This morning, before the House of Representatives votes on the competing House Republicans’ and House Democrats’ budgets, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Ranking Member Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) discussed the FY2013 Budget proposals at a policy summit
There has never been a budget resolution that has been apolitical. Even when passed by Congress, these proposals are nonbinding, without the force of law. Instead, they simply spell out the priorities and agenda of a particular party or individual. This is true whether the Democratic Senate passes President Obama’s budget or the Republican House passes Paul Ryan’s budget resolution.
On Thursday, March 29, Public Notice joins National Journal to host “Budget Review,” the policy summit that will take a substantive, bipartisan look at the leading budget proposals circulating throughout Washington today.
