A reconciliation instruction (Budget Reconciliation) is a provision in a budget resolution directing one or more committees to submit legislation changing existing law in order to bring spending, revenues, or the debt-limit into conformity with the budget resolution. The instructions specify the committees to which they apply, indicate the appropriate dollar changes to be achieved, and usually provide a deadline by which the legislation is to be reported or submitted.
999 falls under a revenue bill and therefore would be subject to a reconciliation vote. The only way to prevent changes to 999 via reconciliation is to pass 999 as a constitutional amendment with wording that requires a specific number of votes, such as 2/3.
