Legislative Information

OMB works with Congress on congressional appropriations, authorizing, and budgeting processes to enact the President’s Budget and legislative proposals. OMB coordinates the Administration’s proposed legislation, testimony, reports, and other documents to ensure consistency with Administration policies, including the President’s Budget. OMB also prepares Statements of Administration Policy for certain bills scheduled for House or Senate floor action, analyzes legislation that changes revenues or direct spending, and has responsibility under the Statutory Pay-As-You-Go Act of 2010 (PAYGO) for publishing a scorecard itemizing the budgetary effects of enacted legislation.
