Event Description

Join USCHS President & CEO Jane Campbell and David Hawkings, founding editor in chief of The Fulcrum, for a conversation about the history and logistics of the budget reconciliation process. Created by the Congressional Budget Act of 1974, and first used in 1980, this rule allows expedited consideration of spending measures with passage determined by a simple majority vote. An end-run around the filibuster? A legislative express lane? Learn why the story is not quite that straightforward. Audience Q&A welcomed at the end of the session.
