Budget Deal Still Leaves Non-Defense Appropriations Below 2010 Level

Center on Budget and Policy Priorities - Tue, 08/06/2019 - 9:54am

The budget deal’s boost in non-defense discretionary (NDD) funding will only maintain NDD at about its 2019 level for the next two years, after adjusting for inflation, and won’t return NDD to its level of 2010. Claims that the deal provides very large NDD increases are true only when it’s measured against the 2011 Budget Control Act’s (BCA) very low sequestration-reduced funding targets, which policymakers have consistently overridden, acknowledging that they’re too low to meet national needs.
