In today's class, we will continue our discussion of Congressional budgeting procedures, focusing on various techniques that have been introduced over the years to facilitate budgeting in the face of political constraints.
Please read the student briefing papers on the budget reconciliation process and the use of continuing resolutions. Then choose one of the other two briefing papers to read – either on the use of earmarks or the use of appropriations riders.
Team Assignment: (Teams A, D, E & H) Write a short (3-5 page) memorandum explaining which, if any, of the reform proposals discussed in the background readings you would endorse based on our discussions over the past week.
