JOINT EXPLANATORY STATEMENT OF CONFERENCE COMMITTEE
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 906. Application of Budget Process to Fiscal Year 1976
The Senate amendment provided for an application of the congressional budget process for fiscal year 1976 under certain conditions. The conference substitute provides that upon agreement by the Budget Committees, and to the extent provided by such committees in reports to their respective Houses, the procedures of Title III and sections 202(f), 401, and 402 may be applied to the 1976 fiscal year. The managers anticipate that this advance application will be undertaken only if adequate preparation has been made, that it will be limited to certain parts of the congressional budget process, and that to the extent necessary substitute dates will be used. The managers recognize that it may not be feasible to go beyond the first budget resolution.
