The House has started the Appropriations season by adopting an FY2023 deeming resolution, setting a $1.6 trillion discretionary ceiling to match President Biden’s budget request. Chairwoman Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) announced a schedule for Subcommittee and Full Committee markups beginning Wednesday, June 15th.

Although a top-line agreement has not yet been reached, the four top Appropriators in the House and Senate are still negotiating the defense and non-defense numbers. However, it is still unlikely that an agreement will be reached and that all twelve appropriations bills will be passed before the end of the fiscal year on September 30th, resulting in a continuing resolution (CR) that will fund the government through the midterm elections.
