the funds made available by this Act or by any other Act may be used to 
provide any officer or employee of the District of Columbia with an 
official vehicle unless the officer or employee uses the vehicle only 
in the performance of the officer's or employee's official duties. For 
purposes of this paragraph, the term ``official duties'' does not 
include travel between the officer's or employee's residence and 
workplace (except: (1) in the case of an officer or employee of the

expended by any entity within the District of Columbia government 
during fiscal year 2000 and each succeeding fiscal year, any 
expenditures of the District government attributable to any officer or 
employee of the District government who provides services which are 
within the authority and jurisdiction of the entity (including any 
portion of the compensation paid to the officer or employee 
attributable to the time spent in providing such services) shall be 
treated as expenditures made from the entity's budget, without regard 
to whether the officer or employee is assigned to the entity or 
otherwise treated as an officer or employee of the entity.
    (b) The District of Columbia Government Comprehensive Merit 
Personnel Act of 1978 (D.C. Code, sec. 1-601.1 et seq.), as amended, is 
further amended in section 2408(a) by deleting ``1999'' and inserting,

            (1) the District of Columbia Board of Education, or its 
        successor, and DCPS shall assess or evaluate a student who may 
        have a disability and who may require special education 
        services; and
            (2) if a student is classified as having a disability, as 
        defined in section 101(a)(1) of the Individuals with 
        Disabilities Education Act (84 Stat. 175; 20 U.S.C. 1401(a)(1)) 
        or in section 7(8) of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (87 Stat. 
        359; 29 U.S.C. 706(8)), the Board and DCPS shall place that 
        student in an appropriate program of special education 
        services.
    Sec. 141. Notwithstanding any provision of any Federally-granted 
charter or any other provision of law, beginning with fiscal year 1999 
and for each fiscal year thereafter, the real property of the National 
Education Association located in the District of Columbia shall be 
subject to taxation by the District of Columbia in the same manner as 
any similar organization.

purposes of the annual independent audit of the District of Columbia 
government (including the District of Columbia Financial Responsibility 
and Management Assistance Authority) for fiscal year 2000 unless--
            (1) the audit is conducted by the Inspector General of the 
        District of Columbia pursuant to section 208(a)(4) of the 
        District of Columbia Procurement Practices Act of 1985 (D.C. 
        Code, sec. 1-1182.8(a)(4)); and
            (2) the audit includes a comparison of audited actual year-
        end results with the revenues submitted in the budget document 
        for such year and the appropriations enacted into law for such 
        year.
    Sec. 143. Nothing in this Act shall be construed to authorize any 
office, agency or entity to expend funds for programs or functions for 
which a reorganization plan is required but has not been approved by 
the District of Columbia Financial Responsibility and Management 
Assistance Authority. Appropriations made by this Act for such programs 
or functions are conditioned only on the approval by the Authority of 
the required reorganization plans.
    Sec. 144. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, rule, or 
regulation, the evaluation process and instruments for evaluating 
District of Columbia Public Schools employees shall be a non-negotiable 
item for collective bargaining purposes.
    Sec. 145. None of the funds contained in this Act may be used by

Columbia.

later, the Chief Financial Officer shall submit to the appropriate 
committees of Congress, the Mayor, and the District of Columbia 
Financial Responsibility and Management Assistance Authority a revised 
appropriated funds operating budget for all agencies of the District of 
Columbia government for such fiscal year that is in the total amount of 
the approved appropriation and that realigns budgeted data for personal 
services and other-than-personal-services, respectively, with 
anticipated actual expenditures.
    (b) The revised budget required by subsection (a) of this section 
shall be submitted in the format of the budget that the District of 
Columbia government submitted pursuant to section 442 of the District 
of Columbia Home Rule Act, Public Law 93-198, as amended (D.C. Code, 
sec. 47-301).

                Management Assistance Authority, but, in no case may 
                any of the reserve funds be expended until any other 
                surplus funds have been used;
                    ``(B) shall not be used to fund the agencies of the 
                District of Columbia government under court ordered 
                receivership; and
                    ``(C) shall not be used to fund shortfalls in the 
                projected reductions budgeted in the budget proposed by 
                the District of Columbia government for general supply 
                schedule savings and management reform savings.
            ``(3) Report requirement.--The Authority shall notify the
