Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO commented on H.R. 2025, a bill to amend the Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act. The bill requires major changes to the budget process and addresses a wide variety of key issues, including the concurrent resolution process, the reconciliation process, a comprehensive appropriation bill, an automatic continuing resolution, a federal credit control system, off-budget agencies, a capital investment budget, dedicated revenue incentives, and the impoundment control process. GAO supports the objectives of the proposed changes and believes that, if enacted, the bill will improve the congressional budget process.
