Filed under: Industry Updates — Editor @ 11:12 am

On January 28, 2010, during consideration of H.J.Res 45, the bill to increase the nation’s debt limit by roughly $ 2.2 trillion, the Senate amended the underlying legislation to reinstate a set of budgetary rules known as Pay-Go requirements. This legislation mandates that all bills that Congress enacts, which are not paid for through increased revenues or decreased spending, can result in an across-the-board cut in government spending.
