What is: Budget Reconciliation?
Confused about the "budget reconciliation" process and what it is? You're not alone!
On today's show, Todd discussed an article written by The Heritage Foundation explaining the history and purpose of budget reconciliation in Congress. This article is a helpful piece of information because it explains how passing legislation via budget reconciliation differs from the normal course legislation takes, especially as it passes through the Senate.
Budget reconciliation is a parliamentary procedure that sometimes occurs in the U.S. Congress that expedites the passage of certain budgetary legislation. The bill must meet certain criteria and can only be used a few times in a given year. Understanding this information may help you make better sense of what may happen with the Coranivirus-relief bill.
Well, that combined with what the Radical Left means by "bipartisan legislation."
