Event Recap: The Fiscal Outlook After the Debt Limit Deal

The bipartisan Fiscal Responsibility Act (FRA), signed into law in May, is the largest deficit reduction legislation enacted in nearly a dozen years and an important step forward for fiscal responsibility. But how much did it change the country's fiscal landscape, and what does it mean for the nation's long-term fiscal outlook? On Thursday, June 29, Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget senior vice president and senior policy director Marc Goldwein presented an event to answer that question. He gave a broad overview of the state of the economy and the fiscal outlook over the short- and long-term following enactment of the FRA, highlighting how the legislation has improved the budget outlook, while emphasizing that more work is needed to put the nation on solid fiscal ground.
