On March 20, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), chair of the House Budget Committee, introduced a budget resolution for 2013. The budget resolution sets overall spending levels for Members of Congress on the Appropriations Committees. The Ryan budget caps overall discretionary spending at $1.028 trillion, $19 billion less than the amount that had already been agreed to in last summer's debt reduction deal. Within the budget, the function for discretionary and mandatory education, training, employment, and social services programs is reduced by $9.5 billion below the current baseline. The resolution is being discussed today in the House Budget Committee and ACTE is following the progress. Although it will likely pass out of Committee, it is extremely unlikely that the proposal will pass the Senate and thus is not expected to be the final position on spending caps.
