    March 19, 2015 — Committee Vote: Fiscal 2016 Senate Budget Resolution — Vote to Report

    Recommend a budget for fiscal 2016 and budget levels through fiscal 2025. Compared with the Congressional Budget Office March 2015 baseline, the Senate plan would cut the deficit by roughly $5.6 trillion over 10 years. However, the CBO baseline is required to assume significantly more war spending than the Senate budget resolution anticipates, which adds to the amount of deficit reduction in the Senate plan.

    The plan assumes the budget would be balanced within the decade.

    The blueprint’s discretionary spending limits for fiscal 2016 match the sequester caps of $523 billion for defense and $493.5 billion for non-defense.

    As a way of providing more resources for the military, the plan as amended would allow up to $96 billion in war related spending in fiscal 2016, up from the president’s $58 billion request for the overseas contingency operations fund.

    The additional $38 billion in allowed war funding would be offset by lowering the limit on projected defense spending between 2022 and 2025. However, the budget also provides for a point of order against any appropriations bill that would spend more than $58 billion on war costs in 2016.

    The resolution contains reconciliation instructions directing the Senate Finance Committee and the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee each to produce legislation proposing at least $1 billion in deficit reduction over the 10-year period. The deadline for the committees to report the legislation is July 31.

    The resolution contains a score of deficit neutral reserve funds, including one that would allow increases in defense and non-defense discretionary spending if legislation were passed to adjust the statutory spending caps without increasing the deficit. Other deficit-neutral reserve funds allow budget totals to be adjusted to accommodate repeal or replacement of the 2010 health care law.

    As amended, the budget resolution would create a deficit neutral reserve fund for policies to overhaul or improve 529 college savings plans.

    As amended, the measure would create a point of order against provisions of appropriations legislation that would result in dedicated collections to the Crime Victims Fund being used for purposes unrelated to crime victims.

    As amended, it would establish a deficit neutral reserve fund for legislation strengthening the security of overseas diplomatic facilities.

    As amended, it would establish a scorekeeping rule to ensure that increases in guarantee fees of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac not be used to offset provisions that increase the deficit.

    Ordered reported favorably to the full Senate 12-10.
