated balances identified in the Treasury 
Appropriation Fund Symbol 12X1072, $50,000,000 of amounts made 
available under the ``Watershed and Flood Prevention Operations'' 
heading in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017 (Public Law 115-
31) are rescinded.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    * Revised from previous report.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Justification:

* This proposal would rescind $50 million in prior year balances from 
the Department of Agriculture's Watershed and Flood Prevention 
Operations program, of which $378 million were available in the overall 
account on October 1, 2017. This program conducts surveys and 
investigations, engineering operations, works of improvement, and 
changes in use of land. These funds are in excess of amounts needed to 
carry out the program in FY 2018. Enacting the rescission would have a 
minimal impact on the program as it is fully funded through the 2018 
Consolidated Appropriations Act. Enacting the rescission would have 
limited programmatic impact.

RESCISSION PROPOSAL NO. R18-21A

SUPPLEMENTARY REPORT: Report Pursuant to Section 1014(c) of the 
Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act of 1974 (2 U.S.C. 
685(c))

This report updates Rescission proposal no. R18-21, which was 
transmitted to the Congress on May 8, 2018.

This revision decreases the proposed rescission amount by $2,071,115 
resulting in a revised rescission total of $31,980,121 in the Public 
Housing Capital Fund, Department of Housing and Urban Development. This 
decrease reflects the actual amount available for rescission.

* Amount proposed for rescission: $31,980,121
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    * Revised from previous report.

Proposed rescission appropriations language:
    * Of the unobligated balances available under this heading from the 
Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017 (Public Law 115-31), $31,980,121 
are rescinded.

Justification:

* This proposal would rescind $32 million in prior year balances of 
which there were $118 million available on October 1, 2017. The Capital 
Fund largely provides formula modernization grants to public housing 
authorities to address the capital repair needs in about one million 
units of public housing, in addition to set-asides for resident self-
sufficiency programs and other programmatic needs. The proposed 
rescission would reduce budget authority that is inconsistent with the 
President's policies. Enacting the rescission would reduce prior year 
balances available for capital repair needs, emergency repairs 
including safety and security measures, physical inspections, 
administrative and judicial receiverships, Resident Opportunity and 
Self-Sufficiency (ROSS) grants, and eliminate the FY 2017 competitive 
Jobs-Plus grants. Competitive grants to reduce lead-based paint hazards 
in public housing would continue to be funded from amounts available. 
Amounts appropriated in FY 2018 for the Public Housing Capital Fund 
could be used for some of these activities.

Amount proposed for rescission: $22,913,265

Proposed rescission appropriations language:
    Any unobligated balances of amounts made available in section 
1899K(b) of division B of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 
2009 (Public Law 111-5) are rescinded.

Justification:

* This proposal would rescind $23 million in remaining balances for 
National Emergency Grants (NEGs) authorized under the American Recovery 
and Reinvestment Act. These NEGs were authorized to help States 
implement the Health Coverage Tax Credit (HCTC) for Trade Adjustment 
Assistance recipients, both helping States establish the systems and 
procedures needed to make healthcare benefits available and providing 
assistance and support services to eligible individuals waiting to 
receive payments through the HCTC. The initial HCTC authorization 
expired on January 1, 2014, but was reinstated in 2015. Since the HCTC 
program was reinstated, the Department of Labor has only distributed 
$1.4 million in Health NEGs. Enacting this rescission would be unlikely 
to have a programmatic impact since the Department does not have plans 
for the remaining funds. The proposed rescission would have no effect 
on outlays.

U.S.C. 683)

Agency: DEPARTMENT OF THE TREASURY
Bureau: Departmental Offices
Account: Capital Magnet Fund, Community Development Financial 
Institutions (020-8524/X)

* Amount proposed for rescission: $141,716,839

Proposed rescission appropriations language:
    * From amounts made available to the Capital Magnet Fund for fiscal 
year 2018 pursuant to sections 1337 and 1339 of the Housing and 
Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (12 U.S.C. 4567 and 4569) $141,716,839 
are permanently rescinded.

Justification:

* This proposal would rescind $142 million in amounts made available 
under the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 (Public Law 110-
289) for FY 2018, of which $142 million was available on May 1, 2018. 
The Capital Magnet Fund (CMF) is a competitive grant program that funds 
housing nonprofits and Community Development Financial Institutions to 
finance affordable housing activities, as well as related economic 
development activities and community service facilities. This proposed 
rescission of CMF balances, which were derived from assessments on 
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac under permanent law, would reduce budget 
authority that is inconsistent with the President's policies, 
recognizing that State and local governments and the private sector 
have a greater role to play in addressing affordable housing needs. 
Enacting the rescission would reduce the funds available for grants 
under this program.

Amount proposed for rescission: $150,000,000

Proposed rescission appropriations language:

    Of the unobligated balances available in the ``National Service 
Trust'' established in section 102 of the National and Community 
Service Trust Act of 1993, $150,000,000 are permanently rescinded.

Justification:

This proposal would rescind $150 million in prior year balances from 
the National Service Trust, of which there were $205 million available 
on October 1, 2017. The National Service Trust provides funds for 
educational awards to eligible AmeriCorps volunteers who have completed 
their terms of service. The available balances in the Trust are in 
excess of amounts needed to cover educational awards in FY 2018. This 
rescission would not impact the agency's operations. This rescission 
would have no effect on outlays.
