With the House and Senate each having adopted a budget increasing biennial spending upwards of $1 billion beyond the level approved last year, the two chambers now must resolve the differences between their two plans. To understand those differences, we recommend this concise analysis from the Washington Research Council. The three-pager includes a good side-by-side highlighting where the two budgets diverge.
The WRC writes,
The Senate and House have each passed supplemental operating budgets for 2019–21. The Senate-passed budget would increase 2019–21 appropriations from funds subject to the outlook (NGFO) and the workforce education investment account (WEIA) by $1.132 billion. The House-passed budget would increase appropriations from the NGFO+WEIA by $1.178 billion. Most of the difference between the two comes from new policy choices.
The Research Council says a narrative description of the two proposals is forthcoming.
