White House Mulling Second Rescission Proposal

Share this page

According to Politico Pro:

“The Trump administration is eyeing a second attempt to force Congress to roll back federal spending, after its last attempt collapsed in the GOP-led Senate, according to the chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee as well as a Senate leadership source.

The Office of Management and Budget is said to be considering a second package of so-called rescissions, with just weeks to go until Congress’ next budget deadline.

OMB officials did not return a request for comment and it’s not known yet what spending the White House might try to cut or eliminate this time around.

[…]

If the White House moves quickly, its next rescissions package could arrive in the middle of a separate major funding fight on Capitol Hill. Lawmakers have until Sept. 30 to send roughly $1.4 trillion in fiscal 2019 funding to President Donald Trump’s desk or risk a funding lapse.”

ANCOR followed the first rescission proposal because of it contained cuts to CHIP. Should a second rescission proposal emerge and contain components affecting the I/DD community, we will bring this to the attention of our members.
