Congress Passes Budget Deal

On August 2, President Trump signed the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2019 (H.R. 3877), which raises the discretionary government spending caps for fiscal years 2020 and 2021. While the House has already begun work on government funding appropriations for 2020, the Senate was delaying action until a topline budget was in place. With members from both houses of Congress now back in their home states and districts for the August recess, they will be under a time crunch when they return to D.C. to keep the government funded to avoid an end of September shutdown.
