"*" indicates required fields

1. This resolution balances the federal budget within 5 years. Under the plan, federal spending is frozen in fiscal year 2023 and then gradually reduced over the next five years by cutting spending by 6 pennies for every dollar. The measure would yield a $65.8 billion surplus by 2027 and would collectively spend $4.2 trillion less than is projected by the Congressional Budget Office to be spent over that period.*
2. This amendment to the "Inflation Reduction Act" requires the Department of the Interior to authorize at least two leases per year for five years in the Gulf of Mexico to oil producers. Furthermore, the department must authorize at least one lease in the Alaskan Cook Inlet.*
3. This measure places a $35 price control on all out-pocket costs or copayments for insulin products. The bill applies to all private health insurance and Medicare prescription drug benefits.*
4. This bill, the "Chips and Science Act" provides $52.7 billion in subsidies to manufacturers of semiconductors plus an additional $24 billion in tax credits. The bill also provides over $200 billion in additional funding to the National Science Foundation and the Departments of Energy and Commerce for initiatives surrounding STEM, R&D, and workforce and economic development programs.*
5. This amendment to the "Inflation Reduction Act" would expand Medicaid under Obamacare (free healthcare for individuals earning up to 138% of the federal poverty level) to the 12 red states that have not yet expanded Medicaid. This includes the states of Texas, Florida, Wisconsin, Georgia, South Carolina, Mississippi, Kansas, Wyoming, Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina and South Dakota.*
6. This amendment to the "Respect for Marriage Act" ensures the federal government does not take any discriminatory action against an individual due to their religious beliefs on marriage. Discriminatory actions include targeting by the IRS or Department of Education and exclusion from any federal grants, loans, entitlements, scholarships, employment, or contracting opportunities.*
7. The "Additional Ukraine Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2022" provides $40.1 billion in additional funding to Ukraine due to the Russian invasion, which follows the $14 billion Congress sent the country a couple months prior.*
8. This amendment to a massive spending bill adds the "Pregnant Workers Fairness Act" into the underlying bill. This Act makes it an unlawful employment practice if an employer with 15 or more employees fails to provide a series of new benefits and accommodations to a pregnant employee or job applicant. For example, a cause of action can now be brought against an employer if they fail to provide additional break periods, require an employee to take leave due to a pregnancy limitation if a reasonable accommodation could be provided, or do not provide certain amenities, such as a stool to sit on during the workday.*
9. This resolution nullifies (eliminates) the new rules that were imposed by the Department of Education which create additional hurdles for charter schools to receive federal funding. For example, the rules require charter school applicants to prove a need and community support for the charter school, undergo analysis for the enrollment and diversity of the school, and disclose contracts the charter school may have with for-profit companies.*
10. This amendment to the "Consolidated Appropriations Act” (which funds government through fiscal year 2023), eliminates hundreds of pages of earmarks within the spending package. These earmarks, which total $9.8 billion represent pet projects that individual members of congress had added into the bill. "*
11. This amendment to the "Consolidated Appropriations Act" (which funds government through fiscal year 2023), would prevent border management funds from being utilized by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to transport Migrants within the U.S. unless to a deportation location or detention facility. The amendment is in response to a leaked DHS plan wherein the agency would pay to transport individuals who entered the country unlawfully to destinations away from the border and deeper into the U.S.*
12. The "Bipartisan Safer Communities Act" is touted by its supporters as the largest gun safety package since the 1994 assault weapons ban. The bill establishes enhanced background checks for individuals under 21 years of age, closes the "boyfriend loophole", and channels billions of dollars into community programs and mental health services. Furthermore, the bill provides $750 million to states for "red flag" programs whereby any individual may seek to have a firearm immediately taken away from another person through an "ex-parte" (one-sided) petition to a court if the individual alleges the person is a danger to themselves or others.*
13. This amendment to a massive spending bill, provides an additional $1 Billion to the World Trade Center Health Program. This program, which currently has over 100,000 enrollees, provides compensation for health conditions that individuals may develop who were near the Twin Towers on 9/11 or sometime over the following 9 months. This includes not only first responders, but also residents, workers, teachers, students, tourists, etc. Due to the benefits of the program, such as compensation for physical and mental health conditions - including loss of income and pain and suffering that may have been incurred from the event - the trust fund continues to run low on funds and outpace expected expenditures.*
14. This amendment to the treaty document backing Finland's and Sweden's accession to NATO clarifies that Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty does not supersede the constitutional requirement that Congress declare war before the United States engages in war.*
15. The "Inflation Reduction Act" serves as a slightly deflated version of the Biden Administrations "Build Back Better" social spending package. For example, the bill contains $369 billion in additional spending on climate and green energy policies and $64 billion in subsidies to prevent insurance premium spikes under the Affordable Care Act. Furthermore, the bill provides $80 billion to the IRS to hire 87,000 additional agents and imposes a 15% corporate alternative minimum tax.*
