Letter to Senate Budget Committee: Advance Bipartisan Budget Improvements

Nov 6, 2019 | Budget Process

Below is a letter sent today from Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget president Maya MacGuineas to Senate Budget Committee Chairman Mike Enzi (R-WY) and Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) commending their leadership in advancing the Bipartisan Congressional Budget Reform Act of 2019. The bill reflects an admirable commitment to identifying realistic bipartisan improvements to a budget process that is in many ways broken.

The letter identifies several areas of reform that are particularly promising:

  • Debt-to-GDP targets
  • Bipartisan budget pathway
  • Budget resolution debt limit adjustment
  • Special reconciliation
  • CBO transparency
  • Portfolio budgeting
