Appropriations Deadline

With another shutdown deadline on horizon, senators seek budget process reform

By Jory Heckman, Federal News Radio

With the prospect of yet another government shutdown deadline in less than a month, two members of the Senate Budget Committee — one Democrat, one Republican — agree that the current process of funding the federal government needs a serious overhaul.

Earlier this month, Congress ended an hours-long shutdown by passing the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, which raises spending caps $300 billion higher than current levels for the next two years. However, lawmakers still must pass an appropriations measure before midnight on March 23.

Lawmakers have yet to pass a comprehensive budget for fiscal 2018, even though the fiscal year is nearly halfway over. And yet, Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) said he’s not surprised, because Congress has almost never passed an on-time budget in recent memory.
