Both such deficit estimates for a fiscal year shall be made using the same economic and technical assumptions. "(ii) As used in this paragraph, the term 'snapshot date' means— "(I) for fiscal year 1988, in the case of an initial report submitted under subsection (a), October 10, 1987, and in the case of a final report submitted under subsection (c), the latest possible date before its submission; "(II) for fiscal year 1989 and subsequent fiscal years, in the case of an initial report submitted under subsection (a), August 15, and in the case of a final report submitted under subsection (c), the latest possible date before its submission, "(B) Subject to the exemptions, exceptions, limitations, special rules, and definitions set forth in this section and in sections 255, 256, and 257, one-half of the aggregate required outlay reductions shall be made under accounts within major functional category 050 (in this part referred to as outlays under 'defense programs'), and shall be made in accordance with the rules prescribed in subsection (d), and the other half of the aggregate required outlay reductions shall be made under other accounts of the Federal Government (in this part referred to as 'non-defense programs').
