Today in Congress: (a thread)

Senate: Convenes at 9:30 a.m. to consider a two-year debt limit and spending caps bill (HR 3877). At 11 a.m. the Senate is expected to vote on an amendment from Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., on a motion to

(#BIPARTISAN is a swear word...)
invoke cloture on the bill, on a possible motion to waive the Budget Act with respect to the bill and on final passage. Additional votes are possible on six district judge nominees.

(this one's blah.. but keep reading!)
Introduced in House (07/23/2019)
Bipartisan Budget Act of 2019

This bill increases discretionary spending limits, suspends the debt limit, and modifies budget enforcement procedures.

The bill increases the FY2020 and FY2021 discretionary spending limits for

defense and nondefense spending. The bill also (1) specifies limits for Overseas Contingency Operations funding, which is exempt from discretionary spending limits; and (2) requires the FY2020 discretionary spending limits to be adjusted to accommodate specified
funding for the 2020 Census.

The bill suspends the public debt limit through July 31, 2021. On August 1, 2021, the limit will be increased to accommodate obligations issued during the suspension period. #TURNDOWNFORWHAT

The bill also includes provisions that
set forth procedures for enforcing spending and revenue levels consistent with this bill as if they were included in congressional budget resolutions for FY2020 and FY2021;
specify limits on advance appropriations;
extend the sequestration (automatic spending cuts) for certain mandatory spending programs through FY2029;
extend the authority (#LONGGRAB) to collect certain customs user fees through FY2029;
extend and modify Senate points of order regarding advance appropriations (#FUTURETHEFT), certain changes in mandatory programs (CHIMPs), and designations of funds for Overseas Contingency Operations (#WARTIMEBINGO);
reset the balances on the Pay-As-You-Go (PAYGO) scorecards established by the Statutory Pay-As-You-Go Act of 2010. (PAYGO ACT: g.co/kgs/Fi7Aub)
