Budget Reconciliation—A Conversation with Peter Robinson, Former Senate Senior Assistant Parliamentarian

Congress is currently considering economic stimulus legislation using the reconciliation process to address the economic challenges brought on by the COVID-19 crisis. The House and Senate will consider reconciliation under the Congressional Budget Act’s procedural rules. In the Senate a reconciliation bill cannot be filibustered and requires only a simple majority for passage. Extraneous provisions can be ruled out of order under the terms of the Byrd Amendment. Join Peter Robinson in this webinar hosted by King & Spalding, as he guides us through the reconciliation procedural process and offers unique insight on key considerations and hurdles to overcome.
