Manager’s Amendment

Fiscal Year 2012 Budget Resolution

The manager’s amendment makes a correction to the reported resolution to fully reflect debt service costs and the savings associated with an assumed Federal civilian pay freeze and a reduction in the Federal civilian workforce.   Both policies were assumed in the budget resolution but were not reflected in the reported resolution’s budget levels.  The correction has no impact on budget levels for Fiscal Year 2012, but leads to a gradual increase in interest outlays that rises to $48 billion by 2021.  It is entirely offset by savings from the pay freeze and workforce reduction.  The manager’s amendment would change the appropriate function levels and limits to incorporate those assumptions and make other technical changes.
