Counsel Notes
Amending Social Security As Extraneous

Subparagraph (F) refers back to section 310(g) (CBA), which prohibits the inclusion of any recommendations to changes Social Security in a reconciliation measure.  For this purpose, Social Security is defined as  Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) program established under Title II of the Social Security Act. This does not not include Medicare, Medicaid, or other programs that are included in the Social Security Act or are included in Chapter 7 of Title 42 of the U.S. Code (Social Security).

Cross Reference to Social Security

Section 310(g) (CBA) reads as follows:

(g) Limitation on Changes to the Social Security Act.— Notwithstanding any other provision of law, it shall not be in order in the Senate or the House of Representatives to consider any reconciliation bill or reconciliation resolution reported pursuant to a concurrent resolution on the budget agreed to under section 301 or 304, or a joint resolution pursuant to section 258C of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985, or any amendment thereto or conference report thereon, that contains recommendations with respect to the old-age, survivors, and disability insurance program established under title II of the Social Security Act.
