According to The Hill:

President Trump’s budget chief met with House Appropriations Committee Chairman Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-N.J.) on Friday to discuss a White House proposal to pull back some of the federal spending increases that Congress passed last month.

Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told The Hill that the Administration is still working out the details of a package of rescissions that will rescind some of the funding hikes that were recently adopted in the 2018 omnibus spending bill.


The package is expected to come in several pieces, the first of which could land on Capitol Hill early next month. It would then need to be approved by both chambers with a simple majority vote.” Read the full article here.

ANCOR has been tracking the “rescission” proposal, as it is known, since the White House first floated it. Once more details about the plan emerge we will inform our members.
