Counsel Notes

The managers on the part of the House and the Senate of the conference of the two Houses on the amendments of the Senate to the bill (H.R. 7130) issued an explanatory statement of the legislation. This was included in a House Budget Committee print in 1975 after the bill’s enactment. It included the following description of this section:

Section 306. Budget Committee Jurisdiction

This section, similar to provisions in both the House and Senate versions, provided that a matter within the jurisdiction of a Budget Committee may be considered only if it has been reported from that committee, if it is an amendment to a bill or resolution reported by the Budget Committee, or if the committee has been discharged from its consideration.
