            (3) the contract authority provided in fiscal year 2006 for 
        any program that is subject to a limitation contained in any 
        fiscal year 2006 appropriation Act for any non-defense, non-
        homeland-security discretionary account.
    (b) Non-Defense, Non-Homeland-Security Discretionary Account.--For 
purposes of subsection (a), the term ``non-defense, non-homeland

        authority described in such subsection; and
            (2) within each such account and item, to each program, 
        project, and activity (with programs, projects, and activities 
        as delineated in the appropriation Act or accompanying reports 
        for the relevant fiscal year covering such account or item, or 
        for accounts and items not included in appropriation Acts, as 
        delineated in the most recently submitted President's budget).

2006 appropriation Act enacted after the enactment of this section, any 
rescission required by subsection (a) shall take effect immediately 
after the enactment of such Act.
