House Passes Budget Resolution

By: Mitch

On March 29, the full House passed its Fiscal Year 2013 budget resolution authored by Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI). The Ryan budget passed by a vote of 228 to 191 with 10 Republicans voting against the resolution, including House Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations Subcommittee Chairman Denny Rehberg (R-MT). The proposal would cap federal discretionary spending at $1.028 trillion, which is $19 billion below the $1.047 trillion level set by the Budget Control Act in 2011. Though the Senate has yet to produce a budget resolution of its own, they have indicated that they intend to use the higher $1.047 trillion level in their appropriations process, which could cause problems when the two chambers have to come to an agreement on funding levels for specific programs like Perkins. A Democratic substitute budget resolution was offered Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), and four other substitutes were proposed by both Republicans and Democrats, but all were defeated.
