Letter to Senate Budget Committee: Advance Bipartisan Budget Improvements
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
