Counsel Notes
Committee Print STATEMENT (BBA 2015)

The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 (Pub. L. 114-74) did not have any committee report, nor a House Budget Committee print like the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013 (Pub. L. 113-69). The Counsel for the House Budget Committee did prepare a report, which included this description:

Sec. 815. Change to cap adjustment authority

Increases the level of the cap adjustment spending for program integrity as allowed under the Budget Control Act. Additional funding totals $484 million FY 2017-2020. Expands the use of funds to include CDI units, Special Assistant United States Attorneys who prosecute Social Security fraud, and work-related continuing disability reviews.
