Senate Panel to Set Spending Allocations

June 14, 2013—The Senate Appropriations Committee is scheduled to approve its subcommittee allocations for the FY 2014 spending bills June 20.

Senate Appropriations Chair Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) has indicated the committee will use an overall spending cap of $1.058 trillion, which is about $72 billion higher than the current year’s cap.  This also is the limit mandated by the Budget Control Act [P.L. 112-25] before sequestration.

The House Appropriations Committee approved its allocations in late May using an overall spending cap of $967 billion, which factors in sequestration [see Washington Highlights, May 24].

The allocations, also known as 302b's, limit the total amount of funding each subcommittee can appropriate to the programs under its jurisdiction.

Committee staff have indicated that the Labor-HHS-Education subcommittee likely will consider its FY 2014 bill in mid to late July.
