Two-Year Budget Agreement Sent To President By Congress

The Senate voted 67-28 today to pass and send to the president a two-year budget agreement, the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2019 (H.R. 3877), that increases discretionary funding limits and suspends the debt limit through July 31, 2021. This legislative package is partially offset, including with a two-year extension of mandatory sequestration.
