Getting Back to Business … as Usual? Legislative Spending in the 113th Congress
In the first half of 2013, NTUF found that the House would increase spending and the Senate would decrease expenditures.
On net, the 113th Congress proposed almost $1.3 trillion in new spending in the first six months of 2013.
In the first half of 2013, the House sponsored 434 budget-influencing, non-overlapping measures that would, if enacted, result in a $1.2 trillion spending increase per year.
If all of the 225 non-overlapping measures introduced by the Senate were made law, the federal government would shrink by $46.8 billion annually.
What is BillTally?
Since 1991, NTUF has computed the legislative spending agendas of Members of Congress by analyzing the costs – and savings – of the bills that they sponsor and cosponsor as part of our BillTally research project. Our goal is to provide the public, and the media, with objective, quantifiable information on what Members would like to do with the tax dollars that are sent to Washington.
