House Bill Would Change Spending Limit Agreement and Cut More from Nutrition

On May 7, the Budget Committee in the House of Representatives passed a bill that would alter automatic cuts to government spending, which are set to take place on January 2, 2013. Three days later, the full House passed the same bill by a vote of 218 to 99.

The bill would eliminate automatic cuts for defense spending and for non-defense spending such as food and nutrition programs. In their place, the bill would create one cap for both types of spending. Under the new plan defense spending would not be cut, while non-defense spending would see cuts equal to that of sequestration ($27 billion). To pay for the elimination of the sequestration, the House also passed a bill cutting $300 billion from mandatory program savings. These cuts disproportionally hit programs aimed at helping lower-income families. The bill now moves to the Senate where it will face steep opposition.
