Bipartisan Budget Act of 2019
Bipartisan Budget Act of 2019, Pub. L. 116-37; 133 Stat. 1049; August 2, 2019; H.R. 3877 (116th Congress)
The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2019 was negotiated between the Congress and the President in late July of 2019, and replicated the previous three agreements in form and the content, while varying in the specifics, was similar in the subjects they addressed to the BBA 2013, BBA 2015, and BBA 2018. Media reports indicated that the Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin negotiated the deal with Speaker Pelosi. Budget negotiations vary as to those who take the lead in coming to the terms, colloquially called being “at the table.” In this case, it appears the House Republicans were largely shunted aside, with some conservative Members maintaining the spending limits should be observed and that spending should be reduced in relation to increasing the debt limit.
