FY 2017 Continuing Resolution

WASHINGTON, DC – The Senate Budget Committee today released its October 20, 2016, Budget Bulletin focused on the FY 2017 Continuing Resolution. The Budget Bulletin provides regular expert articles by Senate Budget Committee analysts on the issues before Congress relating to the budget, deficits, debt, and the economy.

This Bulletin contains an in-depth look at the FY 2017 appropriations process to date. It details what was accomplished under regular order, how the Appropriations Committee generated a Continuing Resolution (CR) following the breakdown of regular order, and how the Budget Committee analyzed the CR.  While most of the focus was on the CR’s actual topline funding level, this issue reports on the behind the scenes process of how the spending legislation was actually constructed from a budgetary point of view.
