House Budget Committee Releases Fiscal Year 2017 Committee Report
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the House Budget Committee filed the Fiscal Year 2017 budget resolution (H. Con. Res. 125) and released the accompanying committee report (H Report 114-470) for A Balanced Budget for a Stronger America. The report features the budget’s in-depth policy proposals, long-term projections, historical trends and economic analyses, information on the reconciliation process, comparisons between the committee’s budget and the president’s budget, as well as ideas for improving the congressional budget process. The report also includes all information pertaining to the House Budget Committee’s markup of the budget resolution held last week.
The introduction to the committee report reads in part:
“To address today’s fiscal problems, and to create a foundation for robust growth, this resolution retains longstanding convictions about budgeting and governing. It reverses the drift toward ever higher spending and larger government; it reinforces the innovation and creativity stirring in the myriad institutions and communities across the country; and it revitalizes the prosperity that creates ever-expanding opportunities for all Americans to pursue their destinies. Like any good budget resolution, this one expresses a vision of governing, and of America itself.”
Along with the report, the House Budget Committee also released a new video highlighting how A Balanced Budget for a Stronger America focuses on solving our fiscal, economic, and national security challenges. The video features Chairman Tom Price (GA-06), Vice Chairman Todd Rokita (IN-04), Congressman Rob Woodall (GA-07), Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-04), and Congressman John Moolenaar (MI-04).
