Saving Over Spending Act - Allows 50% of any unobligated balance of an appropriated amount available for salaries and expenses that would otherwise expire at the end of a fiscal year to remain available for expenditure for the subsequent fiscal year and allocates the other 50% for deficit reduction.

House Republican Conference Summary

The summary below was written by the House Republican Conference, which is the caucus of Republicans in the House of Representatives.


No summary available.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
