ABSTRACT

Congressional Budget Office Estimate for House Rules Committee Print 115-30--The Make America Secure Appropriations Act, 2018   [open pdf - 147KB]

"CBO [Congressional Budget Office] calculates that if the Make America Secure Appropriations Act, 2018, were enacted in its current form, the amount of discretionary budget authority provided in that legislation for defense programs for fiscal year 2018 would exceed its limit by approximately $65 billion and therefore would require a sequestration. However, the authority to determine whether a sequestration is required, and, if so, how to make the necessary cuts in budget authority, rests with OMB [Office of Management and Budget]."
