Virtual Event: What Can You Do With Reconciliation?

Feb 11, 2021 | Budget Process

Congress advanced a budget resolution allowing up to $1.9 trillion of additional spending or tax cuts through a process known as budget reconciliation. This powerful tool allows legislation to pass with a simple majority in the Senate, but includes many hurdles such as the famed Byrd rule.

A panel of experts (featuring two former staff members of the Senate Budget Committee) discussed how reconciliation works and what it might mean for potential COVID relief legislation.

Panelists:

Marc Goldwein, Senior Vice President, Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget
Tori Gorman, Policy Director, The Concord Coalition
Zach Moller, Deputy Director of the Economics Program, Third Way
