Senate Expected to Vote on Budget Plan

The Senate is expected to vote early this week on the compromise concurrent budget resolution (Senate Concurrent Resolution 11) which lays out a budget plan for the Committees to fund programs for Fiscal Year 2016.  Once the Senate approves, the next steps will include the relevant committees writing legislation to implement the outline in the budget resolutions.  A budget resolution does not go to the President for approval and it does not become law.  However, the resulting legislation must be passed by both the House and Senate and signed by the President to become law.
