    (a) Across-the-Board Rescissions.--There is hereby rescinded an 
amount equal to 5 percent of--
            (1) the budget authority provided (or obligation limitation 
        imposed) in each of the fiscal years 2010 and 2011 for any non-
        defense, non-homeland-security, and non-veterans-affairs 
        discretionary account in any fiscal year 2010 or 2011 
        appropriation Act;
            (2) the budget authority provided in any advance 
        appropriation for each of the fiscal years 2010 and 2011 for 
        any non-defense, non-homeland-security, and non-veterans-
        affairs discretionary account in any prior fiscal year 
        appropriation Act; and
            (3) the contract authority provided in each of the fiscal 
        years 2010 and 2011 for any program that is subject to a

    (b) Non-Defense, Non-Homeland-Security, and Non-Veterans-Affairs

        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).
    (d) Subsequent Appropriation Laws.--In the case of any fiscal year 
2010 or 2011 appropriation Act enacted after the date of enactment of 
this section, any rescission required by subsection (a) shall take 
effect immediately after the enactment of such Act.

section (or, if later, 30 days after the enactment of any fiscal year 
2010 or 2011 appropriation Act), the Director of the Office of
