Summary of Two Year Budget Agreement

The FY 20 budget agreement provides a 4% increase for domestic programs than in FY 19. A four percent increase is also in marked comparison to the Administration’s budget request for a 10% overall cut to domestic programs.

However,  the Senate now needs to allot funding to each of its twelve Appropriations Subcommittees. They will probably allot less for their Labor-HHS bill than was available in the House, and then go to a House-Senate conference this fall.
