Default Recapture of unused visas from 1992

Page 276, section 2304 talks about recapture of unused visas. My understanding is only for fiscal year 2015 which start on October 2014, total visas available are:
140,000
+ any usunsed visas from previous
+ any unused visas from 1992. (This is gonna be a very big number)

From fiscal year 2016 onwards:
140000
+ any unused visas from previous year (not here unused means that are only from 2015 or all unused since 1992 as these have been added to available numbers in 2015).


SEC. 2304. WORLD-WIDE LEVELS AND RECAPTURE OF UNUSED IMMIGRANT VISAS.
(a) EMPLOYMENT-BASED IMMIGRANTS.—Section
201(d) (8 U.S.C. 1151(d)) is amended to read as follows:
‘‘(d) WORLDWIDE LEVEL OF EMPLOYMENT-BASED IMMIGRANTS.—
‘‘(1) IN GENERAL.—
‘‘(A) WORLDWIDE LEVEL.—For a fiscal
year after fiscal year 2015, the worldwide level
of employment-based immigrants under this
subsection is equal to the sum of—
‘‘(i) 140,000; and
‘‘(ii) the number computed under
paragraph (2).
‘‘(B) FISCAL YEAR 2015.—For fiscal year
2015, the worldwide level of employment-based
immigrants under this subsection is equal to
the sum of—
‘‘(i) 140,000;
‘‘(ii) the number computed under
paragraph (2); and
‘‘(iii) the number computed under
paragraph (3).

‘‘(2) PREVIOUS FISCAL YEAR.—The number
computed under this paragraph for a fiscal year is
the difference, if any, between the maximum number
of visas which may be issued under section
203(a)(relating to family-sponsored immigrants)
during the previous fiscal year and the number of visas issued under that section during that year.
‘‘(3) UNUSED VISAS.—The number computed under this paragraph is the difference, if any, between—
‘‘(A) the sum of the worldwide levels established under paragraph (1) for fiscal years
1992 through and including 2013; and
‘‘(B) the number of visas actually issued under section 203(b) during such fiscal years.’’.
