follows:
                    ``(B) Adjustment to align highway spending with 
                revenues.--(i) When the President submits the budget 
                under section 1105 of title 31, United States Code, OMB 
                shall calculate and the budget shall make adjustments 
                to the highway category for the budget year and each 
                outyear as provided in clause (ii)(I)(cc).

                highway receipts for the year before the current year 
                and subtract the sum of the estimated level of highway 
                receipts in subclause (II) plus any amount previously 
                calculated under item (bb) for that year.

                resulting from the change in obligations for the budget 
                year and the first outyear and the outlays flowing 
                therefrom through subsequent fiscal years. After making 
                the calculations under the preceding sentence, OMB 
                shall adjust the amount of obligations set forth in 
                that section for the budget year and the first outyear
