H.R. 5835 (101st): Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990
On the Conference Report in the House

This was a vote to pass H.R. 5835 (101st) in the House.

The Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990 (OBRA-90; Pub.L. 101–508, 104 Stat. 1388, enacted November 5, 1990) is a United States statute enacted pursuant to the budget reconciliation process to reduce the United States federal budget deficit. The Act included the Budget Enforcement Act of 1990 which established the "pay-as-you-go" or "PAYGO" process for discretionary spending and taxes.

The Act was signed into law by President George Bush on November 5, 1990, counter to his 1988 campaign promise not to raise taxes. This became an issue in the presidential election of 1992.
